In the statement – already endorsed by the Bishops’ Conference of the Catholic Church of Scotland – the two churches repent for “the hurt and harm that our ancestors have done to each other in the past” and ask forgiveness from each other. other.

And they say, “We reaffirm that what we have in common is often greater than what divides us. While recognizing that unity does not mean uniformity, we pledge to continue our pilgrimage towards greater unity.

The Reverend Sandy Horsburgh, chair of Kirk’s ecumenical relations committee, told the Assembly“Friendship is a very deep relationship, a relationship of conscious and deliberate choice, in which individuality is respected and there is room for disagreement, but a relationship in which we stand side by side.

“We regret that our two churches have not always been friends, we recognize our need for repentance and forgiveness for the hurts and wrongs we have caused each other. In making the Declaration of Friendship, we put these things behind us decisively and deliberately Declare to us the truth that we share in the one faith.

“By saying loud and clear that the Church of Scotland and the Catholic Church of Scotland are friends, we are helping to change not only the narrative of our churches, but also the narrative of our country. There is no back to back.”

And attending the Assembly to represent the Catholic Church in Scotland, Archbishop Leo Cushley, Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, said: “We all know the history we share. It contains some dark pages and much to regret. It would also be naïve to wish for everything, but I believe that is all the more reason for us to do something about it.

“The statement is also a consciously new approach to ecumenism, an attempt to re-imagine the path to Christian unity. Instead of listing our problems and points of friction or grievance, old or new, the statement chooses to focus on what we have in common, and to emphasize that we cherish and hold, together, so many things that are inspiring, ancient and profound.

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis on Sunday expressed his spiritual closeness to Catholics in China, expressing hope that the church there would operate in “freedom and tranquility”, but making no mention of a 90-year-old cardinal recently arrested in Hong Kong.

Addressing the public gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Pontiff’s traditional Sunday remarks, Francis noted that the church celebrates ‘Blessed Mother Mary, Help of Christians’ on May 24, and recalled that Mary is the patron saint of Catholics in China. .

“The joyful circumstance offers me the opportunity to renew to them the assurance of my spiritual closeness,” the pontiff said. He added that “I follow with attention and participation the life and affairs of the faithful and pastors, often complex, and I pray for them every day.”

Cardinal Joseph Zen was arrested on May 11 along with at least three others on suspicion of colluding with foreign forces to endanger China’s national security. He was released later that night.

Zen was scathing in his criticism of China and lambasted the Vatican’s 2018 deal with China on the appointment of bishops in that country. He called the deal, which is up for renewal this year, a sellout of Christians who worship in underground congregations in China to avoid harassment by Communist regime authorities.

In his address, Francis invited the faithful present in the square to join him in prayer, “so that the Church in China, in freedom and tranquility, may live in effective communion with the universal Church and may exercise its mission of announcing the Gospel to all, thus making a positive contribution to the spiritual and material progress of society.”

The Vatican-China deal aims to reduce tensions over China’s insistence on influence over the appointment of bishops, which the Vatican says is the prerogative of pontiffs.

The Vatican has argued that the agreement prevents an even deeper schism in the Chinese church after Beijing has in the past appointed bishops without the pope’s consent. The agreement regularized the status of seven of these “illegitimate” bishops and brought them into full communion with the pope.

The arrests, including Zen’s, in Hong Kong have extended a sweeping crackdown on all forms of dissent, penetrating deeper into the city’s long-standing economic, religious and educational institutions.

The Vatican said it learned of Zen’s arrests with “concern” and is following “the situation with extreme attention.”

Immaculata Church, nestled in the heartland of the United States, is undergoing a $40 million restoration funded by local and international donors. Since the official start of earthworks on May 31, 2020, the project has made leaps and bounds with the beautification of the old church whose roots date back to its original establishment in 1848.

27 News has reached out to Rector Father Patrick Rutledge of the Society of St. Pius X about recent work team progress and exciting new dates coming later this year that you’ll want to put on your calendar.

Rutledge said nearly all of the masonry work for the exterior of the church has now been completed, including the front facade. The majority of the brick work will be completed this week when the steeples come together.

Artists have also started painting some of the interior ceilings with blue colors that will serve as the background for liturgical artwork. Arches and structural columns also began to be added to the interior, all in granite.

“There’s still a lot going on behind the scenes,” Rutledge said. “Since December we have completed the designs behind the altar and have continued to progress with the statue makers. One of the statues is fully finished and is in marble. The most iconic statue of Our Lady, which will go at the top of the dome, will arrive later this year in December and will be gilded with 24 carat gold.

Below are photos of the progress being made outside the Immaculata.

Rutledge also referred to the addition of five large bells which were cast on December 16, 2021 by the Paccard foundry in France. The bells, one of which is over five feet wide, will arrive later this year on September 10. They will be consecrated in a special ceremony.

The bells will be placed at ground level in front of the Immaculata where they will be anointed with sacred chrism oils and given the names of saints. Sponsors will also be named for each of the bells from Foundry Guild members who are the second highest level of donation for the $100,000 project. These sponsors will have the privilege of ringing the bells for the first time on the day of the ceremony.

Rutledge spoke about the progress made so far.

“To see it rise so quickly is truly amazing,” Rutledge said. “It’s something our project team has dreamed of for years, and our parish members have dreamed of for forty years. It burned down many years ago. We are all trying to reach the finish line here and we all want a beautiful and sacred place for liturgy.

The Immaculata suffered extensive damage in 1978 when a fire ravaged it during renovations. The church then took another hit in 1980 when storms toppled the standing walls causing greater damage.

Below you can see computer renders of what the finished interior will look like.

Regarding the completion date, Rutledge said it should be in March 2023. He is hesitant to set an exact date due to the uncertainties that may arise during 2022 and the fact that the project is at 3, $5 million. meet its renovation costs.

“We now have donations from over 24 countries,” Rutledge said. “I don’t want to assume the generosity of others, but we’re pretty confident we can get to the finish line.”

Spanish Catholic Church’s internal child abuse investigation ‘of little use,’ says prosecutor | world news https://garibaldirosario.org/spanish-catholic-churchs-internal-child-abuse-investigation-of-little-use-says-prosecutor-world-news/ Thu, 19 May 2022 15:41:00 +0000 https://garibaldirosario.org/spanish-catholic-churchs-internal-child-abuse-investigation-of-little-use-says-prosecutor-world-news/ MADRID (Reuters) – An internal investigation by Spain’s Catholic Church into allegations of child sexual abuse by clergy is “partial” and “of little help”, Spain’s national prosecutor’s office wrote. in a letter to the country’s mediator made available to Reuters.

MADRID (Reuters) – An internal investigation by Spain’s Catholic Church into allegations of child sexual abuse by clergy is “partial” and “of little help”, Spain’s national prosecutor’s office wrote. in a letter to the country’s mediator made available to Reuters.

The Spanish Catholic Church launched investigations at the diocesan level in January after Spanish newspaper El Pais reported in December more than 1,200 cases of alleged abuse between 1943 and 2018.

The revelations came years after sex abuse scandals rocked the Church in countries including the United States, Ireland and France.

In February, the Church said a private law firm, Cremades & Calvo-Sotelo, would oversee and audit its investigations, a decision described as a “smokescreen” by a victims’ association.

The Spanish Bishops’ Conference declined to comment on the prosecutor’s letter when contacted by Reuters.

Political cartoons about world leaders

Cremades & Calvo-Sotelo did not immediately respond to a phone and email request for comment on the letter.

Spanish prosecutors said in February they were investigating 68 cases of alleged sexual abuse of minors by Catholic church personnel in 17 regions, and the country’s ombudsman has also been tasked with leading an investigation by Spanish lawmakers. in March of this year.

“Audits or partial investigations contracted by the Church to private law firms, where victims lack a safe space to recount their experiences and are asked to fill out a form that designates them as ‘affected’, should be discarded and considered insignificant to use,” reads the letter from the prosecutor’s office to the ombudsman, first reported by El Pais.

Spain’s prosecutor’s office said commissions investigating child abuse cases should be independent and that it was essential that national prosecutors participate in the investigation.

He also called for other initiatives to help shed light on the cases and for “non-judicial mechanisms” to listen to victims and help them heal.

The Spanish Catholic Church said in early 2022 that it was deeply saddened by the abuses and would work with authorities and provide transparency, help and redress to victims.

The head of the law firm, Javier Cremades, said in February that the Church must thoroughly investigate the alleged abuses and that his firm was providing a service to both victims and society.

New book based on interviews with Archbishop Victorinus Yoon Kong-hi sheds new light on North Korean Church

Posted: May 17, 2022 10:21 GMT

Updated: May 17, 2022 12:02 GMT

One of South Korea’s top clerics says he believes the Catholic Church in communist North Korea is growing even though Catholics live in hiding and face persecution.

Archbishop Victorinus Yoon Kong-hi, former head of South Korea’s Gwangju Archdiocese, made the remarks in a recently published book on North Korean church history.

The History of the North Korean Church is a comprehensive Korean-language book on the history of the Catholic Church in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula, based on eight interviews with the 98-year-old Archbishop conducted in the past year.

Writer Kwon Eun-jung wrote the book sponsored by the “Catholic Oral History Records for Peace on the Korean Peninsula” project of the Catholic Institute for Peace in Northeast Asia, an organization under the Catholic Diocese of Uijeongbu, Korean news portal chosun.com reported. May 13.

In the book, the elderly churchman, born in an area now covered by North Korea, gave vivid testimonies of how the church flourished in the territory before the Korean peninsula was divided between the Democratic South and Communist North, and the eruption of the deadly Korean War.

The Archbishop recalled how Catholic clergy, religious and lay people were seized with fear as communist forces attacked churches at the start of the war in 1949.

On May 9, 1949, at midnight, an unexpected emergency bell sounded at the Benedictine monastery and seminary in Tokwon, near Wonsan, South Hamgyong Province. The chief abbot of German origin, Mgr Boniface Sauer, was trained by the Communists, recalled the archbishop, then a student at the seminary.

These were the abbot’s last words to the students before he was led away: “As the Lord has called him, and as the Lord has done, we must go to death with countless martyrs. Now I ask you to take this place without me. Go home and rest in peace. Let’s meet in paradise.”

The abbot was then martyred in a North Korean prison. Fellow monks identified him by his long white beard among dozens of bodies and buried him in a cemetery.

Four days after the raid, the Communists expelled 26 monks from the monastery and 73 seminarians. They left without any sacred objects, including robes, rosaries and even a book.

The monastery and the seminary closed due to the war and the persecution of Christians. Before closing, the seminary trained about sixty priests from 1933 to 1948.

Unconfirmed media reports suggest the structures still exist today.

The prelate’s testimonies indicate that the Catholic Church in North Korea was vibrant before Korea’s split in two and the war that followed.

Missionaries distributed medicine to the poor who needed medical attention, established schools and carried out other charities to support local Catholics, who were poor but very enthusiastic, he said.

Tokwon Monastery and Seminary, both established by German Benedictines, had a free atmosphere for religious and seminary students, he said, adding that Bishop Daniel Tji Hak Soun (1921-1993), a former bishop of the diocese of Wonju, and Bishop Angelo Kim Namsu (1922-2002), former bishop of the diocese of Suwon, were students at the seminary of Tokwon.

The end of World War II in 1945 saw Japan leave Korea after decades of colonization. On Liberation Day, people wanted to ring the bells to express their joy, but many did not.

“I don’t remember hearing the bell announcing the joy of liberation that day. It was because at the end of the war, the Japanese imperialists took away all the metal,” Bishop Yoon recalled, then student of philosophy at the seminary.

However, the joy of liberation was short-lived as the communists took control of North Korea and confiscated all church property before unleashing a reign of systematic persecution.

Archbishop Yoon said that together with Bishop Daniel Tji Hak Soun, he made a dangerous flight from north to south and reached Seoul on January 17, 1950, where they bought chocolate and milk.

“We felt the air of freedom,” he recalls.

After moving to the South, Bishop Yoon said, he traveled to North Korea to visit his entire family. Like him, Bishop Tji Hak also visited his brother and sister during a meeting in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang in 1985.

Archbishop Yoon was born in 1924 to a Catholic family in Jinnampo of Hwanghae, now part of North Korea. He entered Tokwon Theological Seminary with the intention of becoming a priest one day.

Yoon graduated from Songsin College (Major Seminary) in Seoul. His education was disrupted by the war and he graduated in 1950. He was ordained a priest on March 20, 1950.

In January 1951, he was appointed chaplain of the United Nations concentration camp for war refugees in Busan.

Father Yoon studied sacred theology in Rome at the Pontifical Urbaniana University and the Pontifical Gregorian University from 1957 to 1960.

In 1963, he became the first bishop of the Diocese of Suwon. He was appointed Archbishop of Gwangju in 1973 and served until 2000. He also served as President of Gwangju Catholic University from 1973 to 2010.

He was president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Korea (CBCK) from 1975 to 1981.

The nonagenarian Archbishop said the publication of the book had fulfilled his long-held dream.

He says he can’t do anything for the North Korean Church except pray for peace.

“I can’t do anything but rely on the providence of God,” he said.

He believes that “the Church is growing underground, just like the trees in Tokwon Seminary.”

“Trees sprout new shoots in every branch every year. That way, the Catholics hiding somewhere in the North also grow up,” he said.

Saint Cloud

I’ve been thinking a lot about the news that the Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade. I have sought common ground between opposing sides on this issue. I don’t think there are. What I see is that a minority imposes its religious beliefs – in a very important way – on a majority that does not agree with it.

Polls on this question fluctuate somewhat depending on the specific question asked, but a strong majority – 70% in a recent poll [abcnewsgo, 5.3.2022] — say that the decision of whether or not a woman can have an abortion should be left to the woman and her doctor.

I’m surprised how many people don’t realize that Roe v. Wade was written by a lifelong Republican judge, Harry Blackmun (a Minnesotan), and voted for by five Republicans and two Democrats appointees. At the time, many Republicans believed government should — as much as possible — stay out of people’s lives.

I regularly attended the Catholic Church for over 20 years of my adult life. I realized that many Catholics go to church because of what they were taught when they were young. And, for example, many Catholics use various forms of birth control not approved by the church. The annulment of Roe v. Wade should be a wake-up call to all those Catholics choosing which parts of Catholic dogma they wish to follow. Your freedom of choice disappears.

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge Ellen L. Hollander sentenced Fernando Cristancho, 65, of Bel Air, Maryland, to 22 years in federal prison, followed by life probation, for coercion and incitement of a minor whom he met through the church to engage in illegal sexual activity. Cristancho also admitted to producing nude images of four other underage victims. Judge Hollander also ordered that upon his release from prison, Cristancho must register as a sex offender in the places where he resides, where he is employed and where he is a student, under the Registration and Sex Offender Notification (SORNA) .

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron; Acting Special Agent in Charge Selwyn Smith of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Baltimore; Col. Woodrow W. Jones III, Superintendent of Maryland State Police; Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler; and Harford County State’s Attorney Albert Peisinger, Jr.

“Cristancho is finally being held accountable for his horrific crimes. May this sentence serve as a deterrent to anyone who seeks to sexually abuse children, especially those in positions of trust intended to be a place of safety and refuge for children. said United States Attorney for the District of Maryland, Erek L. Barron. “The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland will prosecute and relentlessly prosecute predators who exploit the trust of children and families.”

According to his guilty plea, Cristancho was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in Colombia, South America, in 1985 and moved to Alexandria, Virginia, where he worked as an assistant priest. Around 1999, Cristancho obtained faculties to work as a priest in the Archdiocese of Baltimore and worked as a priest in Baltimore County and at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Harford County. In 2002, the Archdiocese of Baltimore revoked Cristancho’s faculties to work as a priest in the archdiocese.

As stated in his plea agreement, John Doe was 11, 12 and 13 at the time of the offenses against him. John Doe’s family were members of St. Ignatius. Shortly after Cristancho arrived at St. Ignatius in 1999, he began spending time with John Doe’s family outside of church, including meals at the restaurant and at the family home, and during family reunions. John Doe also became a lector at church, with Cristancho working with him and coaching him in the process.

Starting when John Doe was 11, Cristancho asked John Doe for back massages; offered alcohol to John Doe; took John Doe to dinner, kissed John Doe, told John Does he loved him; and acted as if they were in a romantic relationship. Cristancho also showed John Doe pornography and suggested they do the same sexual activities.

After Cristancho no longer worked at the church, he arranged to hold church services at the home of a parishioner, with John Doe acting as lector or altar server. Also, in the summer of 2002, Cristancho invited himself to attend John Doe’s family camping trip and arranged to sleep next to John Doe in a tent. After the camping trip, Cristancho arranged for John Doe to help him around Cristancho’s house, including with his small children. Eventually, Cristancho arranged for John Doe to spend the weekends at Cristancho’s house, which John Doe did regularly until 2003. It was during these weekends that Cristancho sexually abused John Doe. Cristancho sexually abused John Doe from 2002 until at least the fall of 2003.

In September 2017, Cristancho visited a retail pharmacy to use the store’s photo printing equipment. When a store employee assisted Cristancho, they observed several photos of naked children and an image of what appeared to be a bite mark on a young boy’s buttocks on Cristancho’s smartphone. The employee then made a report.

Law enforcement opened an investigation and a search warrant was executed at Cristancho’s home on September 19, 2017. During the search warrant, investigators seized various digital devices, including a smartphone. A subsequent forensic examination of the phone resulted in the discovery of nude photos and videos of four other underage victims, with most of the images recorded when the victims were under the age of five.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood brings together federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit child sexual abuse, and to identify and rescue victims. For more information on the Safe Childhood Project, please visit www.justice.gov/psc.

United States Attorney Erek L. Barron commended HSI, the Maryland State Police, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, and the Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation and prosecution and thanked the Harford County Child Advocacy Center for their assistance. Barron thanked Assistant U.S. Attorneys Paul E. Budlow and Colleen E. McGuinn, who prosecuted the federal case.

A Catholic church in Langford is bucking the trend of shrinking congregations with growth so strong it is building and moving to a new building three times the size of its current church and community hall .

Our Lady of the Rosary Parish has occupied its current location on Goldstream Avenue for nearly 70 years, but Father Dean Henderson said it had been known for at least 25 of those years that a larger space was needed.

“The church is really full at around 225 people. Before COVID, we used to get masses of 350 people at times – just crammed in like sardines,” Henderson said of the current location. growth, by many young families, by many children, by general need for space for worship.

The pastor said there had been intermittent efforts to move to a new location dating back almost to the founding of the parish, but they all stalled and were eventually completely abandoned. This time, however, everything goes according to plan.

A seven-acre property on Irwin Road has been secured and plans for the new building are being finalized. The new building will include a 350-person capacity community hall attached to a 600-person church sanctuary that can be expanded up to 750 people when needed.

It will also include numerous office spaces and a 30-place daycare centre. Henderson said the building is also designed to accommodate a potential K-4 Catholic school further down the road.

“There will be a lot of capacity to accommodate people. There is great hope that we will be able to increase the number of ministries and programs that we manage,” he said.

The larger space is needed because despite the fact that many other parishes across the country are seeing their congregations dwindle to the point that some churches across Canada are closing completely, the Henderson congregation is growing rapidly and has been for many years.

It’s a trend he attributes to the rapid growth the West Bank is experiencing, significant immigration from predominantly Catholic countries like the Philippines and those in Latin America, and the parish’s efforts to be a community that people want to be part of. .

The parish is currently due to vacate its current location by October 2023 after Royal Roads University purchased the property earlier this year, and the hope is that the community hall section of the new building will be ready around the same time, allowing the congregation to change location. transparently.

The sanctuary section in the new building should be ready a few months later, allowing the congregation to move into their permanent home.
