Cardinal Parolin UN Address: a Call for a “Just War”? PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 06 October 2014 06:21

altANALYSIS – In his address to the Security Council of the United Nations in New York, during the 69th General Assembly of the Organization, Cardinal Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, spoke of “proportionate use of force” as a means – among others – “to stop the aggression” of the Islamic State. Is that a call from the Vatican for a “Just War”?

It is always important to put things in their often larger context. Prior to speaking about the “proportional use of force”, Cardinal Parolin, in his speech, gave a long exposition on “new forms of terrorism,” its “transnational” nature, its roots, its dangers, more and more understood by the international legal system.

altReflection – The answer seems obvious, yet the term “Holy Land” alone calls to mind millennia of history: the stories of different people and different countries.  From a geographical, biblical and spiritual perspective without dismissing political or apolitical considerations, the question “What is the Holy Land” is placed in a context of perhaps not having an answer but an invitation to reflection.

altThe head of the Vatican’s Council for Christian Unity says he regrets that Catholics and Orthodox leaders are unable to give a stronger sign of unity for Christians suffering persecution in the Middle East.

Cardinal Kurt Koch has just returned from a meeting in Amman where he served as co-president of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Orthodox and Catholic Churches. A communique released on Wednesday reflects the difficulties the two sides encountered in the search for agreement on the theme ‘Synodality and Primacy’ which has been at the heart of the discussions since a 2007 plenary meeting in Ravenna, Italy.
