Help from the West for so-called moderate opposition groups in Syria is ending up in the hands of Daesh (ISIS) and other extremists, according to a Catholic Patriarch from Damascus, who says the crisis in the country is deepening. Hitting out against the West's Middle East policies, Patriarch Gregorios said: "If [the West] helps moderates in Syria in a direct way, [it is] helping ISIS in an indirect way. "If you give money to the weak, moderate groups one day, it will get into the hands of the powerful, militant groups the next.
Created by Excelsis to celebrate the Petrine succession of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis, Pontifex Maximus, 266th Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. The same love and compassion of Christ, 'impels us to be near people and with them in their daily life, like the first Jesuits to take once again to the streets of our cities, in order to read there in the very heart of people's existence the signs of the times, the signs of the Spirit's action.'
This report is contributed by John Pontifex of Aid to the Church in Need. Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, who was the first Bishop of Rawind, said he was encouraged by Wednesday's decision by Pakistan's Supreme Court to grant a stay of execution for Asia Bibi to allow the case against her to be re-opened. The death penalty was upheld last October by the Lahore High Court but yesterday the Supreme Court suspended the sentence until the end of the appeal process. "I hope the court will recognise this and set aside the conviction."

Ms. Lozano said: "People don't feel protected by the UN soldiers; the information we have received suggests that they are supporting the jihadist camps or at least they are not taking action against the indoctrination of children and the barbaric treatment of them."
"That's not right," the Pope said the Morales as he handed over the international symbol of communism, the hammer and sickle, adorned with a figure of Jesus. According to CNN , a spokeswoman for Morales said that the gift wasn't intended to be political: Bolivia's communications minister, Marianela Paco, defended the gift as symbolic: "The sickle evokes the peasant, the hammer the carpenter, representing humble workers, God's people."

I find it necessary to strongly disagree with some of the conclusions reached in the new encyclical from Pope Francis, which can be read in English here . An improved human condition enables people to take better care of the natural world, and develop the technology to minimize the harmful effects of industry. The definition of "poverty" in the United States bears little resemblance to what it means in the rest of the world.
If the world's rich nations do not pay for their "social debt," to poor people around the world the entire humanity will be placed at risk, Pope Francis said today. The leader of 1.2 billion people belonging to the Catholic Church is warning the world about "synthetic agrotoxins" harming birds and insects to bioaccumulation from industrial waste displaying not just a deep understanding of science but also rare impatience with the indifference shown by the world's rich and powerful to the plight of the less-privileged.
Before leaving the house early one morning in 63 BC, an anxious Julius Caesar told his mother, "Today thou shalt see thy son either pontifex maximus... or an exile." Caesar was running for his first BIG elected office- pontifex maximus, the high priest of Rome. And he was a young upstart at the time. His opponents were all older, more
Olivia Nuzzi is a writer and journalist who covers politics for The Daily Beast. It's an odd sensation to be sitting on the back of a golf cart, holding on for dear life, as a member of Hillary Clinton's security team--bald and meat-headed, his blazer straining to remain stitched around his bulky arms--speeds like O.J. Simpson in order to deliver
The Pope said the idea came to him after he noticed many young people had given up the tradition of saying grace before a meal in favour of Instagramming a picture of their dish. "The kids these days express their faith in different ways and I want them to know I'm 'down' with it," the Pope said while gesturing with a downward peace sign. The Pope acknowledged that some moderate Catholics may choose to simply use a praying hands emoji or the smiley face with a halo emoji.
