Laidlaw pays tribute to record breaking fans

first_img“Last night’s game was the perfect example of the fans playing their part in another great win. We all knew that, no matter what, we needed that fourth try to get the bonus point and the noise they created as we piled on the pressure was awesome.“It’s fantastic to make it this far but we’re not finished yet. There’s a lot of belief and talent in this young team and we’re determined to go further than any Scottish team has before and book a place in the semis in front of another record-breaking crowd.”Edinburgh Rugby’s quarter-final tie with Toulouse is a rematch of the club’s last and only other foray into the knockout stages of the competition in 2004 and takes place on Easter weekend (6, 7, 8 April), with the date and kick-off time to confirmed by tournament organiser ERC later this week.Tickets for the first ever Heineken Cup quarter-final to take place on Scottish soil went on sale immediately after last night’s game with supporters welcoming the return of the advance purchase adult ticket of £15 and the half-price student ticket (£5) which saw close to 1500 of the budding scholars head to Murrayfield last night. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Captain Greig Laidlaw today hailed Edinburgh Rugby’s double record-breaking support after the club charged into the last eight of the Heineken Cup at Murrayfield last night.An impeccable kicking display from the steely-nerved Borderer recorded 14 of the club’s 34-points in the historic win over London Irish (34-11).That victory saw Edinburgh top the group and secure a home quarter-final against four-time champions, Toulouse, at Murrayfield on Easter weekend (6/7/8 April).The drama played out in front of a Scottish Heineken Cup record crowd of 10,892. The club also hold the Scottish record for the RaboDirect PRO12 after more than 13 thousand (13,246) turned out at Murrayfield for the inter-city derby against Glasgow Warriors last month.Laidlaw said: “It’s a tremendous personal achievement for the players and coaches to secure a home quarter-final and we’re delighted to be able to repay the support of the fans who have been right there with us throughout the group stages at some incredible matches.center_img HEINEKEN CUP QUARTER-FINALS (weekend of 6/7/8 April)Munster Rugby v Ulster RugbyLeinster Rugby v Cardiff BluesEdinburgh Rugby v ToulouseSaracens v ASM Clermont AuvergneHEINEKEN CUP SEMI-FINALS (28/29 April)Semi-final 1: Saracens or ASM Clermont Auvergne V Leinster Rugby or Cardiff BluesSemi-final 2: Munster Rugby or Ulster Rugby V Edinburgh Rugby or Toulouselast_img read more

Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgYou can’t accidentally neck-roll an opponent and it’s not acceptable for this practice to continue, so I’m calling for an automatic yellow card on each and every occasion it occurs.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Soaring: Christian Wade scores against Worcester, one of his 14 Premiership tries this season (Getty) Williams, 40, played it beautifully, showing his skills but setting up tries for others, and he now hopes to play a part in the biggest game in Amman’s history – the Bowl final against Caerphilly on 16 April.He sustained a jaw fracture in the match and spent much of Saturday night at A&E, so all fingers crossed that he makes the final and gets what one presumes will be one last outing as a player at the home of Welsh rugby.Young at heart: Shane Williams is still shining on the junior club scene when work commitments allowRhys lightningStaying in Wales, Rhys Patchell made a spectacular return to action for the Scarlets, scoring two tries in their 26-10 defeat of Edinburgh.The fly-half hadn’t played since damaging ankle ligaments on New Year’s Day but he showed a terrific turn of pace when collecting Hadleigh Parkes’s pass in the fourth minute to set Scarlets on their way.His 16-point performance prompted talk of a possible Wales call for their summer tour, and conjecture that he could do a job at 12 for his country outside Dan Biggar or Sam Davies. Time will tell.Back with a bang: Rhys Patchell scores one of his two tries against Edinburgh (Huw Evans Agency)Pressing decisionAustralian referee Rohan Hoffmann has had his share of criticism, including being demoted after a poor performance in a Waratahs-Sharks game in 2015.But it seems the former Portugal fly-half was correct in his awarding of a bizarre try in the Crusaders-Western Force match in Christchurch.The Force had possession at a ruck on their try-line and with hands on top of the ball, which was behind the line. But Crusaders lock Luke Romano pounced on it and Hoffman gave the score.The law states that if the ball is on the ground a player must ‘press down’ on it, so holding the ball in your hands whilst it’s on the deck doesn’t constitute sufficient downward pressure to count as a ‘grounding’ of the ball.Tough but fair for the Force, who trailed 28-10 after Romano’s converted score and went on to lose 45-17.“You sure, ref?” Western Force players consult Rohan Hoffmann during their defeat in ChristchurchTHE SINNERSNeck painThere is refereeing inconsistency being applied to the neck roll – the dangerous clear-out at the ruck when a player is grasped around the neck and thrown aside.There were doubtless other examples at the weekend but let’s highlight two: Blues back-row Jimmy Tupou did a neck roll on Bulls’ Jesse Kriel while Saracens’ Jackson Wray did likewise on his outstanding Bath adversary Francois Louw.Nic Berry yellow-carded Tupou but Wayne Barnes let Wray remain, and I know which response I preferred.Doing time: Blues’ Jimmy Tupou sits in the sin-bin after his neck-roll offence against the Bulls in Auckland (Getty)It’s approaching two years since World Rugby demanded a crackdown on neck rolls and that’s plenty of time for players to have adapted. TAGS: Highlight THE SAINTSHeinz catch-upThe sun came out at the weekend and the players captured the mood, with a number of belting tries.Cardiff Blues scrum-half Tomas Williams was twice on the end of sweeping length-of-field counter-attacks at Leinster, while Alex Goode’s try against Bath began when he gave Ben Tapuai the slip in his own 22 and featured a glorious one-two between Chris Ashton and Richard Wigglesworth.But a personal favourite has to be the Jonny May try at Bristol on Friday night, because it started with Willi Heinz only just preventing the ball going dead at the back of his own in-goal area.Scrambling back, the Gloucester captain kept the ball alive and set off on a counter. He passed to Tom Marshall, who put England wing May away down the left for a try scored with the clock showing red.It brought Gloucester a bonus point – and who knows how important that might prove to be?Cherry on top: Jonny May (left) celebrates his late try with Gloucester team-mate Charlie SharplesChristian soldiers onBristol lost that one 32-14 and their Aviva Premiership status hangs by a frayed thread.On a weekend when they would have expected to close the gap on Worcester at the bottom of the Premiership, they instead saw it increase to nine points after Worcester commendably picked up two bonus points at Wasps, despite losing Bryce Heem to a red card just after half-time.A fine effort by Warriors and well done, too, to Wasps for clinching a semi-final berth before April has arrived.Nasty fall: Bryce Heem was sent off for causing Willie le Roux’s painful landing at the Ricoh (Getty)Christian Wade scored two tries, the first a typically slithery effort when several Worcester players failed to bring home down, and he looks to have the Premiership’s top try-scorer award sewn up.He’s on 14 for the season, four clear of James Short and Semesa Rokoduguni, and if he stays top of the pile it will be the first time he’s won that accolade outright, having tied with Tom Varndell in 2012-13.Head held highYou could see just how popular Aaron Mauger is with the Leicester players in their pulsating 36-31 win at Northampton.The Tigers players hung in there during a difficult first period when Saints scored three tries and edged home via Owen Williams’s two late penalties.When the final whistle sounded, the hugs for Mauger told the story and the New Zealander – turfed out to make way for the return of another popular figure, Matt O’Connor – departs with Leicester in the play-off positions and with the Anglo-Welsh Cup in the trophy cabinet.Parting gift: Aaron Mauger, Tigers’ departing DoR, with the Anglo-Welsh Cup (CameraSport/Getty)One more dream for ShaneShane Williams played 49 Test matches at the Millennium Stadium (now Principality Stadium) during his scintillating Wales career, but potentially he faces one more visit that could just be the most special of them all.The wing wizard came off the bench – replacing his brother-in-law Gavin Lewis after 18 minutes – to help Amman United beat Cardigan 29-3 in the WRU National Bowl semi-final at Lampeter.

El Obispo de Arizona ‘mesuradamente complacido’ con el fallo del…

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Belleville, IL Featured Jobs & Calls Miembros de ‘Arizona Prometida’ [Promise Arizona] celebran una vigilia de oración antes de que el fallo del Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos, respecto a la controversial ley de inmigración de Arizona, SB1070, se conociera en el Capitolio de Arizona, en Phoenix, el 25 de junio. El Tribunal Supremo abrogó el lunes algunas de las medidas fundamentales de la ofensiva de Arizona contra los inmigrantes [ilegales], pero dijo que una porción de la ley muy debatida sobre la verificación del estatus de personas sospechosas podía seguir en vigor. Foto AP/Ross D. Franklin[Episcopal News Service]El obispo Kirk Smith de Arizona dijo estar “mesuradamente complacido” respecto al fallo de referencia del Tribunal Supremo el 25 de junio, que derogó la mayor parte de una controversial ley estatal que victimizaba a los inmigrantes.“Como alguien que labora y ora por una política de inmigración más justa, estoy mesuradamente complacido con el fallo del Tribunal Supremo sobre la controversial ley SB 1070”, dijo Smith, un clamoroso opositor de la medida, en un comunicado de prensa.El fallo del tribunal, de 5 votos a favor y 3 en contra [con una abstención] bloqueó tres de las cuatro áreas que se habían impugnado de la ley, pero dejó en pie la más controversial, la cláusula que han llamado de “muestre sus documentos”, que autoriza a la policía estatal a verificar el estatus migratorio de cualquier persona que detenga si existiera una sospecha razonable de que la persona se encuentra ilegalmente en Estados Unidos.Sin embargo, el fallo también advirtió que el gobierno federal tiene la autoridad última para decidir a quien detener y deportar por violación de las leyes migratorias.La opinión de la mayoría escrita por el magistrado Anthony Kennedy bloqueó partes de la ley que habrían convertido en una falta o delito menor el que los inmigrantes no portaran una identificación que dijera si se encontraban legalmente en Estados Unidos. Dijo también que el estado no puede incriminar a personas indocumentadas por solicitar empleo y no puede arrestar a alguien basándose tan sólo en la sospecha de que la persona se encuentra ilegalmente en este país.Los magistrados Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas y Samuel Alito sostuvieron las opiniones discrepantes. La magistrada Elena Kagan se recusó aduciendo que ella se había ocupado del caso mientras trabajaba en el Departamento de Justicia antes de su nominación al Tribunal Supremo.Smith calificó el fallo del alto tribunal como un paso en la dirección correcta, pero dijo que habría deseado que los magistrados hubieran ido más lejos, añadiendo que el fallo deja “mucho trabajo por hacer para garantizar que los inmigrantes que viven dentro de la ley en nuestro país sean tratados de una manera justa y humana.“Por ejemplo, la cláusula de la ley de “muestre sus documentos”, que el tribunal dejó en pie, todavía tiene grandes posibilidades de permitir la discriminación racial y otros abusos”, afirmó. “Queda aún mucho por hacer para garantizar que todas nuestras leyes migratorias respetan la dignidad de todo ser humano”.“La Iglesia Episcopal está comprometida con políticas públicas que aspiran a un sistema migratorio más humano en Estados Unidos”, escribió Alexander D. Baumgarten, director de relaciones gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal, en un correo electrónico enviado a ENS. “Durante los últimos dos años, la Iglesia ha expresado constante preocupación por la ley de Arizona, porque hace la vida más difícil, y a nuestras comunidades menos acogedoras, para los que vienen a esta nación a construir una vida mejor para ellos y sus descendientes. La aplicación de las actuales leyes de inmigración, si bien constituyen una obligación para los líderes electos, deberían aplicarse de un modo que salvaguarden los derechos civiles de todas las personas y la dignidad de todos los hijos de Dios.“Respetamos el papel del Tribunal Supremo como el árbitro de las cuestiones constitucionales en Estados Unidos, y nos sentimos agradecidos de que algunos de los aspectos más trascendentes de la ley de Arizona ya no están en vigor”, prosiguió Baumgarten. “Seguimos preocupados del impacto de las estipulaciones de “muestre sus documentos” que el tribunal ha ratificado, e instamos a los legisladores de Arizona, y de todo el país, a que reconsideren esta desafortunada política y otras semejantes. En definitiva, el debate sobre esta ley refuerza la necesidad del Congreso y el Ejecutivo de emprender el trabajo de una reforma de inmigración global”.La legislatura de Arizona aprobó la SB1070 en 2010; luego un juez federal emitió un dictamen preliminar el 28 de julio de 2010 por el cual bloqueaba la ley un día antes de que entrara en vigor. El fallo de este tribunal fue respaldado por el tribunal de apelaciones del IX Circuito y entonces los funcionarios del estado apelaron al Tribunal Supremo.El Departamento de Justicia de EE.UU. ha argüido que las políticas federales de inmigración están por encima de cualesquiera leyes estatales, y que [la de Arizona] alienta la discriminación racial al permitir que los agentes de la autoridad exijan pruebas de ciudadanía si sospechan que alguien está ilegalmente en el país.Potencialmente, el fallo podría repercutir en las leyes de unos 20 estados, desde Pensilvania hasta Utah, en los cuales se han aprobado, o están en el proceso de aprobarse, legislaciones semejantes que tienen por objetivo detener y deportar a personas indocumentadas. En otros lugares los funcionarios públicos estaban revisando la ley para determinar su impacto en dichas legislaciones.El fallo se produjo después de que un estudio del Centro de Investigaciones Pew, dado a conocer el 23 de abril, revelara que por primera vez en décadas salen más personas indocumentadas del país de las que entran.Smith dijo que no tenía idea de ninguna manifestación pública inmediata planeada por líderes de la Iglesia local, pero añadió, “yo esperaría que nadie vea la lucha por los derechos civiles en Arizona como algo que se acabó. No importa cuáles sean sus opiniones en este asunto, les pediría que mantuvieran en sus oraciones a los hermanos episcopales de Arizona cuyas vidas se ven diariamente afectadas por la lucha para encontrarle una justa solución a este problema”.— La Rda.

Goff to the Virginia episcopate upon her ordination and consecration as bishop suffragan on July 28 at St. Paul’s, Richmond. Diocese of Virginia photo/Brandon Martin[Diocese of Virginia] Susan Ellyn Goff was ordained and consecrated July 28 as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Virginia at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Richmond.More than 700 people gathered to celebrate the consecration of Virginia’s first female bishop.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was the chief consecrator. Co-consecrators were the Rt. Rev. Shannon S. Johnston, bishop of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. Edwin F. Gulick Jr., assistant bishop of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. Peter James Lee, retired bishop of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. David C. Jones, retired bishop suffragan of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens, bishop suffragan of Connecticut; and the Rev. James Mauney, bishop of the Virginia Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The preacher was the Rt. Rev. Richard Blackburn, Bishop of Warrington, in the United Kingdom.Most recently, Goff served as canon to the ordinary of the diocese, working with Johnston on such matters as the ordination process and disciplinary matters.A graduate of Douglass College, New Brunswick, N.J., and Union Theological Seminary, New York, N.Y., Goff has spent her 32-year ministry in Virginia. Prior to joining the diocesan staff, she served at St. Christopher’s Church in Springfield; Immanuel, Old Church in Mechanicsville; St. Catherine’s School in Richmond; and St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock.“I am thrilled to see Susan Goff joining the episcopate in Virginia,” Johnston said prior to the ordination and consecration. “She brings great wisdom, knowledge, grace and discretion to the position.”As bishop suffragan, Goff will support mission congregations and will provide day-to-day oversight of Dayspring, the diocesan-wide initiative to bring vision and strategy surrounding the properties returned to the diocese following a recent legal dispute. A fluent speaker of Spanish, she will also work to support multicultural and ethnic ministries.“For me, what the Kingdom of God is all about, the very visual image I have of it is of the heavenly banquet: men, women, children, people of all nationalities, languages, cultures, ages, genders, physical abilities, sexual orientations, the wealthy and the poor are gathered around the table,” Goff said in an article in the summer edition of the Virginia Episcopalian. “Since that’s what the Kingdom of God is, then that’s what the Church is called to be.“For the Church to be doing the mission of Christ in the world,” she added, “we are therefore called to minister to and with a wider variety of people than ever before. We’re on the cusp of shifting from … ministry ‘to’ to ministry ‘with.’”Goff was elected April 21. General Convention gave her the consent to her ordination and consecration, as currently required of all bishops elected within 120 days of the beginning of convention.

First ceremony for Archbishop of Canterbury’s new awards

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET [Lambeth Palace] The first recipients of a new set of non-academic awards for outstanding service to the church were recognized in a ceremony at Lambeth Palace March 31.Archbishop Justin Welby gave out the new awards, which recognize outstanding service in different fields, including those of Archbishop Justin’s ministry priorities: prayer and the religious life; reconciliation; and evangelism and witness.The new suite of awards consist of three existing Lambeth Awards – the Lambeth Cross, the Canterbury Cross and the Cross of St Augustine – and six new awards named after previous holders of the office of Archbishop of Canterbury.Forty people received the awards, many Christians but some of other faiths. Recipients included religious, political and community leaders, musicians and others.The medals were made from Fairtrade silver by the London firm Cred Jewellery.Opening the ceremony, the Archbishop explained why he wished to give these awards. “The first reason is that I want people who make outstanding contributions through their engagement with the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion to know that they are recognized.

For example, in three African countries—Burundi, Mozambique and Tanzania—where they run vaccination programs, PWRDF partners have vaccinated 410,000 children under the age of five in three years, he said—an especially high number considering the programs are run in far-flung rural areas, Postma added. In Mozambique, child mortality rates during the same three years decreased from 26% to 5%.In Canada, PWRDF raised $165,000 in donations for Fort McMurray wildfire relief, he said. The fund has also been placing more importance on support for Indigenous communities, he said—“support that’s respectful, support that’s honourable, support that’s responsive to needs on the ground.”Among its recent projects for Canadian Indigenous people, he said, is a two-year immersion course  in the Mohawk language, in the Mohawk community of Kahnawake, near Montreal.One thing that’s surprised him since starting at PWRDF, he said, is the enormous network of volunteers it has to draw on—1,600 according to a recent count.“I have to say, having been with a lot of other organizations, that is a really enviable number,” he said.General Synod also heard from Zaida Bastos, director of PWRDF’s development partnership program, about its maternal, newborn and child health program. Since the year 2000, she said, there has been a decrease of more than 50% in preventable child death worldwide. However, rates of maternal and child death in sub-Saharan Africa remain very high, Bastos said.PWRDF’s maternal, newborn and child health program operates, through local community health workers, in 524 villages in five African countries, she said. These community health workers constantly accompany pregnant and new mothers and their children, ensuring they get the medical attention they need to survive and be healthy.In addition to its actual accomplishments, Postma said he also really liked that PWRDF’s vision is about more than just providing physical aid.“I’m really excited that PWRDF has that bedrock commitment to rights, human rights…it’s about each and every one of us made in the image of God,” he said.

Educación teológica desde la realidad Latinoamericana

Para lograrlo  —según dicen los miembros de la comisión— el primer desafío está en la preparación de clérigos y laicos.“Los seminarios no pueden enfocarse en un solo aspecto, se debe integrar la teología con la realidad actual, con todo lo que toca a nuestra sociedad. La pastoral se debe mover en diversos campos y procurar, por medio del mensaje del evangelio, formar, cambiar y transformar la sociedad. Pero para ello se necesita una buena formación”, afirmó el obispo Julio Holguín, presidente de la CETALC.Como primer paso para encaminar la formación, tras un encuentro a finales de agosto, los miembros de la CETALC han acordado homologar los planes de estudio en toda América Latina.“Consideramos que al ser una misma iglesia, el caminar de la educación teológica no puede  realizarse de manera fragmentada. Generar un proceso de acción y reflexión visualizando los desafíos a los cuales nos enfrentamos en este siglo puede ayudarnos a generar una perspectiva más amplia y [a dar] una respuesta como bloque”, explicó el Rdo. Eduardo Chinchilla, representante de Costa Rica en la CETALC.El obispo Holguín manifestó que otro de los desafíos que han analizado como CETALC es la identidad, el ser episcopal en un contexto latinoamericano es un reto. Según el obispo Holguín, en muchas regiones se puede ver la influencia de otras denominaciones religiosas dentro de las iglesias anglicanas. En otras comunidades, sin embargo, se puede ver a los clérigos luchando por mantener la identidad episcopal pero olvidando el contexto en el que se desarrollan.Respecto a este desafío, según el Rdo. Chinchilla, uno de los grandes acuerdos en el último encuentro de la CETALC fue la futura publicación de un libro sobre la historia del anglicanismo en toda América Latina y el Caribe “para que se use como libro de texto en toda la iglesia.”Mayor presencia de las mujeresLa Iglesia Episcopal ha revolucionado mucho con su apertura a grupos históricamente marginados como las mujeres y la comunidad LGBT. Sin embargo, la presencia de mujeres en la formación teológica es reciente en Latinoamérica.“Para mi uno de los puntos importantes del último encuentro es que había mujeres encargadas de la educación teológica representando a algunos países. En el pasado, en esa reunión uno veía sólo hombres, pero en esta ocasión hubo más presencia de mujeres”, dijo a ENS la Rda. Glenda McQueen, funcionaria de la Iglesia Episcopal para América Latina y el Caribe.Cuba, México, El Salvador y Brasil tienen a mujeres sacerdotes como directoras de educación teológica. “En mi equipo de trabajo soy la única mujer, pero nunca he sentido que me traten diferente. Apoyan mi trabajo y aprecian mis cualidades”, expresó la Rda. Irma Guerra de Alvarado, directora de educación teológica de El Salvador.De hecho, su trabajo en El Salvador en este momento es muy importante, dado que la iglesia episcopal tiene previsto abrir su primer seminario en 2017 y la formación de las futuras generaciones está en sus manos. La Rda. Guerra fue la primera sacerdote salvadoreña formada y ordenada en San Salvador. “No somos muchas, pero esperamos que con oportunidades de formación en el país, el número de mujeres religiosas y laicas aumente”, dijo la Rda. Guerra.El obispo Holguín reconoció que en medio de la cultura latinoamericana —donde el machismo está muy arraigado—  el camino para las mujeres episcopales no ha sido fácil, pero se ha avanzado.“Hay mucho por luchar aún, en especial en algunas zonas de Suramérica, porque no se ha logrado que las mujeres logren la plenitud de [la] ordenación; pero hemos avanzado y no hay retroceso. Se tiene claro que el ministerio y el trabajo pastoral es una tarea para hombres y mujeres. Todos estamos llamados por igual”, afirmó el obispo.Realidad social y formaciónLatinoamérica y el Caribe enfrentan hoy más que nunca problemas sociales como la pobreza, la migración, la violencia, el desempleo, la crisis política, etc. La CETALC considera que los religiosos y laicos deben estar preparados para responder a estos problemas desde la fe y el trabajo pastoral. Para ello se espera reformar y homologar todos los planes de estudio de la región, mientras tanto la Comisión continúa con sus esfuerzos por extender las oportunidades de educación mediante becas.La Rda. McQueen explicó que se continuará otorgando becas contempladas en seis categorías. Estás van desde becas individuales para visitar Tierra Santa, becas de investigación, subvenciones a diócesis e incluso algunos apoyos financieros para educación por provincia.Según el Rdo. Chinchilla, las provincias también han decidido compartir recursos para la formación. De hecho, se planteó la posibilidad de intercambios de docentes y de estudiantes, al igual que de recursos bibliográficos.  Brasil ya puso a disposición de todos los seminarios participantes su banco de recursos en español y portugués desde su página web.El obispo Holguín espera que estos esfuerzos contribuyan a un mejor trabajo pastoral en Latinoamérica y el Caribe. Sin embargo, reconoce que ante la realidad de los países de la zona, muchas veces los clérigos ya formados emigran a Estados Unidos u otros países.“Nos alegra que nuestros clérigos tengan buena acogida en EE.UU. Vemos con satisfacción que muchos sirvan a la comunidad latina allá. Aunque lo ideal sería que también encontraran buenas oportunidades en sus propios países”, manifestó el obispo.La CETALC funciona desde los años 70, por lo que cientos de clérigos se han formado con su apoyo. La Comisión prepara en este momento un estudio centrado en el impacto que ha tenido la educación teológica en Latinoamérica. Se espera que el informe final se presente a finales de este año.
