Quotes

"On Sunday, after Mass, we will plant an olive tree in the place where the missile fell. This is our only response to the bombs and violence that for years have tried to devastate our lives"
Commenting on the situation, Sarah-Jayne Clifton, Director of Jubilee Debt Campaign said: "This situation has been forced upon Argentina by predatory vulture fund speculators and the bizarre rulings of a US judge. Thankfully this time the default is unlikely to have a serious impact on Argentina. Its first default in 2001 actually kick-started economic recovery."
Bishop William Shomali, Patriarchal Vicar of the Patriarch of Jerusalem of the Latins said: "It is an absurd spiral: both sides must listen to the voice of reason, stop the bloodshed and begin negotiations in order to address and solve problems. Otherwise all this violence will continue to repeat itself cyclically, the same causes will continue to produce the same effects"
After the invitation comes the conversation. Cardinal Vincent said. "Bernadette was asked to come to the Grotto for two weeks to meet Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and to talk with her. We only have six days. We must go there too, not out of curiosity but to listen and talk honestly."
