Pope Benedict XVI
Benedict XVI is inviting the faithful to pause a moment in silence this Lent to listen to God speaking to their hearts.
The Pope reflected today on the Gospel story of the Samaritan women, whom Jesus spoke to at Jacob’s well, before praying the midday Angelus together with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
“The woman goes every day to get water from an ancient well put there by the patriarch Jacob, and that day Jesus was sitting there, ‘tired from the journey,’” the Pontiff explained… Read more »
And Jesus went on, ‘In truth I tell you, no prophet is ever accepted in his own country. ‘There were many widows in Israel, I can assure you, in Elijah’s day, when heaven remained shut for three years and six months and a great famine raged throughout the land, but Elijah was not sent to any one of these: he was sent to a widow at Zarephath, a town in Sidonia… Read more »

L-Isqfijiet Maltin qalu li bid-divorzju, iż-żwieġ ma jibqax aktar dejjiemi. Qalu li d-divorzju jmiss u jbiddel l-istess natura taż-żwieġ. Fi kliemhom, il-liġi li ddaħħal id-divorzju hija tentattiv ghal soluzzjoni ġuridika li tfarrak il-permanenza u l-istabilità tal-istituzzjoni taż-żwieġ għax tibdillu n-natura tiegħu.
F’Nota Dottrinali u Pastorali ndirizzata lis-saċerdoti, dwar l-impenn u l-imġiba tagħhom fir-rigward taż-żwieġ u l-familja, l-Isqfijiet Maltin spjegaw id-differenza bejn id-divorzju u l-annullament, u qalu li jaqblu li tingħata protezzjoni legali lill-persuni li jkunu f’sitwazzjoni ta’ koabitazzjoni; fakkru lis-saċerdoti li l-Knisja għandha d-dmir li ddawwal il-kuxjenza tan-Nisrani; ddikjaraw li l-leġiżlatur li ma jimxix fuq fundament etiku fit-tfassil tal-liġijiet ikun qed jagħmel ħsara lill-bniedem u lis-soċjetà… Read more »
