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.


Catherine of Alexandria: According to the <i>Legend of St. Catherine</i>, this young woman converted to Christianity after receiving a vision. At the age of 18, she debated 50 pagan philosophers. Amazed at her wisdom and debating skills, they became Christians—as did about 200 soldiers and members of the emperor’s family. All of them were martyred. 
<p>Sentenced to be executed on a spiked wheel, Catherine touched the wheel and it shattered. She was beheaded. Centuries later, angels are said to have carried the body of St. Catherine to a monastery at the foot of Mt. Sinai. </p><p>Devotion to her spread as a result of the Crusades. She was invoked as the patroness of students, teachers, librarians and lawyers. Catherine is one of the 14 Holy Helpers, venerated especially in Germany and Hungary.</p> American Catholic Blog To live charitably means not looking out for our own interests, but carrying the burdens of the weakest and poorest among us. –Pope Francis
