We welcome all to come see it! Rae Markus says: November 14, 2012 at 8:00 pm It is amazing that people in this modern world would believe in such nonsense. There is no way an inanimate object can cause actual healing. There is no place for this sort of idolatry amongst educated peoples. The beliefs of the 5th century hardly qualify as something valid for today.I would really expect some more progressive works in the Episcopal Church amongst all the churches around today. Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Posted Nov 12, 2012 November 17, 2012 at 1:22 am There’s a Chinese saying: The person who says it can’t be done should not interrupt the one doing it. Rector Knoxville, TN Featured Events Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Bath, NC Simone Kronae says: Submit a Job Listing [St. Mark’s Episcopal Church] While perusing the inventory of an antiquities dealer several years ago, a small bronze cross caught Anson Williams’ eye.  Williams, a veteran director of film and television, well-known as “Potsie” and the star of the iconic television series “Happy Days,” describes himself as being “very spiritual,” and having a life-long attraction to sacred art.“The simple beauty of this ancient cross spoke to me,” says Williams, who acquired the piece after seeing photographs and a description identifying it as a very unique pectoral cross of the Byzantine Empire dating to the early 6th Century.  Admiration of the aesthetic was soon enhanced by a more spiritual experience, Williams claims.  “My appreciation of the cross as a piece of art was soon overcome by a very real sense of something powerful when I held it in my hand.”  Williams felt compelled to share the cross with others.  “Many people who held and touched the cross described to me that they also experienced something very powerful, from relieving physical pain to feeling an indescribable, transcendent peacefulness come over them. Someone began calling it the ‘Healing Cross.’ The name stuck, because that’s exactly what it is,” Williams explains. “I can’t explain its powerful effect, but it’s there. I’ve personally witnessed it.”  A native of Burbank, California who grew up Jewish, Williams says he couldn’t ignore what others had experienced through the Healing Cross, and he began looking for a religious community that could serve as a suitable home for the sacred object.Fr. Mark Weitzel, the Rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Glendale, explains that Facebook enabled a connection.  “One of our parishioners has a long-standing family connection to Anson, and he noticed a Facebook post on Anson’s online profile with a photo of the cross and its story,” says Weitzel. “That sparked a dialogue between Anson and the church, and we agreed that the Healing Cross was something very special indeed that should be made available to the public.”Working with internationally-known designer and sacred art expert Rhett Judice, Williams and Weitzel oversaw the design and fabrication of a stylistically-appropriate reliquary that would protect the Healing Cross while still enabling faithful viewers to touch it.  “We felt it was absolutely necessary that individuals could actually touch the cross while viewing it and offering their prayers and personal devotions,” explains Weitzel.  “The very real presence of the Divine made incarnate is a central tenet of our tradition, so being able to tangibly encounter a holy object that is nearly as old as Christianity itself is an holistic and deeply meaningful experience.”The location of the church was also a factor in selecting St. Mark’s as the caretaker of the Healing Cross.  “We are located in the heart of Glendale, which is a very diverse community that includes a large population of Orthodox Christians and believers whose traditions are rooted in the Eastern Church,” says Weitzel. “This cross is a sacramental object that may very well have been worn by a prelate of the Eastern Church fifteen centuries ago.”For his part, Williams is overjoyed that the Healing Cross has found a permanent home not far from where he grew up.  “I feel very blessed to play a role in uncovering a piece of history that can help bring comfort and healing to the bodies, minds and souls of people today,” says Williams.The Healing Cross is open to the public and is available for viewing and devotion at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1020 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale, California.(A description of the Healing Cross, which is part of its permanent display, follows.)“Dating to the 500s AD, the Healing Cross is a Byzantine pectoral cross from the early centuries of the Church. Many who have touched and venerated this Cross have experienced it helping to focus and channel their prayers for healing and restoration of body, mind and spirit.The face of Christ is very life-like; looking down, expressive, vulnerable yet powerful, encircled with a crown of thorns: the Lamb of God bearing the grief and sorrow of humankind. Depending on the light and angle at which the Healing Cross is viewed, the dimensions of the face appear to shift.The Healing Cross is housed at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Glendale, California. We warmly welcome you to come visit when you are in the Los Angeles area and invite you to touch the Healing Cross. As you touch it and as you pray, reflect on the thousands of faithful people who have touched it, who have been touched by it, and whose lives are part of its story.The Healing Cross has been graciously lent to the Parish Church of St. Mark by Anson Williams for the prayers and healing of all people.” Featured Jobs & Calls Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

SotoPosted Sep 5, 2013 Featured Events Youth Minister Lorton, VA David Álvarez, obispo episcopal de Puerto Rico, recientemente inhibió al sacerdote Rosalí Fernández-Pola por faltas cometidas según los cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal. La semana pasada Fernández-Pola pidió perdón por las faltas cometidas y prometió solemnemente que no incurrirá más en ellas. Álvarez en consulta con el Comité Permanente con “el ánimo y espíritu de reconciliación” y citando las palabras del Padrenuestro “perdona nuestras ofensas como nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden”, ha aceptado la carta de perdón y restitución de Fernández-Pola. En entrevista con Rapidísimas el obispo Álvarez recalcó que “su acción fue de tipo pastoral y conciliatorio pero demostrando que el Comité Permanente no actuó como debió al incluirlo en los nominados sabiendo las faltas canónicas que les había informado”.  Su inclusión en la nueva lista de candidatos es asunto del Comité Permanente, dijo Álvarez.La situación en Siria empeora cada momento y es muy posible que Estados Unidos intervenga militarmente. A pesar del dolor de miles de muertos la cadena CNN entrevistó a la esposa del dictador de Siria, Bashar al-Assad. Su nombre es Asma, es joven, nació en Londres de padres sirios, estudió en las mejores escuelas del país, es refinada, ama las joyas, el buen vivir, viste y calza las mejores marcas. Dice que su aspiración en la vida era ser “una princesa, como Diana”. Asma nació en 1975, su padre era un médico sirio y su madre una diplomática de la Embajada Siria en Londres. La pareja tiene dos hijos y una hija: Hafez, Zein y Karim. “Parece no estar muy preocupada con la situación de Siria”, dijo un reportero.El 2 de septiembre Asa Van Wormer Butterfield, sacerdote episcopal  pionero del trabajo hispano en Estados Unidos y América Latina falleció en Guadalajara. Tenía 85 años. Aún después de su retiro dedicó su tiempo ministrando en una parroquia bilingüe en Guadalajara, y entrenando a los candidatos al ministerio ordenado. Veterano de Corea, escribió buen número de folletos sobre cuidado pastoral, evangelismo, la oración y los cambios socio-políticos de América Latina. Le sobreviven su esposa Marta Ávila Muño de Guadalajara y varios hijos y nietos. Descanse en la paz del Señor el “Padre Macario”, como le conocían sus alumnos y amigos.Un informe presentado en la diócesis episcopal de Nueva York revela que muchas de sus 199 parroquias y misiones, además de escuelas y centros asistenciales,  están relacionados con iglesias alrededor del mundo. En cualquier parroquia “usted sólo tiene que caminar unos pasos para encontrarse con personas de otros países”, dice el informe y añade “queremos relacionarnos con otros cristianos en este país y alrededor del mundo”. La catedral de San Juan el Teólogo, en Manhattan, es la segunda catedral más grande del mundo y es el centro de operaciones de la diócesis de Nueva York.La Fundación Conrad Hilton ha donado 2.3 millones de dólares al periódico National Catholic Reporter para que establezca un centro que le dé voz a las miles de monjas que sirven alrededor del mundo. El periódico planea formar una red internacional de corresponsales y editores. El periódico fundado en 1964, es independiente y editado por laicos. Con frecuencia sostiene puntos de vista contrarios a la jerarquía católica.El arzobispo polaco Józef Wesolowski, 65, nuncio apostólico en la República Dominicana desde  2008 ha sido destituido de su cargo y hay una investigación en curso por casos de abuso sexual de menores, informó la agencia española EFE. La noticia fue confirmada por Federico Lombardi, director de la oficina de información del Vaticano después que Agripino Núñez Collado, rector de la Universidad Pontificia Católica Madre y Maestra, diera la información en Santo Domingo. Un nuncio apostólico o nuncio papal es un representante diplomático de la Santa Sede— no del Estado de la Ciudad del Vaticano— con rango de embajador.El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby y uno de sus predecesores George Carey, han expresado preocupación por la escalada bélica en Siria y han dicho que una acción militar de parte de occidente puede tener graves consecuencias para la humanidad. Welby dijo que compartía la preocupación del Primer Ministro sobre el uso de armas biológicas pero que estaba contra la intervención de Inglaterra en el conflicto.Un apagón de gran magnitud dejó sin luz eléctrica a más del 70 por ciento de la población de Venezuela.

A chat with Toby Flood as England launch their new kit

first_imgTuesday Nov 2, 2010 A chat with Toby Flood as England launch their new kit Ahead of England’s new kit launch today, we caught up with with Toby Flood to get his thoughts leading up to the Autumn Tests, his feelings on his personal development, and his thoughts on social media. This is what he had to say. RD: Exciting few weeks ahead ready for some bruising encounters against the likes of the All Blacks and the Springboks? TF: Definitely, there is nothing like tests against the best in the world and the guys are really looking forward to it. Weve had a good couple of weeks training so hopefully we can get out and play with in good spirits and get on top of them. RD: The fans want to see some of the flair that can be seen in the Premiership – Is there a feeling that the squad will play a more expansive style this autumn? I hope so, I think weve got the personnel to do it, obviously weather depending, its the autumn so it always difficult but we like to think we can go out there and chuck the ball around and have a real good crack at them so its definitely the plan. RD: Who would you like to have playing alongside you at 12? I dont really mind. There has been a few knocks and bumps from the last Premiership games so well have to wait and see, but obviously its always pretty competitive there so its up to the coaches. Ill just keep my head down and see who it is! RD: What are your thoughts on twitter and most importantly, do you tweet? No, I dont tweet at all, and I am not of Facebook either. By all accounts it seems to be good fun but its not for me. RD: Is your preparation mentally quite different for test rugby than club rugby? Not really, I think Ive learnt a lot in the past few years, playing quite a few high profile games and stuff and most of the time its just the same – I want to sit back and enjoy it and have fun and I think thats really helped me as a player so the key is not to get to wound up and excited about these things and just to go out there and crack on! RD: Whats it like having a guy like Jonny Wilkinson breathing down your neck? Its awesome really. Hes a good bloke, a good guy to hang round with and obviously pretty competitive too so all in all hes a great competitor he tries hard and always wants to be the best he can be. RD: Which element of your game have you improved the most in recent times? All of it really, probably the mind set probably my psychological side of things in terms of control, like controlling the game and controlling the environment were in. I think thats been the biggest step forward due to the environment Ive been playing rugby in and also myself maturing as a player and a person so I think the psychological side of things have definitely taken a step forward. RD: Thoughts on Gavin Henson being brought into the Saracens setup as a flyhalf? I guess itll take him time to get back onto the field because of the programme but ultimately hes a guy who will be playing at a very top level again and who is a very good player. RD: On that note, would you ever take part in Strictly if asked to? (Laughs) No, I have just got no ability to move what so ever! RD: Any words of encouragement for Phil Vickery after his gutting news? He was one of Englands great rugby players and a great guy to have around so its incredibly sad. Hes had a very good run and hes been world class for some time, its shame that it has to come to an end but hell always be remembered very fondly. RD: What do you think of the new England kits? I saw both kits for the first time a couple of months ago now at a Nike photo shoot and that was really cool, I really like it. Most of the guys have tried it on and there have been lots of really good responses so all in all its a good piece of kit and hopefully England will be as successful wearing it.
