A former top UK judge has likened efforts to oust expression of religion from the public square to Tudor-era persecutions.

Sir Michael Tegendhat said soaring numbers of lawsuits involving religion pointed to an increasing denial of human rights.

Sir Michael was the UK’s top libel and media judge until he retired last year.

His comments came in a speech at Tyburn Convent, just metres from the site of gallows upon which 105 Catholics were executed between 1535 and 1681.

Palestinian Saints

Vatican City, 18 May 2015 (VIS) - “I am giving you a mission: pray to the two new saints for peace in your land, so that there may be an end to this interminable war, and to bring peace among peoples,” said Pope Francis this morning as he received in audience the Carmelite Sisters of Bethlehem and the Middle East and the Sisters of the Rosary, in Rome to attend the canonisation of Mary of Jesus Crucified and Marie-Alphonsine Danil Ghattas.
