Events that happened this weekend in Church History

Pope Benedict VII Blessed Pope Eugene III Blessed Pope Benedict XI Pope Gregory XV    This weekend we commemorate not two, not three, but the death of four Popes over the centuries beginning with Pope Benedict VII, the 134th successor of Peter, whose 1,067th anniversary is on Sunday; the 167th in the line of Peter, Blessed Pope Eugene III. who died 845 years ago on Friday as well as Blessed Pope Benedict XI, the 194th successor of Peter who was purportedly poisoned 696 years to the date on Saturday. Finally, we remember the 234th to be bestowed with the papal crown Pope Gregory XV who died 377 years ago on Saturday.

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.
