Pope Francis has been awarded the European Charlemagne Prize for 2016 in recognition of his efforts at global peace and cross-cultural understanding, making him only the second pontiff to receive the prestigious annual honor given by the German city of Aachen.

Awarding of the prize was announced at mid-day Wednesday in Germany and confirmed at the Vatican by spokesman Jesuit Fr. Federico Lombardi, who told reporters that Francis had decided to accept the honor as an encouragement to those working for peace around the globe.

In their lengthy citation for choosing the pope as this year’s honoree — available online in German— the prize committee quotes from the pontiff’s address to the European parliament during his one-day visit to their headquarters in Strasbourg, France in November 2014.

They cite the final section of the address, in which Francis calls on the parliamentarians to “abandon the idea of a Europe which is fearful and self-absorbed, in order to revive and encourage a Europe of leadership, a repository of science, art, music, human values and faith.”

That address, the prize committee states, shows the pope’s appreciation and work for the ideals of Europe’s founders and for the great potential of the continent.

The Charlemagne Prize has been given since 1950 by Aachen — where the famed Christian ruler lived and is buried — to honor “the most valuable contribution in the services of Western European understanding and work for the community.”

Among other recipients of the award have been former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill in 1956; King Juan Carlos I of Spain in 1982; and Americans George Marshall, Henry Kissinger, and Bill Clinton in 1959, 1987, and 2000, respectively.

Pope John Paul II received the award in 2004 as an “extraordinary prize” in addition to Irish politician Pat Cox.

    NOW you know why they push diversity into established white colonies in Europe and other places. . . but with the recent extreme ‘diversity’ you are beginning to see ‘tails being chewed’ off in sweden/norway/denmark/germany etc and as we can see in australia – the new mice demand some kind of special food pellets.. or the banning of some existing food pellets for the white mice.

    Nature takes care of itself and doesn’t need any help from parasitic opportunists of the upper class, in fact, in healing parasitic infections is really a two-stage process of 1) reducing the parasite load, and 2) completely eliminating all the parasites.

    The average people of the world who have been infected by these one percenter parasites, trying to mold their lives into utopian villages, should begin treatment asap.

  4. These guys were for peace – the millions of deaths were unavoidable “collateral” damage .

    Africans and Aboriginals brawl in Australia
    A TEENAGER whose family moved to Perth to escape violence in Sudan is fighting for his life in hospital after he was attacked during a wild brawl sparked by gatecrashers at a 16th birthday party.

    Residents said Hainsworth Ave in Girrawheen became a “war zone” as a mob of up to 300 young people clashed after a house party about 11.20pm on Friday.

    Some were armed with poles and baseball bats and at one point a car was driven into a group of revellers.

    Police, including the dog squad and reg­ional operations group officers, arrived to find 17-year-old Ballajura Community College student Kuol Akut unconscious with severe head injuries from a savage beating.

    Witnesses reportedly said Kuol was crawling on all fours in an attempt to escape his attackers, but the group kept beating him for at least 20 minutes.

    He is in a critical condition on life support in Royal Perth Hospital with his father James Akut and uncle Bol Mayen by his bedside.

    The teenager’s sister Achol Akut, 19, said the family moved to Perth from war-torn Sudan 13 years ago to start a better life. Kuol planned to study engineering after high school.

    Ms Akut said the family had no idea how the brawl unfolded and she begged anyone with information on the attack to contact police.

  7. Pope Francis has indicated that the Catholic church is prepared to condone artificial contraception to avoid pregnancy in response to the Zika virus, believed to be spread primarily by mosquitoes (though also possibly by sexual contact).

    Why is “permission” being granted to safeguard against one virus, Zika, but not against HIV and Aids? While Zika is horrific, how many lives has Aids claimed and ruined, including babies who are born HIV-positive? A disgrace, then, that, in all these decades, the issue has been persistently dodged by the Vatican.
