PRIESTS TARGETED IN NIGERIA Nina Shea, director of the Center for Religious Freedom at The Hudson Institute discusses the rise in anti-Catholic violence in Nigeria, the latest on former Hong Kong bishop, Cardinal Joseph Zen, and more.
In this week's interview segment, Vatican Insider welcomes back Fr. Christopher Pearson, pastor of Most Precious Blood parish in London. As I mentioned last week in Part I of our conversation, we've been friends for over a dozen years, as you will hear in the amusing start of our conversation, and Fr. Christopher was in Rome to concelebrate at the January 5 funeral of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. What links us in friendship is one of Pope Benedict's major achievements – the creation in 2009 of the Personal Ordinariate, a canonical structure within the Catholic Church established to enable “groups of Anglicans” to join the Catholic Church while preserving elements of their liturgical and spiritual patrimony. Fr. Chris was an Anglican pastor for 15 years and talks about his becoming a Catholic priest. He highlights Benedict's great desire for Christian Unity, citing the Ordinariate as one example of how that can be achieved.
Today, we have a very special edition of Follow to Lead, looking at the impact Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI had on Catholic Education. For this podcast, we are joined by three members of the Duc In Altum Board of Directors, Rich Meyer, President of JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, CA; Andy Tylicki, President of St. James Academy in Lenexa, KS, and Dr. Todd Flanders, Headmaster at Providence Academy in Plymouth, MN.

Pope Benedict XVI has died?! How can it be?In this episode, Logos discusses some of impact Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has had on us personally as well as society and the Catholic Church at large. Pope Benedict was not simply a pope. Benedict was a scholar better known as Ratzinger who wrote on numerous subjects such as: science, scripture, anthropology, epistemology, philosophy, music, art, and, above all, theology. In a certain way, the Second Vatican Council can be seen through his thought and dedication to the Church. But, what can the general population take away from this figure? Well, first and foremost, a re-awakening of society to the important role of the Church! Secondly, how to engage in fruitful conversation by taking the extreme positions and reaching a coherent synthesis. And, lastly, how to love the Person of Truth: Jesus Christ. Enjoy this episode! We hope you learn and take something from it. God Bless!Support the show

Cardinal George Pell, an Australian prelate who served as the Vatican's first financial overlord, has died. The cardinal was also intimately involved with the present revision of the English translation of the Mass and had been the most senior Catholic cleric to be convicted and imprisoned for child sexual abuse. The judgment was later unanimously overturned by a full bench of Australia's high court, but only after he served more than 400 days in maximum-security prisons. On “Inside the Vatican” this week, hosts Ricardo da Silva, S.J., and Gerard O'Connell, delve into Cardinal Pell's legacy dealing with sexual abuse—not only the charges of which he was exonerated, but also the controversial approach he took in dealing with the clerical sexual abuse of minors when he was the archbishop of Melbourne, which some people argue, Ricardo says, “was much more reform to protect the abusers than those abused.” They also look at his stealthy and much-praised reforms to Vatican finances, when he served as the first prefect for the then-Secretariat of the Economy under Pope Francis, with whom he “was not exactly 100 percent on the same theological vision of church as,” says Gerry. “One of the first things the pope aimed at was the reform of Vatican finances—he knew that that really was a jungle,” Gerry adds. “And so he chose what he called the ranger, the Australian ranger. And he said, ‘You take charge.'” Cardinal Joseph Zen Zi-kiun, the 90-year-old prelate from Hong Kong, who was arrested on suspicious charges last year, was given special permission to travel to the Vatican to attend the funeral of his friend, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. While in Rome, Cardinal Zen also met with Pope Francis. The meeting sparked questions about what many have thought to be an adversarial relationship between the two. Gerry and Ricardo parse the meeting, which Gerry judges to have been “something great; a healing event, a moment of reconciliation.” For Ricardo, the meeting between the two reveals how “complex these issues are,” he says. And it also reveals a larger move “by certain religious media—Catholic media—to put Pope Francis in opposition to others, or others in opposition to Pope Francis,” he argues. “This is a simplification that doesn't tell half of the story.” In the second half of the show, Ricardo and Gerry dig into the news surrounding Archbishop Georg Gänswein, who was Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI's closest aide and confidant as well as his personal secretary. Gänswein is releasing a tell-all book that he says will answer long-held questions about, among others, the complicated relationship between Pope Francis and the pope emeritus; the drama surrounding the butler responsible for the “Vatileaks” scandal—which sought to expose the Vatican's dirty finances; and the 30-year-old missing person case of Emanuela Orlandi or “Vatican Girl,” as she has come to be known in the title of a Netflix documentary. Ricardo and Gerry address some of the questions the book raises, and whether the book will further compromise the archbishop's already tenuous relationship with the present pope. Gerry has read an advanced copy of the book, and with it, he says that “Gänswein has shot himself in the foot.” Links from the show: Australia's Cardinal Pell dies suddenly at 81 Pope Francis meets with Hong Kong's Cardinal Zen the day after Benedict XVI's funeral Pope Benedict XVI's secretary, advocate and confidant: What you need to know about Georg Gänswein Pope Francis has private audience with longtime Benedict aide amid tell-all book fallout Cardinal Pell blasts Pope Francis in secret memo: ‘This pontificate is a disaster' ‘Vatican Girl': subject of Netflix's true-crime show has case reopened by Holy See Learn more about your ad choices.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI—scholar, teacher, theologian, prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, and finally supreme pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church until his resignation in 2013—died on December 31, 2022, at the age 95. Whether the subject was Islam, ecumenism, the rise and decline of the West, or simply "Who is Jesus Christ?,” Benedict opened up discussions once considered taboo and caused even hardened secularists to rethink some of their positions. For today's episode of Acton Line, in remembrance of Pope Benedict XVI's life and legacy, we're airing a lecture from Sam Gregg, currently senior research fellow at the American Institute for Economic Research, illustrating how much the pope changed the focus of Christian engagement by addressing political, social, and economic issues.

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been countless reflections on the life and work of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, highlighting his rich theological writings and his decades of church service and even some of the challenging moments he faced before, during and after his papacy. He was a complex man with so much experience. Let us pray that he might rest in the peace of Christ forever. Whenever a world-historical event happens related to the papacy, host Mike Jordan Laskey likes to call up his friend Dr. Christopher Bellitto, Ph.D. Chris is a medievalist, a church historian and a professor of history at Kean University in New Jersey. He's a frequent media commentator on church history and contemporary Catholicism, and you might have seen him quoted in recent days in the Washington Post, CNN, NBC and other outlets. He always brings the long view to current events as a scholar of history. Chris talked about the history of papal resignations and what lessons the church might learn from how Benedict's post-papacy unfolded. He also talked a bit about the history of Jesuit superior general resignations, and teased his upcoming book from Georgetown University Press titled “Humility: The Secret History of a Lost Virtue.” Learn more about Dr. Bellitto: https://sites.google.com/a/kean.edu/christopher-m-bellitto-ph-d/ AMDG is a production of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States. https://www.jesuits.org/ https://beajesuit.org/ twitter.com/jesuitnews facebook.com/Jesuits instagram.com/wearethejesuits youtube.com/societyofjesus

And how will his decision to resign the papacy, the first time in 600 years that this occurred, and handling of the Church's sex abuse scandal be factored into his legacy? Then the guys turn their attention to Rep. Kevin McCarthy's election as Speaker of the House after 15 rounds of voting. Is this a glorious mess that points to a return to normal order in the House? Or a sign of complete disarray in Congress and the Republican Party? Both? Finally, they examine the injury to Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin during last week's Monday Night Football game.

On Dec. 31, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died at the age of 95. During his long career as a towering figure in the Catholic Church in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond—especially his decades helming the Vatican's powerful Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, then as Pope and Pope Emeritus—Benedict was involved in nearly all of the Church's crises and controversies. He cracked down on liberation theologians, held a reactionary line on homosexuality at the height of the AIDS crisis, and slowly awakened to the depths and depravity of the Catholic sex-abuse scandal—but he also wrote movingly about God's love and took positions on the environment and the economy that would be mostly ignored by his conservative fans. To try to make sense of Benedict's life and work, especially his relationship with American Catholics, Matt is joined by Michael O'Loughlin, the national correspondent at America magazine and author of Hidden Mercy: AIDS, Catholics, and the Untold Stories of Compassion in the Face of Fear.Listen to the entire conversation by subscribing to Know Your Enemy on Patreon!

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI was laid to rest just before noon (Rome time) on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2023, in the grottoes underneath St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, where the mortal remains of many pontiffs reside. About 50,000 people came to the Vatican to pay their final respects to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI—who served the Catholic Church for nearly eight years before his historic retirement in February 2013—the first time in 600 years that a pope had resigned from office. From the time of his resignation until his death, Benedict had led a life of relative quiet and contemplation at a monastery inside the Vatican. This week on “Inside the Vatican,” Ricardo da Silva, S.J., an associate editor at America Media, speaks with Gerard O'Connell, our regular co-host on the show, and David Gibson, the director of the Center on Religion and Culture at Fordham University in New York and the author of The Rule of Benedict: Pope Benedict XVI and His Battle with the Modern World. In the first part of the show, Ricardo talks with Gerry and David about what made this first-ever funeral of a pope emeritus different from that of a pope who dies while still in office. They also address the criticism that Pope Francis' homily did not sufficiently eulogize and recognize the legacy of the former pope. In the second half of the show, Ricardo, Gerry and David discuss the legacy of Pope Benedict's nearly eight years as pope and his 24 years as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Crosstalk America from VCY America
On December 31st, the media was reporting that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI had passed away. The Associated Press reported that at least 25-30,000 would come on Monday, but by the end of the evening, Fox News reported that 65,000 had passed through St. Peter's Basilica. Tomorrow will be the funeral mass, presided over by Pope Francis.--Why are so many people fascinated by the pope and the Catholic religion itself-- Returning to Crosstalk to deal with these and other related issues was Mike Gendron. Mike is founder and director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry. Mike was a devout Roman Catholic for over 3 decades and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church above all else. Mike searched the Scriptures and was amazed to find that what he read in Scripture contradicted the teachings and traditions of the church he had been a part of for so long. He trusted Jesus as his Savior and now the Bible has become his sole authority in all matters of faith. Mike is the author of the books, Preparing for Eternity and Contending for the Gospel and has produced numerous videos with warnings concerning false teachings vs. the truth of the Scriptures.--According to Mike, Catholics will say that Pope Benedict was the 265th leader of their religion and the first German pope in over a years. That's interesting when you consider that Germany is a nation that was at the center of 16th Century reformation.--Pope Benedict was ultra conservative and considered to be the doctrinal guru of the Roman Catholic religion. Before being elected pope in 1994, he co-authored the Catechism of the Catholic Church which has become the doctrinal authority of the church ever since.

Kevin McCarthy was hoping day 2 to get over the Speaker of the House finish line, but he is still more than a dozen votes short of reaching that 218 mark necessary to become Speaker.

Dozens, and possibly hundreds, of Russian soldiers were killed early New Year's Day by a Ukrainian strike using the US-supplied HIMARS rocket launcher. The question is whether Ukraine also used US intelligence data to target the Russians. 5) Russia admits 63 soldiers killed in missile strike, but Ukraine says 400; 4) Thousands pay respects to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI; 3) UK's National Health System accused of allowing men who identify as trans to treat women requesting same-sex care; 2) Woman arrested for praying silently near abortion clinic; 1) John Piper gestures so wildly while preaching his Apple Watch tries to call 911.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died at 9:34 a.m. Rome time, today, Saturday, December 31st, 2022. On this special update episode of “Inside the Vatican,” veteran Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell joins host Colleen Dulle for a conversation on the emeritus pope's funeral arrangements, his legacy, and Gerry's memories of him. Joseph Ratzinger was elected pope and took the name Benedict XVI in 2005 after the long papacy of John Paul II. In 2013, Benedict XVI became the first pope in 600 years to resign voluntarily from his office, which made it possible for future popes to resign if they should find their mental or physical health failing or the weighty burden of office too much for them to bear. Benedict lived as an emeritus pope for almost 10 years, a period longer than he was pope. This evening at the Vatican, Pope Francis said of his predecessor, “With emotion we remember his person so noble, so kind. And we feel in our hearts so much gratitude: gratitude to God for having given him to the Church and to the world; gratitude to him, for all the good he accomplished, and especially for his witness of faith and prayer, especially in these last years of his retired life. Only God knows the value and strength of his intercession, of his sacrifices offered for the good of the Church.” Read more on the life and legacy of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI at americamagazine.org.

Saturday on PBS News Weekend, we look at the lives of two significant figures who died in the final days of the year: Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, whose controversial reign ended with his resignation, and trailblazing journalist Barbara Walters, whose interviews and legacy made her a cultural icon. Plus, we look back at the highs and lows of the rollercoaster that was 2022. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
Francis said Benedict was a kind and noble man who was a gift to the Church and the world. The faithful have been visiting St Peter's Square in Vatican City to pay their respects. The former pope led the Roman Catholic Church for nearly eight years until 2013 when he stood down due to ill health, the first pope to do so for 600 years. Also on the programme, Christiane Amanpour of CNN pays tribute to Barbara Walters, the trailblazing US news anchor who paved the way for generations of women journalists, who has died at the age of 93. And another chance to hear some of Newshour's best interviews of the past year. (Image: A picture of the late Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI at Saint Peter's Square, Rome. Credit: EPA)
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died Saturday morning in a Vatican City monastery at the age of 95. In St. Peter's Basilica, Pope Francis remembered his predecessor, who made history by resigning in 2013, as "noble" and "kind." But Benedict's papacy was marked by a conservative defense of church doctrine and struggles over dealing with the clergy sex abuse scandal. Laura Barrón-López reports.

Today, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died. In this episode, we provide a short obituary and what we know about the upcoming funeral, and discuss the future of Pontifacts
In a surprise statement at the end of his public audience on Dec. 28, Pope Francis appealed for “a special prayer” for Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI because, he said, “he is very sick.” Just after the audience, Francis went to visit Benedict at his residence in the Vatican. On “Inside the Vatican” this week, veteran Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell and host Colleen Dulle give an update on the former pope's health. According to a Vatican spokesman, by the time of the podcast's release, his condition had stabilized somewhat overnight but remained serious. The rest of the podcast looks at three of Pope Francis' Christmas messages: His homily for Christmas Eve Mass in St. Peter's Basilica, his Christmas Day Urbi et Orbi message, and his pre-Christmas address to the Roman Curia. Gerry first gives an inside look at Christmas Eve Mass in St. Peter's Square where, he said, the crowds had nearly returned to their pre-Covid size. Colleen and Gerry unpack the pope's homily, which focused on the image of Jesus' manger and urged those present, including foreign dignitaries, to do “something good” this Christmas. On Christmas Day, the pope used his Urbi et Orbi address to draw attention to places of suffering in the world through the eyes of children. “May the Lord inspire us to offer concrete gestures of solidarity to assist all those who are suffering,” he said. “Tragically, we prefer to heed other counsels, dictated by worldly ways of thinking. Yet who is listening to the voice of the Child?” Finally, in his annual address to the Roman Curia, Pope Francis continued the theme of his addresses in past years, using insights from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola to call those who work in the Vatican's central offices to conversion.

On October11, 2012, I began recording a new series that will soon begin airing on Discerning Hearts with Dr. Adrian Walker, which we recorded at "Casa Balthasar", a house of discernment for men located in Rome, Italy, where he was offering instruction. Adrian served as the English translator of Pope Benedict XVI's book "Jesus of Nazareth" . With the historic events occurring with the Synod on the New Evangelization and start of the Year of Faith, we took some time aside to discuss the book and the influence of our Holy Father.
