From 'miracle' to lawsuit: AstraZeneca vaccine quits market

AstraZeneca's decision to withdraw the Covid vaccine should give pause for thought: it was hailed as a miracle. Instead it was an experimental drug, with efficacy and safety yet to be verified. As time would tell.

HERMENEUTICS OF CONTRADICTION

Pope offers fluid response to rainbow nun

Sister Jeannine Gramick writes to the Pontiff: her LGBT friends are upset by certain statements in Dignitas infinita. Francis reassures her: the criticism only refers to gender ideology because it "annuls differences", but the practice - homosexual and transsexual - generated the theory and is glossed over.

Pope's titles, the great misunderstanding about the primacy of Peter

Who will be the rainbow cardinals at next papal conclave

Even in the so-called peripheries, not everyone thinks like Congolese Cardinal Ambongo, symbol of the African rebellion against Fiducia supplicans. Among the electors of the future Pope, there will be a quota that is particularly sensitive to LGBT groups.

Crepaldi: Europeanism is an ideology to combat

Green Deal, private property under attack, abortion considered one of the fundamental principles, interference in the internal affairs of member states.

Climate, Pope's insults inadmissible

In an interview with the American TV station CBS, Pope Francis calls scientists and experts who deny the climate emergency "stupid". A heavy and unacceptable criticism, which also reveals a major problem in the relationship between the Church and science.

Vatican set to renew controversial agreement despite China’s betrayal

For Cardinal Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, the secret agreement with China must be renewed. And this time it should be definitive.

Storms in the Gulf, but don’t blame mankind for natural disasters
