Vatican publishes document on right to water access

By Junno Arocho Esteves/ Catholic News Agency
: Access to clean water is an essential human right that must be defended and protected, the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development said in a new document. Defending the right to clean water is part of the Catholic Church’s promotion of the common good, “not some particular national agenda,” the dicastery said, calling for “a management of water so as to ensure universal and sustainable access to it for the future of life, the planet and the human community.” The 46-page document, titled “Aqua Fons Vitae: Orientations on Water, Symbol of the Cry of the Poor and the Cry of the Earth,” was released by the Vatican March 30. The preface, signed by Cardinal Peter Turkson, dicastery prefect, and Msgr. Bruno Marie Duffe, secretary of the dicastery, stated that the current...

Patriarch Sako Easter Message: May the Lord protect Iraq and the world

Agenzia Fides
: In the days preceding Easter, Christians "are not able to celebrate these important liturgical events" as they used to do annually due to the current situation, but "they keep praying at their homes" making their hope as a real “Pass-Over” from darkness to light, from fragility to strength; from illness to health". This is what Chaldean Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako writes in a message released in view of Easter and also sent to Agenzia Fides. In this time, which also sees the Easter celebrations marked by the scourge of the pandemic crisis - says the Iraqi Cardinal - "Everyone must analyze their own behavior. Self-criticism should be everyone’s “duty”, since morals have been falling back, marked by corruption, greed, stealing public money, violence, threats, murders, displacement, divorce...

Palm Sunday 2020: Message of Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa

Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa
: Following is the Palm Sunday 2020 Message of Most Rev. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem dated April 5, 2020: Dear friends, Today we have not celebrated the solemn and beautiful entrance of Jesus to the city of Jerusalem like every year, with faithful from all the parishes of the diocese and with pilgrims from all over the world. We have not raised our palms and olive branches to cry out “Hosanna” to our King, Jesus the Christ. The streets that would have been full of people and songs, hymns and the sound of bagpipes on this day are empty and silent. What is the Lord saying to us? Why all this? What can we do in these dramatic moments for the life of the world and ours? The people of Jerusalem welcomed Jesus with enthusiasm...
