New Editor for Pope's paper

The Vatican Newpaper’s new editor is hoping to promote an exchange of ideas by including news about Judaism, Islam and other Christian communities around the world.

L'Osservatore Romano incoming editor chief Giovanni Maria Vian has replaced Mario Agnes, who steered the paper for more than two decades.

Pope Benedict received Vian in a private audience, telling him he hoped the newspaper of the Pope would continue to show the "fruitful meeting between faith and reason," the Associated Press reported.

Vian – a church historian and journalist – wrote in his first editorial that in the paper’s international coverage, L'Osservatore would "reserve space for the meeting of ideas, with a cordial opening to the confrontation of reason."

"The newspaper of the Pope will look to inform the world on the Catholic community in different continents, on Christian churches and confessions, Judaism, Islam and other religions," he wrote.
