A Great Source of News

If you don't already know about the ZENIT news agency, have a look. You can subscribe to their service and receive the latest articles by e-mail, or you can read them online at that link. There is no charge, although they do solicit well-deserved donations.

Just for instance, tonight's newsfeed has an article about Russian pilgrims visiting John Paul II's tomb, and another about a joint Orthodox-Catholic comemoration of Sts. Cyril and Methodius in which Greece's ambassador to the Holy See alludes to "the memory of the roots of our religious, cultural and ethnic identity" and mentions John Paul II, "first son of the great Slav nation clothed in the highest dignity of Roman Pontiff," and "his apostolic letter 'Egregiae Virtutis,' which he dedicated to the brothers of Salonika."
