'Fertility Tourism'

The price of life

The lack of eggs in the UK has led to more and more couples taking desperate measures: "A lot of people are being literally turned into fertility tourists," Lockwood says. "For a woman of 42, given the choice between a three-year wait for a home-grown egg or being able to hop over to Spain to a clinic that offers excellent care, where they speak English, there is no waiting list and the cost is not much greater than in the UK ... Well, it's not a particularly difficult decision."

Spanish bishop chides clergy: dress like priests and stop communal confessions

Ok...this is refreshing!

In a letter sent to all the priests of his diocese, Bishop Demetrio Fernandez of Tarazona exhorted the clergy to foster “the Sacrament of Penance or Confession with the individual confession of sins” and to dress like priests in response to the attempt by many to erase “every one of God’s footprints from the society in which we live.”

He told priests to “never impart collective absolution. Let us teach young people and children to approach this sacrament frequently,” which he said is a precious resource for personal formation and “for educating consciences in the commandments of God and of his Church.”

“In each parish there should be specific times throughout the year (not only during Lent and Easter) when the priest is available to hear confessions,” he added.
