Events that happened today in Church History

Saint Thomas More    Today is the actual date of the death in 1535 of Saint Thomas More, Patron Saint of Lawyers, even though his feast day is celebrated on June 22nd in the Church Liturgy. As England's top chancellor, he was beheaded by Henry VIII because Thomas refused to bow to a king who would not recognize the King of Kings and the Church which Christ founded. Rather than opting for the easy way out and riches for the rest of his life, Thomas chose the path of martyrdom and eternal riches that cannot be measured.

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.

    If the Holy Spirit is prompting you, please please pray on it and then please e-mail the editor
