NEW YORK — Ten years after 9/11, plans have been settled to rebuild the only church that was destroyed during the attacks on the World Trade Center.

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America has spent the last decade in a tug-of-war with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the land under the World Trade Center, over the future of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. The small church sat in the shadows of the Twin Towers but was crushed when they collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.

On Oct. 14, both parties announced that they had finally reached an agreement.

According to Father Mark Arey, director of the Office of Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations, St....READ MORE

10/26/2011 Comments (24)

Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi explained that the document on economics was not 'an expression of papal magisterium.'

VATICAN CITY — A new Vatican document that calls for the creation of a new global authority to regulate financial markets and a tax on financial transactions has been praised by some for reminding world leaders to uphold the dignity of the poor.

But it has also been roundly criticized by others for being out of touch with political and economic reality.

The 41-page document, drawn up by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and published Oct. 24, was aimed at contributing to the upcoming G-20 Summit Nov. 3-4, which will be devoted to the ongoing global economic crisis.

Titled “Toward Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — A Christian must never yield to the temptation “to become a wolf among wolves,” but should work instead to build a kingdom of peace in which Christ is King, Pope Benedict XVI said today, Oct. 26, at a special Liturgy of the Word on the eve of tomorrow’s special day of prayer for peace in Assisi, Italy.

Addressing pilgrims this morning in the Paul VI hall, the Pope said, “It is not the sword of the conqueror that builds peace, but the sword of those who suffer and give up their own lives.” He reminded the faithful that they must journey like Christ: “not with the might of war or the force of power ... but with the giving of self, with love carried to its extreme...READ MORE

Archbishop Naumann on the Indictment of Bishop Finn (7576)

Neighboring bishop, a close collaborator, has questions about the prosecution of the case and its treatment by the media.

10/26/2011 Comments (23)

On Oct. 14, Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Mo., was indicted for failure to report suspected child abuse, a charge linked to the arrest in May 2011 of Father Shawn Ratigan, a diocesan priest, for possession of child pornography. The New York Times noted that it was the “first time in the 25-year history of the Church’s sex-abuse scandals that the leader of an American diocese has been held criminally liable for the behavior of a priest he supervised.”

Bishop Finn and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph have each been charged with one misdemeanor count for failure to report the priest to the authorities. The local prosecutor as well as the Times and The Kansas City Star...READ MORE

Updated Oct. 27 and Oct. 29.

WASHINGTON (EWTN News/CNA)—Abortion was a key issue for Republican presidential candidates at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual dinner on Oct. 22.

The dinner, which took place at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, featured speeches by six major GOP candidates.

“It is a liberal canard to say, ‘I am personally pro-life, but government should stay out of that decision,’” said Texas Gov. Rick Perry. “That is not pro-life. That is pro-having-your-cake-and-eating-it-too.”

“Being pro-life is not a matter of campaign convenience. It is a core conviction,” he added.

NEW YORK — A Vatican conference next month could help influence public figures to get behind adult stem-cell research, much in the way Michael J. Fox is lobbying for embryonic stem-cell research.

That’s the hope of Dr. Robin Smith, CEO of NeoStem, an international biopharmaceutical firm based in New York.

The Nov. 9-11 conference, “Adult Stem Cells: Science and the Future of Man and Culture,” will bring Church leaders, policymakers, government health ministers and ambassadors to the Holy See together with scientists, stem-cell companies and patients who have participated in adult stem-cell trials.

The gathering will feature Tommy Thompson, former U.S. secretary of Health and Human...READ MORE
