20 September 1870: 150 years since the breach of Porta Pia – by Giovanni Turco

The events that condense in the defense and conquest of the last provinces of the Papal States in September 1870 find in the Contemporary Chronicle of "La Civiltà Cattolica" a careful and timely testimony. There are detailed reports, the result of an information framework mainly drawn on the ground, as well as a selective analysis of the periodic press. These, being no less than the challenging articles of the Magazine's reputation, presuppose a screening and weighting that make its documentary contribution increasingly relevant.

The Pope who pleaded for the reparation of sins

The Encyclicals of Pope Pius XI (1857–1939) are wonderful. They have direct, clear language, they are very clear and have the great privilege of being short. In a few pages they say everything. Today the Papal Encyclicals are complicated, long, verbose, probably hardly anyone reads them. And it cannot be said that the Encyclicals of the Popes of the past are outdated, because they are ordinary Magisterium of the Church, therefore they have a perennial value.
