Regensburg, Germany, Jan 12, 2016 / 12:09 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The elder brother of retired Pope Benedict XVI said that he was unaware of any sexual abuse occurring at a choir boarding school he previously directed.“These things were never discussed,” Fr. Georg Ratzinger told German newspaper Passauer Neue Presse. “The problem of sexual abuse that has now come to light was never spoken of.”He also said that he was not aware of how serious physical abuse by one of the schoolmasters may have been, apologizing to victims.His comments came after a lawyer charged by the Diocese of Regensburg with investigating alleged physical and sexual abuse at its cathedral's children's choir said his inquiry had found that more than 200 children may have been abused from the 1950s to the 1990s.At a Jan. 8 press conference, Ulrich Weber said he had found 231 children who were allegedly physically or sexually abused by teachers or priests at the choir and its associated ...
(Vatican Radio) Austrian police say that neighbouring Germany has been sending an increasing number of migrants back to Austria since the beginning of the month. The developments are expected to also impact the Balkans from where thousands of migrants fleeing war and poverty try to reach the West. Listen to Stefan Bos' report Austrian police say that the daily number of migrants being turned back by Germany has risen from 60 in December to 200 since the start of the year. Many have no valid documents, while others did not want to apply for asylum in Germany but in other countries, notably in Scandinavia. Police say that most sent back to Austria are not Syrians, who usually get asylum. Instead, they are migrants mostly from Afghanistan as well as Morocco and Algeria. New Year's Eve attacks on women in the German city of Cologne, blamed on migrants, have put pressure on Chancellor Angela Merkel. Women described what they called 'terrible' as...
Supports Little Sisters of the Poor, Catholic dioceses, dozens of ministries now before CourtBrief focuses on harm to the common good if the freedom to serve is violatedWASHINGTON-The General Counsel of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) filed a brief amicus curiae, January 8, in the Zubik v. Burwell case now before the U.S. Supreme Court on the question of the contraceptive mandate of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The brief argues that the government mandate that faith-based organizations facilitate payments for contraceptives and sterilization for their employees damages not only religious freedom, but society as a whole."If the petitioners abide by their religious beliefs, they face the loss of the ability to sponsor health coverage for their employees and millions of dollars in fines, threatening financial ruin. No one benefits from such an outcome-not the organizations, their donors, their clients, or their employees," wrote Anthony R. Picarell...

Vatican City, Jan 12, 2016 / 03:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In his new book on God's mercy, Pope Francis explains that his oft-quoted words “who am I to judge”, about a homosexual person who is searching for the Lord with a good will, is simply his reflection on Church teaching found in the catechism.The Name of God is Mercy, to be released Jan. 12, is a book-length interview of Pope Francis by Italian journalist Andrea Tornielli. The book is meant to “reveal the heart of Francis and his vision,” according to Tornielli's foreward. He had wanted to ask the Pope about mercy and forgiveness, “to analyze what those words mean to him, as a man and a priest.”The journalist asked Pope Francis about his experience as a confessor to homosexual persons and about his “who am I to judge” comment, made during his in-flight press conference from Rio de Janeiro to Rome July 28, 2013.“On that occasion I said this:  If a person is gay an...
Washington D.C., Jan 12, 2016 / 02:22 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Surrogate pregnancy is back in the news with two high profile cases where two different surrogate mothers of triplets rejected requests to have abortions. And one organization is responding by saying the practice is so unethical it should be banned.“The problems with surrogacy aren’t limited just to here in the U.S. – they’re universal,” said Christopher White, director of research and education at the California-based Center for Bioethics and Culture.White’s organization advocates for a complete ban on surrogacy. He said surrogacy “commodifies human life” and exploits women, especially those from a low socio-economic status. “It’s indistinguishable from the buying and selling of life,” he told CNA Jan. 8. “Many of the children conceived through surrogacy can’t help but to feel as if they are mere products and that they were brought into exist...
