Vatican analyst examines reactions to Cardinal Martini’s statements on condom use

.- In an article entitled, the “Day After Carlo Maria Martini”, set for publication in English on Friday, Italian journalist Sandro Magister of “L’Espresso” analyzes the reactions to the controversial statements by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini regarding the morality of condom use.

Magister’s article will include both public statements as well as reactions from inside the Italian Bishops’ Conference to the proposals of the former Archbishop of Milan who, among other things, told “L’Espresso” that life does not begin at the moment of conception; an issue considered “non-negotiable” by the Catholic Church in terms of its defense of human life.

Magister will also include reactions by sociologist and former member of the Socialist Party, Paolo Sorbi, who is now head of the Pro-life movement of the Archdiocese of Milan, and Bishop Dante Lafranconi, who heads up the Italian bishops’ Committee on Family and Life.

The article will be available on Friday at: www.chiesa.espressonline.it/index.jsp?eng=y
