In real life, my experience is that many Catholics recognize the competing values at stake and don’t envy bishops who have to make virtually unprecedented judgment calls.
This past week the Catholic Church in South Carolina suffered the loss of one of its younger priests, Father Marcin Zahuta, 42, who sacrificed the opportunity of playing professional soccer in Poland to enter the seminary and come to the United States as a missionary.
A Catholic archbishop has rejected a church instruction barring him from public appearances and vowed to go on denouncing “heresy and sectarianism.”
The first accusation of sexual abuse against a Polish bishop will serve as a testing ground for the Church’s new commitment to fighting sexual abuse, and how it manifests itself both locally and at the Vatican.
A Polish diocese that has the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau on its territory has dismissed new Jewish demands for the removal of a nearby Catholic church.
A Polish researcher has published the first study of religious practices among Christian prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau, as the 75th anniversary of the Nazi-run death camp’s liberation was marked in Israel and Poland.
