"In thename of the law, these unlawful outside influences must be set aside and aproper voice given to those who'll be living with the chosen candidate,"said Cardinal Karl Lehmann of Mainz, who was president of the German bishops'conference from 1987 to 2008."Ifthere really is something against a candidate, then the nuncio or Rome musttalk about it with the cathedral chapter.

Vatican City, May 5, 2016 / 01:05 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis is set to receive on Friday the prestigious Charlemagne Prize for his efforts in the unification of Europe, drawing major leaders on the continent such as the King of Spain to the celebration.Founded in 1950, the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen is “the oldest and best-known prize awarded for work done in the service of European unification,” according to the organization’s website.The announcement of Pope Francis’ selection for the 2016 prize was initially made in December 2015.
