His latest announcement is in contradiction with his last statement asking Catholics not to breed like rabbits. This time, the pope was primarily making the speech to remind of the importance of children in people’s lives as well as society as a whole and the joy they bring. Pope Francis disapproved of couples choosing to keep a dog or have cats as pets and loving them instead of deciding to be parents. All Christian News is a website for Christians, focusing on issues that matter to those who subscribe to the faith. The first stop on his two-nation journey is Sri Lanka where it is hoped the Pope’s visit will help spur reconciliation efforts after the country's 30-year civil war.
Pope Francis begins his week-long trip to Sri Lanka and the Philippines when he arrives in the Sri Lankan capital Colombo this morning. He is due to address the bishops of Sri Lanka, pay a courtesy visit to the Sri Lankan president and attend an inter-religious meeting at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall in Colombo on Tuesday evening. The Pontiff will preside at the canonisation of Blessed Joseph Vaz at Galle Face Green in Colombo on Wednesday morning before visiting the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary at Madhu in the afternoon. On Thursday he will fly to Manila and on Friday he will celebrate Mass with bishops, priests, and religious at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Manila. Later on Friday he will take part in an encounter with families, while on Saturday Pope Francis will travel to Tacloban, one of the areas worst affected in November 2013 by Hurricane Haiyan. There, he will celebrate Mass and have lunch with the poor and survivors of the typhoon at the Residence of the Archbishop of Palo. Back on Manila on Sunday, the Pope will participate in an Encounter with the Youth at the Pontifical University of Santo Tomas in Manila.
The first stop on his two-nation journey is Sri Lanka where he will be welcomed by the Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Albert Malcolm Ranjith, and the President of Sri Lanka, Maithripala Sirisena. Speaking to Vatican Radio, Cardinal Ranjith said that he hoped the timing of the Pope’s visit will help to spur the new government in its work of reconciliation after a 30-year civil war.
The Pope arrives in Sri Lanka shortly after elections that resulted in a change in government leadership. The newly elected president has promised to works towards reconciliation on the island, where a decades long civil war ended in 2009.
The predominantly Buddhist Sinhalese make up about 75% of the population, with predominantly-Hindu Tamils being the largest minority group.
Catholics make up just 6% of the population, and are comprised of both Sinhalese and Tamils. The Cardinal also noted the Pope wants to keep things simple, and to have contact with the poor and sick of Sri Lanka.
Not only will you get savings and high-quality service but you will also help us invest in CatholicIreland and our contribution to the New Evangelisation. Mansella, former translation coordinator for the Episcopal Church, recently served as interim rector at St. The Roman Catholic cathedral in Buenos Aires is just a few blocks from the Anglican cathedral and “‘Padre Jorge,’ as he wanted to be called – even as archbishop and cardinal – used to walk the few blocks from his residence to attend several ecumenical events at St.
There was early confusion about whether Bergoglio took the papal name in honor of Francis of Assisi, founder the Franciscan order, or Francis Xavier, one of the first seven Jesuits and the patron saint of Roman Catholic missionaries.
The Society of Jesus, whose members are called Jesuits, is known for its missionary work and its commitment to social justice and evangelization.
In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI, Pope Francis’ predecessor, created the Anglican Ordinariates in England and the United States to allow provisions for former or disaffected Anglicans to join the Roman Catholic Church.

While he was primate of the Southern Cone, Venables offered oversight to conservative members of parishes and dioceses breaking away from the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada. Several Anglican primates issued statements about the pope’s election as they anticipate the formal enthronement of Welby, their own new spiritual leader, in an invitation-only ceremony on March 21 at Canterbury Cathedral.
Archbishop Phillip Aspinall, primate of the Anglican Church of Australia, said that Pope Francis brings with him “a wonderful reputation for social justice, care for the poor and humility. In a statement, Tveit said that ever since the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s, the Roman Catholic Church and the World Council of Churches have enjoyed constructive dialogue and cooperation on matters of faith, witness and the fundamental unity of the whole body of Christ.
The Roman Catholic Church is not an official member of the WCC, but delegates and observers often attend major meetings. All the profuse exuberance about the new pope will settle down to reality very soon as people realize this is no John XXIII seeking to open the windows and ket in a breath of fresh aur into a church which has retreated since Vatican II into the Middle Ages.
I am a gay man and very conservative in my theology of the Christian faith being brought up in the Pentecostal Holiness church tell I was 15 .Let me tell you this most Pentecostal churches think like Rome that the rest of us are all going to hell but them .
The Bishop Of Rome has my prayers and respect as a follow Christian and brother in Christ, but he will not embrace gay people with true love because he sees us as sick unnatural human beings . I was raised Roman Catholic, and am proud to have become a member of the far more Christ-like Episcopal Church! One question I have for us Episcopalians: do not we want our Church to be Holy for we worship there and do not we want the ecstasy of lovemaking to come from the Sacrament of marriage made from the Presence of God? A surprise snub at the IPL auction proved to be the final nail in the cross coffin that led to today’s tearful Rome press conference.
However, such a role would be untenable, given pending allegations that The Pope covered up systematic abuse of young Indian bowlers by batsmen around the world for over a decade. Pope Francis, 77, showed no signs of exhaustion after his recent three-day trip to the Holy Land, which ended with a lengthy conversation with reporters while on the plane back to Rome. Money is at the center of the economic system -- one that should value people instead of things, Francis said.
Greek and Coptic Catholics both allow priests to marry, and because celibacy “is not a dogma of faith, the door is open,” Francis said. Francis will be traveling to South Korea and also to Sri Lanka and the Philippines, where he aims to help those who are suffering as a result of their faith. Those who get divorced are sometimes treated as though they were excommunicated, he added, and they are not.
At the end of the 45-minute on board press conference with journalists, Francis smiled and said, “Thank you all so much for your company, for your kindness, and please, I ask you to pray for me. He remembered spending time in Argentina as a young boy and recalled that when his mother was asked about who was her favorite child, she would say that her five children were like the five fingers of her hand.
He believes that couples who decide not to have their own children will someday regret it when solitude sets in during their old age and they will have to face the bitter company of loneliness. Thomas Mansella described the new pope, whom he knew during his service as Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, as a man of deep humility and faith. Early in their history, the Jesuits ran afoul of the pope, the Roman Curia and some nations more than once, but mostly for political and economic reasons rather than theological ones. The controversial announcement came as a surprise to many Anglicans, including then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams who had not been consulted about the plan despite having built a close relationship with Pope Benedict.
Lohre said: “All of us have seen profound growth among Christians of every tradition in Latin America and throughout the southern hemisphere. Catholic Conference and has been active with the NCC in ecumenical ministries and programs, and Roman Catholics have served on NCC commissions and committees.

Bergoglio is a man who will not grant women the dignity and equality in the church which they have been denied fora millenium. As for woman you can be a Sunday school teacher , clean up the church or become a nun , so your not equal to men . Of course I believe in equailty for women, and those of us born Gay (and Proud!) But, let’s please be open-minded and keep Pope Francis I in our prayers, and kind thoughts. Although his comments about celibacy were largely what made headlines around the world, the pontiff's no-holds-barred press conference spanned a variety of topics, including the economy and unemployment, divorced Catholics and communion, and the Church’s sexual abuse scandal. But instead, he added, the current system has cast out an entire generation of Europeans who are neither studying nor working -- and this is very serious. Just last week, he was caught in a web of controversy because of his comment about disciplining children, saying that it was okay to hit them as long as their dignity is maintained. But because he has condemned the current Argentinian official corruption, he is not liked by the powers that be. Rose, the Episcopal Church’s ecumenical and interreligious deputy, told ENS that she hopes Pope Francis “will be a leader who risks doing some new things for the sake of the Gospel and who follows in the footsteps of his namesake in calling for the care of the poor and all creation.
Hopefully he will follow the path of Francis of Assisi in solidarity with the poor, the oppressed and the dispossessed.
An Argentinian of European parentage, he brings together in his own person the cultures, hopes and spiritual needs of the first world and of the developing world, so much to be valued amidst the complexities and apprehensions of our globalised earth. Nor will he end the war on gay people which his mentor John Paul II waged with vehemence and which his predecessor Benedict XVI continued. How can people blame people like me for not bowing down and being happy about what is going on in the Roman Church ? After all, many folks are “evolving”, as they examine their hearts- an example of this, is our fine President Obama! Subscribe via SoundCloud or iTunes, or be forced to face Dale Steyn on a greentop for all eternity. He succeeded Pope John Paul II.Benedict XVI is a respected Roman Catholic theologian and a prolific bestselling author, a defender of traditional Catholic doctrine and values. The new Pope is a far better choice than the last Pope, and I believe that while Padre Jorje is not perfect, his heart and values seem to be in the right place. He served as a professor at various German universities and was a theological consultant at the Second Vatican Council before becoming Archbishop of Munich and Freising and later a Cardinal. What we are seeing in Rome is just the latest chapter of a morally bankrupt church using all the pomp of Hollywood to make itself look like what it is not, a truly Christian institution. Also, one of the Cardinals who managed coverups to shelter rapist priests, voted for the new pope (without any sense of shame). I will pray for all Christians as the Christ of the Bible has taught me , but be happy about where Rome is going no.
The Episcopal Church embraces my conservative theology as long as I have respect for all under the big tent of this Church of Jesus Christ.
If it was not for The Episcopal Church I would be dead by my own hand , thinking I had no way to change so no chance to gain salvation.
