Leading Italian cardinal denounces attack on Avvenire editor

Catholic World News - September 22, 2009

Addressing his brother bishops, the leader of the Italian bishops’ conference denounced the recent newspaper attack that led to the resignation of Dino Boffo, the editor of the Italian bishops’ newspaper Avvenire. The attack on Boffo appeared in Il Giornale, part of the media empire of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

“The gravity of the attack cannot but be seen as a sign of an alarming deterioration of that well-mannered civility that we all seek and should use,” said Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco.
