Events that happened during these two days in Church History

Pope John XXIIIPope Pius XII   Thursday, the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, was a popular day for Sovereign Pontiffs to release encyclicals with sixth having been issued on this feast beginning with Pope Benedict XIV in 1748 to 1959 and Pope John XXIII's first encyclical on truth, unity and peace, entitled Ad Petri Cathedram. This came a year after Pope Pius XII ushered his next-to-last encyclical, aimed at the Chinese Bishops and Red China as a whole in warning them of problems if they did not conform with Rome. Forty-two years later the problem has not improved and it has caused the Vatican to recently issue the final warning of excommunication if they do not follow the Holy See's directives.

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



    We have had a few translators who have volunteered their help, but our goal is to secure at least two translators for each language in order not to put a burden on one person but spread the workload out. We still need volunteer translators for Italian, Portuguese, German and Spanish as well as more help for Russian and French. 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.
