Father Pizzaballa Says All Religious Communities "Must Denounce" What's Happening in Iraq and Syria
By Deborah Castellano Lubov
 
RIMINI - As violence in the Middle East escalates daily, the Custos of the Holy Land has said that rather than further discuss the problems, it's important to look at what must be done, how people can co-exist, and raise voices against the violence.

How do you pray for Gaza?
 
I usually rouse from sleep, in my rumpled sheets, with John Humphries or Evan Davies.
 
Exactly what I promised as a child to my parents, would never, EVER happen: I wake up with the radio alarm, tuned not to cheery Radio 1, but to sombre Radio 4. And whatever story breaks my slumber tends to stay with me during the day, and often into the week.

An Army for Making Peace; The Geopolitics of Francis PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 22 August 2014 04:37

ROME - He puts prayer in first place. But he doesn't dismiss the arts of diplomacy. And now he is not hesitating to call upon armies.
 
The geopolitics of Pope Francis operates on these three levels, of which the third is the most surprising. The complete opposite of the absolute pacifism that seemed to characterize the beginning of his pontificate.
 
In effect, last year the day of prayer and fasting against a military intervention by the West in Syria, with a rosary recited in St. Peter's Square, was the act with which Francis seemed to proclaim to the world how he, the pope, intended for move from that moment on in theaters of war. With empty hands, disarmed, lifted to heaven.
