The Corporal Works of Mercy were carried out in special, creative and even fun ways as thousands of Catholic school students around the Diocese of Trenton spent a day performing works of service April 28.

Initiated by the diocesan Department of Catholic Schools, the third annual event, held in as many years, had students in grades Pre-K through 12 participating in various projects including collecting canned goods to be given to the poor, spending some quality time with senior citizens, hosting breakfasts for first responders and military personnel and cleaning and sprucing up nearby park grounds or beaches.

Unmask violence posing as holy, pope tells religious leaders in Egypt
CAIRO -- Calling his visit to Egypt a journey of "unity and fraternity," Pope Francis launched a powerful call to the nation's religious leaders to expose violence masquerading as holy and condemn religiously inspired hatred as an idolatrous caricature of God.

"Peace alone, therefore, is holy, and no act of violence can be perpetrated in the name of God, for it would profane his name," the pope told Muslim and Christian leaders at an international peace conference April 28. Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople was in attendance.

SUBSCRIBER EXCLUSIVE: Author recalls era when women fought Europe's 'glass ceiling'
European history between the years 1474, when Isabella became the regnant of Castile (in what is now Spain), until the death of the English queen Elizabeth Tudor in 1603 is a remarkable era for many reasons, one of which is the number of women -- 16 in total -- who played significant roles in ruling their respective countries either as queens in their own right or as queen mothers or regents.  More ...
