Events that happened today in Church History

Pope Saint Felix IV Pope Anastasius IVI    Wednesday is the anniversary of the election of two Popes, first Pope Saint Felix IV in 526. He was the 54th in the line of Peter and actually elevated through the machinations of Theodoric, the conniving King of the Goths. But the king did not count on Felix being more faithful to a higher King and for his fidelity to God the Pope was exiled. It is the 847th anniversary of the election of the 168th successor of Peter Pope Anastasius IV in 1153. This Roman-born pontiff died a year iand a half later on November 1, 1159. He was known as the gentle peacemaker and would have accomplished much more except his pontificate lasted only one and a half years.

For our Foreign editions, we still need translators!!!



    We have had a few translators who have volunteered their help, and are pretty well set to launch a Spanish edition in August. However we need others to come forward for Italian, Portuguese, French, German and Russian so we wll have at least two translators for each language in order not to put a burden on one person but spread the workload out. Once we have translators in place in order to polish the text to offer the DAILY CATHOLIC in these languages as it should be represented, we will launch, at first, a weekly edition in each of those languages which will be called the "Best of the DAILY CATHOLIC" for the past week. It will include the top news stories, features and timely columns along with the liturgy, devotions, and Church history timetable for the coming week. We are presently planning to debut Diario Cattolico on the Vigil of the Solemnity of the Assumption.
