Archbishop: Oklahoma City remains 'beacon of hope' 20 years after bomb

By Catholic News Service

OKLAHOMA CITY (CNS) -- Oklahoma City and the surrounding community found comfort in God after the 1995 bombing of the Murrah federal building and that inspired a "generous spirit" among "many people who took time to care and to comfort one another," Archbishop Paul S. Coakley said April 19.

THIS WEEK IN ORIGINS

Editors: Contents of Origins CNS Documentary Service, Vol. 44, No. 46 (April 23, 2015):

-- Pope Francis officially proclaims the extraordinary 2015-2016 Holy Year of Mercy in the bull of indiction "Misericordiae Vultus" ("The Face of Mercy").

-- Past atrocities must be recognized -- not hidden or denied -- if true reconciliation and healing are to occur, says Pope Francis in a greeting to Armenians attending a Mass in Rome marking the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

-- The Armenian genocide should serve as a warning of the need to prevent current conflicts from degenerating into unjustifiable violence stirred up by ethnic and religious differences, Pope Francis says in a message presented to Armenian religious and political leaders at Mass in St. Peter's.

-- Bishop Oscar Cantu, chair of the U.S. bishops' Committee on International Justice and Peace, writes Congress in support of the framework agreement concerning Iran's nuclear program negotiated by the United States and five other countries.
