Aid to the Church in Need

Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), a foundation of the Holy See, was promoted by Pope Pius XII and founded by P. Werenfried van Straaten in 1947, to pastorally help the Church in need or those suffering persecution throughout the world. It develops more than 5,000 projects per year in more than 140 countries throughout the world including the building or rebuilding of churches, support for vocations, means of transportation, editing of catechetical material and emergency help for the displaced. ACN seeks to promote prayer, inform and be a source of charity for the poor in the Church and those persecuted throughout the world.

Sharper than any two-edged sword

Sharper than any two-edged sword.”


“What would happen were we to treat the Bible as we treat our mobile phone?
Were we to open it several times a day; were we to read God’s messages
contained in the Bible as we read telephone messages, what would happen?”
    - Pope Francis, Angelus message, 5th March 2017


The Bible is a book of superlatives. It is the most translated, the most widely published, most widely purchased and also most widely read book in the world. And yet it is much more than just a book that one reads once and then leaves on the bookshelf to gather dust. The Bible speaks about God, but above all it is about God speaking to us – the Word of God to us. In the Holy Scriptures God is speaking personally to me, as though in a text message or, still more beautifully, in a love letter. Who would not want to receive a letter or a message directly from God?

In Need of Space!

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14). The Word came to us in our own time and space - and took on our humanity with all its weaknesses.
