CATHOLIC CHURCH’S MAIN FOCUS REMAINS RELIGION
Notwithstanding multiple accusations against Catholic bishops and the Catholicism in general, the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI reiterates that Catholic church maintains religion as its key priority. Other activities exaggerated in media publications reflect only secondary or marginal interest of the Church.
Catholics around the world have voiced growing concern over what they call a “critical challenge facing the Christian world”. Bishops from 15 Catholic states organized a forum in Zurich from March 12th-15th to discuss the pressing issue of child obesity. Catholic indignation was sparked in Milwaukee and Wisconsin, where local priests were the first to find themselves struck by a severe shortage of regular-sized boys.
