CWN Editor's Note: At a Mass celebrated at the basilica of Ste. Anne de Beaupré, outside Quebec, on July 28, Pope Francis spoke about how the faithful—and the Church—can overcome “the scandal of evil and the violence that led to Calvary.”

In his homily the Pope remarked that the basilica, originally built in 1658, has been rebuilt three times. He said: “Whenever our failures lead to an encounter with the Lord, life and hope are reborn and we are able to be reconciled: with ourselves, with our brothers and sisters, and with God.”
