Catholic Church in Rome restores handshakes during mass

The Catholic Church reintroduced handshakes during mass, according to a report Saturday. The continued loosening of pandemic-era protocols by the church was relayed in a letter from the Italian Bishops’ Conference, publicized by the country’s public broadcaster, RAI, and other Italian media. “It will be possible to restore the usual form of exchanging the sign of peace,” the Italian Bishops’ Conference (CEI) said in a letter to bishops published on its website. Handshakes typically occur with the “sign of peace,” which comes after the Lord’s prayer and before the sacrament of Holy Communion in the Catholic mass. During the pandemic the greeting was prohibited, and last year the CEI partially restored the greeting but only through eye contact or a bow of the head.

Opinion: We Live In An Ego-Driven World - And That's OK

For the last fifty years, I have studied every major religion in the world. I have read thousands of books about every culture, creed, and spiritual belief. God comes to us as we believe God to be.

As you have probably guessed by now, I am a part of the former.

TNT Volleyball Club: new facility, expanding local youth participation

In its sixth year of existence, Glenside’s TNT Volleyball Club has generated more teams, court time, and enthusiasm than its new facility can handle. This year’s fall tryouts saw over 800 boys and girls, some as young as 11 years old, vying for 450 spots across 34 teams.

‘Unveiled: Surviving La Luz del Mundo’ Is a Horrifying Exposé of a Megachurch’s Pedophilic Predators

Religion, self-help, and horrific sexual abuse are frequent bedfellows, as detailed by Spotlight (about the Catholic Church), The Vow (about NXIVM), Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey (about the FLDS), Wild Wild Country (about guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh’s New Age movement), and numerous other modern exposés. In terms of sheer despicableness, however, few nonfiction affairs can match Unveiled: Surviving La Luz del Mundo, a three-part HBO offering (Dec. 6) about La Luz del Mundo (“The Light of the World”). A Christian church-cum-cult that now spans the globe with a reported 5 million members, its doctrine revolves around strict loyalty and obedience...
