News and Such

*The Pope announced that 10 more Saints will be named soon. They include Blessed Jozef Damien de Veuster who worked in the leper colony in Hawaii. He also died of leprosy himself after serving those outcast for their disease.

*For Lent, the Archdiocese of New York has rolled out 24 hour confessions. I have never been to confession at 3am, but I guess if you have to go...

*In D.C., the Archdiocese is asking practicing Catholics to invite non-practicing Catholics back to Church. I love seeing the Church do what she was created to do - evangelize. So, I wholeheartedly support programs of this sort. They even have a website and this video below to get it going.
