    June 30th, 2015 by Hostess

    Vatican City, Jun 30, 2015 / 04:21 pm (CNA).- Pope Francis might chew coca leaves – or maybe sip coca tea – during his visit to Bolivia next week, the Vatican has said.

    Bolivian Culture Minister Marko Machicao told local media that Francis had asked to chew coca leaves in the country, one of several stops during his visit to South America July 5-13.

    The coca leaf, whose daily use and cultural importance in the Andes region rivals that of coffee in the United States, is embroiled in controversy in the international community because of its use as the main …read more

    June 30th, 2015 by Hostess

    Washington D.C., Jun 30, 2015 / 03:20 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Looking forward to Pope Francis’ September visit to the U.S., the nation’s bishops were exuberant on Tuesday, as the itinerary for the apostolic voyage was released.

    June 30th, 2015 by Hostess

    By Worthy News Staff

    (Worthy News)–An historic meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church is “getting closer every day,” a senior Orthodox prelate said in an interview published on June 28th, the UK Independent reported.

    The meeting between the head of the 1.2 billion member Roman Catholic Church and the head of Russian Orthodox Church – which counts some 165 million of the world’s 250 million Orthodox Christians – …read more

    10 Commandments Statue Must Be Removed, Oklahoma Supreme Court Rules

    June 30th, 2015 by Hostess

    By Worthy News Staff

    (Worthy News)– A Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds is a religious symbol and must be removed because it violates the state’s constitutional ban on using public property to benefit a religion, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

    The court said the Ten Commandments chiseled into the 6-foot-tall granite monument, which was privately funded by a Republican legislator, are “obviously religious in nature and are an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths.”

    The 7-2 ruling overturns a decision by a district court judge who determined the monument could stay. It prompted calls by a handful …read more

    June 30th, 2015 by Hostess

    Washington D.C., Jun 30, 2015 / 02:03 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- On Monday afternoon the Supreme Court of the United States temporarily halted Texas’ regulations on abortion clinics, which were upheld by an appellate court earlier in the month.

    The 2013 law increased safety regulations for abortion clinics and physicians who perform abortions, requiring all abortion clinics in the state to follow surgical …read more
