    Saint Corona – Patron Saint of EpidemicsShe had become nearly forgotten. Little is known about the young woman who was killed for her Christian faith, presumably in the second century A.D. But now, a pandemic is shedding light on her: St Corona. The German Catholic news agency KNA reports the Church’s martyr records put the year of her death at 177 A.D. It is not certain where she lived. A Greek account put it in Syria, while a Latin one said it was Marseilles, France, and Sicily. What is proven is that she began to be honoured starting in...

    You can save the sentimental claptrap on turning 100 for some other centenarian. Hedi McKinley, who hits triple digits on Wednesday, is not interested in any sort of triteness. She is a Holocaust survivor and a woman who has looked evil in the eye and never blinked. “I didn’t expect to make it to 100, but here I am,” she said. “I don’t know why anybody wants to live this long. The world isn’t such a wonderful place, but I don’t know what the alternative is.” She spoke by phone Saturday from her apartment in Beverwyck, an independent senior community...

    LISBON - Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Friday that the Netherlands’ attempt to block economic support to fight the coronavirus raised questions about the future of the European Union. “If under these conditions it’s not possible for Europe to ensure a common response to this challenge, this is a sign of great concern for those who believe in Europe,” Costa said in an interview with local news agency Lusa. Costa questioned whether “there is anyone who wants to be left out” of the EU or the 19-member euro zone. “Naturally, I’m referring to the Netherlands,” he said. “There...

    We are seeing glimmers of light at the end of the tunnel that is the Covid-19 crisis. China, where the pandemic first struck, had its first day with no new deaths to report. Europe’s worst hit countries, Italy and Spain, are recording a slowing of their respective death tolls. And governments are now talking openly about lifting draconian lockdowns that have restricted movement for half of the world’s population, torpedoed economic activity and imposed a global recession. This is a big moment. The tunnel is a long one, though. The coronavirus outbreak hasn’t spread uniformly, and, in Europe, country-by-country lockdowns...

    Austria’s Europe minister has said that the EU’s compulsory migrant redistribution scheme “has failed” and member-states should be able to choose whether to accept migrants or not.

    The EU’s post-Brexit budget meeting erupted into rows with poorer countries demanding more aid while their “frugal” peers were determined to rein in spending. Brexit left the EU short of around £62 billion when Britain left the bloc last month. On Friday — after nearly 30 hours of discussions — the 27 remaining EU countries failed to agree on the overall size of the bloc’s 2021 to 2027 budget or how to spend it. Speaking after the talks in the EU’s Brussels hub, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: “We have to acknowledge that the differences are too big still to...

Apparently, he has set 17 fires, and the pyromaniac has now been barred from access to any firefighting equipment. ...
