(Vatican Radio) Leaders of the Anglican Communion are winding up a meeting in Canterbury on Friday after agreeing to temporary restrictions on the Episcopal Church in the United States for its position on same-sex marriage.Responding to the decision, the head of the Vatican's Council for ecumenical relations says he is "grateful" the bishops have excluded any more permanent divisions which could hinder the search for reconciliation between the two Churches .Philippa Hitchen takes a closer look:Listen  At a press conference ahead of the official conclusion of the meeting on Saturday, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby reaffirmed the unanimous commitment of all the Anglican leaders to uphold the unity of the worldwide Communion, which numbers around 85 million members in 165 countries.But in a communique the Primates note that recent developments in the Episcopal Church regarding the recognition of same-sex relationships represents “a fundamental...
With United Nations humanitarian teams witnessing scenes in Syria that “haunt the soul,” the UN chief  said on Thursday the situation is “utterly unconscionable,” and warned that the use of starvation as a weapon during conflict is a war crime.  “Perhaps nothing more urgently reflects the need to act than the harrowing scenes from Madaya,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Ban told reporters at a press conference in New York following remarks to the UN General Assembly highlighting his 2016 priorities.For months, the Syrian town has been besieged by parties to the conflict – a war soon entering its sixth year. UN relief teams and their partners have only recently been granted access by the Government to deliver much needed food and medical aid to thousands of people trapped inside besieged towns like Madaya.  “Shocking depths of inhumanity” was how Ban described the situation there.  Relief staff who have entere...

Indonesia’s Church leaders have condemned Thursday’s terrorist attack in their capital Jakarta and are calling for a concerted effort across religions and societies to help end the scourge of terrorism.  "We have to work hand in hand to protect our people, particularly our young people, from any ideology that can harm society," Father Paulus Christian Siswantoko, executive secretary of the Indonesian bishops commission for justice, peace and of pastoral care of migrants, told UCANEWS. Seven people were killed in the three-hour siege near a busy shopping district despite multiple blasts and a gunfight, and five of them were the attackers themselves. The terrorist group known as the Islamic State, or IS, claimed responsibility for the attacks. The Indonesian Catholic bishops’ conference has not issued a statement about the attack yet but “we at the commission see the incident as being a lesson for us,” said Father Siswantoko.&nb...
