      Volunteers Are Expression of God's Affection for World, Says John Paul II

      Analyzes Identity of Christian Volunteer With FOCSIV Members

      VATICAN CITY, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- John Paul II says the task of Christian volunteers is to make people experience their selfless dedication as an expression of "the tenderness of the heavenly Father."

      The Pope described the role of Christian volunteers when he met with members of the Federation of Christian Organizations of International Volunteer Service (FOCSIV), which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

      The Holy Father said that a volunteer, if he is a Christian, "is called, through his selfless dedication to brothers and sisters, to make in a certain sense 'experimentable' the providential tenderness of the heavenly Father."

      In fact, love of neighbor "needs to be nourished by the furnace of divine charity," if it is not to fall prey to reservations or exhaustion, the Pope said Saturday during the audience.

      "This implies prolonged moments of prayer, attentive and constant listening to the Word of God and, above all, a life centered on the mystery of the Eucharist," he added.

      The Holy Father encouraged FOCSIV members "to respond to the urgencies of all those who are obliged to live in conditions of difficulty or abandonment."

      During the meeting, the Pontiff was given a letter written on behalf of the thousands of children who are obliged to work, calling for worthy work for minors.

      "Baby Jesus is also a working child like us, the son of a carpenter," the children wrote in the letter.

      FOCSIV embraces 56 non-governmental organizations present in 79 countries. It boasts 66,000 volunteers who head 542 development projects.

      The federation started with the support of Pope Paul VI in 1972, when some lay people committed themselves to aid developing countries.

      Pope Confirms Plan to Visit Croatia in 2003

      VATICAN CITY, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- John Paul II confirmed his intention to travel to Croatia next year, when he met with Stjepan Mesic, the country's president.

      The Pope received the Croatian leader today in audience to thank him for the Christmas tree that Croatia donated for display in St. Peter's Square.

      The 28-meter (90-foot) fir will be lit up and fully decorated by Tuesday.

      Following the 15-minute audience, President Mesic met the press and revealed that the Holy Father confirmed his desire to return to Croatia, which he visited in 1994 and 1998. The president said he did not know the exact dates of the next papal visit.

      The Pope is expected to beatify lay youth Ivan Merz (1896-1928) and religious Mary of Jesus Petkovic (1892-1966) during his trip, according to Vatican sources.

      Croatia, a republic that declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, has 4.39 million inhabitants, 72% of whom are Catholics.

      Vatican Letter on Approval of U.S. Episcopate's Norms Against Abuses

      Sent by Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, to Bishop Wilton Gregory

      VATICAN CITY, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Here is the text of the letter sent by Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, =to the president of the U.S. bishops' conference, communicating the decree of "recognitio" (approval) of the "Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons" ("Essential Norms"). The norms were written and revised by the U.S. bishops.

      The Most Reverend Wilton D. GREGORY
      President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

      Your Excellency,

      With your letter dated November 15, 2002, you requested the recognitio for the "Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons", approved by the Episcopal Conference at the Plenary Assembly of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops which took place in Dallas on June 13-15, and revised in the recent General Meeting held in Washington on November 11-14.

      I am pleased now to send you the Decree of recognitio for the "Essential Norms", and wish to express renewed and sincere appreciation for the pastoral concern and resolve with which the bishops of the United States have addressed the distressing situation caused by such aberrant crimes.

      The Holy See is fully supportive of the bishops' efforts to combat and to prevent such evil. The universal law of the Church has always recognized this crime as one of the most serious offenses which sacred ministers can commit, and has determined that they be punished with the most severe penalties, not excluding -- if the case so requires -- dismissal from the clerical state (cf. Canon 1395 § 2). Moreover, the Holy Father in the year 2001 already had determined that this crime should be included among the most serious delicts ("graviora delicta") of clerics, to underscore the Holy See's aversion to this
      betrayal of the trust which the faithful rightly place in Christ's ministers, and to ensure that the guilty will be appropriately punished. He therefore gave to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith a special competence in this matter, applicable for the whole Church, establishing a particular procedure to be followed (cfr. Motu proprio "Sacramentorum sanctitatis tutela" of May 18, 2001, AAS, 93, 2001, p. 737).

      As the Holy Father has affirmed on various occasions, the Holy See is spiritually united to the victims of abuse and to their families, and encourages particular concern for them on the part of the bishops, priests and the whole Catholic community. This closeness is now once again confirmed through the approval of the present "Essential Norms", which will help to restore, wherever necessary, the trust of the faithful in their pastors, assuring at the same time the defense of the innocent and the just punishment of the guilty.

      The "Essential Norms" in their present formulation are intended to give effective protection to minors and to establish a rigorous and precise procedure to punish in a just way those who are guilty of such abominable offenses because, as the Holy Father has said, "there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young".

      At the same time, by ensuring that the true facts are ascertained, the approved Norms protect inviolable human rights -- including the right to defend oneself -- and guarantee respect for the dignity of all those involved, beginning with the victims. Moreover, they uphold the principle, fundamental in all just systems of law, that a person is considered innocent until either a regular process or his own spontaneous admission proves him guilty.

      The genuine ecclesial communion between the Episcopal Conference and the Apostolic See, demonstrated once again in these painful circumstances, prompts us all to pray earnestly to God that from the present crisis might emerge, as the Holy Father has stated: "a holier priesthood, a holier episcopate, and a holier Church" (cf. L'Osservatore Romano, 24 April 2002). In this way, the bonds of communion which unite the bishops with their priests and deacons, and the faithful with their pastors, will be further strengthened.

      The Holy See, moreover, together with the bishops of the United States, fee ls duty-bound in justice and in gratitude to reaffirm and defend the good name of the overwhelming majority of priests and deacons who are and have always been exemplary in their fidelity to the demands of their vocation but have been offended or unjustly slandered by association. As the Holy Father has said, we cannot forget "the immense spiritual, human and social good that the vast majority of priests and religious in the United States have done and are still doing". Indeed, it appears necessary to devote every available resource to restoring the public image of the Catholic priesthood as a worthy and noble vocation of generous and often sacrificial service to the People of God.

      As regards religious priests and deacons I would ask the representatives of the Episcopal Conference to continue to meet with the representatives of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men to examine more closely the various aspects of their particular situation, and to forward to the Holy See whatever agreements they may reach.

      With the promise of prayers for your important work in serving the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, I remain Sincerely yours in Christ,

      + Giovanni Battista Card. Re
      Prefect Congregation for Bishops

      Vatican City, December 8, 2002

      Sierra Leone Prelate Asks the World's "Powerful" to Help

      Nation Struggling After a Decade of Wars

      MAKENI, Sierra Leone, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Bishop Giorgio Biguzzi of Makeni has sent a cry for peace from his west African home, long racked by war, to the "powerful of the earth."

      "From the South of the world, lacerated by wars all too often fomented by the greed of interests acting at a distance, I make an appeal for peace to the powerful of the earth, on behalf of our people here, in Sierra Leone, who for almost 10 years suffered the horrors of war," Bishop Biguzzi said, through a message to Misna missionary agency.

      He observed how his people "have lived years of terror characterized by deeds of blood, destruction, violation, violence against children, mutilations, sackings, masses of displaced and refugees."

      "Every [act of] violence was met by another, yet more cruel," he said. "This infernal cycle was only broken when there was a determined will for dialogue."

      The bishop continued: "Now we enjoy a period of peace and confidence in the future. Fortified by this experience, we want to cry out our call for peace to President George W. Bush, to Western governments, to the Security Council, to the Israeli government, to terrorist groups."

      An 11-year-old conflict between the government and the Revolutionary United Front led to tens of thousands of death and the displacement of more than 2 million people, well over a third of the population. War was finally declared over earlier this year and peaceful elections were held in May.

      Venezuelan Bishops Plead for Proposals to End Country's Crisis

      CARACAS, Venezuela, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Amid the general strike against President Hugo Chávez, the Venezuelan bishops' conference urged government and opposition negotiators to offer "reasonable and urgent" proposals for the good of the country.

      The bishops' statement, entitled "Let Us Avoid Destruction, Let Us Build Reconciliation" and published Friday, appeals for peace and tolerance.

      Asked if he could suggest ways out of the crisis, the president of the episcopal conference, Archbishop Baltazar Porras of Merida, answered: "We do not have a concrete answer to that, but what we do ask with anguish, firmness and hope is that those who have this responsibility offer an alternative." "It is imperative to find ways that are peaceful, democratic, political in the noblest sense, in keeping with the manifest will of the sovereign people," the bishops' statement says.

      "The escalation of confrontations that we have experienced in recent days threatens to become a national tragedy," the episcopal conference explained. "This crisis already has claimed its dead, whom we must not forget."

      The bishops made an appeal for respect for the media, the object of violent attacks in recent days. At the same time, they called on the media to exercise "its ethical and professional responsibility, without manipulation or alarmism."

      Bethlehem Facing Another Sad Christmas

      Missionaries' Message Highlights the Misery and Confinement

      BETHLEHEM, West Bank, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- While the military occupation of Bethlehem continues, the missionaries of the Caritas Baby Hospital made an urgent appeal for the world to remember the residents of this "cage-city."

      In the context of the Christmas celebration, the Isabelina Franciscans of Padua, who run the hospital, sent a message to the Roman Work of Pilgrimages.

      "Bethlehem is dying from the indifference of the whole Christian world," they explain in their appeal. "The fate of this city is to pay, and pay again for those who sow death: condemned to a massive punishment, we live like prisoners, like caged animals, and we eat thanks to humanitarian organizations."

      "We are not in a city of terrorists to merit this continual and brutal repression," the Franciscans said. "We are in a humiliated, extenuated city already reduced to a mortal cage, trampled by endless violence.

      "With only a few days left before Christmas, here, in Bethlehem, we no longer know what it means to celebrate. Misery reigns in our deserted streets, invaded by filth. From the tanks, today too, like yesterday and the day before, the soldiers cry out the orders of the Israeli army: 'Curfew. It is prohibited to go out!' Today we are still prisoners."

      "How can we remain indifferent? How can silence be maintained? How can they keep us enslaved, confining us to our homes as to a tomb, impeding us from moving about freely in our city, depriving our children of school for such a long time?" they ask.

      The Caritas Baby Hospital was built thanks to the Swiss-German Caritas. The occupation of Bethlehem began on Nov. 22, a few hours after a Palestinian -- who had left this city -- carried out a massacre in a bus in nearby Jerusalem.

      The Israeli army has no plans to leave Bethlehem before Christmas, according to Radio Jerusalem.

      An Israeli withdrawal is not possible at present because it would be "taken advantage of by hostile elements," explained the Israeli chief of staff, General Moshe Yaalon.

      He said, however, that Israel will consent to the celebration of Christmas and to Christian Arabs' access to Bethlehem, both those who have Israeli citizenship as well as those who reside in the West Bank.

      Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said that Palestinian President Yasser Arafat will not be permitted to attend Midnight Mass in Bethlehem.

      Xaverian Center in Burundi Wins an "Alternative Nobel"

      Aims for Peace in Troubled Region

      BUJUMBURA, Burundi, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- The Xaverian Fathers' Centre Jeunes Kamenge here has received an award from the Right Livelihood Award Administration for its efforts for peace among ethnic groups in central Africa.

      The Right Livelihood Award Administration (http://www.rightlivelihood.se) was set up in 1980 through an endowment provided by Swedish-German author and statesman Jakob von Uexkull, and announces its awards in Sweden every year.

      The Xaverian center received the award, affectionately known as the "alternative Nobel prize," last Tuesday in Stockholm's Parliament.

      The center members were recognized "for their exemplary and indomitable courage and compassion, which have proved that, even after nine years of murderous civil war, young people from different ethnic groups can learn to live and build a future together in peace and harmony."

      Founded in 1991 by Xaverian missionaries, the center is a meeting place for young people of various ethnic backgrounds, social classes, countries and religions, ranging in age from 16 to 30. Located in an area devastated by the war, the center itself was endangered.

      The missionaries, however, were not discouraged, and through cultural and sports activities, as well as programs of reconstruction and socially useful works during summer holidays, worked for reconciliation and peace.

      "The award ... recognizes the work of the center for peace, dialogue and reconciliation, work which is not accepted by everyone," its director, Father Claudio Marano, told Vatican Radio.

      "Almost every day, people from abroad come to visit us, but to give us an award means we are recognized at the official and international level as valid peace workers," he said. "The greatest challenge in Burundi, for foreigners as for natives, has been to embrace diversity."

      Trafficking in Women Is Targeted by Christian Aid Groups

      European Organizations Aim to Cooperate More Closely

      BRUSSELS, Belgium, DEC. 16, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Churches and religious organizations from all over Europe are unveiling a new plan to combat trafficking in women, Caritas-Europe reported.

      The Christian Action and Networking Against Trafficking in Women (CAT) project launched today combines ongoing activities of various services in the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Greece, Germany, Lithuania, Romania, Russia and Ukraine, as well as of the Conference of European Churches.

      The project has been initiated by the churches' Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME) and Caritas-Europe and will cooperate with other agents active in the fight against trafficking.

      The project will be carried out with the financial support of the EU-STOP-Program. Welcoming the financial support from the European Commission, CCME General Secretary Doris Peschke expressed "hopes that the excellent work already done by churches and their agencies on the local and national level will become more visible and more effective through the international cooperation."

      Exchange of experiences and know-how against trafficking will be at the heart of the CAT project.

      Internal communication will be strengthened and project results will be shared with a broader public, in part through Internet.

      The "Coatnet" (Catholic Organizations against Trafficking in Women), which is already in place as an initiative of Caritas, will become an ecumenical portal for Christian initiatives against trafficking.

      "All these measures should help to make our actions more effective and primarily aim at improving the assistance for and protection of victims," said Martina Liebsch, coordinator of Coatnet.

      The ecumenical CAT project is planned for one year, the organizers reported. The partners involved are confident that the initiative will gain momentum and become even broader over the next year.

      "The criminal networks of traffickers are active internationally, so our responses need to be as international and as proactive as possible," Doris Peschke, the CCME's general secretary, said in Brussels on Sunday.
