+  Elementary Pastoral Sense Absent From Amazonian Statue Controversy

  • Description: The disputed Amazonian statue might be dismissed as a small distraction, but it is an important thing made more significant by a lack of elementary pastoral sense. As Catholics ought to know better than anyone else — all the more so Vatican officials — symbols convey much more than words. That’s why the liturgy is a ritual employing symbols rather than an essay employing syllogisms. We talk with Fr Raymond de Souza

+  Vatican Bank Lands in Regulatory Hot Seat

  • Description: The head of the Vatican Bank appeared to admit this week to a transaction that could be a violation of European regulatory commitments. In a statement Tuesday, Bishop Nunzio Galantino, head of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See, acknowledged that the Vatican bank loaned 50 million euros to finance the purchase of an Italian hospital, even though the Administration is prohibited from making loans that finance commercial transactions.
