Archbischop of Krakow, Karol Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, came out on the balcony of St Peter’s Basilica under a rising full moon as Pope John Paul II immediately after his election on October 16th, 1978. News of his election was greeted with disbelief, amazement and joy in Poland and analysts said the election would give a big boost to the church in eastern Europe. He was the first non-Italian pope to be elected in four centuries.The last non-Italian elected to the Papacy, Dutchman Adrian VI, was pelted with stones when he appeared in public to greet his flock for the first time.

Pope’s homily at Mass on World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Pope Francis’ homily at Holy Mass on Sunday in St. Peter’s Basilica on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. This year I wanted to celebrate the World Day of Migrants and Refugees with a Mass that invites and welcomes you especially who are migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. Some of you have recently arrived in Italy, others are long-time residents and work here, and still others make up the so-called “second-generation”. For everyone in this assembly, the Word of God has resonated and today invites us to deepen the special call that the Lord addresses to each one of us. As he did with Samuel (cf 1 Sm 3:3b-10,19), he calls us by name and asks us to honour the fact that each of us has been created a unique and unrepeatable being, each different from the others and each with a singular role in the history of the world. In the Gospel (cf Jn 1:35-42), the two disciples of John ask Jesus, “Where do you live?” (v. 38), implying that the reply to this question would determine their judgment upon the master from Nazareth. The response of Jesus, “Come and see!” (v. 39) opens up to a personal encounter which requires sufficient time to welcome, to know and to acknowledge the other. In the Message for this year’s World Day of Migrants and Refugees I have written, “Every stranger who knocks at our door is an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ, who identifies with the welcomed and rejected strangers of every age (Mt 25:35,43).” And for the stranger, the migrant, the refugee, the asylum seeker and the displaced person, every door in a new land is also an opportunity encounter Jesus.

catholic_saints_33. Second Sunday of Ordinary Time

Gospel JN 2:1-11

There was a wedding

Second Sunday of Ordinary Time Gospel JN 2:1-11 There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." And Jesus said to her, "Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you." Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings, each holding twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus told the them, "Fill the jars with water." So they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, "Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter." So they took it.  And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from — although the servers who had drawn the water knew —, the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, "Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now." Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him. #catholic #christian #saint #church #jesus #mary #catholicism #prolife #deusvult #bible #divinemercy #crusades #vatican #pope #papal #theology #virginmary #exorcist #exorcism #pope #blessed #christianity #feastday #jesuit #franciscan #catholiclegion

The sun retreating across the Quirinale Palace and a #classical, #Renaissance statue of either Castor or Pollux (nobody is sure which is which; the other is out of the frame) and his #horse. The Piazza del #Quirinale is atop the highest hill in Rome with breathtaking views to the west and south. . . . The story behind the statues: #Castor and #Pollux were half brothers and twins — they were born at the same time from the same mother, but somehow had different fathers (don’t ask). Other large statues of the same pair oversee the top of the stairs at the nearby #Campidoglio. The obelisk in the photo was brought back to Rome from #Egypt after the #RomanConquest of the country. . . . Before Italy was unified, the pope summered in the 1,200-room Quirinale palace, moving from the Vatican when the heat made the stench from the #Tiber river became too much to bear. The palace housed the civil affairs of the Papal States, and it also hosted four #Papal #Conclaves. After #unification in 1871, the building was the formal home to four Italian #kings, and after the monarchy was abolished in 1946, it became the home and office of the Italian president.
