Not encouraging news

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko held one-on-one talks Tuesday in Minsk against a backdrop of rising tension over the Ukrainian capture of 10 Russian paratroopers on Ukrainian territory.

The leaders spent two hours discussing bilateral concerns following a regional economic summit in MInsk in which Putin said there is no military solution to the crisis in Ukraine. It was their first meeting since a chilly encounter in June during D-Day commemorations in Normandy, France.

"We are ready to exchange opinions on the current urgent crisis situation in Ukraine, which, we are convinced, cannot be solved through further escalation of the military scenario, without account for the vital interests of the country's southeastern regions, without peace dialogue with their representatives," Putin said at the meeting, which included representatives of the European Commission, the Russian ITAR-Tass news agency reported.

Putin's press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, provided no immediate comment on the results of the talks, the state-run RT news network reported.

He said earlier that any bilateral talks would likely include "Ukrainian domestic crisis and the terrible humanitarian disaster in the east of the country, as well as the need for a ceasefire," according to RT.

The two shook hands for the cameras at the start of the conference in the Belarusian capital.

Putin's remarks appeared to be double-edged. It signaled Kremlin willingness to reduce its military support for ethnic Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, but also underscored Moscow's effort to stop Ukraine's military advances that have steadily gained ground against Russian-backed rebels.

Most of the fighting, which has cost at least 2,000 lives, has been concentrated in Ukraine's industrialized Donbass region and the key rebel strongholds of Donetsk and Luhansk, which separatists have declared as independent states.

Poroshenko, the Ukrainian president, told the gathering in Minsk that "the fate of the world and Europe" is being decided there.

"The purpose of my visit to Minsk is to stop the bloodshed and to start the process of finding a political compromise," he said, according to the Russian news agency RT.com . "The interests of the people of Donbass should and will be taken into account" in this solution, he added.

He called Ukraine "a responsible member of the international community," saying that it demands respect for its sovereignty and territorial integrity. "The Ukrainian people have made their choice in favor of a unitary democratic European state," he said.

The talks come as the military tension in Ukraine shows no signs of abating.

The Facebook page for Ukraine's anti-rebel operation — which includes the military, the national guard and Interior Ministry forces — said 10 soldiers from a Russian paratrooper division were captured Monday in the area of Amvrosiivka, near the Russian border in the Donetsk region.

The website posted videos — which also appeared on Ukrainian TV and a Ukrainian newspaper website — of several of the Russian soldiers being questioned.

In the News

The Vatican is speaking out against a claim that Pope Francis is a target of the Islamic State militant group, otherwise known as ISIS.

In an article published Monday, Italy's Il Tempo newspaper reported that the pope is a target of ISIS. The paper, citing an unnamed Italian intelligence source, states the pope -- who is considered the "bearer of false truths" by the group -- is "in the crosshairs of ISIS" and that the extremist group plans to "raise the level of confrontation" by attacking Italy and greater Europe.

However, the Vatican has dismissed the report.

“There is nothing serious to this," spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi S.J. told Catholic News Agency. "There is no particular concern in the Vatican. This news has no foundation."

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who is behind the group's offense to overtake large regions of Iraq and Syria in an effort to establish its own Islamic State, issued a threat against Rome earlier this summer, near the start of Ramadan.

"Rush O Muslims to your state. It is your state. Syria is not for Syrians and Iraq is not for Iraqis. The land is for the Muslims, all Muslims," he said in an audio recording posted online and reported by the Telegraph. "This is my advice to you. If you hold to it you will conquer Rome and own the world, if Allah wills."

Earlier this month, ISIS took control of Iraq's largest Christian city, CNN reported. At the time, the pontiff expressed concern for Christians in the region.

While he has not endorsed American airstrikes against the group, Pope Francis has said ISIS must be stopped.

"I can only say this: It is licit to stop the unjust aggressor. I underline the verb: stop. I do not say bomb, make war, I say stop by some means," he said during a press conference last week, according to CNN. Adding: "It is there that this should be discussed. Is there an unjust aggressor? It would seem there is. How do we stop him?"

In the news .....

(Vatican Radio) The Church "is the home of Jesus," a house of mercy that welcomes all, and therefore not a place where Christians should close the doors to those seeking to enter. This was the message at the heart of Pope Francis’ homily Tuesday morning at Mass at the Santa Marta guesthouse in the Vatican.

It is a message that Pope Francis has repeated many times in the past: that of Jesus who opens the doors to anyone who seeks Him and especially to those far from Him. But, the Pope laments, some Christians shut out those who knock at the door of the Church. While Christ offers complete mercy, those who profess to believe in Him sometimes fail Him by closing the door on others.
Do not stop those seeking Christ
The Pope's reflection begins with water, the protagonist of Tuesday’s liturgical readings. Calling it "the water that heals," Francis comments on the Prophet Ezekiel’s description of the trickle of water emerging from the doorway of the temple, and which becomes a raging torrent rich with fish, capable of healing anyone. And, in the Gospel: the water of the pool of Bethesda where a sad paralyzed man lies just on the edge. The Pope describes him as a little '"lazy" - never having found a way to immerse himself in the moving waters to seek healing. Instead, Jesus heals him and encourages him to "go on", but this triggers the criticism of the doctors of the law because the healing took place on Saturday. It’s a tale notes the Pope, which occurs "many times" today:
"A man - a woman – who feels sick in the soul, sad, who made many mistakes in life, at a certain time feels that the waters are moving - the Holy Spirit is moving something - or they hear a word or ...'Ah, I want to go!'... And they gather up their courage and go. And how many times in Christian communities today will they find closed doors!'But you cannot, no, you cannot [come in]. You have sinned and you cannot [come in]. If you want to come, come to Mass on Sunday, but that’s it – that’s all you can do.’ So, what the Holy Spirit creates in the hearts of people, those Christians with their ‘doctors of the law’ mentality, destroy ".
The Church is the house of Jesus
"This pains me," the Pope says, reiterating that the Church always keeps its doors open:
"It’s Jesus’ home and Jesus welcomes [all]. But not only does He welcome, He goes out to see people just as He went out to find this man. And if people are hurt, what does Jesus do? Scold them because they are hurt? No, He comes and He carries them on His shoulders. And this is called mercy. And when God rebukes his people -'I desire mercy, not sacrifice!'– He’s talking about this. "
Love is the law
"Who are you,” the Pope continues,“ who shut the door of your heart to a man, a woman, who wants to improve, to return within the people of God - because the Holy Spirit has stirred his or her heart?" Lent, concludes Francis, helps us to avoid making the same mistake as those who regarded with contempt Jesus’ love towards the paralytic, solely because it was contrary to the law:
"We call today on the Lord in the Mass for us, for each of us and for the whole Church, a conversion to Jesus, a conversion to Jesus, a conversion to the mercy of Jesus. And so the Law will be fully accomplished, because the Law is to love God and our neighbor as ourselves. "

in the News ... another viewpoint

Washington D.C., Mar 18, 2015 / 05:02 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Pope's surprise announcement of a holy year for mercy has Catholics weighing in on the significance of the move, which some say can be boiled down to this: Francis wants us to know how much God loves us.

The Fathers of Mercy, a priestly order based in Kentucky, said they were thrilled when news of the jubilee broke last week. A self-described “itinerant missionary preaching order of priests,” they conduct parish missions focused on conversion through the sacraments of Mass and Confession.

“We see first-hand the reality and beauty of conversion – God's mercy at work,” member Father Wade told CNA.

During a penitential service at St. Peter's Basilica March 12, Pope Francis announced the extraordinary jubilee Year of Mercy, which will begin later this year on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Dec. 8. It will end on the Solemnity of Christ the King, Nov. 20, 2016.

The scriptural focus for the jubilee year will be Christ's command from Luke 6:36,“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”

“It's a journey that starts with a spiritual conversion,” Pope Francis said at the announcement.

But what is mercy, and how is it concretely practiced?

“Mercy is who God is. It is love's second name,” Fr. Menezes said. And conversion is its “most concrete expression,” he added, quoting St. John Paul II's 1980 papal encyclical “Dives in Misericordia,” or “Rich in Mercy.”

“God is more interested in our future than in our past,” he explained. God takes past sin “seriously” but never “as the last word,” because He “wants each one of us to become the 'best version' of our self that He wills for each one of us, personally, in His divine and eternal mind, and this requires conversion.”

This is exactly what Pope Francis has in mind in announcing the Year of Mercy, said Kathryn Jean Lopez, founding director of Catholic Voices USA.

“In our busy, buzzing, often bifurcated lives, we often don't find the time for the silence of examination of conscience. This Holy Father is a Jesuit spiritual director to the world, urging us to see just how much God loves us, reorienting our hearts to His,” she told CNA.

Rather than proposing something radically new, Pope Francis is continuing the devotion to mercy of his predecessors St. John Paul II and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, noted Lopez.

“Pope John Paul II loved Divine Mercy so, Pope Benedict would call him the apostle of Divine Mercy. Benedict would also say that Divine Mercy is the name of God himself,” she said.

Religion in England , of interest to many on the thread

Anglican
Main article: Church of England
The established religion of the realm is the Church of England, whose Supreme Governor is Queen Elizabeth II although the worldwide Anglican Communion is governed by the General Synod of its bishops under the authority of Parliament. 26 of the church's 42 bishops are Lords Spiritual, representing the church in the House of Lords. The dioceses of England are divided between the two provinces of Canterbury and York, both of whose archbishops are considered primates. The church regards itself as the continuation of the Catholic church introduced by St Augustine's 6th-century mission to Kent, although this is disputed owing to procedural and doctrinal changes introduced by the 16th-century English Reformation, particularly the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion and the Book of Common Prayer. In 2010, the Church of England counted 25 million baptised members out of the 41 million Christians in Great Britain's population of about 60 million;[3][4] around the same time, it also claimed to baptise one in 8 newborn children.[5] Generally, anyone in England may marry or be buried at their local parish church, whether or not they have been baptised in the church.[6] Actual attendance has declined steadily since 1890,[7] with around one million attending Sunday services and three million joining Christmas Eve and Christmas services.[8] It has around 18&#8201;000 active and ordained clergy.[9]

The Free Church of England is another Anglican denomination which separated from the High Church in the 19th century in opposition to shifts in doctrine and ceremony that brought it closer to Catholicism. The Free Church is in communion with the Reformed Episcopal Church in the United States and Canada.

Roman Catholic
Main articles: Catholic Church in England and Anti-Catholicism in the United Kingdom
The Catholic Church in England and Wales is directed by its Bishops' Conference, whose current president—the Archbishop of Westminster—considers himself the continuation of the see at Canterbury.(The Catholic Church is forbidden from using the names of the Anglican dioceses by the 1851 Ecclesiastical Titles Act.) It is divided among five provinces headed by the archbishops of Westminster, Liverpool, Birmingham, and Southwark in England and Cardiff in Wales. The Catholic Church considers itself a continuation of the earliest Celtic Christian communities, although its formal hierarchy needed to be refounded by the Gregorian mission to the Saxon kingdoms in the 6th and 7th centuries and again following the English Reformation. Papal recognition of George III as the legitimate ruler of the United Kingdom in 1766 opened the way for the Catholic Emancipation, easing and ultimately eliminating the anti-Catholic Penal Laws and Test Acts.(Although this process sometimes faced great popular opposition, as during the 1780 Gordon Riots in London.) Daniel O'Connell was the first Catholic member of Parliament.[10] The influx of large numbers of Irish Catholics during the Great Famine of the 1840s and '50s permitted the 1850 papal bull Universalis Ecclesiae to formally reconstitute the dormant dioceses of the Catholic church in Britain. More recently, the royal family has been permitted to marry Roman Catholics without fear of abdication[11] Recent immigration from Catholic countries, particularly Poland and Lithuania, has increased the church's numbers still more.[12] Polling in 2009 suggested there were about 5.2 million Catholics in England and Wales, about 9.6% of the population,[13] concentrated in the northwest. Some studies show that weekly attendance at Catholic masses now exceeds that of the Anglican services.[12]

God Save the Queen

Sixty years ago today George VI died and his eldest daughter, Elizabeth ascended to the throne as Queen Elizabeth II. It has been a remarkable reign during which time she has seen twelve British prime ministers and as we know, the world has changed incredibly.

If you look at any coin with the Queen’s portrait on it you will see round her head ‘ELIZABETH II D.G. REG. F.D.’ This is short for ‘Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor’. This can then be translated as ‘Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith’.

t is my prayer that on this Christmas day we might all find room in our lives for the message of the angels and for the love of God through Christ our Lord.”(2011)

We should be thankful to God for our Queen, irrespective of our views of the monarchy as a whole, for in her we have a great evangelist to our nation.
