Pope Francis says Olympics are chance for 'unity' in France
Quick Glance: Paris' Rich Olympic History Unveiled
  • Paris hosted the Summer Olympics in 1900 and 1924.

  • The 1900 Games were peculiar and barely accepted as part of the Olympic canon.

Remains of ancient Papal palace believed to have been found in Rome
Quick Glance: Discovery of Possible Ancient Papal Palace Remains in Rome
  • Excavations in Rome uncovered the remains of a medieval palace where popes lived before establishing the Vatican as their residence.

  • The building's structure was expanded between the 9th and 13th centuries and housed the papacy until 1305 when it was temporarily moved to Avignon, France.

  • The area around St. John Lateran is being renovated ahead of the upcoming Jubilee, expected to attract over 30 million pilgrims and tourists to Rome.

  • The excavations are part of preparations for the 2025 Catholic Holy Year or Jubilee, during which Catholics can receive special indulgences for fulfilling certain conditions and performing good deeds or pilgrimages.

Pope Francis Decries Populism and Says There’s a ‘Cancer’ Ailing Democracy
Quick Glance: Pope deplores state of democracy, warns against 'populists'
  • Pope Francis decried the state of democracy and cautioned against 'populists' during his brief visit to Trieste in Italy's northeast on Sunday ahead of a 12-day trip to Asia -- the longest of his pontificate.

  • During his speech at the city's convention center to conclude a national Catholic event on the day of France's snap parliamentary vote, the Pope warned against 'ideological temptations and populists' without naming specific countries.

  • He likened ideologies to the Pied Piper of Hamelin: they seduce but ultimately lead to self-denial.

  • Leading up to the recent European parliament elections, bishops in various countries also expressed concerns about the surge of populism and nationalism, given the existing power dynamics of far-right parties in Italy, Hungary, and the Netherlands.

Quick Glance: Vatican Excommunicates Former US Ambassador Vigano for Schism
  • The Vatican has excommunicated its former ambassador to the U.S., Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, after finding him guilty of schism, marking the culmination of his status as a firebrand conservative who emerged as one of the most fervent critics of Pope Francis and a representation of the divided Catholic Church in the U.S. and globally.

  • The excommunication denotes that Vigano is now formally outside the church's realm, barred from participating in its sacraments due to committing the severe offense of schism.

  • Over time, Vigano garnered a following of like-minded conservatives and traditionalists as he delved deeper into various conspiracy theories, ranging from the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic to his notions of a 'Great Reset' and other unconventional ideas.

  • His stark assessments of the present state of the Catholic Church, echoed on platforms like Catholic social media and by bloggers with aligned ideologies on both sides of the Atlantic, mirrored an exaggerated depiction of the divide between U.S. ultra-conservatives and Pope Francis.
