What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way to be made aware of a Web site's latest news or feature updates. A Web site publisher creates an RSS feed that lists article headlines, summaries and links back to the latest full-text articles on its site. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, every time a new entry or article is published to the Web site, a link to the entry or article is added to your reader.

How do I use RSS?
Some RSS readers are stand-alone software applications that must be downloaded. Others are offered by Web sites that you can log into (like Google Reader, Bloglines, My MSN or My Yahoo!). All of them allow you to find and subscribe to various RSS feeds. Each offers different options. There are many different RSS readers available. Google has a good directory listing of all kinds.

After you have subscribed to an RSS feed, headlines will begin to "flow" to your reader. When you see a headline that interests you, just click it to view the full article.

Terms of Use
RSS from St. Anthony Messenger Press is for non-for-profit, non-commercial use only. Commercial enterprises may contact us here for more information.


Elizabeth of Portugal: Elizabeth is usually depicted in royal garb with a dove or an olive branch. At her birth in 1271, her father, Pedro III, future king of Aragon, was reconciled with his father, James, the reigning monarch. This proved to be a portent of things to come. Under the healthful influences surrounding her early years, she quickly learned self-discipline and acquired a taste for spirituality. Thus fortunately prepared, she was able to meet the challenge when, at the age of 12, she was given in marriage to Denis, king of Portugal. She was able to establish for herself a pattern of life conducive to growth in God’s love, not merely through her exercises of piety, including daily Mass, but also through her exercise of charity, by which she was able to befriend and help pilgrims, strangers, the sick, the poor—in a word, all those whose need came to her notice. At the same time she remained devoted to her husband, whose infidelity to her was a scandal to the kingdom. 
<p>He, too, was the object of many of her peace endeavors. She long sought peace for him with God, and was finally rewarded when he gave up his life of sin. She repeatedly sought and effected peace between the king and their rebellious son, Alfonso, who thought that he was passed over to favor the king’s illegitimate children. She acted as peacemaker in the struggle between Ferdinand, king of Aragon, and his cousin James, who claimed the crown. And finally from Coimbra, where she had retired as a Franciscan tertiary to the monastery of the Poor Clares after the death of her husband, she set out and was able to bring about a lasting peace between her son Alfonso, now king of Portugal, and his son-in-law, the king of Castile.</p> American Catholic Blog In the name of the Father, use my mind to bring you honor, and of the Son, fill my heart to spread your word, and of the Holy Spirit, strengthen me to carry you out to all the world. Amen.
