(Vatican Radio) Vatican Radio has been speaking to several delegates from Africa at the 51st International Eucharist Congress (IEC) taking place in Cebu, Philippines.Father Justin Matepa is the National Pastoral Secretary for the Bishops Conference of Zambia. He said the culture of encounter being experienced in Cebu can serve as an example for his own country.“We have a variance of cultures, ‘intra’ but also in relation with those who have come in from other countries,” he said.“But I think the big challenge always is the ‘intra’ dialogue that has to be there” – continued Father Matepa –  “Among us are different languages – tribes, if you want to call them – and sometimes the alignment that comes with the political affiliations based on that is a big challenge.”He said the religious situation is also varied.Listen to the interview by Seàn-Patrick Lovett with Msgr. Maurus Kakuru Kantana...

(Vatican Radio) Let us pray to God that the weakness that leads us to sin will never lead to corruption. This was the theme of Pope Francis homily at daily Mass on Friday morning, a theme he has taken up many times. Beginning with the first reading, which tells the story of David and Bathsheba, the Pope distinguished between regular sinners and those who are corrupt. Unlike regular sinners, the corrupt do not feel the need for forgiveness.Listen to Christopher Wells' report:  One can sin often, and always return to God seeking forgiveness, never doubting that it will be obtained. It is especially when one becomes corrupt – when one no longer sees the need to be forgiven – that problems begin.The corrupt feel they don’t need GodThis is the attitude King David assumes when he becomes enamoured with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, an army officer fighting on the frontlines. The Pope outlined the story narrated in the Scripture. After David seduced Bathsheba, ...

We speak of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience. The word poverty itself could be positive,” he told Vatican Radio.However, he said there is a different kind of poverty – “misery” – which cannot be welcomed.“A material poverty that ends up in misery, in deprivation of the main essentials of life, and there are many people in the world of our days that are ...

 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...
