Events that happened during this time in Church History

Martin Luther Henry VIII    Monday and Tuesday are important dates in Church history for they signalled change of direction in the Church. One was the downfall of one man and the rise of Christianity, the other was the fall of grace of two men who played a significant role in the Protestant rebellion also called the Reformation. Only recently have efforts been made to reconcile and bring Lutherans and Anglicans back into the true fold. We can thank John Paul the Great for that. Monday is the 495th anniversary of the day Martin Luther entered the Augustinian monastery where he allowed satan to enter and fill him with pride. Tuesday is the 1,936th anniversary of the infamous fire of Rome in 64 A.D. set by the Emperor Nero who tried to blame it on the Christians. From that day forward, though they were persecuted greatly, they rose in numbers as the famed historian Tertullian predicted: "From the blood of the martyrs comes the seed of Christianity." Tuesday also marks the 464th anniversary of the day in 1536 when King Henry VIII, already excommunicated by Pope Clement VII, declared that from henceforth Papal authority would no longer be followed in England, making all pronouncements from Rome null and void and the beginning of the persecutions by the Church of England.

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.
