Catholic News Stories Available from the Vatican and Washington

larger font

A story regarding concern that Adolph Hitler had plans to steal the Shroud of Turin is one of the stories featured on the Catholic News Service (CNS) daily audio and video reports available through the Diocesan Web site. The Hitler story is in the audio section of the CNS page, while a video story on Pope Benedict XVI’s recent visit to the Shroud, which currently is on public display, is on the video section of the page.

The CNS reports provide Catholics with up-to-date stories of interest that are often not carried by the secular media. Other examples of video stories available are the Vatican’s endorsement of a new adult stem cell research project being undertaken by the University of Maryland Medical Center and a report on the debate now underway regarding the National Day of Prayer following a recent court ruling.

Audio stories include a report on the new English version of the Roman Missal and a review of the film, “Letters to God.”

The CNS reports to the Diocese are made possible by donations to the annual Catholic Communication Campaign Collection, which will be taken up in parishes the weekend of May 15-16.

To access the audio and video reports, click on the CNS Video button on the right side of the Diocesan home page.
