Preview: Sr. Rose Pacatte to present award at annual Razzie ceremony

 | 

Movie critic Sr. Rose Pacatte covered her first red carpet event in January, scoring a spot in the media scrum at the Los Angeles premiere of Kevin Costner's new movie, "Black or White."

Watching the parade of stars and agents and handlers pass her by, she wondered if anyone would stop and talk to her.

"Who expects to see a nun there?" she figured.

Decade after assassination of Sr. Dorothy Stang, work remains risky

 | 

In the 10 years since U.S.-born Sr. Dorothy Stang was killed by ranchers in the Amazon, the risks have not decreased, said one of the coordinators of the Brazilian bishops' Pastoral Land Commission.

Antonio Canuto, one of the commission's coordinators, said although the 73-year-old nun's assassination in Anapu brought awareness of the plight of the peasants with whom she worked, this has not been enough to decrease impunity in the region.

"The reality continues the same as it was when Sister Dorothy was alive," Canuto said.
