Cardinal Hummes: Stop the predators of the Amazonian rain forest

vaticannews.va
: In the preface to a new book published ahead of the October Pan-Amazonian Synod of Bishops, Brazilian Cardinal Cláudio Hummes reflects on “New models of development”, and on the dangers facing the whole of the Amazon region. The Pan-Amazonian Synod of Bishops opens in the Vatican on Sunday 6 October. In the preparatory document, an entire section is dedicated to the “ecological dimension” of Amazonia. “From an environmental point of view”, reads the document, “the Amazon…is a lung of the planet and one of the sites of greatest biodiversity in the world”. Colonial models of development Cardinal Cláudio Hummes develops that theme in his reflections, denouncing what he calls a development model “imposed by public authorities and the interests of private companies” and that “expresses itself...

First trip of a Pope to Iraq would be source of ‘great joy’

By Deborah Castellano Lubov/ zenit.org
: The first trip of a Pope to Iraq would be a historic first, and many expect Pope Francis to go next year, namely 2020. The Argentine Pontiff himself explicitly expressed in June 2019 his desire to visit the war-torn nation in 2020. Until this point, for safety concerns, such a visit had been considered not feasible. Iraqi Christians have emigrated in droves after massive persecution of Christians and religious minorities by the Islamic State (ISIS). While many would love to return to their homeland, and international organizations, such as the pontifical foundation, Aid to the Church in Need, make great efforts to rebuild the Nineveh Plain, many Iraqis lack trust that they can safely re-establish themselves there, and instead await welcome in neighboring lands, and in countries afar, such...

Patriarch Sabbah: Lord Jesus is the Word of God, a true God and true Man

By Patriarch Michel Sabbah
: Who is Jesus Christ? What do you say: Who is Jesus Christ to you? He is the Word of God. He is true God and true Man. He is ‘God with us’, the "Emmanuel", as stated in the scriptures (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23). God is with you, personally. To know Jesus Christ is not theoretical knowledge, it is life, it is your life with Him. St. Paul said: "I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.” (Galatians 2:20 If Jesus lives in you, you live His life. Like Him, you walk in this life striving with all people to give life to all; striving with all to redeem all; striving with all to resist all powers of evil. Knowing Jesus Christ means to have personal relations with Him. It means to meditate and imitate what he taught and did. It means to put before Him, before His love for you...
