« Participons activement à la vie politique de notre pays, en y tissant l’étoffe neuve du vrai service »
Présidant la fête patronale de la paroisse Marie Immaculée, Mère de Dieu des Parcelles Assainies dans la banlieue dakaroise, ce dimanche 14 décembre 2014, l’Archevêque de Dakar a appelé les fidèles « à ne pas être timides et à ne pas briller par leur mutisme et leur absence » dans la gestion des collectivités locales. Il les a encouragés à prendre activement part à la vie politique du pays après leur avoir indiqué que la dévotion à Marie passe par un engagement de plus en généreux au service de l’Eglise, au sein de la paroisse comme au sein de l’église diocésaine, dans les communautés ecclésiales de base et dans les familles. Voici un extrait de son homélie.

Realpolitik o schizofrenia diplomatica? Il Papa avrebbe deciso di non ricevere il Dalai Lama a margine dell'incontro tenutosi ieri a Roma tra i Premi Nobel per la Pace per non scontentare i cinesi, con cui la Santa Sede sta tentando un dialogo per aiutare la Chiesa cattolica clandestina (8 milioni di fedeli perseguitati come i primi cristiani) ad uscire dall'angolo e da una persecuzione fatta di soprusi, arresti fuori da ogni regola giuridica, mancanza di rispetto dei diritti umani.

El cardenal De Paolis recuerda que el punto 52 de la Relatio final sinodal ya fue definido por la autoridad papal
Sandro Magister ha hecho pública la ponencia «La propuesta 52 del Sínodo Extraordinario sobre la Familia», en la que el cardenal Velasio de Paolis aborda el texto de ese punto de la Relatio final del pasado sínodo, que no recibió los dos tercios necesarios para su aprobación.
