(Vatican Radio)  Poland has summoned Germany's ambassador in the country after several German politicians criticized the recently elected Polish government over its perceived crackdown on media freedom and the judiciary, amid anti-government protests. Listen to Stefan Bos' report: Germany's ambassador to Poland was summoned to the Polish foreign ministry at a time of growing tensions between the two neighbors.

It became the first party to be able to govern alone since democracy was restored to Poland in 1989 following decades of Communist-rule. Under its leadership a new media law was adopte...

Vatican City, Jan 11, 2016 / 07:05 am (CNA/EWTN News).- On Monday Pope Francis gave his first major speech of the year to the diplomatic corps accredited to the Holy See, focusing on the hot-button topic of migration and the need to find dignified solutions to the problem.While the increasing number of migrants certainly poses a challenge, Francis said that the basic human dignity of those seeking a better life shouldn’t be overshadowed by the problems that come with them.“Over the past year Europe has witnessed a great wave of refugees – many of whom died in the attempt – a wave unprecedented in recent history, not even after the end of the Second World War,” the Pope told diplomats Jan. 11.Migrants coming from Asia and Africa see Europe as “a beacon” for principles such as equality before the law as well as for values “inherent in human nature,” like the recognition dignity and equality of each person, respect for others regard...
