New York City, N.Y., Jan 19, 2016 / 04:49 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A new United Nations report has tried to count the civilian toll of continuing conflict in Iraq, largely at the hands of Islamic State militants, and the numbers are "staggering."“Even the obscene casualty figures fail to accurately reflect exactly how terribly civilians are suffering in Iraq,” Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said Jan. 19.“The figures capture those who were killed or maimed by overt violence, but countless others have died from the lack of access to basic food, water or medical care.”He said the report showed the sufferings of Iraqi civilians and “starkly illustrates what Iraqi refugees are attempting to escape when they flee to Europe and other regions.”“This is the horror they face in their homelands.”Between January 2014 and October 2015, at least 18,802 civilians were killed in Iraq. About half of them...
Washington D.C., Jan 19, 2016 / 04:44 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on an immigration enforcement case will affect many immigrants in the U.S., and the Los Angeles archbishop says the court should rule on the side of humanity.“I cannot speak to the constitutional questions in this case. I speak as a pastor. And as a pastor, I know that the situation is unjust and intolerable for millions of people who are forced to live in the shadows of our great country,” Archbishop Jose Gomez said Jan. 19.“People do not cease to be our brothers and sisters because they have an irregular immigration status. No matter how they got here, no matter how frustrated we are with our government, we cannot lose sight of their humanity – without losing our own.”The Supreme Court will rule on the State of Texas’ challenge to President Obama’s immigration program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents. Und...
 WASHINGTON-Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York called on everyone "concerned about the tragedy of abortion" to recommit to a "vision of life and love, a vision that excludes no one" on January 14. His statement marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Cardinal Dolan chairs the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops."Most Americans oppose a policy allowing legal abortion for virtually any reason - though many still do not realize that this is what the Supreme Court gave us," wrote Cardinal Dolan. "Most want to protect unborn children at later stages of pregnancy, to regulate or limit the practice of abortion, and to stop the use of taxpayer dollars for the destruction of unborn children. Yet many who support important goals of the pro-life movement do not identify as 'pro-life,' a fact which should lead us to examine how we present our pro-life vision to others.""Even as Americans rema...

By Judith SudilovskyJERUSALEM (CNS) -- One week after a Christian cemeterywas desecrated outside of Jerusalem, two more Christian sites were vandalizedin the city.Several anti-Christian slogans in Hebrew were discovered scrawledalong the walls of the BenedictineDormition Abbey monastery and the neighboring Greek Orthodox seminary,both located on Mount Zion next to the walls of the Old City. The LatinPatriarchate of Jerusalem denounced the acts, which occurred Jan. 16 and17, and repeated its belief in the importance of education toward tolerance whileurging "follow-up" against those who incite intolerance against Christians."It is regrettable that such episodes of hatred come 50years after 'Nostra Aetate' which initiated the interreligious dialogue of theCatholic Church with other religions, and turned a new page between CatholicChurch and Judaism," the patriarchate said in a statement Jan. 17. "We hopethat the perpetrators will be arrested before proposed threats are carriedout."Fo...
