They complained that in recent years "contradictions, double and confusing language, ambiguity, and loopholes in clear doctrine have been coming from the chair of Peter." These Poor Clares also claimed that "H.H. Pius XII was the last valid supreme pontiff," thus leaving the papal office vacant since then.According to an analysis Silva made of the Catholic Manifesto the nuns made public a ...

Clergy and laypeople alike bore the brunt of the violence, with bombings targeting churches as well.The situation reached a peak when security forces crumbled, failing to protect Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city and the heart of Nineveh province.

Today, they grapple with rebuilding their lives while demanding accountability and a future built on equity and justice.In the wake of clashes and bombings between security forces and ISIS, Mosul's residents were l...

Top European human rights court rules countries can't be forced to introduce assisted suicide

null / Credit: HQuality/ShutterstockAnn Arbor, Michigan, Jun 14, 2024 / 15:30 pm (CNA).The European Court of Human Rights on June 13 ruled in favor of Hungary's right to uphold its laws prohibiting assisted suicide, thus affirming the laws of 46 countries of the Council of Europe that protect human life.The Council of Europe is the broadest coalition in Europe and is larger than the 26-member European Union. The United Kingdom is a member of the European Council, for example, but is not a member of the European Union.ADF International, a global alliance of law firms defending human life, intervened in the case Karsai v. Hungary, arguing that Hungary's prohibition of assisted suicide should be upheld because Hungary is a signatory of the European Convention on Human Rights, which upholds the right to life. ADF argued that while states have an obligation to protect the right to life, there is no right to die.Jean-Paul Van De Walle, an attorney for ADF, said: "Instead of abandonin...

Thought of the Day

1 Kings 19: 11-12

(The Lord appears to Ellijah) But the word of the LORD came to him, "Go outside and stand on the mountain before the LORD; the LORD will be passing by." A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountains and crushing rocks before the LORD— but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake— but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was fire— but the LORD was not in the fire. After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.
