VATICAN : WITNESSES OF JESUS IN AFRICA TODAY


PAN AFRICAN CONGRESS FOR CATHOLIC LAITY
Vatican City, 13 July 2012 (VIS) - "Being witnesses of Jesus Christ in Africa today. 'Salt of the earth ... light of the World'" is the theme of the forthcoming Pan African Congress for Catholic Laity, which has been organised by the Pontifical Council for the Laity and is due to take place in Yaounde, Cameroon, from 4 to 9 September. The initiative is part of the council's tradition of organising continental and/or regional congresses for Catholic lay people in various parts of the world.
The event will be held at the Catholic University of Central Africa, and the decision to hold the congress in Africa is related to the Holy Father's apostolic trip to Cameroon and Angola in 2009 and, more recently, his visit to Benin in November 2011 to sign the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation "Africae Munus".
According to a communique released today: "the meeting demonstrates the commitment of the Pontifical Council for the Laity to journey together with the particular Churches. It also helps the laity to live their faith in communion with their pastors and to rediscover their co-responsibility for the Church’s mission in its many fields of apostolate".

EUROPE : GERMANY : TITANIC MAGAZINE PICTURE OF THE POPE ILLEGAL


A German magazine entitled Titanic has pictured Pope Benedict XVI with yellow stains on his white cassock. The Pontiff has begun legal procedures to halt further production of the magazine.
The headline above the picture reads: `Hallelujah in the Vatican - the leak has been found!" The back of the magazine shows another photo of the Pope with a brown mark.
One of the representatives of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Germany, Matthias Kopp, said the picture was an infringement of the Pope's personal rights and therefore illegal.

ASIA : SYRIA : NUNCIO PLEADS FOR INTERNATIONAL AID AS MASSACRES CONTINUE

ASIA NEWS REPORT:
Mgr Mario Zenari pleads with the UN Security Council in New York. The situation can only get worse if the international community remains divided. Some 200 people die in another massacre in Tremseh (Hama).


Damascus (AsiaNews) - "The international community should hurry up and help Syria out of this hellish trap," said Mgr Mario Zenari, apostolic nuncio to Damascus. Speaking to AsiaNews, he pleaded with the members of the United Nations Security Council, especially China and Russia, and the Arab League, to put aside their differences and do something tangible to stop the bloodshed that has cost 14,000 lives in the past 16 months.

After three weeks out of the country, the prelate returned to Syria only to find the situation had worsened since he had left.

In Tremseh, Hama province, 200 more innocent people died in another massacre today. Like in Houla and al-Qubayr, the military and rebels blame each other.

Combat helicopters and tanks struck at the village, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. They were followed by members of the Shabiha (ghosts) paramilitary militia, who carried out summary executions.

Syria's official news agency SANA, blamed Muslim terrorists for the incident, claiming that they are trying to sow fear and chaos in order to influence the UN Security Council in New York.

"The situation is getting worse," Mgr Zenari noted. "When I returned security was worse. It is no longer possible to move freely. Fighting and abductions are taking place in areas that were under control until recently."

The Security Council in New York saw China and Russia veto fresh sanctions against Bashar al-Assad's regime. Moscow and Beijing are opposed to any resolution against the Syrian government.

The two members accuse Western government of trying a repeat of the strategy used in Libya, taking advantage of UN resolutions to start a war in the region.

Opposition from Russia and China make UN and Arab League envoy Kofi Annan's work even harder. In recent weeks, he asked for Iran's support to try mediation with the regime and reach a peace deal.

On 16 July, the former UN secretary general will meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to get Russia on board.

"The international community must try to speak with a single voice and stop Syria from falling off the precipice," the Vatican nuncio said. "Without everyone's cooperation, Annan's great plan is worthless."

Increasingly, the innocent are the victims of the tragedy, especially children. "Killing the defenceless does not hurt only the Syrian people but humanity as a whole." (S.C.)

AFRICA : ANGOLA : INAUGURATION OF CATHEDRAL

Agenzia Fides REPORT - The Apostolic Nuncio of São Tomé and Principe, His Exc. Mgr. Novatus Rugambwa, presided along with some Angolan Bishops, the celebration of the inauguration of the Cathedral of the Diocese of Lwena, in the province of Moxico on Sunday, July 8. The celebration, which lasted several hours and was deeply felt by many of the faithful, was also attended by government authorities.
The inauguration of the Cathedral is a sign of rebirth and peace. During the 34 years of war in Angola (from 1968, the beginning of armed struggle for independence, to 2002, signing of the peace) the deterioration of the structures at all levels - the people and the Church – was incalculable.
According to information provided by Ans agency, the diocese of Lwena, which covers an area of 233,000 square kilometers, lived under the sign of persecution and violence. Many Christian communities for years - some even for decades – did not have or meet a priest or a missionary, kept themselves alive in total isolation imposed by the situation of war, thanks to the courage and decisive witness of so many lay catechists, in some cases reaching martyrdom.
When unexpectedly peace arrived, in 2002, the local Church started a process of reconstruction of the social and ecclesial fabric. Mgr. Tirso Blanco, SDB, Bishop of Lwena since March 2008, has promoted the creation of a diocesan preparatory seminary, the gradual reactivation of ancient churches and missions (main fruit of the lengthy missionary work of the Portuguese Benedictines in the colonial era), the return or the arrival of many religious congregations in the territory of the diocese. A Salesian community has been present in Lwena since 1982 where four Salesians work at the service of the parish, some Christian communities scattered in the rural area, the Oratory-Youth Center, a primary and secondary school, literacy centers and professional formation.

Matthew 10: 16 - 23


16 "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
17 Beware of men; for they will deliver you up to councils, and flog you in their synagogues,
18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them and the Gentiles.
19 When they deliver you up, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour;
20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
21 Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death;
22 and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes.
