VATICAN CITY — The Holy See is giving a cautious but positive assessment of the outcome of the latest bilateral talks with Israel after the leading Israeli representative in the negotiations said an agreement was very close.

In comments to The Jerusalem Post, outgoing deputy foreign minister Daniel Ayalon is reported to have said the Holy See and Israel were “on the verge of signing” the agreement that would fully formalize diplomatic relations, after a bilateral working commission held its plenary meeting in Jerusalem Jan. 29. He added that any final agreement was “subject to final approval by the government of Israel and the Holy See.”

MADRID — Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, urged Catholics in Spain to embrace Church teaching as the foundation for a better society.

“We cannot lose the courage to proclaim the Gospel today,” said Archbishop Müller in an interview with COPE Radio on Jan. 28.

He explained that the Catholic Church has a “much better” understanding of human needs than the secular ideologies that are embraced by many politicians.

The archbishop underscored that the “secularist” mentality cannot provide an adequate response to man’s sufferings, to his existential problems or to what lies beyond death.

Nor can such a mentality...READ MORE

Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life

WASHINGTON — Amid changing abortion rhetoric and significant legislative advances, a group of legal experts in the nation’s capital said that they are confident in the future of the pro-life movement.

“In this epic struggle,” said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, “my money’s on the baby.”

Hosting a Jan. 24 symposium in Washington, Yoest and other speakers discussed changes in rhetoric surrounding the abortion debate, as well as growing legislative efforts in the 40 years since the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions established a national “right” to abortion at any time, for any reason, during a woman’s pregnancy.

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — At a time when many Catholic schools face serious financial challenges, one Catholic high school in the northern suburbs of New York City is expanding its educational capacity in a surprising way: Iona Preparatory School recently acquired a nearby elementary school, thanks to a first-of-its-kind financial-planning program for Catholic institutions made available through the National Catholic Educational Association and the state of Colorado.

Iona Prep is an academically rigorous, all-boys high school in New Rochelle, N.Y., founded by the Congregation of Christian Brothers. The school serves 775 young men on a 26-acre campus.

WASHINGTON — Surgical and medical abortions are associated with a host of untold and under-reported medical and psychological risks, said a panel of doctors at a recent conference in the nation’s capital.

“Abortion reporting has been a major impediment in receiving accurate information about abortion complications,” said Dr. Monique Chireau, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Duke University School of Medicine.

She added that “improved abortion reporting, informed consent and public information regarding abortion complications should help reduce abortion rates.”

Chireau was part of a medical panel that spoke at the Americans United for Life Symposium on Jan. 24 in...READ MORE

MADRID — A replica image of Our Lady of Czestochowa is currently traveling throughout Spain on a pro-life and pro-family pilgrimage that will span 24 countries and more than 18,000 miles.

Dubbed “From Ocean to Ocean,” the tour began last September in Vladivostok on Russia’s Pacific coast and will conclude at the Shrine of Fatima on the Atlantic coast of Portugal.

Organizers of the tour hope that “the number of people who discover and defend the dignity of the human being from conception to natural death will continuously increase.”

The famous image of Mary, normally housed at the Jasna Gora Shrine in Poland, has been in Spain since Dec. 15, visiting more than 25 dioceses.
