TODAY'S MASS ONLINE : SATURDAY JULY 14, 2012


Matthew 10: 24 - 33

24 "A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master;
25 it is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Be-el'zebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.
26 "So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.
27 What I tell you in the dark, utter in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim upon the housetops.
28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will.
30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
32 So every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven;
33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

EUROPE : BLOCK OF ICE FROM PLANE HITS CATHEDRAL

CATHOLIC HERALD REPORT:
By David V Barrett on Thursday, 12 July 2012
Brentwood Cathedral, dedicated in 1991 (Photo: Dr Simon Johnson)
Worshippers attending Mass at Brentwood Cathedral in Essex had a rude experience when a large block of ice fell through the roof during the Eucharistic Prayer.
Fr James Mackay told BBC Essex: “Last Sunday just gone, I was celebrating Mass and halfway through there was a massive explosion to the west side of the cathedral. Everything was stopped as we heard this. I turned to my left to see lots of slate and white stuff falling from the roof. After a couple of seconds of shocked pause, I said: ‘Right, let’s crack on.’ And we did.”
Fr Mackay said: “It became clear later on that it was actually a block of frozen refuse that dropped from an aeroplane. We could see the damage – it fell straight through the slate… It was a bit of an adventure.”
The hole in the roof was repaired the following day.
Such incidents are rare because airplanes are not supposed to dump their waste mid-flight.
It is not the first time frozen waste has smashed into a place of worship. A block of ice from an aircraft damaged Essex Church, a Unitarian chapel in west London, in 1971.

AUSTRALIA : EUTHANASIA DEBATE CONTINUES

ARCHDIOCESE OF SYDNEY REPORT:
Catholic Communications, Sydney Archdiocese,
13 Jul 2012



The euthanasia debate is still alive and well
A video debate including right-to-die advocate Dr Philip Nitschke and leading Australian ethicist Dr Bernadette Tobin is attracting a large and increasing number of online hits proving the debate is certainly not in the end stages.
An initiative of the Australian Catholic University (ACU), the debate is the third in the university's Speaker Voice series and marked the first time euthanasia campaigner and founder of Exit International, Dr Nitschke had debated the issue with leading Catholic ethics, palliative care and legal experts.
Dr Tobin is Director of the Plunkett Centre for Ethics at the Plunkett Centre for Ethics at St Vincent's & Mater Health and following the format of the previous two Speaker Voice symposiums, gave the evening's keynote address which was followed by a panel discussion and wide-ranging debate.
The panel comprised Dr Nitschke, Dr Tobin, Fr Frank Brennan who is Professor of Law at ACU and Adjunct Professor of Law at the Australian National University (ANU) and Professor O'Connor, the Vivian Bullwinkel Chair in Palliative Nursing at Monash University, Melbourne.

Plunkett Centre for Ethics
In addition to the debate there was also a question and answer session.
The evening explored the issue of euthanasia from all sides and raised many of the ethical and legal ramifications that would result from the legalisation of euthanasia not only for those who wish to voluntarily end their lives but for their families, loved ones and the medical profession as a whole.
The first of ACU's quarterly Speaker Voice Series was held in October last year. The first of these symposiums which are free and open to the public, and are designed to trigger public debate, tackled the Ethics of War. Philosophers, ethicists and the National Director of Amnesty International examined the issue of war and whether it was a necessary evil in the protection of human rights and whether scientists should take responsibility for the weapons they created that enabled destruction to be carried out on such a massive and devastating scale.
The second of the series held in March this year explored the issue of Refugees, human rights and our ethical obligations as Australians.


Right to Die Advocate Dr Philip Nitschke part of
ACU debate on Ethics and Euthanasia
Videos of all three Speaker Voice Series are now available on line on the ACU's Speaker Voice website.
The fourth in this important series will take place on 29 August when experts will debate Climate Change. Professor Clive Hamilton, Professor of Public Ethics at Charles Sturt University will deliver the key note address. He will also be part of the panel which will include leading scientist and conservationist, Professor Tim Flannery, former Liberal senator Nick Minchin and Fr Frank Brennan.
The event is open to the public and is free of charge. However space is limited so check out the ACU website and Voice Series to find out how to register at http://www.acu.edu.au/about_acu/research/about_us/news_and_events/acuvoice_speaker_series/upcoming_lectures/ethics_and_euthanasia/

ASIA : AFGHANISTAN : HEAD OF WOMEN'S AFFAIRS KILLED

ASIA NEWS REPORT:
Two attacks, yesterday and this morning. Hanifa Safi head of the women's affairs department of the province of Laghman killed by a bomb planted in his car. Ahmad Khan, top military chief and close to Karzai died in a suicide bombing that killed 22 people. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks.


Kabul (AsiaNews / Agencies) - Attacks against leading Afghan personalities continue. This morning at Aybak (Samangan), a bomb killed Ahmad Khan, head of the province of Samangan. The attack, which occurred during a wedding party, left more than 22 dead and 40 wounded. It came just one day after the tragic death of Hanifa Safi (pictured), head of the Department for women's affairs of the eastern Afghan province of Laghman (eastern Afghanistan), among the most influential women in Afghanistan, who was killed by a bomb placed under the car in which she was traveling with her husband. At the moment nobody has claimed the two attacks. This morning, Taliban leaders issued a statement in which they deny any involvement.

Experts say the attack against Khan is related to the diatribes among Afghan ethnic groups for control of the country. Originally from Uzbekistan, he was a strong supporter of President Karzai's Pashtun faction, which in recent years has woven several alliances with ethnic Uzbeks and Tajiks in an effort to give way to reconciliation with the Taliban.

If the death of Khan seems to have ties to political roots in the internal battle for power, no one can explain the murder of Hanifa Safi. She was engaged for years in defending the rights of Afghan women and was a symbol of change after years of Taliban rule. Jan Kubis, UN representative in Kabul, said that the entire population is shocked by this news. "The killing - he says - of a courageous person who dedicated her life to serving her country, devoting herself to improving the status of women is an insult to all of Afghanistan."

Khan and Hanifa Safi join the sad list of leaders and politicians engaged in dialogue who have been killed between 2011 and 2012. Among these, Burhanuddin Rabbani, President of the Council for Peace in Afghanistan and head of dialogue with Taliban, killed by a suicide bomber Sept. 20, 2011.

AFRICA : NIGERIA : PRAYERS NEEDED FOR PEACE IN TENSE CONFLICT

Agenzia Fides REPORT - The current activities of the dreaded Boko Haram sect could trigger a broad sectarian conflict in Nigeria, says a report prepared by a joint Christian-Muslim delegation that recently visited Nigeria. The 12-member joint delegation was led by World Council of Churches, WCC, Secretary General of the Olav Fyske Tveit and Jordanian Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, chairman of the board of the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought.
"There is a possibility that the current tension and conflict might become subsumed by its religious dimension, especially along the geographical religious fault-lines" said the report that warns: blaming only the religious element as the cause of the conflict is likely to create "a self-fulfilling prediction."
A typical "geographical religious fault-line" is the so-called Nigeria’s Middle Belt, which is part of Plateau State, the area of central Nigeria on the border between the south, mostly Christian, and the north, largely Muslim. The latest massacres have been recorded in Plateau State, caused by old rivalry between Fulani Muslim breeders and Birom Christian farmers (see Fides 09/07/2012).The Christian-Muslim delegation noted that "although the violence is the worst between members of the two faiths since the Bosnian war of 1992-95, the root causes go far beyond religion." "Corruption, mismanagement, land disputes and lack of aid for victims or punishment for troublemakers as fuel for tension, especially in the so-called Middle Belt". In this area one releases the tensions caused by the "wealth gap between the oil- producing states in the South and the resource-poor North" to which are added the latent conflict between local farmers and breeders.
To try to promote reconciliation in Nigeria, the WCC and the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought finally decided to publish books for the distribution to local schools to explain the theological foundations of peace in both religions, and to launch a poster for interreligious cooperation.

TODAY'S SAINT: JULY 14: BL. KATERI TEKAKWITHA



Bl. Kateri Tekakwitha
VIRGIN
Feast: July 14


Information:
Feast Day: July 14
Born: 1656, Ossernenon, Iroquois Confederacy (Modern Auriesville, New York)
Died: 17 April 1680 at Caughnawaga, Canada
Beatified: 22 June 1980 by Pope John Paul II
Major Shrine: St Francis Xavier Church, Kahnawake, Quebec, Canada
Patron of: ecology
Known as the "Lily of the Mohawks", and the "Genevieve of New France" an Indian virgin of the Mohawk tribe, born according to some authorities at the Turtle Castle of Ossernenon, according to others at the village of Gandaouge, in 1656; died at Caughnawaga, Canada, 17 April, 1680.
Her mother was a Christian Algonquin who had been captured by the Iroquois and saved from a captive's fate by the father of Tekakwitha, to whom she also bore a son. When Tekakwitha was about four years old, her parents and brother died of small-pox, and the child was adopted by her aunts and an uncle who had become chief of the Turtle clan. Although small-pox had marked her face and seriously impaired her eyesight and her manner was reserved and shrinking, her aunts began when she was yet very young to form marriage projects for her, from which, as she grew older, she shrank with great aversion.
In 1667 the Jesuit missionaries Fremin, Bruyas, and Pierron, accompanying the Mohawk deputies who had been to Quebec to conclude peace with the French, spent three days in the lodge of Tekakwitha's uncle. From them she received her first knowledge of Christianity, but although she forthwith eagerly accepted it in her heart she did not at that time ask to be baptized. Some time later the Turtle clan moved to the north bank of the Mohawk River, the "castle" being built above what is now the town of Fonda. Here in the midst of scenes of carnage, debauchery, and idolatrous frency Tekakwitha lived a life of remarkable virtue, at heart not only a Christian but a Christian virgin, for she firmly and often, with great risk to herself, resisted all efforts to induce her to marry.
When she was eighteen, Father Jacques de Lamberville arrived to take charge of the mission which included the Turtle clan, and from him, at her earnest request, Tekakwitha received baptism. Thenceforth she practised her religion unflinchingly in the face of almost unbearable opposition, till finally her uncle's lodge ceased to be a place of protection to her and she was assisted by some Christian Indians to escape to Caughnawaga on the St. Laurence. Here she lived in the cabin of Anastasia Tegonhatsihonga, a Christian Indian woman, her extraordinary sanctity impressing not only her own people but the French and the missionaries. Her mortifications were extreme, and Chauchtiere says that she had attained the most perfect union with God in prayer.
Upon her death devotion to her began immediately to be manifested by her people. Many pilgrims visit her grave in Caughnawaga where a monument to her memory was erected by the Rev. Clarence Walworth in 1884; and Councils of Baltimore and Quebec have petitioned for her canonization. On 22 June 1980, she was beatified by Pope John Paul II; her feast day is celebrated on 14 July.

TODAY'S SAINT: JULY 14: ST. CAMILLUS DE LELLIS



St. Camillus de Lellis
FOUNDER
Feast: July 14


Information:
Feast Day: July 14
Born: 1550 at Bocchiavico, Abruzzi, kingdom of Naples, Italy
Died: 14 July 1614 at Genoa, Italy
Canonized: 1746 by Pope Benedict XIV
Major Shrine: Church of Mary Magdalene, Rome, Italy
Patron of: against illness, hospitals, hospital workers, nurses, sick people
THE early years of Camillus gave no sign of sanctity. At the age of nineteen he took service with his father, an Italian noble, against the Turks, and after four years’ hard campaigning found himself, through his violent temper, reckless habits, and inveterate passion for gambling, a discharged soldier, and in such straitened circumstances that he was obliged to work as a laborer on a Capuchin convent which was then building. A few words from a Capuchin friar brought about his conversion, and he resolved to become a religious. Thrice he entered the Capuchin novitiate, but each time an obstinate wound in his leg forced him to leave. He repaired to Rome for medical treatment, and there took St. Philip as his confessor, and entered the hospital of St. Giacomo, of which he became in time the superintendent. The carelessness of the paid chaplains and nurses towards the suffering patients now inspired him with the thought of founding a congregation to minister to their wants. With this end he was ordained priest, and in 1586 his community of the Servants of the Sick was confirmed by the Pope. Its usefulness was soon felt, not only in hospitals, but in private houses. Summoned at every hour of the day and night, the devotion of Camillus never grew cold. With a woman's tenderness he attended to the needs of his patients. He wept with them, consoled them, and prayed with them. He knew miraculously the state of their souls; and St. Philip saw angels whispering to two Servants of the Sick who were consoling a dying person. One day a sick man said to the Saint, "Father, may I beg you to make up my bed? it is very hard." Camillus replied, "God forgive you, brother! You beg me! Don't you know yet that you are to command me, for I am your servant and slave." "Would to God," he would cry, "that in the hour of my death one sigh or one blessing of these poor creatures might fall upon me!" His prayer was heard. He was granted the same consolations in his last hour which he had so often procured for others. In the year 1614 he died with the full use of his faculties, after two weeks' saintly preparation, as the priest was reciting the words of the ritual, "May Jesus Christ appear to thee with a mild and joyful countenance!"
