Church 'has key role at UN'

THE CHURCH'S role at the United Nations is not to offer "technical solutions or remedies" to world problems but to show the international community how God lifts up the whole world, Vatican's new UN ambassador has said.

Archbishop Celestino Migliore was celebrant and preacher at a Mass on February 23 at Holy Family Church, whose parish bounds include the UN headquarters, "By her presence among the nations, the church wants to share with the peoples of the world this treasure, this lever outside the world which enables her to lift it up," he said.

The archbishop said he was "proud to be in a way part also of this local community since we spend most of our time at the UN headquarters".
