Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Deacon James Stagg says: Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Martinsville, VA [Church of Ireland Gazette] The Roman Catholic co-chair of the Third Anglican/Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC III) has expressed his personal view that, seeing how in 1993 certain relaxations were made in the Vatican’s rules on eucharistic sharing, further relaxation is possible.Speaking last week to the Gazette editor following a joint session of the National Advisers’ Committee on Ecumenism of the Irish (Roman Catholic) Episcopal Conference and representatives of the Church of Ireland’s Commission for Christian Unity and Dialogue, at St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth, the Most Rev. Bernard Longley — Roman Catholic Archbishop of Birmingham and ARCIC III co-chair — referred to the changes in “specified circumstances” set out in the 1993 Ecumenism Directory.He commented, “Given that that represents a change, and a very significant shift away from the impossibility to the limited possibility, then I could imagine and foresee one of the fruits of our ecumenical engagement as moving towards a deeper understanding of communion and a deeper sharing, a deeper communion between our churches which perhaps would lead to reconsideration of some of the circumstances.”Asked if he felt healing on the issue would indeed come, the archbishop said, “I know that that will be the case,” and described the “pain” of division at the Eucharist as “a spur” towards resolving the issue.However, he also pointed to how, over the past several decades, “further challenges — obstacles, if you like — in the way of that have been placed before us and they also have their part to play in what holds us back from sharing the Eucharist together.” He instanced differences over the recognition of clerical orders.Affirming that a further relaxation in the Vatican’s regulations “could happen,” the archbishop added, however, that he “wouldn’t like to predict the rate or the pace of change towards that.”Longley said that the coming together of members within ARCIC III was itself “an experience of communion”, adding, “Because of the balance, I think, of pastors, church leaders and theologians in their various fields, there is a real respect for the gifts of each other and there has been a real sense in which we’ve been able to exchange those gifts and receive from one another.”To hear Archbishop Longley being inteviewed by the editor, visit www.gazette.ireland.anglican.org/audio (Inteview 46) Teresa Janelle says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Director of Music Morristown, NJ October 8, 2013 at 6:33 pm Small steps are wonderful for children; but sooner or later one has to grow up and realize that the leaders are way behind the faithful who are the church and the people of God. The “laity” have no problem with women priests, married clergy, nor receiving communion in one anther’s churches. What are the church leaders afraid of? October 22, 2013 at 10:41 pm A Roman Catholic bishop now deceased said that “communion” is something people from different religious backgrounds in ministry (beyond ecumenical Lenten fish-frys) experience of God each day. That’s Christ’s Real presence. I agree. He was not side-stepping real differences either. He was saying that how we live together can lead to how we trust and believe together which can lead to sharing Eucharist. That sounds more natural to me and I think lay people because of circumstances may move or have already moved past or through belief together because of trusting one another and share communion in each other churches at times. Denominations for a larger or more global witness of communion may need to agree about beliefs/doctrines first, then experience joint ministries, then enter into formal communion with each other and celebrate that together.

But they are not identical and one is closer to the original Greek and the orthodox version than the other. In fact, the other was a deliberate mistranslation, although those who put it into the BCP may have been unaware of that. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books October 8, 2013 at 11:08 am What ever happened to the belief that “Christ our passover was sacrificed for us” ? and that “Christ died to sin once, for all”, not just “for the politically correct”! The Episcopal teaching and belief is that of a RREAL PRESENCE in the Eucharist. The differences between the two Churches is political not sacramental. Just as Pope francis has said he does not believe in a “Catholic God”; then how could the “real presence” of the true Christ in the Eucharist be limited only to those who agree with the politicians of Rome?

In the current BCP, it states “as established by…1801.” This was particularly true as the Book of Common Prayer used in the American Church was taken from the Anglican Church of Scotland. That is one reason why the Articles of Religion are relegated to the back of the Prayer Book along with the other “Historical Documents of the Church” (pg. 867). This is one reason why the “Articles” had not been used as Canon for the Church, but as historical reference. I have had many disagree with me, but in talking with some Episcopal Church Historians, I was assured that this was the case. I think how Martin Luther’s 1st Mass affected him when, at the Breaking of Bread, he anticipated that the Sacred Host would indeed bleed in his hands. I believe that the Blessed Sacrament (the consecrated bread & wine), is a sign, symbol & reality of Christ’s Real Presence among us both individually and as the Body of Christ, the Church. Also the Blessed Sacrament should be seen as the “Way” towards reunion and reconciliation among our Churches rather than a end to the means. My understanding is that all Roman Catholics can only receive the Sacrament if they believe in all that the Roman Church teaches, as well as going to Confession before they receive. In both reality and practice, I’m quite sure that there are those who do go to Holy Communion, who do not either subscribe to all the Faith of the Church, haven’t made their Sacramental Confession and yet week after week wait in line to make their Holy Communion. Since “all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God,” I suggest that Holy Communion should be seen a Sacrament of healing & strength for all who are baptized, who believe and who, with “fear & trembling” approach the Blessed Sacrament with wonder, awe and in anticipation that we are part of those Jewish disciples who, over 2000 years ago, reclined to eat & drink this new Sacred Mystery for the Remission of Sins…and they weren’t all on the same page or were even baptized, yet they received. We, whether Anglican or Roman, are inheritors of both the Kingdom of God and of Christ’s Real Presence in His Holy Communion. Jay Woods says: Wayne Skoblik says: Rector Bath, NC Rector Belleville, IL Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Seamus P Doyle says: October 9, 2013 at 2:17 pm Michael,There is a vast difference between the belief in the Real Presence in the Anglican Communion and in the Catholic belief in transubstantiation of the elements into the actual Body and Blood of Christ. First, there is no real definition or clarity about what “Real Presence” actually means, and, as a former Episcopalian, I can say that no one was ever able to tell me what it really meant. Like many Protestant beliefs, each person has to make up his own mind about what he believes it to mean. Article XVIII of the Articles of Religion explicitly denies transubstantiation. There are, of course, many other serious differences in belief and practice between Catholicism and Anglicanism.

The Roman Catholic church argues that we did, that we cannot pass on Priestly authority through the laying on of hands of Bishops, but this is actually a practice that still persists in Anglicanism. There is a difference of opinion as to whether this is a valid act, however. Lutherans are the ones who have broken Apostolic succession, and although we are in full communion, if a Lutheran were to celebrate the Eucharist in an Anglican church, they would require the laying on of hands before it was valid for them to consecrate the elements.

RSF will draft proposals for improving the independence and the quality of journalism in Serbia. “We know that we must change something,” he nonetheless acknowledged, especially as regards the level of defamation and insults in the media. RSF regrets that, despite satisfactory media legislation, Vucic has failed to propose measures to ensure that the laws are implemented effectively. When RSF urged Vucic to appreciate the gravity of the many verbal and physical attacks on journalists and to respond appropriately, he provided specific information about some of the police investigations currently under way and recognized the need to shed light on several murders of journalists in the 1990s and the 2000s. RSF also deplored the lack of independence of many Serbian media outlets, especially the pro-government media, and the arbitrary way that state advertising its allocated. Describing Serbia’s media as polarized, which he said he regretted, Vucic denied the discretionary nature of state subsidies for the media. Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says “We think that that the Serbian president uses the excessive and abusive accusations published in certain, often secondary, news outlets to divert attention from the reality of his influence, or his party’s influence, over some of the biggest media, especially TV broadcasters,” Deloire said.

May 5, 2021 Find out more October 27, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Chechen journalist’s young wife attacked, left unconscious in Moscow Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Organisation to go further Reporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn that Madina Duduyeva, the wife of journalist Abdulla Duduyev, was attacked on her way to her children’s kindergarten in Moscow on 4 October 2011. Her assailants hit her on the head and back of the neck, causing her to fall and lose consciousness. She spent two days in a hospital with concussion and is still suffering from an acute stress reaction. Neither she nor Duduyev wanted to talk about the attack.Duduyev and fellow Chechen journalist Israpil Shovkhalov are the joint editors of Dosh, a Moscow-based independent quarterly that is an authoritative source of information about the Russian Caucasus.“There is no doubt that the attack on Duduyeva was linked to her husband’s work as a journalist,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It was the latest and most serious of a series of attempts in recent months to intimidate close relatives of Duduyev and Shovkhalov. Those responsible failed to silence the two journalists by threatening them directly, so they are targeting their families. This cowardly and intolerable technique of intimidation is widely used in the Russian Caucasus.”Shovkhalov told Reporters Without Borders that he and Duduyev have had the impression of being constantly watched in recent months and Duduyev kept finding microphones in his apartment last year. For years they have been getting threats in the form of anonymous phone calls or emails, or “warnings” passed to friends, but of late these threats have tended to target their families.A swastika was drawn on the door of Duduyev’s home in Moscow in early April 2011. Four days, Duduyeva was accosted for the first time while on her way to the kindergarten. Three youths shouted insults at her and asked her “why are you having children with this black man?” She was very frightened and spent several few months in a distant town with the two children, hoping that things would calm down. This seemed to have been the case until the attack of 4 October.While hospitalized in the Chechen capital of Grozny for a severe form of diabetes in the summer of 2010, Shavkhalov’s mother was told by a doctor that she would get better treatment if her son were to work “in the interests of his republic and not against it.” When finally transferred to Moscow, she was in such a poor shape as a result of inadequate treatment that she had to spend another four months in hospital. In early 2011, several individuals went to the home of Shovkhalov’s brother and advised him to “stop Israpil before it is too late.”Asked who he thought was behind the threats and attacks, Shavkhalov told Reporters Without Borders there were several possibilities but he preferred not mention them publicly for fear of putting their families in even more danger.“We are really worried about these two journalists and their families,” Reporters Without Borders added. “We urge the police to do everything in their power to identify those responsible for the attack on Dudeyeva and to end the threats to these journalists. The international community must not remain indifferent. It can help to protect journalists and their families by giving them multiple-entry visas, by quickly offering them safe refuge in cases of imminent danger, and by expressing their concern to the Russian authorities.”Independent journalists and human rights activists are under permanent threat in Russia, especially in the North Caucasus. The staff of Dosh were awarded the Reporters Without Borders Prize in the Media category in 2009 for their courage and the professionalism. In Chechnya and Ingushetiya, Dosh is one of the very few media outlets to cover the constant human rights violations by the security forces, the enforced disappearances and the widespread corruption.Duduyev and Shovkhalov were attacked and badly beaten in Moscow in January 2001 by unidentified assailants who objected to their criticism of then Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov.Read the interview that Duduyev and Shovkhalov gave to Reporters Without Borders in January 2011 Follow the news on Russia News Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing News News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption May 21, 2021 Find out more RussiaEurope – Central Asia News Help by sharing this information

Enshrined in article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, freedom of information encourages political, economic and social progress.The 14 April election does not just entail a choice between different political programmes. It also needs an in-depth public debate with equal airtime and respect for contrary opinions, which every candidate should guarantee. It is time to leave behind the polarization, with constant insults and vilification, that has dominated the media landscape for so long.This requires a commitment from the media to act responsibly. At the same time, they should be able to operate within an appropriate legal framework, one that is applied impartially. Safety of all journalists guaranteedArticle 46 of the 1999 Bolivarian Constitution rightly says that “every person has the right of respect for their physical, psychological and moral integrity”. This principle cannot be reconciled with a situation in which journalists, columnists and bloggers are exposed to public condemnation and attacks because the media they work for are identified with this or that political camp, especially during an election campaign.Since 15 March, outspoken critics of the Bolivarian government have complained of a campaign of hate-mongering and insults on social networks. At the same time, this campaign does not excuse the similar insults and attacks against journalists who work for state-owned broadcast media. Polarization, and the resulting lack of solidarity among employees of different media, has dramatically undermined journalists’ safety.Each candidate’s campaign managers must ensure that their activists and supporters do not threaten or attack journalists from any media engaged in campaign coverage. We also urge the winning candidate to establish, in coordination with journalists’ unions and organizations, a single court to investigate and punish all election-related attacks on freedom of information.Need for legislative reformReporters Without Borders hopes that, both during the campaign and after the polling, there will be no more exploitation of the media and Internet for the purpose of propaganda at the expense of a fair and open debate about political programmes and ideas.In particular, Reporters Without Borders calls for strict regulation of the official broadcasts known as “cadenas,” both in their content and duration. Given that the media, especially the state-owned media, are supposed to provide a “public service,” the “cadenas” should, during the campaign, take the form of spots for each of the seven presidential candidates that are of the same length and are broadcast the same number of times.Used until now for long speeches that all over-the-air broadcast media are required to carry at short notice, the “cadenas” have become a form of censorship and an additional factor in Venezuela’s “media war.” Only Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), the main state-owned TV channel, should have to broadcast them in their current form.Reform of the “cadenas” would have to be accompanied by a complete overhaul of media regulation, which is inappropriate and is implemented unfairly. Will Venezuela follow Uruguay and Argentina and become the next South American country to decriminalize defamation and insult? It is unfortunately so far the only one to have done the opposite and increase the jail terms for defamation and insult in its latest criminal law reform, in 2005, running counter to the South American trend.There is an even greater need to overhaul the Radio and TV Social Responsibility Law, known as the Resorte Law, article 10 of which imposes the “cadenas.” Adopted in 2004 and extended to the Internet in 2010, it contains provisions on “inciting or defending criminal activity,” “spreading panic among citizens,” “disturbing public order” and “discrediting the lawfully constituted authorities” that facilitate censorship and encourage self-censorship.These loosely-worded provisions for suspending media are open to extremely broad and subjective interpretation and have been turned into weapons for targeting media critical of the government. For pluralism’s sake, Reporters Without Borders is of the view that a thorough overhaul of the Resorte Law should be accompanied by a complete review of broadcast frequency allocation so that, as in other South American countries, there is equal provision for the three kinds of broadcast media – state-owned, privately-owned and community – while guaranteeing their independence.Need to preserve the Inter-American human rights systemThere is one more important undertaking that we think you should give. At the latest Organization of American States general assembly on 22 March, Venezuela and three other countries – Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua – were thwarted in their attempt to cut back the prerogatives of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), especially its funding and legal powers.This reform of the IACHR’s “functioning” was widely criticized by Latin American civil society organizations because it would have jeopardized the future of the Inter-American human rights system and its leading guarantor, the OAS Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression.While we welcome the resolution adopted by 35 member states on 22 March preserving the existing system, it leaves open the possibility of eventually changing this fundamental mechanism for protecting citizens who are at loggerheads with their governments. If elected, would you refrain from supporting a “reform” whose real political objective it so undermine the Inter-American human rights system and its Special Rapporteur?We thank you in advance for the attention you give to this letter and we undertake to publish any substantive responses to its various points that we receive from you.Sincerely,Christophe DeloireReporters Without Borders secretary-general to go further VenezuelaAmericas August 25, 2020 Find out more Organisation News Follow the news on Venezuela RSF_en News News June 15, 2020 Find out more

Other guidelines to be observed by the Family Courts include: Upon completion of the pleadings in the maintenance application, the Court shall fix the date for reconciliation and direct the parties to simultaneously file the affidavits of their assets, income and expenditure.

The High Court has asked the Family Courts to ensure that the filing of the affidavits is not reduced to a “mere ritual” or formality.Insist On Income & Assets Affidavit In Matrimonial Cases, Directs P&H HC It has suggested: If the affidavit of the party is not in the prescribed format or is not accompanied with all the relevant documents, the Court may take the affidavit on record and grant reasonable time to the party to remove the defects/deficiencies.If the party does not truly disclose all his assets and income, the opposite party is at liberty to serve the interrogatories under Order XI of the Code of Civil Procedure and/or seek production of relevant documents from the party filing the affidavit.In appropriate cases, Court may order interrogatories, discovery, inspection, production of any document and/or order any fact to be proved by affidavit under Section 30 of the Code of Civil Procedure.If any party delays in filing of the affidavit of assets, income and expenditure or the affidavit filed by a party is not in terms of these directions or a party delays the disclosure of further information/documents and the delay is causing hardship, the Court is at liberty to fix ad-interim maintenance after hearing the parties. After filing of the affidavit, the Court has directed the Family Courts to observe the following procedure: Consider whether the oral examination of the party is necessary under Section 165 of the Evidence Act. If so, the Court shall proceed to examine the party to elicit the truthIf the statements made in affidavit of assets, income and expenditure are found to be incorrect, the Court shall consider its effect by drawing an adverse inference or imposing additional cost, while fixing the maintenance. However, an action under Section 340 Cr.P.C. is ordinarily not warranted in matrimonial litigation till the decision of the main petition unless the Court, for the reasons to be recorded, considers it expedient in the interest of justice, to deal with it earlier. At the time of issuing notice on the petition for dissolution of marriage, the Court has directed that the family courts shall consider directing the petitioner to deposit such sum, as the it may consider appropriate for payment to the respondent towards interim litigation/ part litigation expenses; except in cases, such as, divorce petition by the wife who is unable to support herself and is claiming maintenance from the respondent husband It is clarified that the interim litigation expenses directed by the Court at the stage of issuing notice, does not preclude the respondent from seeking further litigation expenses incurred by the respondent at a later stage. At the time of passing a decree of divorce, the Court has directed that the family courts shall bring to the notice of the concerned party that he/she can claim permanent alimony without prejudice to his/her right to challenge the decree of divorce and if the party seeks permanent alimony, at that stage, for which an oral prayer/application is sufficient, the Court shall fix the permanent alimony on the basis of the affidavits of assets, income and expenditure, after hearing both the parties. However, if the affidavits have not been filed at the stage of fixing the permanent alimony, the Court shall direct the parties to file the same before fixing the permanent alimony.
