asianews.it
: The Indian Church will soon have a new saint: Blessed Maria Teresa Chiramel Mankidiyan, foundress of the congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family. Msgr. James Pazhayattil, bishop of Irinjalakuda [deceased in 2016], said: "She is like Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Apart from the fact that they share the name, they have in common not only having founded a religious congregation - one the Missionaries of Charity, the other the Sisters of the Holy Family - but above all they have distinguished themselves for the service for the disadvantaged : poor, sick, marginalized, dying ". Born in Puthenchira (Kerala) on April 26, 1876, the blessed died at Kuzhikkattussery (also in Kerala) on June 8, 1926. Two days ago Pope Francis, receiving Card. Angelo Becciu, prefect of the Congregation for the...

Rome remembers celebrated Jesuit missionary kidnapped in Syria

By John L. Allen/ cruxnow.com
: On Wednesday, February 23, a torchlit rally took place in front of Rome’s Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore for Father Paolo Dall’Oglio, a native Roman and Jesuit missionary in Syria who disappeared in 2013, along with the thousands of both natives and foreigners who’ve been subject to kidnapping or arbitrary detention in Syria since violence broke out in 2011. Pope Francis met the family of his fellow Jesuit priest on Jan. 30 in his residence at the Domus Santa Marta on Vatican grounds, in a gesture a spokesman said was intended to show his “affection and proximity” to Dall’Oglio and his relatives. The pope had met the family once before, in 2014, near the first anniversary of Dall’Oglio’s disappearance. Like most journalists who’ve been in Rome a while, I know Dall’Oglio. For a long time...
