Catholics and Jews working together in new Menorah exhibit – Vatican Connections
In this episode, we look at a meeting between Pope Francis and an international Jewish delegation; the Holy Father’s speech to university students of Roma Tre; his pastoral visit to a local parish; and the Secretariat of State’s recent decision to monitor the use of the Pope’s image.
Bishop Barron on Evangelizing Through the Good
Revealing the truth of God through rational arguments and displaying the beauty of God through artwork are two powerful means of evangelization. A third path, however, comes in the form of the good. The radicality of the Christian life concretely and heroically lived out draws people to the love of God.
WITNESS – David Delgado
Born in Mexico in 1989, David ́s family moved to Toronto when he was 9. He attended high school at Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School and thereafter graduated from the University of Toronto receiving an HBA in International Relations.
While completing his last year of studies at U of T, in 2013, David received the opportunity to participate in a summer exchange program to Israel. From there everything changed for him. The vast history, rich culture, and diverse practice of faiths in the Middle East captured his full attention.
He fell in love with the Holy Land and returned a year later to volunteer in a new and exciting project in Galilee called Magdala, the hometown of Mary Magdalene on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.
As part of the Magdala and Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center team, David is in charge of leading the coordination and development of communication channels, seeking new opportunities to spread Magdala ́s message abroad and working with his team to ensure the vision of Magdala is brought to life. Currently David is working on completing his MA in Latin American, Iberian and Israeli Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The Pope Video 03 -2017- Support for Persecuted Christians – March 2017
In many parts of the world, there are Christians who are persecuted simply because of the fact that they are Christians. They need not only our material help but also our prayer. Let us join with the Pope in praying for persecuted Christians.
“How many people are being persecuted because of their faith, forced to abandon their homes, their places of worship, their lands, their loved ones!
They are persecuted and killed because they are Christians. Those who persecute them make no distinction between the religious communities to which they belong.
I ask you: how many of you pray for persecuted Christians?
Do it with me, that they may experience the support of all the Churches and communities, through prayer and material assistance.”
