Advocates welcome global steps to help poor nations with pandemic recovery (Fri, 16 Apr 2021)
Cleveland 20210416T0930-PANDEMIC-GLOBAL-ECONOMIC-RECOVERY-1246122.JPG Workers sort freshly cut banana stems at a plantation for fibre extraction from the sheaths of trunks in Mukono, Uganda, April 3, 2021. After decades of British colonization, Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world. (CNS/Reuters/Abubaker Lubowa) Recent decisions by leading financial institutions and the world's leading economies to ease the debt burden of the world's poorest nations will help those countries respond to the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the executive director of Jubilee USA said. The decisions were reached during April meetings of the Group of 20 nations, or G-20, the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund. "We've made some real progress," said Eric LeCompte, who heads the alliance of faith-based development and debt relief advocacy organizations and has long advocated for financial reforms affecting the world's 73 poorest nations and dozens of other middle-income countries. "The steps will allow countries to respond to the pandemic and other needs," LeCompte told Catholic News Service April 15. "At the same time, with how serious the crisis is, we recognize we need to do a lot more and in some ways move quickly." Atop Jubliee USA's priority list was the creation of $650 billion in emergency reserve funds, known as Special Drawing Rights, or SDRs. He described the size of the fund package as the "biggest ever mobilization of such reserves." It includes more than $200 billion for developing countries, with about 10% of the funds being available to the poorest nations. LeCompte said his organization is working the with IMF on a process to transfer an additional $400 billion to developing countries, which have seen some of the most serious economic consequences from the spread of COVID-19. The IMF also canceled debt service payments for the poorest countries into October. LeCompte said the meetings saw the United States and the IMF support a minimum corporate tax and digital taxes that will help developing countries raise significant revenues for their pandemic response. The U.S. support was particularly vital because of its influence at the IMF and among the G-20. Jubilee USA, Bishop David J. Malloy of Rockford, Illinois, chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on International Justice and Peace, and Archbishop Roberto Gonzalez Nieves of San Juan, Puerto Rico, were among those who met with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen March 16 to press for the policies approved during the virtual meetings April 5-11. Pope Francis also urged action on behalf of poor and developing countries in a message to the World Bank Group and IMF as they met. He said that despite "our deeply held convictions that all men and women are created equal, many of our brothers and sisters in the human family, especially those at the margins of society, are effectively excluded from the financial world." "If we are to come out of this situation as a better, more humane and solidary world, new and creative forms of social, political and economic participation must be devised, sensitive to the voice of the poor and committed to including them in the building of our common future," the pope said. LeCompte echoed similar concerns, saying that he and others are troubled that "a few wealthy countries are going to have recovery" while "the majority of the world is not going to be having recovery." "For us, over the next year, our work with the U.S. bishops and the development community, it's going to be imperative we get solutions to all countries of the world, especially the developing middle-income countries that are experiencing the crisis," he said. LeCompte also called for more equitable distribution of vaccines worldwide through focused and expanded humanitarian aid. "Unless we act quickly, much of the developing world will not see vaccines until 2023," he said. // Advertisement Advertisement Enter your email address to receive free newsletters from NCR.

California lifts indoor worship rules; bishops say safety still a priority (Fri, 16 Apr 2021)
Sacramento, Calif. 20210414T1400-CALIF-BISHOPS-INDOOR-WORSHIP-1246015.JPG Catholics attend a special national Mass on the feast of St. Joseph at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles March 19, 2021, amid the coronavirus pandemic. Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, was the celebrant. (CNS/Isabel Cacho/Courtesy Archdiocese of Los Angeles) California's Catholic bishops "remain committed to the complete resumption of indoor worship in a responsible and safe manner," said an April 13 statement issued by the Executive Committee of the California Catholic Conference, the public policy arm of the bishops. The bishops also reiterated their earlier call for Catholics to get one of the COVID-19 vaccines if available to them so they can protect themselves, their family and the wider community, but noting: "One should always consult with their doctor regarding any personal medical concerns." Their statement came a day after the state of California lifted its mandatory limits on indoor worship. State officials said the new guidance was a response to several U.S. Supreme Court rulings striking down the mandates as a violation of the First Amendment's guarantee of the free exercise of religion. In its most recent decision, the high court sided with a couple of pastors, members of a Bible study group and other plaintiffs in Santa Clara County, California, who sued Gov. Gavin Newsom and other state officials over restrictions on private gatherings at someone's home. The rules limited such gatherings to people from only three households, with no more than 15 individuals allowed to attend — "including hosts and guests, children and adults." To reduce the possible spread of COVID-19, only "the same three households" were allowed to gather for various events, which ruled out in-home worship for several members from the same faith community but from many different households. Under its new guidelines, the California Department of Public Health still "strongly discouraged" indoor gatherings and suggested attendance should be limited to 25% of a building's capacity for the two-highest levels of the state's four-tier COVID-19 restrictions. It recommended a 50% capacity for the two lower levels — those areas with moderate to minimum spread of COVID-19. "Since last March of 2020 — before many jurisdictions even began offering any guidelines for indoor activities — the dioceses of California upheld the need to protect life and public health by voluntarily suspending indoor worship services," the bishops said in their statement. "As the pandemic dragged on through surges and plateaus," they said, "dioceses continued to stress the common good by voluntarily holding outdoor worship services and, only when safe, move some services indoors, but always with safety and health foremost." "Pandemic-weary Californians are welcoming many positive developments in the struggle against COVID-19," they continued. "Cases appear to be stabilizing in the Golden State, those 16 years and older are or will soon be eligible for vaccination and continued diligence by the public on commonsense precautions are positive and hopeful signs." However, they also noted vaccine availability "is still not consistent," especially for "some of the most vulnerable populations," and some people remain concerned about how the vaccines were tested and worry about reports that "new surges may be forming in some communities." "Local conditions vary so much that in order to keep our people safe, we will calibrate decisions on numbers and location to the varying conditions in each diocese," the bishops said. "Our parishes will continue to insist on appropriate social distancing, mask wearing, hand washing and other basic and simple precautions." In again encouraging Catholics to get vaccinated, they quoted a statement they issued in January: "Beyond simply protecting their own health and safety, Catholics also have an obligation to protect their family, friends and community by vaccinating as soon as feasible in accordance with public health guidelines and protocols in their area." "Catholics long to return to the celebration of holy Mass together safely and as one body of believers," the bishops said in closing. "After mostly staying apart for two celebrations of Christ's resurrection during Easter, God's call to us to gather again in prayer is especially strong. "Fully celebrating together safely and as a community is a pressing priority of all California dioceses." There are 12 Catholic dioceses in the state, which has a Catholic population of nearly 11 million. // Advertisement Advertisement Enter your email address to receive free newsletters from NCR.

As pandemic worsens in Brazil, pope tells bishops to be one with people (Fri, 16 Apr 2021)
CNS-1246125 Brazil covid c.JPG Medical workers take care of patients in the emergency room of the Nossa Senhora da Conceicao hospital in Porto Alegre, Brazil, March 11, 2021. In an April 15 video message, Pope Francis encouraged bishops in Brazil to remain united to overcome "one of the most difficult trials" in their country's history. (CNS/Reuters/Diego Vara) Bishops in Brazil must remain united, among themselves and with their people, to overcome "one of the most difficult trials in its history," Pope Francis said. In a video message sent April 15 to the general assembly of the Brazilian bishops' conference, the pope encouraged the bishops to give hope and charity "especially to those most in need so that they may smile again." "Everyone knows what it takes. It is possible to overcome the pandemic, it is possible to overcome its consequences," he said. "But we can do so only if we are united. The bishops' conference must be one at this time because the suffering people is one." The pope's message came as the government of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was drawing widespread condemnation for its lackluster response to the pandemic. As of April 16, nearly 366,000 people in Brazil have died due to COVID-19, the second highest number of deaths worldwide, according to Worldometer, a statistical site monitoring the pandemic. In a statement published April 15, Christos Christou, international president of Doctors Without Borders, criticized the Brazilian government's refusal to adopt "evidence-based public health measures." "As a result, science-based policies are associated with political opinions, rather than the need to protect individuals and their communities from COVID-19," Christou wrote. // Advertisement Advertisement In his video message to the country's bishops, the pope expressed his closeness to "the hundreds of thousands of families who mourn the loss of a loved one." "I ask God to grant the deceased eternal rest and to give comfort to the sorrowful hearts of their families, who often were not even able to say goodbye to their loved ones. And this leaving without being able to say goodbye, this leaving in the most deprived loneliness, is one of the greatest sorrows of those who leave and of those who remain," he said. Francis told the bishops that the Catholic Church must be "an instrument of reconciliation, an instrument of unity," and he encouraged them to "put aside divisions and disagreements." "Only in this way will you, as shepherds of the people of God, be able to inspire not only the Catholic faithful but also other Christians and other men and women of good will at all levels of society, including the institutional and governmental levels, to work together to overcome not only the coronavirus, but also another virus that has long been infecting humanity: the virus of indifference, which is born of selfishness and generates social injustice," the pope said.

Church in Haiti calls for national strike following violence, kidnappings (Thu, 15 Apr 2021)
Miami 20210415T1000-HAITI-NATIONAL-STRIKE-1246055.JPG Demonstrators march during a protest against the government of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse in Port-au-Prince March 28, 2021. (CNS photo/Reuters/Estailove ST-Val) In response to recent kidnappings of clergy and religious in Haiti and growing anarchy in the Caribbean nation, Catholic schools, churches and other entities called for a national strike April 15. "The violence has reached a high point — we see that this is the deepest point ever reached in this country and we cannot go deeper," said Fiammetta Cappellini, Haiti-based country representative for the Milan-based AVSI, told Catholic News Service by phone April 14. AVSI, she said, is not joining the national strike due to its ongoing humanitarian work, but Cappellini said the agency supports the spirit of the strike and hopes it brings attention and assistance to Haiti's difficulties, which she said have been in steep decline since 2018. Ironically, the global COVID-19 pandemic has not directly impacted Haiti's populations as feared, but a secondary fallout — unemployment — has further strained the local economies at the worst possible time. Unemployment is rampant, particularly among the young, she said. "We looked at Somalia, Venezuela and we could not have imagined seeing Haiti going down this same road (of instability)," Cappellini said. "The country needs all the international support we can have. Haiti doesn't have the resources to face this situation alone at this point." Fides, news agency of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, reported the church in Haiti is asking Catholic schools, religious schools, universities and other Catholic institutions to observe an interruption of activities April 15. The Haitian bishops' conference asked that church bells ring at noon across Haiti and that Masses are offered for change for the better in the country following the recent kidnapping of five Catholic priests, two nuns and three laypeople. The victims were abducted on their way to a parish near the capital of Port-au-Prince early April 11. Fr. Ludger Mazile, secretary of the Haitian bishops' conference, told Agence France Presse April 12 that the kidnappers had demanded a ransom of $1 million for the group's release. The silence, the prayer, the interruption of activities during the strike is intended to shake up the national conscience and urge the authorities to consider and address urgently the issue of kidnappings, Fides reported. // Advertisement Advertisement Cappellini told CNS that AVSI, a nonprofit organization created in 1972 and guided by Catholic social teaching, currently has 15 international staff and 300 local staff working in both rural, urban and slum programs across the country, and that there is heightened concern about the dangers to agency staff, many of whom are linked to ongoing humanitarian projects in poor sections of Port-au-Prince. "We have ongoing activities that ask us to be there every day; the people are counting on us," Cappellini said. "The dangers are due to the gangsters — large number of gangs in the slums are facing off against each other with no concerns about women and children." "We are concerned about being in the crossfire," she said. Frequent political protests in Port-au-Prince, other regional cities and the rural areas have often shut down transportation, closed businesses and hospitals and forced children to stay home from school, paralyzing the Caribbean nation of 11 million. Haitian Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe resigned April 14 in the wake of crime and social unrest reportedly only after only one year on the job and before a controversial constitutional referendum and frustration with President Jovenel Moïse's management of the crisis. In addition to the recent clergy kidnappings, in mid-April, bandits attacked a Port-au-Prince orphanage, assaulting children and killing a guard. In recent years, protesters, including Catholic leaders, have been calling for an end to corruption and mismanagement and for the removal of Moïse. The ongoing crisis is a response to political and economic dysfunction, but criminal mobs are taking advantage of the situation, Cappellini said. AVSI partners with the local Caritas agencies and Jesuit Refugee Service in promoting food security, human rights, women's and children's programming, immigrant rights, conflict resolution and peacemaking outreach to the gangs. "We are working closely with the church, because the church in Haiti has deep and strong relationships with the people and a capacity to reach every community in the country," she said. "Through them we are able to have our activities arriving to all these communities." "We are seeing the church having a voice in the crisis in Haiti, and we hope it will be heard by the government, although we are not sure they are listening." Capellini added that the international airport in the Haitian capital remains open but that the land border with the Dominican Republic is mostly closed and unsafe. The U.S. State Department is advising against travel to Haiti. Enter your email address to receive free newsletters from NCR. Email address

Sponsor a gargoyle: New fundraiser launched for Notre Dame in Paris (Thu, 15 Apr 2021)
20210415T0930-NOTRE-DAME-SPONSOR-1246046.JPG Flames and smoke billow from Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris April 15, 2019. Two years after the fire destroyed much of the church's wooden structure, a fundraising group is urging people to sponsor a statue or gargoyle to help with reconstruction. (CNS/Reuters/Benoit Tessier) A novel fundraising approach to restore one of the most iconic monuments in the world, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, enables donors to have a piece of history. On April 15, Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris unveiled an interactive website that allows people to donate by adopting or sponsoring pieces of precious art and artifacts that were damaged in a 2019 fire. Donors can engage with the objects of their choosing and select which they'd like to help restore, whether it is a painting or statue. Funds can also go toward the cathedral's restoration as a whole if the person prefers. The organization was established in 2017 to help cover the cost of repairing damages caused by time, pollution and the use of inferior stone used in construction of the 12th-century Gothic landmark. The cathedral had not had any major repairs since the mid-1800s, so the group launched an international campaign to raise the $135 million needed for those essential renovations — augmented by a $45 million budget from the French government. On April 15, 2019, a fire broke out in the attic and completely consumed the timber roof and spire. The burning debris and melted lead from the roof fell on top of a stone vault below. Most sections of the cathedral remained intact due to the rib vaulting, and most of the precious art and religious relics were saved, including what is believed to be Jesus' crown of thorns and a piece of the cross from his crucifixion, the Tunic of St. Louis and the 14th-century Virgin of the Pillar statue. After the fire, the mission of the Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris had an even greater scope — rebuilding from ashes. Since the fire, more than $1 billion from more than 150 countries has been pledged to rebuild the cathedral, said Michel Picaud, president of Friends of Notre-Dame. 20210415T0930-NOTRE-DAME-SPONSOR-1246044.JPG One of the rosette windows of Notre Dame Cathedral is seen April 17, 2019, two days after a fire destroyed much of the church's wooden structure. Two years later, a fundraising group is urging people to sponsor a statue or gargoyle to help with reconstruction. (CNS/Paul Haring) Picaud said the item people feel most sentimental about is probably the Virgin of the Pillar, which "attracts the attention of believers because it is the Virgin Mary in all her beauty and significance." The May paintings are one of the top features of the restoration effort. They are a series of paintings commissioned in the 17th- and early 18th-century by the goldsmith's guild of Paris to offer to the cathedral in the month of May. They are approximately three by four meters high and depict scenes from the Gospels. Smaller models of the paintings also were created. The fundraising process has helped reveal the location of some of those that were not in the cathedral collection. "I was called by an American family that owned the model of the Crucifixion of St. Peter. The family told me they were on the brink of auctioning the painting but they gave it to Notre Dame when they discovered what it was. This is an example of the love for Notre Dame by the American people," Picaud said. The massive project is currently in the safety phase, which should last until the summer of 2022, Picaud said. It includes protecting the vaults from rain with a tarp; lead decontamination; fortifying the north, south and west gables, particularly to protect the three large rose windows; fortifying the most damaged pillars of the nave; reinforcing the flying buttresses; wrapping and protecting the gargoyles and other sculptural elements of the north and south towers; removing burned and melted scaffolding that had previously surrounded the spire. Notre-Dame Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is one of the most recognizable and beloved monuments in the world. More than 12 million people visited every year before the fire. As a result, the outpouring of support has been at a global level and from people of all belief systems — from the envelope Picaud received that contained a $10 bill from a woman in the U.S. Midwest to St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York launching its own fundraising effort. Even while the fire was burning, Picaud was being interviewed by media and he met a Moroccan-born man who was a Muslim. The man described Notre Dame as "our" cathedral. "I think this is the beauty of Notre Dame and the church of the Virgin Mary," Picaud said. He emphasized that the United States has been the source of some of the largest donors. The Friends of Notre-Dame received two donations totaling $10 million from two American foundations, he said. The French government has set a target date to reopen the cathedral to the public in April 2024, but Picaud said there is no way of knowing the exact time this will happen. In the future, the cathedral will have a strong security team in place and new measures to protect against fires, such as sprinklers, that it did not have before, Picaud said. Restoration and rebuilding probably will continue for the next 10 years, Picaud said, and will cost more than $1 billion to complete it.
