In Lambeth



I have been keeping half an eye out for what is going on at the Lambeth Conference but there seems to be a deliberate news black out.
Apparently they are all sweltering in a huge tent because the is no money for air coinditioning.
Ruth Gledhill has this video of Archbishop of Sudan Dr Daniel Deng calling for the resignation of Gene Robinson.





She also reports Cardinal Ivan Dias, Prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for Evangelisation has told the 650 bishops:

'Much is spoken today of diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. By analogy, their symptoms can, at times, be found even in our own Christian communities. For example, when we live myopically in the fleeting present, oblivious of our past heritage and apostolic traditions, we could well be suffering from spiritual Alzheimer's. And when we behave in a disorderly manner, going whimsically our own way without any co-ordination with the head or the other members of our community, it could be ecclesial Parkinson's.'

A bit of plain talking. I am sure this is similar message Cardinal Kaspar will deliver on Sarurday.
