Marcus Aurelius

I always liked his thoughts, here's another quotation:


"You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength."

Vatican to reveal scale of Nazi-era co-operation

The Vatican will open its secret archives on Pius XII, the war-time pope accused by some of keeping quiet about the Holocaust. Saying the Catholic Church “has no fear of history”, the Pope told staff at the Vatican Secret Archives that documents about Pius XII, who was pope from 1939 to 1958, would be available to researchers from March 2 next year.

After several days of confusion over whether Pope Francis called Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas an “angel of peace” during a meeting Saturday, two news agencies that reported the quote clarified Tuesday that the pontiff cryptically said: “you are a bit an angel of peace.”

At the same time, a Vatican spokesman told Reuters that the comment was not intended “to offend anyone.”

The issue over what the pope said had aroused controversy among some critics who saw the remark as an undeserved vote of confidence for the Palestinian Authority president, while others questioned what exactly the pope had said.

News agencies AP, AFP and Reuters all originally reported that during a May 16 between Abbas and the pope, Pope Francis called the Palestinian leader “an angel of peace.”

Vatican: Pope’s ‘angel’ comment to Abbas not meant to offend.
