Vatican City, Jun 10, 2016 / 05:36 am (CNA/EWTN News).- After putting a freeze on their contract with external auditor PricewaterhouseCoopers in April, the Vatican has announced a new agreement with the company, who will now serve as an aide to the Holy See’s own internal auditing entity.A June 10 statement from the Vatican said that the Holy See and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) “have entered into a new agreement” which allows for “a broader collaboration with PwC that is adaptable to the Holy See’s needs.”PwC, the statement read, “will play an assisting role and will also be available to those (departments) that wish to avail themselves of its support and consulting services.”The statement also recognized that by law, the task of performing the Vatican’s financial audits belongs “to the Office of the Auditor General (URG), as is normally the case for every sovereign state.”The Auditor General is a new office establis...
Chicago, Ill., Jun 10, 2016 / 03:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Dawn Eden Goldstein isn’t trying to be a priest.She even argued in a New York Times debate that women should not become ordained deacons.But that didn’t stop her from becoming the first woman ever to earn her doctorate in sacred theology alongside an all-male, all-seminarian class at Mundelein seminary in Illinois.Even though Goldstein technically graduated from the University of St. Mary of the Lake, she was in the same classes and ate at the same dining hall and frequented the same libraries as the 220 men at Mundelein studying to be priests.Her new degree, the highest pontifical degree one can receive from the Catholic Church, qualifies her to teach on faculty at either a seminary or university, at a time when the Holy See is seeking to encourage a greater presence of lay women professors in seminaries.“The Holy See for some time has been saying that women need to be involved in seminary formation,” ...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis told leaders of the Reformed Churches on Friday that there is an urgent need for an ecumenism capable of promoting “a shared mission of evangelization and service”. Unless people find in the Church a spirituality offering healing and liberation, he said, they will end up being taken in by solutions which “neither make life truly human, nor give glory to God”.Philippa Hitchen reports:  In his meeting with the delegation from the World Communion of Reformed Churches, the Pope said we must be grateful to God for our rediscovered brotherhood. Quoting from his predecessor, Saint John Paul II, he said this is not the consequence of a big-hearted philanthropy or “a vague family spirit”, but rather it is rooted in recognition of “the oneness of Baptism” which compels us to strive to “grow together in order to better serve the Lord”.Speaking in Spanish, Pope Francis noted especially the recent con...
(Vatican Radio)  It was announced on Friday Pope Francis has decided to raise the celebration of the memorial of St. Mary Magdalene to the dignity of a liturgical Feast.In the modern Church calendar, saints may be commemorated with a memorial (optional or obligatory), feast, or solemnity.The decree was signed on 3 June 2016, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart.  In a letter announcing the change, the Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Arthur Roche, writes the decision means one “should reflect more deeply on the dignity of women, the New Evangelization, and the greatness of the mystery of Divine Mercy.”Archbishop Roche drew attention to the fact Mary Magdalene was the first witness to the Resurrection, and is the one who announced the event to the Apostles.“Saint Mary Magdalene is an example of true and authentic evangelization; she is an evangelist who announces the joyful central message of Easter,&rdq...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the chapel of the Casa Santa Marta on Friday morning. In remarks to the faithful following the Readings of the Day, the Holy Father focused on three attitudes that are characteristic of the Christian: “standing” before God in “silence” to hear His voice and readiness to “go out” into the world to proclaim what one has heard to others. The Pope also warned against the danger of paralyzing fear in Christian life, no matter where one is in one’s journey with God and regardless of one’s state of life in the Church:Standing upright and walkingTo explore this issue, and how to escape the tunnel of fear, the Pope focused on the the prophet Elijah, from whose book the First Reading of the Day was taken. The Holy Father recalled how Elijah was victorious, how he “fought so much for the faith,” and defeated hundreds of idolaters on Mount Carmel. Then, he reaches a breaking point:...
