    Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

    This is Holy Week for the Catholic Church. It's the time when the faithful mark the last days of Jesus' life on Earth and his resurrection from the dead. Today Pope Francis marked Holy Thursday with a mass at the Vatican. But then, he broke with tradition, by presiding over a service at a juvenile detention center on the outskirts of Rome. EWTN News Director and CNN Contributor Raymond Arroyo explains the significance of the visit:

    "He wants priests, he's trying to show them by example, you need to go and touch the people who are hurting, who are suffering, who are in the thrall of evil and try to break that pattern. And you can't do it from afar. You can't do it through a proxy. You have to go do it yourself, which is the way Christ did it."

    It's been three months since Adam Lanza walked into Newtown Elementary School and shot 20 children and six adults to death. Today information contained in search warrants was released by Connecticut law enforcement officials. The pages paint a picture of a young man who didn't interact much with the outside world, who had a fascination with weapons, and was fixated on other mass shootings.Villanova University Psychology Professor Patrick Markey says the one thing we didn’t learn from the release of the documents is - why?:

    "We’ll never know. I mean that’s… there are as many different opinions as there are experts on this and it’s unclear which one is correct if anybody. The sad truth is we won’t know."

    Ethnic violence in Myanmar, also known as Burma, has sparked fears of a political and humanitarian crisis. Last week Buddhist monks took to the streets of a central city wielding swords and machetes. They clashed with Muslims and in the melee dozens of people were killed. Phil Roberson with Human Rights Watch says the country is about 90 percent Buddhist, and Muslims often face violent discrimination:

    "There are groups... putting out anti-Muslim tracks, accusing the Muslims of trying to take over Burma. So there are some dark hands involved in instigating hatred against the Muslim minority in Burma."
