The Vatican has confirmed that Pope Benedict XVI is no longer an organ donor because his body, along with his soul, belongs to the church. - UPI

The Catholic News Agency, CNA, Sunday said the confirmation came from Archbishop Zygmunt Zimowski, who is considered the Vatican's health minister, who told Italy's La Repubblica the pope's body must remain intact because it "belongs to and for the church."
CNA said a Feb. 5 letter from Benedict's secretary to a German doctor explained that while the pontiff had indeed held an organ donor card since the 1970s, his donor status expired when he became pope.

Pope John Paul II blessed in Rome on 01 May 2011

In our newspaper I read to-day that the King and the Queen of the Belgians will to to Rome for Pope John Paul Ii and Philippe and Mathilde to London for the wedding.
Prince Charles and Camilla's wedding was on friday 8 April and was reported the day after because of Pope John Paul II 's funerals in Rome .
I suppose that the Catholic Monarchs such as The King and the Queen of Spain,
Grand Duke Henri and his wife , Prince Albert II of Monaco and his fiancee and the Princes of Liechtenstein will do the same

The beatification will take place on 1 May, not 29 April.

A mistake of our newspaper
Could someone of the moderator team correct the title of the thread ?
Sorry about that - Maria-Olvia

Apparently some in Belgium think that the royals and the prime minister should stay away all together due to the lack of response of the Vatican towards the confessions of former bisshop Vangheluwe that he sexually abused two of his nephews and thought nothing wrong of it (and still does not). Today it is reported that another supposed victim of Vangheluwe commited suicide later in his life.
The bishoprics in Belgium reportedly can not cope with the number of people who want to end their membership of the church. And a clear signal of the Vatican has not been sent yet, though prime minister Leterme expects one very soon.

Marengo ,
The King and the Queen of the Belgians are going as Catholic Monarchs on May 1st .
This has nothing to do with the sad Van G. affair.

Do you know that for the "droit canon" it is impossible to dismiss a Bisschop. They are waiting which solution Rome will find and only at that time Monseigneur Leonard will speak to the press.
The King of the Belgians is not Head of the Church
What difficult days for Belgium...

The King and Queen are both devout Catholics, who met and admired the late John Paul II.

The situation with the Church in Belgium is appalling and tragic, but I disagree that the correct response is to snub the beatification ceremonies for the late pontiff who was loved and admired by many for his saintly and heroic life.

On a personal level, I think any cleric guilty of this type of abuse should be treated like any common criminal and prosecuted to the strictest extent of the law. This Vangheluwe should be defrocked pronto and maybe even sent to prison...I have read about him and he sickens me.

And I say this as a committed Catholic myself.

Moonmaiden , I think in Rome they need your help !
What about snubbing the beatification as our Monarchs will be in the assistance and I presume our Queen in white ?

I don't think Their Majesties should interfere in the situation publically at all. I DO think the other Belgian bishops should urgently press the Holy See to deal with this crisis as soon as possible...before the Church becomes even more weakened and demoralized than it is already.

I think the Pope wants to wait until after the beatification to keep the focus on some much needed positive news for a change...hopefully he will address the matter of the disgusting pedophile bishop immediately after.

What a sad, sordid mess..my sympathies and prayers to all of Belgium.
