Events this weekend in Church History

    Saturday is the 436th anniversary of the day when Pope Pius IV officially closed the landmark 19th Ecumenical Council in the Tridentine mountain village in the remote regions of northern Italy. Because of its location it was forever remembered as the Council of Trent. It had been opened on November 19, 1544 by Pope Paul III lasting 19 years in which it condemned Protestantism, enacted reforms and launched the Counter Reformation.
