(Vatican Radio) The annual meeting of the Eastern Catholic hierarchs of Europe is taking place in Prague- Břevnov (Czech Republic), at the invitation of Mgr Ladislav Hučko, Apostolic Exarch for Byzantine Rite Catholics resident in the Czech Republic. The meeting will take place at the Benedictine Archabbey of St Adalbert and St Margaret (Břevnov).
In Břevnov, the bishops representing 14 Eastern Catholic Churches in Europe are discussing issues concerning the family in Europe and the role and mission of the Eastern Catholic Churches. The discussions are taking place with a view, too, to the upcoming Ordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family this coming October. Participants at the meeting are examining two reports: one on The contemporary family in Europe by Deacon Jaroslav Max Kašparů, a well-known lecturer in the Czech Republic; and one on the “sacramental potential” of the family by Fr Volodymyr Los, a priest of the Greek-Catholic Church diocese of Buchach, Ukraine.
Mgr Ladislav Hučko was expected to illustrate the situation and mission of the Greek-Catholic Church in the Czech Republic.
The meeting will end on Sunday 7 June with the celebration of the Divine Liturgy along with the local community in the Greek-Catholic Cathedral of St Clement.
Participants at the meeting, organised by the Council of European Episcopal Conferences (CCEE), include Mgr Cyril Vasil’, Archbishop Secretary of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches, and Mgr Duarte da Cunha, CCEE General Secretary.

Want to know why? Well, because like BBC, they are not so concerned with me subscribing to their news agency, as they are to providing the news for my knowledge! unlike the LA times, the New York Times, the NBC, ABC, etc, which have taken over the public airwaves and deny access t the news, unless one subscribes (or they allow 5-10 stories /month!) I got an app, weather and newsstand from Google: the shame of any app: it takes for ever to download, but only because of being bloated with commercials, cookies etc.! Same stories, can be accessed and shared directly and very fast, from their news app!

The Honeymooners was a short-lived American sitcom based on sketches by comedian Jackie Gleason. It starred Gleason and Audrey Meadows as a struggling working class couple in New York—a drastic departure from other popular comedies of the era that depicted their characters in comfortable, middle-class, suburban environments. Though The Honeymooners was cancelled after just 39 episodes, it has been aired for decades in syndication. What animated TV series did Gleason’s show inspire? More… Discuss

It’s even more outrageous to hear that actually we got it all wrong: Investigations are made, just that the criteria has nothing to do with either common sense, or the laws of the land, or even personal feeling of disgust.
Then here it comes: what’s the criteria, who’s criteria is it anyway?
