Msgr. Sanchez Sorondo in Wonderland
The President of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences exalts China as the best implementer of the Churches’ social doctrine. The bishop seems oblivious to the shantytowns of Beijing and Shanghai, the expulsion of migrants, oppression of religious freedom. Appreciation for the Paris Climate Agreement, but silence on the links between wealth, corruption and pollution. An ideological approach that makes a laughing stock of the Church.

Msgr. Sanchez Sorondo: China, the best implementer of the social doctrine of the Church
The chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, back from a trip to Beijing, exalts China as a country where the "common good" is the primary value; where "there are no slums" or drugs, where the environment is respected. Not like the United States of Donald Trump. "Many meeting points" between China and the Vatican.

Former Chinese Minister to speak today at the Vatican on organ trafficking
A Chinese delegation is participating in a summit organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. For a long time and with so many tests, China has been accused of feeding the trafficking of organs harvesting them from the bodies of executed prisoners, even without their permission. From 2015 in China a law admits only voluntary donations, but the figures between donors and transplants do not correspond.
Charity and justice should govern relations among peoples
The Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences debates how to pursue this goal. Focus is on the social doctrine of the Church and ‘Deus Caritas est.’
Transforming globalisation into a "civilisation of the common good"
To reach this goal, a new integration of subsidiarity and solidarity is needed. The topic is under discussion beginning today at the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.
