The paradox of Medjugorje
APPARITIONS

The paradox of Medjugorje

The go-ahead for pilgrimages to Medjugorje and the large presence of cardinals, archbishops and bishops at the youth festival in Medjugorje recently, doesn't mean Rome intends to recognise the Marian apparitions, instead tends towards their obscuration.

Bishop Paglia’s summer coup demolishes the Institute for Family

With a summer coup Monsignor Vincenzo Paglia has succeeded in getting the statutes approved of the Giovanni Paolo II Theological Institute for Marriage and Family Sciences which assign the control over what is taught and who teaches it, to himself. He now has the power to definitively distort the purpose of the institute desired by St. John Paul II, to purge unwanted teachers, and to reset teachings in line with Amoris Laetitia.


The Church needs the “combat rosary” not pink quotas
A REAL ASSAULT WEAPON

The solution to sexual abuse is not civil justice
CHURCH

The solution to sexual abuse is not civil justice

The growing pressure from the sexual abuse scandal appears to have led the Church to look to civil justice as a solution.

Wanted: A Church of believers, not a believable Church
AFTER THE SUMMIT

Wanted: A Church of believers, not a believable Church

On the issue of sexual abuse we often hear that the Church’s  credibility is at stake. But this expression is actually the most evident sign that a secularized way of thinking permeates the Church today. It denies that the Church is objectively credible because it is Christ’s will.

Appeal of hundreds: «Thank you father Gabriel, now let's ring the bells for Alfie»

Ecclesia 11_05_2018

A letter/appeal to be signed: "The presence of Don Gabriele near Alfie comforts us. We need priests who, aware of their paternity and vocation, do not abandon us before evil and in the hour of death. We ask to ring the church bells for the baby during his funeral, certain that there are still many priests capable of shouting to the world the scandal of love".

KAMPOWSKI

«Christian marriage is possible. Reasons why»

«There is a wrong way to conduct pastoral care in the Church, it is to try to solve problems. Instead pastoral care should have a positive proposal at its core, which is to help people live the beauty.» The person to invert the perspective is Stephan Kampowski, professor of Philosophical Anthropology.
