CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, the 76-year-old Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, criticized St. Augustine for his “doctrine of the lesser evil, at a time when prostitution was in some way regulated by the State, and this doctrine unfortunately had a great influence on the West and the Church.” The prelate made his remarks as he discussed a two-day Vatican summit of African women judges on human trafficking and organized crime.
