Le Pape salue la «vie exemplaire» de Mgr Schotte
Nul n'est prophète en son pays. Alors que la mort du cardinal Pieter Jan Schotte passe, pour ainsi dire, inaperçue en Belgique, le pape Jean-Paul II a adressé, mardi, un message aux proches du défunt pour souligner combien il avait apprécié «le service généreux» de son collaborateur dont il souligna aussi «la grande attention aux questions sociales en pleine fidélité à l'Evangile».

The role of bishops in the Church and in the world
Two years after the gathering of representatives of the world’s Catholic bishops in Rome, the Pope used the twenty-fifth anniversary of his election last week to promulgate its conclusions – an exhortation on the role of the bishop, the “servant of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the hope of the world”. The main interest of Pastores Gregis is how it deals with objections to Roman centralisation. It does so by declaring the concept of subsidiarity to be a dead letter when applied to the Church.

Taiwan: Catholics Committed in Evangelization of Mainland China
The Catholic Church in Taiwan is committing herself to be a bridge for the evangelization of mainland China, highlighted this week Cardinal Jan Pieter Schotte, Secretary general of the Synod of Bishops. In declarations to Fides during his trip to Taiwan, Cardinal Schotte said that Church in the island "welcomed the mandate issued by the Pope in 1984. It is giving serious attention to his call to be a bridge between the universal Church and the Church in mainland China, today a martyr Church."

Kardinal Schotte prägte die Kirche
Zwei Jahrzehnte lang gehörte der, wie gestern gemeldet, verstorbene Kardinal Jan Pieter Schotte zu den prägenden Persönlichkeiten der katholischen Kirche. Als Generalsekretär der Bischofssynode koordinierte der belgische Priester von 1985 bis Februar 2004 die Institution, die vom Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzil als Organ der kirchlichen Kollegialität eingerichtet wurde, die - freilich nur beratend - die Kirchenleitung auf eine breitere Basis stellen sollte. Erstes Projekt des Scheut-Missionars Schottes war im Herbst 1985 die außerordentliche Bischofssynode anlässlich »20 Jahre Konzilsende«.
