Suddenly, everyone's trying to get a copy of a staid Jesuit journal - all because of an interview with Pope Francis. In it, the pontiff reveals his thinking about a path for the church that combines tradition and reform.
The pope has addressed a global inter-Church conference in Geneva, and called on all denominations to work together. He's keen to close the gap between the 1.3 billion-strong Catholic faithful and other Christians.
Pope Francis has denounced the practice of abortions over birth defects, equating it to Nazi attempts to create a pure race. The remarks come as his home country of Argentina works on a pro-abortion bill.
The motion passed by a narrow margin after two days of contentious debate. The bill has also been hotly debated in the conservative South American country. The measure will now move to the Senate.
Ireland has voted overwhelmingly in favor of abolishing the total abortion ban in its constitution. The result is a triumph for women in Ireland and a victory against populism, says Barbara Wesel.
