Bishops between a rock and a hard place

Catholics are permitted to support attempts to limit the evil aspects of an abortion law, says Pope John Paul in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae. In Germany, however, the moral complexities have made the Church draw back, which threatens to reduce its influence in society. A journalist on the weekly Rheinischer Merkur highlights the German bishops’ dilemma.

U.S. Anglican-Roman Catholic Theological Commission plans statement on Approaches to Moral Issues

U.S. Anglican-Roman Catholic Theological Commission plans statement on Approaches to Moral Issues

The Anglican-Roman Catholic Theological Consultation in the United States held its sixty-eighth meeting in Alexandria, Louisiana, on September 9 and 10. This session was largely devoted to the examination of a draft outline of a potential agreed statement on the topic of the current round of dialogue, “Ecclesiology and Moral Discernment: Common Ground and Divergences.” This topic explores the fact that while the two churches share the same convictions on a wide range of ethical questions, there are serious differences regarding certain issues in personal morality, especially those pertaining to human sexuality. In earlier meetings of the Commission, members discussed Catholic and Anglican positions on contraception, debt relief, immigration, same-sex unions and health care.

ARCIC meeting in Brazil makes progress on joint statement

Members of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission met in Rio de Janiero, Brazil from 29 April to 7 May, 2013. Photo: Vatican RadioCatholic and Anglican ecumenical experts meeting in Rio de Janeiro have made progress towards their goal of a common statement on relations between the local and universal Church. This third meeting of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC III) has also been exploring the ways in which both communities make decisions regarding moral and ethical issues. During the week-long meeting which concluded on Monday, participants met with local Anglican and Catholic leaders to find out about local ecumenical initiatives. They spent a day in the ‘Cidade de Deus’ or City of God, one of the many slum areas around Rio de Janeiro, where the churches are working closely with police and other civic authorities to provide services and support community development.Members of the Commission described the meeting as a hope filled encounter and plan to hold the next ARCIC III session from May 12th to 20th, 2014.

Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent: un programme pratique pour groupes

The new resource from the Canadian Council of Churches' Biotechnology Reference Group, 'Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent'Bien des familles de nos communautés s’interrogent sur l’interaction entre leur foi et la génétique.

François et Julie, par exemple, ont l’intention d’avoir un enfant, mais avant la conception, ils veulent se soumettre à des criblages génétiques, pour savoir s’ils risquent de transmettre une maladie génétique à leurs enfants. Ni l’un, ni l’autre ne veut d’avortement. S’il y a un risque élevé de maladie génétique, ils prévoient l’adoption plutôt que la conception. S’agit-il là de « se prendre pour Dieu »? Si votre partenaire a des antécédents familiaux de surdité, devriez-vous envisager un test génétique?

On envisage ce genre de scénarios dans un nouveau document du Groupe consultatif sur la biotechnologie du Conseil Canadien des Églises, « Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent ». On y présente cinq modules d’études de cas fondés sur des aspects génétiques, de même qu’une introduction très fondamentale à la génétique et à la technologie génétique.

When Christian Faith and Genetics Meet: A Practical Group Resource

The new resource from the Canadian Council of Churches' Biotechnology Reference Group, 'When Christian Faith and Genetics Meet'Many families in our communities are questioning how their faith interacts with genetic science.

For instance, Frank and Julie are planning on having a child, but before conceiving they want to undergo genetic screenings to discover the chances they have of passing on a genetic disorder to their children. Neither wants to have an abortion. If there is a high risk of a genetic disorder they plan not to conceive, but to adopt. Is this ‘playing God’? If your partner has a history of deafness in their family, should you consider genetic testing?

Scenarios like these are addressed in a new resource from the Canadian Council of Churches‘ Biotechnology Reference Group, “When Christian Faith and Genetics Meet.” It offers five case-study modules based on topics in genetics, as well as very basic introduction to genetics and genetic technology.

Orthodox-Anglican dialogue explores “complex ethical concerns”

An extract from the cover of In the Image and Likeness of God: A Hope-Filled Anthropology - last year's agreed statement from the International Commission for Anglican–Orthodox Theological Dialogue. The statement formed the basis for a new exploration of bioethical and moral issuesMembers of the official Anglican-Orthodox dialogue have met this week to discuss a range of bioethical and moral issues. The discussion was “a practical follow-up” to their agreed statement In the Image and Likeness of God: A Hope-Filled Anthropology, which was published last year after their talks in Buffalo, New York. At this week’s talks in Armagh, Northern Ireland, the International Commission for Anglican–Orthodox Theological Dialogue (ICAOTD) began to explore issues including contraception, abortion, reproductive technology, stem cell research, organ transplants, artificial life support, assisted dying and euthanasia.

The Commission studied four papers unpacking the themes: “Christian Ethics and the Beginning and End of Life: Themes in Anglican Reflection”, by the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams; “Bioethical Themes: Transplants and Euthanasia”, by Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Kition; “Survey of Anglican Church Documents on Beginning and End of Life Issues”, by the Revd Canon Philip Hobson; and “Medical Bioethics: An Orthodox Christian Perspective for Orthodox Christians”, by Protodeacon Basil Andruchow.

“What is new for Anglican-Orthodox dialogue is the discussion of morals, and the practical outworking of the common vision of the human person finalised last year in the agreed statement,” the Anglican Communion’s director for unity, faith and order, the Revd Canon John Gibaut, said. “This year’s meeting signals a new direction, which is both theological and deeply pastoral.
