Condoms, Condoms, and Condoms

 This event is really not attracting much attention by the main stream media either in America or Europe.

It seems that all the press heard was the Pope’s statement about condoms on Pope Benedict’s trip to Africa. Such a shame! As John Allen pointed out in a recent column, this is a very important event, and it would be nice to have a better feel for the people, the event, and the African Church. Guess that is asking too much from a press that is only interested in controversy and headlines. Here is one of the few videos I could find on the web that at least allows one a feel for an African Liturgy. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7952754.stm

John Allen’s Report from Cameroon: African Catholics Can Transform Society

I did find a few pictures on the web, as well, but not very many. Here are some of the better ones:
