Byzantine Catholic liturgy celebrated on campus

Byzantine Catholic liturgy celebrated on campus

first_imgAs Notre Dame strives to expand its international profile and strengthen its Catholic identity, the University has recently found a way to do both simultaneously by hosting a different type of liturgy on campusBeginning this fall, Byzantine Catholic Divine Liturgy is offered the first Sunday of every month at 10 a.m. at the chapel of Mary, Seat of Wisdom in Malloy Hall. The first liturgy was a great success, with a packed chapel filled with a congregation of roughly 50 Notre Dame students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the larger South Bend community, Fr. Khaled Anatolios said.While “Roman Catholic” and “Catholic” are often treated as interchangeable terms, there are millions of Catholics worldwide who do not practice the Roman Rite, and are therefore technically not Roman Catholic. While traditionally found in the Middle-East, these “Eastern Catholic” churches have spread westwards, with the Byzantine Eastern Catholic Church now present on Notre Dame’s campus.“Having this liturgy gives people a chance to come together and form a community and practice according to the way that they’re used to … there are people on campus who have this Byzantine background and they’ve never had a place before where they could worship in the tradition they grew up in,” Anatolios said.Interest in offering a Byzantine Catholic Divine Liturgy was first sparked when Anatolios, a priest of the Greek Catholic Melkite Church, came to Notre Dame.“There used to be a small Melkite community in town, but then they didn’t have a priest. When my bishop knew that I was coming here … he [wanted] to have a Byzantine Catholic presence on the campus of the most prominent Catholic university in America,” Anatolios said.This enthusiasm was quickly matched by figures on the campus, Anatolios said, as both he and the Byzantine Catholic liturgy were welcomed to campus with a profound hospitality.“I met [University President Fr. John Jenkins], at a new faculty orientation and when he found out that I was a Byzantine Catholic priest he was very enthusiastic. … He got me in touch with Fr. William Lies, who’s the vice president for church affairs and then he put me in touch with Fr. Pete McCormick, who is the [director] of campus ministry … and arranged for me to have this [liturgy]. I’ve had nothing but the greatest support from everybody on campus,” Anatolios said.He said the Greek Catholic churches have their roots in the oldest Christian history when various different regions celebrated Christian ceremonies in their own fashions. Anatolios said these different rites had crystallized by the fourth century, establishing different “liturgical families” around major urban centers. While the prayers, the languages and the styles of the services may have been different, this didn’t cause any problems or disruptions of Communion within the Church for many years, Anatolios said.This unity in the Church was finally disrupted by the doctrinal disputes of the Council of Chalcedon in 454 and the growing distance between the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, Anatolios said, which climaxed in the Great Schism of 1054. While the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches remain distinct, several bodies within the Eastern Orthodox Church reestablished communion with Rome over the centuries, Anatolios said.“The Byzantine Catholic churches … follow the Byzantine Rite that originated in Constantinople and reunited with Rome and reestablished communion with Rome,” Anatolios said, “It’s easy to break communion, but its very hard to reestablish it once its broken. The Eastern Catholic churches came about because there was the recognition that there really aren’t serious doctrinal differences that should divide us.”Anatolios said some differences between the Byzantine and Roman rites include differently worded prayers, a greater emphasis on icons, singing and bodily movement, and perhaps most surprising to those raised in the Roman Rite, married priests such as Anatolios himself. Because of the ritual similarities between the Byzantine Rite churches and the Orthodox churches, many feel the Eastern Catholic Churches can serve as a connection between Rome and other parts of the Christian world.Anatolios said he grew up in Egypt and has connections with various members of the Coptic and Orthodox Christian communities.“As a community that follows orthodox traditions, liturgical traditions, spiritual traditions … we feel like a bridge between the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches,” Anatolios said. He will also be on a panel at the American Academy of Religion regarding Eastern Orthodox theology.Anatolios emphasized his gratitude toward the warm welcome he has received on campus and hoped this new service on campus would help Notre Dame further connect with the tremendous vitality and variety of the international Church.“I think that’s why Fr. Jenkins and Fr. Lies were so enthusiastic, because I think that they want [Notre Dame] to express the full diversity and all the richness of the Catholic tradition,” Anatolios said.Tags: Byzantine catholic liturgy, Byzantine Eastern Catholic Churchlast_img read more

Trail Mix – The Brother Brothers

Trail Mix – The Brother Brothers

first_imgMy Best Albums of 2018 list begins and ends right here.Boy, howdy. Some People I Know, from The Brother Brothers – David and Adam Moss – is a stunner. It now sits atop my list of records released in the last twelve months after just one listen.Barely two songs in, I knew. Adam and David have found it, that special something, that indelible bond, that only forms between siblings making music together.David and Adam – identical twins – are poised to ascend to stardom on the contemporary folk music scene. This new collection of songs is awash with cello, fiddle, hollow body guitar, and brilliant harmonies reminiscent of the height of the sixties folk revival.I recently caught up with the Moss brothers to chat about the new record, New Years Eve plans, and what it’s like making music with your sibling.BRO – Was there a song or album that you guys connected over that really got you thinking you could make music together?TBB – David and I have connected over a lot of music. However, when we really started digging into the Delmore Brothers and Jim & Jesse, we knew we could be a brother band ourselves.BRO – In five words or less, finish this statement: The best thing about making music with my brother is . . . . . TBB –  . . . . it’s easy to communicate aesthetic.BRO – We are featuring “Frankie” on this month’s Trail Mix. What’s the story behind the song?TBB – David worked at the wonder Sunny’s Bar in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and during his time there, he watched the people who make that neighborhood so special slowly disappear from their barstools due to the real estate investment. Those who gave the community its true value could no longer afford to live there. The song is a reflection of conversations and experiences with these people, the ones who gave their hearts to a place, only to watch money take so much of it away.BRO – Got a favorite band of brothers?TBB – Well, to be honest, we seriously love The Secret Sisters. Their harmony and stage delivery is something to be seriously admired. But, if we had to say brother band, we’d say The Delmore Brothers. However, that isn’t to say we don’t seriously love The Louvin Brothers, The Everly Brothers, Jim & Jesse, and The Barr Brothers. Those dudes are modern awesome.BRO – New Years Eve among the family and friends in Upstate New York. Anything fun planned?TBB – We’re playing first night in Saranac Lake. It’ gonna be a hell of a time. I hear our good friend Miss Tess is gonna be there, and we can’t wait to do some dancing and ringing in the new year with her band!The Brother Brothers’ tour schedule is pretty quiet through December until that New Years Eve get down on Saranac Lake.My suggestion, in the meantime, would be to grab a copy of Some People I Know and soak in the vintage harmonies as the weather grows colder and the days darken earlier. This record is the perfect companion for the onset of winter.For more information on The Brother Brothers, when they will hit a stage near you, or how you can grab a copy of the new record, be sure to check out their website.And be sure to take a listen to “Frankie,” along with new tracks from William Elliot Whitmore, Granville Automatic, Belle Plain, and many more on this month’s Trail Mix.last_img read more

Outdoor Updates: Get your kids outside

Outdoor Updates: Get your kids outside

first_imgA recent study published in the journal PNAS found that growing up near vegetation is associated with an up to 55 percent lower risk of mental health disorders in adulthood. The study is the largest ever look at the association between mental health and green spaces. Researchers at Denmark’s Aarhus University combined satellite imagery dating back to 1985 with health and demographic data from one million people in the Danish population to understand the effects of how access to nature impacts our mental health. After accounting for socioeconomic factors, researchers found that growing up near green space reduced the risk for mental illness anywhere from 15 to 55 percent, depending on the specific illness. “Green space seemed to have an association that was similar in strength to other known influences on mental health, like history of mental health disorders in the family, or socioeconomic status,” said Kristine Engemann, the biologist who led the study. Scientists have successfully sequenced the genomes of coastal redwoods and giant sequoias Want your kids to be happy adults? Get them outside as children. Duke Energy to fight N.C. coal ash cleanup ordercenter_img The first step of a five-year project to develop the tools necessary to study the forests’ genomic diversity has been achieved with the successful mapping of genomes from coastal redwoods and giant sequoias. The coast redwood genome is the second largest ever mapped and is nine times larger than the human genome. The hope is that sequencing the genomes of these giant trees will lead to conservation and restoration opportunities for the species. Scientists say that the redwood forest is not healthy and that having the resources that a medical doctor has for their human patients will help make the trees healthy again. Over the past 150 years, over 95 percent of the ancient coast redwood range and one-third of the giant sequoia range have succumbed to logging. For the record, the largest genome ever mapped belongs to the axolotl, a North American salamander. Duke Energy is fighting its order from the DEQ to dig up all of its coal ash from unlined storage bins where toxic chemicals like mercury, lead and arsenic are leaking into local water supplies. Duke is challenging the order, saying that the DEQ did not consider all of the scientific evidence when it ordered the energy giant to clean up the coal ash from six storage basins deemed low-risk, which the company would prefer to cover with a waterproof cap. Duke has 14 coal ash sites around the state of North Carolina and projects that the cost of digging up the coal ash at 8 of them will cost $5.2 billion. Excavating the additional six coal ash storage bins could raise the total cost to $10 billion, a price that Duke isn’t willing to pay without a fight. Last year the North Carolina Supreme Court ruled that Duke could collect $545 million in cleanup costs from its customers rather than its shareholders. last_img read more

UK roundup: NAPF, PMI, Newton IM, Cambridge, State Street

UK roundup: NAPF, PMI, Newton IM, Cambridge, State Street

first_imgThe National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) and the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) have announced the two organisations are exploring the possibility of a merger. The NAPF is a representative group for pension schemes, while the PMI is an accreditation and standards body for the pensions management and consultancy industry.The pair said discussions over a merger were initiated after a raft of changes in the UK legislation on pensions.PMI chairman Paul Couchman said the pooling of resources and knowledge of the two organisations made sense. “An organisation combining our complementary areas of expertise would provide all our members with access to a single organisation that could offer comprehensive training and qualifications while effectively representing their interests to government and regulators,” Counchman said.Ruston Smith, chairman at the NAPF, said the merged entity could provide a stronger voice and better education for the industry.The pair will now spend 6-9 months assessing the details of any potential merger but will operate separately until a final decision has been made.In other news, Newton Investment Management and the University of Cambridge have agreed a five-year partnership allowing the university to expand its research into long-horizon investing.The partnership will lead to the rebranding of the university’s Centre for Endowment Asset Management to include Newton’s sponsorship at the start. It will continue to produce its annual three-day forum on the topic and publish academic and practitioner journals.The centre’s chairman, professor Elroy Dimson, said: “The partnership with Newton will reinforce Cambridge University’s ongoing collaboration with practitioners, academics and organisations that take a long-term view of investment.”Helena Morrissey, chief executive at Newton, added: “We share the Centre’s commitment to helping long-horizon investors make appropriate investment decisions. “We look forward to collaborating and furthering the understanding of investment decisions and their impact on institutional returns.”Finally, State Street Global Advisors’ (SSgA) latest research into the attitudes and plans of defined contribution (DC) savers highlighted further uncertainty around set retirement ages. This comes as the company makes amendments to its range of target date funds in the wake of the changes to DC legislation announced in the UK Budget.The research revealed only 25% of 1,034 respondents know when they will retire. In response, SSgA head of DC in the UK, Nigel Aston, said its target date offering, Timewise, was originally designed to provide 25% cash free at retirement and an annuity purchase. However, it now addresses new legislation by adding drawdown flexibility, he said.last_img read more

Peace defends Irvine appointment

Peace defends Irvine appointment

first_img Peace said: “We went through a lengthy interview process. “We had about 40-odd people, shortlisted to about seven, went down to a shorter shortlist and the more you see of people, the more you get to know them, the more you get more impressed or the less you’re impressed. “Alan came through that process very strongly and ended up as our first choice. “You might say that it was a difficult one given the reaction but we’ve tried to make the right decision from the club’s point of view. “We have a coaching ethic here. We feel that he fits the bill for us. “We ended up with two very good candidates (Irvine and Sherwood) and when you look at them side-by-side the whole board went with Alan. It was unanimous.” Albion’s announcement last Saturday that Irvine would be coming in as Pepe Mel’s successor on a 12-month rolling deal has drawn a negative response from some Baggies fans, and talk has emerged of an organised protest against the appointment being planned. Irvine, who has not held a senior management position since early 2011 and never one in the Premier League before, called on West Brom supporters to give him a chance at his official unveiling on Wednesday. Press Association And Peace, quoted by the Birmingham Mail on Thursday, said: “People have their say but we have to make the right decision for the football club and not be swayed by what other people think. “If you ask a lot of people who they’d have in the job they’d be split anyway. “You can’t always make the easy decisions. You have to make the right decisions. “As a board we made a unanimous decision that we think is right for this football club. We now have to try and get players in and get people behind us. “We think we can give ourselves a good chance of having a good season. Alan speaks well, his philosophies are good and we are confident people will buy into that. We have made the right decision for the club – we really do believe that.” Tim Sherwood, who guided Tottenham to sixth in the Premier League last term before being sacked, had appeared to be West Brom’s first choice to take over as their head coach and has claimed he was offered the job but turned it down. There has been an emphasis from Albion, meanwhile, on the coaching credentials of Irvine, the academy chief at Everton prior to this job and also Toffees number two between 2002 and 2007 before stints as boss at Preston and Sheffield Wednesday. And Peace insists the Baggies board regarded Irvine the best option after assessing the 55-year-old Scot and Sherwood “side-by-side”. West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace is confident the “unanimous” decision of the board to hire Alan Irvine as the club’s new head coach was the right one.last_img read more

Clinton Njie injury blow leaves Tottenham short of forward options

Clinton Njie injury blow leaves Tottenham short of forward options

first_img “I don’t know but we will expect maybe two months or two and a half,” Pochettino said. “You never know because every day it’s about how the knee responds but maybe two months or a little bit more.” The setback leaves Tottenham even shorter of forward options with Harry Kane currently the club’s only out-and-out first-team striker. Pochettino insists Njie, Son Heung-min and Nacer Chadli can play up front but all three are more comfortable in an attacking midfield role and Spurs are now likely to step up their search for another striker in January. Tottenham moved into the top four for the first time this season after beating Southampton last weekend and a win at home to Norwich on Saturday could see them climb to third. Pochettino believes his young side do not always get the credit their performances deserve and the Argentinian refused to rule out a potential title challenge. “People don’t realise the effort we make and how hard our players work because we are the youngest squad in the Premier League,” Pochettino said. “Sometimes they deserve more praise for the position they have. Maybe the team deserve more praise than we have so far.” Press Association Njie has undergone surgery after sustaining the injury in Spurs’ Europa League victory over Monaco two weeks ago. The Cameroon forward initially struggled with a hamstring problem when he arrived from Lyon in the summer and the 22-year-old is now expected to be on the sidelines until March. Mauricio Pochettino expects Tottenham striker Clinton Njie to be out for two to three months with a knee injury. Pochettino added: “Can we win the title? In football, all is possible. “The last 10 games are very important and it’s how you arrive there to attack different objectives or achieve important things. It’s important how we arrive in the last 10 games.” Danny Rose is available again after missing the win over Southampton through illness while Ryan Mason is also back in contention. The midfielder returned to training this week, having recovered from an ankle injury, but Alex Pritchard (ankle) is still out. last_img read more
