    ISRAEL – VATICAN

    Agenda change in Israel-Holy See talks



    Jerusalem (AsiaNews) – The Israeli government informed the Holy See at the last moment that its delegation would not take part in today's talks, this according to news agencies reports.  The cancelled meeting between Israeli and Vatican representatives was scheduled to discuss the issue of municipal tax exemptions for the Church.

    AsiaNews sources in Jerusalem confirmed that the two delegations did not meet.

    Tomorrow's scheduled meeting is still expected to take place but without any certainty as to what will be discussed.

    News agencies report that Israel's Ambassador to the Holy See referred to 'contingent factors' to explain the cancellation, stressing however that "the parties will discuss next month" the issues at the centre of the talks". (DS)

    Pope tells young people to remember the past, to have courage in the present and hope for the future



    The Message for the 32nd World Youth Day was issued today centred on “The ‘great things’ that the Almighty accomplished’.” In her meeting with Elizabeth, Mary becomes a model. The pontiff calls on young people to avoid being couch potatoes, safe and cosy, urges them to rediscover the relationship with seniors. The Church experience is not a flash mob. The future should be experienced in a constructive way, and “the institutions of marriage, consecrated life and priestly mission” should not be devalued.
