False Voices

Homily Jesus is the Good Shepherd and we are his sheep. His disciples and we are to respond to his voice calling us and leading us into our vocation. Not only do the sheep follow because they know His voice, but we are told they will not follow the voice of strangers. This speaks of the single-minded devotion that we are to have to our Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd leads us to green pastures, the pastures of life, this abundant life.

Murdered Nigerian seminarian was killed for announcing gospel, killer says

According to the newspaper, Mustapha praised Nnadi’s “outstanding bravery,” and that the seminarian “told him to his face to change his evil ways or perish.”

Throughout the 1930s, Pacelli repeatedly drew the attention of the diplomatic corps to the fact that Hitler and his racist ideology was a huge problem for humankind. After a number of sensational articles appeared in the press, I thought it was time to publish English translations of the audience minutes and other documents which I transcribed several years ago, from two Vatican archival collections.
