Morning Catholic must-reads: 29/03/11

Archbishop Antonio Mennini, the Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain, will call for an end to fighting in Libya at a diplomatic summit in London today (report in Italian).

The Catholic bishops of North Africa have issued an “urgent appeal” for peace in Libya.

Benedict XVI received Chrysostomos II, Orthodox primate of Cyprus, in private audience yesterday (video).

Fr Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Franciscan Custos of the Holy Land, has said he is alarmed by the “deterioration” in relations between Israelis and Palestinians.

A media company has claimed that the decision to place Fr John Corapi on administrative leave is illicit under Canon Law.

Prison authorities in Arkansas have revoked a priest’s visiting rights after he was discovered with tobacco for a death row inmate.

The BBC’s Robert Pigott reports on an archaeological discovery that some claim could be “more significant than the Dead Sea Scrolls”.

And Paul Badde explains why Benedict XVI chose to visit the shrine at Manoppello as soon as possible after his election to the papacy.

I will be on holiday later this week so the next Morning Catholic must-reads will be on Monday, April 4.
