VATICAN CITY —  Pope Benedict XVI has expressed his concerns over the military campaign in Libya, a sentiment echoed by some Vatican officials who reportedly fear the conflict may turn into a protracted war with civilian casualties.

Speaking to pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square March 20 for the recitation of the Angelus, the Pope appealed “to those who have political and military responsibilities to concern themselves above all with the safety and well-being of the citizens, guaranteeing access to humanitarian aid.”

Allied forces, made up mainly of U.S., British and French military, began a series of strikes against Libya’s air defenses March 19 as part of a United...READ MORE

A Skyscraper Scandal (5504)

An archbishop takes on the powers that be and the government to save his cathedral.

Archdiocese of Bucharest

TOWERING HEADACHE. One of the tallest skyscrapers in Eastern Europe has been erected just 25 feet from a Catholic cathedral, which has objected to its construction since 2006. Despite stop work orders from Romanian courts, protests from the Vatican, the European Parliament, the Romanian Senate and thousands of the country's two million faithful, the tower is near completion. It is owned by American and Israeli investors.

BUCHAREST, Romania — Persecution comes in so many varieties.

In Bucharest, the capital of Romania, a tenacious archbishop has led a five-year struggle against a Goliath next door — a 19-story skyscraper, with four underground levels, being constructed about 25 feet from the Cathedral of St. Joseph.

The cathedral is the region’s Catholic spiritual center, besides being the seat of the archdiocese. When Pope John Paul II visited Romania in 1999, his first visit to a majority Orthodox country, he said Mass at St. Joseph’s.

Even winning stop-work orders from local courts and gaining support from the European Parliament, the Romanian Senate and the Vatican haven’t been enough: This ominous...READ MORE
