Canes and crutches are left behind at the Lac Ste. Anne pilgrimage site, evidence of healing miracles experienced at the sacred shore. Impressive stories of people being healed of diseases such as leprosy, entering the water lame and coming out walking, and other healings of various sorts are not hard to come by at the pilgrimage, which is likely the largest annual Church event in Western Canada, drawing tens of thousands of people, mainly Aboriginal.

WESTERN CATHOLIC REPORTER

Divine mercy is more than just a prayer for the Polish religious congregation Sisters of Merciful Jesus. It's more than an image, a novena, an hour or a feast day. Divine mercy is their charism – their special gift, and it is their spirituality – their way of living the Gospel.

SANTA CRUZ, BOLIVIA – Pope Francis visited one of Latin America's most notorious prisons, calling himself "a man who was and is saved from his many sins."

Long forgotten library opens doors to early Canadian history

July 27, 2015
EVAN BOUDREAU
THE CATHOLIC REGISTER

For years the outdated library in the basement of the Bathurst, N.B., diocesan offices saw more mice and rats than readers, said Bishop Daniel Jodoin. But when pipes burst during the spring thaw, new doors were opened to our nation's past. The flood waters brought closer inspection of the library and the discovery of historical texts dating back to Canada's earliest days.

GLEN ARGAN
WESTERN CATHOLIC REPORTER

From the beginning of his encyclical The Light of Faith, Pope Francis emphasized that faith is more than an intellectual act; it is an encounter with the person of Jesus Christ. That encounter, we learned, is a journey in which we grow, not only in knowledge, but in union with Christ. Moreover, it is a communal journey, not simply our own private trip. We journey in the Church.
