Through Missal Launch widget Aleteia provides daily devotional materials, including the daily Gospel, saint of the day, a quote for reflection, and more.
As a digital publishing company Aleteia provides helpful apps as well as great articles and videos. Try Porta Fidei, an app that follows Pope Francis’s activities and delivers spiritual reading as well. More apps will be coming soon.
Aleteia is launching an ambitious project: a multimedia reference source on the central teachings of Catholicism, social issues, and life’s most important questions. Our Big Issues pages will be constantly updated with the best the Catholic world has to offer—the “pearls” of the internet.
We believe the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics deserve a voice that can compete with the CNNs and Al Jazeera’s. Aleteia is a global Catholic network that aspires to be just that.
We provide the latest news, expert commentary, and resources for evangelization.
Membership at Aleteia is central to our new evangelization mission.
In fact, we only exist to be of service to our users’ mission, as every Christian by virtue of his or her baptism is called and empowered by the Holy Spirit to be a witness of Christ’s love to the world.
Aleteia enlists the aid of experts drawn from every corner of the globe whose areas of interest cover an ever-expanding range of knowledge.
Aleteia also offers an ambitious partnership program from which we derive a significant portion of our content. Our partners, who presently number more than 1,400, are comprised of media organizations, educational institutions, religious communities, ecclesial movements, lay apostolates, dioceses, parishes, bloggers and more.
In 1944, Angelo Roncalli – Blessed Pope John XXIII – organized a network in Istanbul to save Jews and others persecuted by the Nazis. Now, an international conference in Jerusalem has proposed rediscovering the friendship and assistance that the Pontiff offered the Jewish people, especially during the Holocaust.
The meeting, which was held on 29 April, was presided over by Avner Shalev, Chairman of Yad Vashem, the institution created to honor the Holocaust victims and the heroes who risked their lives to save Jews during World War II.
One of the speakers was Baruch Tenenbaum, founder of the Raoul Wallenberg Foundation. In February 2011, Tenenbaum presented Yad Vashem with a scientific dossier to support the petition for John XXIII to be recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations.”
The recognition of “Righteous Among the Nations” bestows the highest honor on those who, without being of Jewish faith or descent, provided singular and altruistic assistance to the victims of the persecution undertaken by the National Socialist regime of the German Third Reich and similar groups in Europe before and during World War II.
The dossier shows, for example, that Bishop Roncalli, as the papal representative (apostolic delegate) in Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey before and during World War II, interceded with King Boris of Bulgaria on behalf of Bulgarian Jews, and with the Turkish government on behalf of Jewish refugees who had fled to Turkey. The dossier also notes that he made every effort to prevent the deportation of Greek Jews.
In 1944, in Istanbul, he organized a network to save Jews and others persecuted by Nazism, explains the Wallenberg Foundation dossier submitted to Yad Vashem.
Tenenbaum also reveals through the documents collected by his foundation that the position Roncalli promoted as Apostolic Nuncio in Paris on the UN vote to recognize the State of Israel was crucial for securing the support of Latin American countries.
Several Jewish organizations will be participating in the congress, which is helping to rediscover the figure of John XXIII in Israel, including Yad Vashem, the AJC (Global Jewish Advocacy), and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
At the meeting, participants will include Shear Yashuv Cohen, Chief Rabbi Emeritus of Haifa, Archbishop Fouad Twal (the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem), and several leading representatives of the Vatican, including Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, as well as numerous historians from universities in Israel and Italy.
I believe the best way to educate our children in the Faith is to model prayer and virtue for them. I blog on faith-based education and Carmelite spirituality.
