Trevor Francis
Sunday's World Cup championship game pits Pope Francis' native Argentina against retired Pope Benedict's native Germany. The Catholic Church has witnessed pope/anti-pope feuds. But it has never experienced two popes watching the soccer teams of their homelands battle it out for World Cup supremacy.  World Cup 2014 plays as a first for the Vatican for another reason. In a strictly technical sense, none of the previous 264 Popes had e ...

At that time, the Gregorian rite was the preserve of a vibrant minority of Catholics gratefully receiving the fruits of Ecclesi ...

Seriously, he could give Bill Clinton lessons in how to work a crowd.” He was by no means unsympathetic to this; but already there are signs of uncertainty. “His morning sermons are often extempori ...

ROME– Pope Francis says he refuses to travel in a “sardine can” bullet-proof Popemobile because, despite concerns for his security, at his age he has nothing to lose.
