The Nigerian cardinal, who served as president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue from 1985-2002 and as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments from 2002 until his retirement in 2008, discussed the Council's highlights, the problems that followed it and his hopes for the Year of Faith.

ROME — An American priest and scholar who was awarded the annual Ratzinger Prize for Theology by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct. 20 was both thrilled and surprised to receive the honor.

“It was a total surprise for me, but I'm really touched that they would think of me for this and that it would bear the name of our present Holy Father, whom I have always admired a lot,” said Jesuit Father Brian Daley, a professor of patristic theology at the University of Notre Dame.

The 72-year-old shared the honor with French Catholic lay philosopher Remi Brague.

Vatican Deplores Beirut Car Bomb Attack (1508)

Pope Benedict XVI has called for Lebanon to be a witness to 'peace and hope' for its residents and throughout the region.

10/22/2012 Comment

– Catholic News Agency

VATICAN CITY —  The Vatican’s spokesman is condemning the car bomb attack in Beirut, Lebanon, which killed a leading Lebanese security official and seven other people while wounding dozens.

“The attack in Beirut deserves the firmest condemnation, for the senseless murderous violence which manifested itself and because it runs counter to the efforts and commitment to preserve a peaceful coexistence in Lebanon,” Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican’s press office, said Oct. 19.

He cited Pope Benedict XVI’s call for Lebanon to be a witness to “peace and hope” for its residents and throughout the region.

He said the Holy See shares in the grief over the deaths and injuries...READ MORE

Pope Benedict XVI presided over the Church’s canonization of the first American Indian, Kateri Tekakwitha, at St. Peter’s Square yesterday.

In advance of the Oct. 21 canonization, Father W. Carroll Paysse, executive director of the Black and Indian Mission Office of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, spoke to Rome correspondent Edward Pentin Oct. 17 about the significance of the life of St. Kateri and what her canonization means for the Church in the...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — An estimated 80,000 pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square to witness and celebrate the canonizations of seven new saints on Oct. 21, including the first American Indian, St. Kateri Tekakwitha.

Also canonized was a second American, St. Marianne Cope.

Under a clear blue sky and warm, sunny weather in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI praised each saint for their exceptional lives, stressing that the words of Mark — “the Son of Man came to serve and give his life for many” — were “the blueprint for living” for each of the newly canonized.

“May the witness of these new saints, and their lives generously spent for love of Christ, speak today to the whole Church, and may their...READ MORE

LONDON — Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the leading cleric in the Worldwide Anglican Communion, is trying to persuade members of the Church of England’s upcoming General Synod to support the ordination of women as Anglican bishops.

In an article published in the Anglican newspaper The Church Times, Archbishop Williams said the church legislation “will shape the future of the Church of England for generations.” He contended that a vote against the proposal “risks committing us to a period of continued and perhaps intensified internal conflict with no clearly guaranteed outcome.”

The archbishop is trying to push through the measure at the General Synod in November. The synod...READ MORE
