Women, milestone of the Church in Africa

Church of Africa about women

EDITORIAL TEAM
African women
O
ne thing that cannot be ignored, when we speak of the African Church, is that, if the Holy Spirit is the invisible force of the Church of Africa, women, without a doubt, are the tangible force. Women are more numerous, have more courage, are more dynamic, more active and sometimes more competent. Without women, our churches in Africa would almost be empty, both as a presence and as a force": this is what Fr. Donald Zagore, of the Society of African Missions, said in a conversation with...

Without morals there is no politics

MONS. MICHELE PENNISI
Without morals there is no politics
The Servant of God Don Luigi Sturzo, who had a profound moral conception of political life, in August 1957 sent to the House of the nations for the Moral Rearmament, which was held in the USA in the presence of representatives of forty-nine countries, a message in which he stated: "May the Moral International Rearmament be the triumph of Love, that love which Jesus proclaimed as fire brought from heaven, that must light on all the hearts of men". Don Luigi Sturzo, from the beginning of his...

SPELLS AND EVIL EYE: WHAT WE NEEED TO KNOW

SPELLS AND EVIL EYE: WHAT WE NEEED TO KNOW
Many times people have asked me: "Do spells exist? And the evil eye?". The answer to these questions is yes, but it is necessary to explain several things. First of all, spell, evil eye, witchcraft, black magic, designate an evil action against someone. The Protagonists The actors are four: the one who makes the spell, the one who receives it, the one who materially procure the damage, the devil. The fourth actor is God, that allows it, to the extent that He wants to, and for the purposes...

In the footsteps of Saint Francis

GIOVANNI CHIFARI
In the footsteps of Saint Francis
The feast of Saint Francis follows by a few days the one of Padre Pio, profoundly marked by the figure of the “Poor Man of Assisi". Two religious, a priest and a deacon, gift to the Church, sign and prophecy of a constant and renewed offer of mercy, according to the form of the holy Gospel and of the Eucharist. Grafted in the seed of Christ, “very similar” to him, (even the eastern tradition refers to the Saints in this way), they show the face of Christ, who "came not to be served...

A counter current Pope

ITALO D'ANGELO
A counter current Pope
I read with surprise and regret on the media about document written by 62 priests and theologians on an alleged accusation of propagation of heresy by the Holy Father. The fact brought back to my mind periods and memories of my youth. I attended the Classical Lyceum in a seminar and I remember that in the course of a discussion one my school-fellow (today an esteemed priest) criticized the figure of the Holy Father. I was scandalised and, situation that was unimaginable at that time in a...

THE DIFFICULT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND PSYCHOANALYSIS

FEDERICO CENCI
THE DIFFICULT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND PSYCHOANALYSIS
"I have consulted a Jewish psychoanalyst. For six months, I went to her house once a week to clarify some things". Many people were amazed by reading this revelation of Pope Francis, contained in the book that will soon be released in France Politique et Société (published by The Observatoire), which collects twelve dialogs of the Pontiff with the sociologist Dominique Wolton. Bergoglio and psychoanalysis Jorge Mario Bergoglio talks about the face to face encounter with this woman when he...

"BEWARE OF FALSE EXORCISTS"

PADRE FRANCESCO BAMONTE
As already pointed out in other occasions, in recent times the dioceses of Countries such as Italy have seen an increase of the request of information about the presence and the activities in the territory of exorcists by people who consider themselves afflicted by the evil one. Discussing the reasons of this phenomenon and the actual need for exorcistic intervention in individual cases, falls outside the scope of this note. As International Association of Exorcists, we are calling for...

The devil without covers

DON ALDO BUONAIUTO
The devil without covers
In the name of press freedom, of the freedom to tell, one can now twist any fact until arriving to a total invention, especially if the reason is to arouse a sensation, a scandal, to create contempt or shame. The false truths not only are in fashion but now, in this age that is saturated with any form of relativism, reversing the route appears almost impossible, on the contrary it can be even counterproductive to affirm the contrary. The Truth that makes man free, seems to be only a legacy...

The merchants of Regensburg

DON ALDO BUONAIUTO
The merchants of Regensburg
Before the horrific events of the Regensburg’s children we see the usual crows and chatterers arise. In front of a fact to be analysed in depth that relates to seventy years of history, we find, in most cases, partial analysts pro or against the Pope emeritus, pro or against the Catholic Church in general. The question, however, is first of all cultural, psychological, spiritual and requires a careful analysis of the times and the ways in which such disgraces originated, distinguishing the...

RETRACING THE STEPS OF SAINTS PETER AND PAUL

FABIO BERETTA
RETRACING THE STEPS OF SAINTS PETER AND PAUL
Saints Peter and Paul. One was a poor fisherman of Galilee; the other a Pharisee weaver of curtains of the Roman Empire. Two characters that are profoundly different, as different were their ways of encounter and relate with Jesus, that today the Church celebrates together as the fundamental pillars of the Christian faith. The one of today is a very ancient solemnity, inserted in the Roman Martyrologue long before Christmas. Three Holy Masses were celebrated since the IV century in Rome: one in...
