Events that happened this weekend in Church History

Saint Philip NeriSaint Margaret Mary Alacoque    Saturday is the anniversary of the birth of two saints whose contribution to the Church helped considerably in the growth of the Faith and in fostering a hunger for saving souls. We observe the 484th anniversary of the birth of Saint Philip Neri in Florence, Italy who would go on to counsel many saints and be considered the "Apostle of Rome" and founder of the devoted lay organization Confraternity of the Most Holy Trinity. It is also the 353rd anniversary of the birth of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in the Burgundy region of France. As a willing victim soul for the Lord she was chosen by Jesus to reveal devotion to His Most Sacred Heart and His desire for Nine Consecutive First Fridays, Holy Hour and the establishment in the universal Church for a Feast in honor of His Sacred Heart.

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.
