LIMA, Peru (EWTN News) — The prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, is encouraging young people to see Benedict XVI as the “Pope of hope.”

He added that by administering the sacrament of reconciliation to young people at Madrid’s Central Park on Aug. 20, Pope Benedict XVI wants to emphasize that the sacrament is “essential and that renewal can only come if we let God renew us.”

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — A comic book entitled Habemus Papam!, chronicling the life of Pope Benedict XVI, will be distributed during the World Youth Day gathering in Madrid, Spain, Aug. 16-21.

Manga Hero, based in San Rafael, Calif., is behind the content. Jonathan Lin created the exclusively, and unapologetically, Catholic comic book-publishing company in 2010. He uses an Asian twist on the more traditional superhero comic books with which Americans are familiar.

His decision to get involved with World Youth Day 2011 is an example of divine Providence at work.

Kansas City, Kan. (EWTN News/CNA) — At a Kansas City conference on end-of-life care, Cardinal Raymond Burke said that suffering does not cause a person to have less meaning in his life, nor does it give the government the right to decide if that person should live or die.

“No matter how much a life is diminished, no matter what suffering the person is undergoing, that life demands the greatest respect and care,” Cardinal Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s highest court, told EWTN News.

“It’s never right to snuff out a life because it’s in some way under heavy burden.”

Cardinal Burke spoke July 23 to a packed auditorium of more than 350 people at the Archdiocese of...READ MORE

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (EWTN News/CNA) — Pope Benedict XVI issued a “heartfelt” plea to all on July 24, following the terrorist attacks in Norway. He called on everyone to “abandon forever the path of hatred and escape from the logic of evil,” as he offered his prayers for the victims and their families.

The Pope said that the news of the bombing in downtown Oslo and the subsequent shooting at a youth camp caused him deep sorrow and left him grief-stricken.

The July 22 attacks began when Anders Behring Breivik — by his own admission — detonated a car bomb at the government headquarters in downtown Oslo. That attack took the lives of seven people and injured many more.
