(Vatican Radio) The Holy See’s Permanent Observer to the United Nations in New York, Archbishop Bernardito Auza, on Thursday “firmly” rejected the use of illegal drugs and the legalization of the use of narcotics.The Vatican diplomat, quoting Pope Francis, said “a reduction in the spread and influence of drug addiction will not be achieved by a liberalization of drug use… [and] attempts, however limited, to legalize so-called recreational drugs are not only highly questionable from a legislative standpoint but they fail to produce the desired effect.”Archbishop Auza was addressing a UN General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem.“The negative effect of illicit drug use on the family extends to the community, and leads ultimately to the destabilization of civil society,” he said.“People suffering from drug abuse require all the support we can give them, including comprehensive health and social services that are ...

Muchof the attention had been on how dioceses and national bishops' conferenceshave been responding to victims and protecting children. But,religious orders and congregations are sometimes left out of that picture, eventhough they, too, have a duty to make sure every person in their care is safe.Also, the majority of the more than 300,000 Catholic schools and orphanagesaround the world are run by religious brothers and sisters whose charisms areto promote human dignity and Gospel values.PopeFrancis last year authorized the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith toinvestigate and judge claims of "abuse of office" by bishops whoallegedly failed to protect minors and vulnerable adults from sex abuse. Butthat form of censure "wasn't extended to superior generals, and it shouldbe," said Father John Fogart...
London, England, Apr 22, 2016 / 06:01 am (CNA/EWTN News).- As the British government considers measures to name the Islamic State’s persecution of Christians and other religious minorities as genocide, Bishop Mark Davies of Shrewsbury has urged the British Parliament to “stand with other governments and international bodies.”“We are witnessing nothing short of genocide being committed with horrifying cruelty against Christians and other minorities in the Middle East,” Bishop Davies said in an April 21 statement. “Whole communities face annihilation and look to the international community for support.”His comments follow a unanimous vote in the British House of Commons April 20 in favor of referring to the violence committed by Islamic State – also known as Daesh, or ISIS – against Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq and Syria as “genocide.”The House of Lords had failed only days earl...
A year after the deadly earthquake in Nepal, thousands of people, especially women, are being deprived of funds to rebuild because they do not own land or cannot prove they owned the land where they lived, an international anti-poverty organization said on Friday.  Nepal's government requires proof of ownership, but many victims have lost documents and others did not formally own the land where they lived, said Oxfam.  The government this month began distributing grants of 200,000 Nepali rupees ($1,900) to families that can prove they owned land before the earthquake, which struck on April 25, 2015.  The quake killed some 9,000 people, injured more than 22,000 others and damaged or destroyed more than 900,000 houses.  "Families who are landless and who were living on unregistered land are very much uncertain about the future and support that the government had promised," said Prabin Man Singh, research and policy coordinator for Oxfam, who co-auth...
