Our Lady Requested First Saturday Devotions – EWTN Makes It Easy!
By Michelle Laque Johnson

The world is becoming increasingly de-Christianized. Abortion, now known as “womens’ rights.” Euthanasia, now known as “mercy killing.” Same-sex “marriage,” now considered a “civil right.” Violence, sexual perversity, body mutilation, seeking altered states of consciousness, the occult.

BOOKMARK

POPE FRANCIS

Following the unique circumstances that lead to the election of Pope Francis, millions around the world were clamoring to know: "Just who is this man who is now Pope Francis?" "EWTN Bookmark" Host Doug Keck finds answers to this question in an exclusive interview with Dr. Matthew Bunson, author of the new biography, "Pope Francis." While the book follows the early life and works of the former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, Dr. Bunson's work also presents an unbiased account of the days following Pope Benedict XVI's resignation—and the media frenzy that followed.
