Israel Giving Concessions to the Church

by Steve Ray on May 5, 2009

I am on my way to Israel today to lead two groups in the month of May. I will be there at the same time as the Pope is there. I will be watching this with great interest. Especially since the six churches are places we visit on every trip!

Israeli president pressing for diplomatic concessions to Vatican?
Israeli President Shimon Peres is pushing for acceptance of a proposal that would give the Church control over the most important Christian shrines in the country, according to an Israeli news media report. The report appeared following a May 1 negotiating session at which Israeli and Vatican officials worked to resolve remaining differences on a proposed juridical-economic accord that would define the rights of Church institutions in Israel. Some observers had speculated that the final agreement would be announced before the visit to Israel by Pope Benedict XVI this month, but the negotiations ended with an announcement that the talks would continue in December.

screen-capture-1Mary Ann Glendon recently pulled out of the Notre Dame University commencement because of the debacle with Fr. Jenkins and President Obama. Glendon’s daughter Liz Lev wrote to explain why her mother did what she did. Liz is a friend of mine in Rome and our guide when we take our groups to Rome. Nice Job Liz!

Fifty-nine bishops — and counting — speak out on Notre Dame.
