Cathy Dempesy le diagnosticaron cáncer de mama, ella se lo dijo inmediatamente a sus feligreses.“La razón por la cual fui tan directa al respecto [fue por] estar consciente de la necesidad de oración. Me ungieron e impusieron las manos sobre mí inmediatamente después de mi diagnosis inicial”.Hoy, 18 de octubre, en la fiesta de San Lucas, Dempesy y otras tres mujeres clérigos de la diócesis episcopal de New York Occidental que fueron sobrevivientes de cáncer de mama presidirán un oficio de “sanación, esperanza y acción de gracias” para conmemorar el Mes de la Concientización sobre el Cáncer de Mama. La predicadora será la Rda. Alison Martin, una sobreviviente de mucho tiempo; y la presbítera Judy Breny y la diácona Penny Foster también participarán en el oficio para pacientes y sobrevivientes de cáncer de mama, sus familias, amigos y miembros de la comunidad médica. El programa incluirá Eucaristía, oportunidades para oraciones de sanación individuales, una conmemoración de las que han muerto de cáncer de mama y una pequeña feria de materiales sobre el tema.En la Diócesis de Nueva York Occidental y en otras partes de la Iglesia Episcopal, el ministerio de sanación se mantiene vivo y creciente. Esto incluye equipos parroquiales de sanación, centros de sanación y capítulos de la Orden Internacional de San Lucas el Médico.Los que participan del ministerio de sanación dicen que están viviendo permanentemente un mandato del evangelio.“La conclusión es que Cristo en Lucas 9:2 dijo que hemos de predicar el [evangelio del] reino y sanar a los enfermos”, dijo el Rdo. Nigel Mumford, director del ministerio de sanación de la Diócesis de Albany en el Centro de Vida Espiritual Cristo el Rey [Christ the King Spiritual Life Center] en Greenwich, Nueva York. “Ése es mi grito de guerra”.Setenta por ciento del ministerio de Jesús fue de sanaciones, dijo el Rdo. Jack Sheffield, sacerdote episcopal y fundador, junto con su esposa, Anna Marie, del Centro de Sanación de Cristo [Christ Healing Center] en San Antonio, Texas. “No creemos que el ministerio de sanación es algo para estar apagado en algún rincón y que ocupe el tres por ciento de nuestro tiempo. Creemos que podría ser un formidable foco de participación comunitaria para cualquier iglesia.“Estamos iniciando centros de sanación en iglesias. Resulta muy evangelístico. Cuando las personas experimentan el amor y la misericordia y la liberación y la libertad de Dios mediante una oración sanadora, quieren quedarse y juntarse con nosotros.Mumford y Sheffield son líderes de la orden de San Lucas, como vicepresidente de la junta nacional y director norteamericano interino respectivamente. Un sacerdote episcopal, el Rdo. John Gayner Banks, y su esposa, Ethel Tulloch Banks, fundaron la orden ecuménica en 1932.Más de 7.500 laicos, clérigos y profesionales norteamericanos pertenecen a la orden, y sus capítulos en varias denominaciones existen a través del mundo, según la página web de la organización. El ministerio está creciendo particularmente en la India, dijo Sheffield.“Es una orden de sanación antigua y bien establecida”, afirmó. “Existe con el propósito de devolverle a la Iglesia el ministerio de sanación de Jesucristo… Está basada en los laicos, y en consecuencia creemos que hay realmente, en los bancos de las iglesias, un ejército de personas que podrían ser equipadas y adiestradas en [la búsqueda de la] excelencia y en una teología bíblica realmente sólida sobre cómo el Señor Jesucristo sigue sanando a las personas hoy”.En el tiempo en que Banks fundó la orden, dijo él en una ocasión, “habíamos perdido mucho del ministerio de Cristo en lo que respecta a sanar a las personas, no sólo físicamente, sino también espiritual, emocional y mentalmente”.Los miembros de la orden pagan sus cuotas y siguen una regla de vida. “Ésta incluye [lectura] diaria de las Escrituras, especialmente de los pasajes de los Evangelios donde Jesús sana a personas”, dijo Sheffield. Incluye también oraciones diarias por la orden, su liderazgo y los que sus miembros ministran, [así como] educación continua y la búsqueda de “tal salud mental y emocional y espiritual y física en nosotros mismos que realmente encarnemos la verdad y la enseñanza de nuestro ministerio con fulgor”.Los miembros se someten a entrenamiento, que incluye estudiar los milagros de Jesús y varios libros, e incorporarse a los capítulos locales con un capellán —con frecuencia el sacerdote o pastor del capítulo de la iglesia, explicó Sheffield. La Orden de San Lucas está concibiendo un plan para permitir también la existencia de capellanes laicos, agregó él.Las congregaciones pueden expandir aún más su ministerio de sanación mediante la formación de centros de sanación, tal como uno que existe en San Antonio. “Los centros de sanación están un poco más concentrados [en esta tarea], y activan realmente los equipos de oración”, explicó Sheffield. “Hay una enorme cantidad de dolor ahora mismo en nuestra cultura. Muchísimo temor, muchísimo quebranto… y hay muchísimos traumas en las vidas de la gente, y este ministerio aborda eso con gran brío”.En el centro de Texas, a los individuos que buscan sanación les dedican una hora completa en la primera visita y pueden regresar repetidas veces en busca de oraciones de sanación. “Tenemos médicos que nos envían a sus pacientes”, dijo Sheffiel “Creo que debería constituir una parte importantísima del proceso terapéutico”.La esencia del ministerio de sanación, dijo Mumford, es escuchar, amar y orar. A veces ocurren sanaciones físicas, explicó él, y recordaba a una pareja que él encontró llorando incontrolablemente en el fondo de su iglesia. A ella le habían dicho que necesitaba un trasplante de corazón para salvar su vida —y tenía que tener un aborto para hacérselo. “Estaba embarazada, iban a abortarle el bebé, y podría morirse de todas maneras”.“Puse a todo el mundo en la iglesia a orar”, contó él. Trajeron la pareja al altar y les impusimos las manos, Al día siguiente, la mujer llamó con emocionantes noticias: una sexta y última prueba mostraba su corazón curado en un 50 por ciento. Finalmente siguió con su embarazo y, después de dar a luz, le dijeron que su corazón estaba “perfectamente normal”.“Si todos nosotros pudiéramos adoptar la mentalidad de la Iglesia: confiar en Dios, que él sí sana, que sí quiere que vivamos vidas de abundancia plena —es por eso que Cristo murió por nosotros”, dijo Mumford, veterano de los comandos de la real Infantería de Marina de Gran Bretaña, cuyo libro más reciente aborda la sanación postraumática.“La gente se asusta mucho del ministerio de sanación. Se asustan de que nada pudiera pasar, y se asustan de que algo pudiera pasar”, afirmó. “Yo diría categóricamente que todo el mundo es sanado, y alguno son curados. Y eso es el misterio”.El Rdo. David Bryan Hoops, sacerdote episcopal y prior de la Orden del monasterio de la Santa Cruz [Holy Cross] en Toronto, sirvió como capellán de la orden de San Lucas de la región oriental de Long Island antes de convertirse en superior de la Santa Cruz durante nueve años a partir de 1999. En la Diócesis de Toronto, de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá, pertenece al comité del obispo para la unción de los laicos.“Adiestramos a los laicos para que sean ministros de la unción y parte del equipo de sanación del ministerio”, explicó. Alrededor de 60 personas se han inscrito para participar de la próxima conferencia de adiestramiento en noviembre.“En el tiempo que llevo de sacerdote, que es cerca de 40 años, realmente he sentido que el ministerio de la sanación era una parte esencial del ministerio de Jesús, y creo que él nos impartió esa responsabilidad en la Iglesia que prosigue su obra”.Una persona puede recibir una oración de sanación sin que la toquen, o mediante la imposición de manos o siendo ungida con óleo [o aceite] santo, dijo. “Depende de las circunstancias, de lo que alguien desea”.Si me preguntan por qué se usa el óleo, “diré que es una costumbre bíblica y, usted sabe, el óleo es símbolo de la sanación. Es símbolo de consagración, y creemos que cada ser humano es un hijo amado de Dios, y es una especie de honor esa consagración… Éste puede ser un símbolo externo del amor de Dios y de la gracia de Dios”.Pero uno no quiere transmitir un mensaje de que es algo “mágico”, que garantiza eliminar el cáncer, dijo él. “Es simplemente elevar la persona ante Dios y pedir la intervención de Dios de cualquier modo que Dios lo crea adecuado”.Él recordó a su madre, paralizada por una rara forma del síndrome de Guillain-Barre, quien recibía oraciones de sanación. “Una vez le dije, ‘Madre, ¿sientes que has sido sanada? Y ella me respondió, ‘he sido sanada de la amargura y de la ira y eso es una gran liberación’”.“Sí creo que hay sanaciones físicas”, dijo Hoops. Pero en otras ocasiones, la gente no recibe sanación física, sino que “se curan de algunos problemas muy importantes en la vida que les impiden ser íntegros, como la amargura y la ira y los resentimientos”.El recibir una oración de sanación después de su diagnóstico de cáncer de mama en 2003, ayudó a Foster a relacionarse con aquellos que más tarde vendrían a ella para [recibir] esas oraciones.“Al orar por una persona”, explicó ella, “especialmente si has estado en el puesto de la persona por la que estás orando, sabes como se siente. Sabes que vale la pena. Sabes lo que eso significa para una persona que está en busca de la sanación de Dios. Supongo que una de las cosas por las que puedo darle gracias al cáncer, porque me puso en ese puesto”.Dempesy escribió recientemente una columna para el Huffington Post que decía, “Gracias, Dios mío, por el cáncer”.“Yo le digo a la gente constantemente que tener cáncer me ha hecho mucho mejor sacerdote”, afirmó.Para ella, el “toque” de sanación es importante. La “experiencia táctil del santo óleo y de las manos” puede brindar alivio y consuelo, dijo, haciendo notar que la Eucaristía también es un acto táctil.“Creo que en nuestro mundo no tenemos suficiente contacto físico. Gran parte de nuestra comunicación la hacemos por medios electrónicos, digitales, etc.” Durante los oficios de sanación en la catedral, “supe que para un asombroso número de personas ése era el único contacto físico semanal que era sano y amoroso”.Cuando tuve el cáncer, “nunca oré pidiendo curación. Pedí tan sólo gracia”, resaltó ella. La gente con frecuencia le dirá que oraron pero no fueron sanados. Ella suele responderles: “Sí fuiste sanado [o sanada]. Sólo que no era la sanación que esperabas”.“Todos nosotros estamos limitados por nuestra humanidad, y nuestra humanidad nos da de alguna manera una visión en blanco y negro de muchas cosas —estoy sanada o no estoy sanada— y yo no creo que ésa es la manera en que Dios sana”, subrayó. Creo que la sanación no es un evento. Creo que es un proceso.– Sharon Sheridan corresponsal de ENS. Traducido por Vicente Echerri.

NewsLocal NewsAbbeyfeale woman gets hip with technologyBy Alan Jacques – May 7, 2017 1260 Advertisement Brid AherneBrid AherneABBEYFEALE physiotherapist Brid Aherne has won a top prize at a conference for aspiring surgeons in the UK for her e-learning tutorial that helps medical students train in orthopaedic surgery.Brid (35), who went back into education to become an orthopaedic specialist, helped develop software which has since been accepted as part of the curriculum for the University of Bristol.The Limerick woman, now based in Bristol, was recently awarded joint first prize for Medical Students Oral at the Aspiring Surgeons’ Conference run by Britain’s oldest surgical college, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Working with a team of four medical students at the University of Bristol, Brid developed the software with the aim of providing every student equal knowledge about particular orthopaedic surgical techniques, irrespective of their operating theatre experience.Although it does not replace time spent on placement in theatre, the software strongly enhances training, adding another layer that provides not only visual experience, but also acts as a revision resource.“With an ever-ageing population, the management of hip surgical patients, elective or trauma, before, during or after their hip surgery, will be a part of every junior doctor’s workload,” Brid explained.“With this in mind, along with the fact that e-learning is an evolving and expanding resource, we aimed to harness the potential of interactive online learning to increase access to clinical anatomy, surgical knowledge and patient management in orthopaedics”.The project was developed with guidance from orthopaedic surgeons at the university, following research into methods and theories of teaching. The finished software includes anatomical training, an interactive 3D model of the hip joint, and videos of hip surgery with voiceovers. “We hope that our resource will improve clinical practice and the care of orthopaedic patients by providing online resources that augment existing training,” she concluded.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleHomelessness in Limerick going in wrong directionNext articleThree year funding delay for LEADER projects Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSAbbeyfealeBrid AherneBristollimerickRoyal College of Surgeons of EdinburghUniversity of Bristol Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Linkedin Print Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival WhatsApp Twitter Facebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live

I know in North Cork they are finding it very difficult to find hotels and B&Bs for families who have become homeless. Those families are actually even travelling to hotels in Limerick to be accommodated.”Citing the recent experience of a homeless family in Cork who had to vacate their hotel room as it was booked to accommodate people attending a concert, she added: “This is the time of the year where there is a lot happening over the summer months, and unfortunately, families are going to be moving from one B&B to the next.“It’s extremely stressful for people in the private rented sector at the moment, because of the fear of having to face into that,” she explained.

narvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 1 million people worldwide.Over 37.8 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The criteria for diagnosis — through clinical means or a lab test — has varied from country-to-country. Still, the actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the virus has rapidly spread to every continent except Antarctica.The United States is the worst-affected country, with more than 7.8 million diagnosed cases and at least 215,086 deaths.California has the most cases of any U.S. state, with more than 857,000 people diagnosed, according to Johns Hopkins data. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 821,000 cases and over 736,000 cases, respectively.More than 190 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, at least 10 of which are in crucial phase three studies. Of those 10 potential vaccines in late-stage trials, there are currently five that will be available in the United States if approved.Here’s how the news is developing Tuesday. All times Eastern:Oct 13, 10:39 amEurope reports highest weekly incidence of COVID-19 casesThe World Health Organization said more than 2.2 million new cases of COVID-19 and 39,000 deaths from the disease have been reported across the globe in the past week, the highest number of reported cases so far in a single week since the start of the pandemic.According to the WHO’s weekly epidemiological update published Monday, Europe registered the highest weekly incidence of COVID-19 cases of any region since the start of the pandemic, with almost 700,000 new infections reported. The region’s weekly incidence in cases and deaths increased by 34% and 16% respectively in comparison to the previous week. The United Kingdom, France, Russia and Spain account for over half of all new cases reported in the region.Africa reported a substantial rise in deaths from COVID-19, with a 27% increase compared to the previous week. South Africa continues to register more than half of all confirmed cases reported in the region, the WHO said.Still, nearly half of the world’s cases and deaths continue to be reported in the Americas region, with the United States, Brazil and Argentina accounting for the greatest numbers, according to the WHO.All regions showed an increase in cases during the reporting period, except Southeast Asia. Countries reporting the highest number of cases in the last seven days include India, the United States, Brazil, the United Kingdom and France, the WHO said.Oct 13, 8:28 amIowa becomes latest US state to surpass 100,000 casesIowa has tallied more than 100,000 positive cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.The midwestern U.S. state reached the grim milestone on Monday amid a surge in new cases. More than half of all 50 states have now passed the 100,000 mark.As of Tuesday morning, the Iowa Department of Public Health had recorded a total of 100,507 positive cases out of 867,124 individuals tested so far, with a positivity rate of 11.6%.U.S. President Donald Trump is heading to the Hawkeye State, where he will host a campaign rally Wednesday following his recent COVID-19 diagnosis.Oct 13, 7:58 amChinese city tests more than 3 million residents amid outbreakThe eastern Chinese port city of Qingdao has tested more than a third of its nine million residents for COVID-19 since launching a citywide testing campaign amid the country’s first reported domestic outbreak in months.The Qingdao Municipal Health Commission said in a statement Tuesday that it had collected over three million samples for COVID-19 tests and that no new cases have been found among the more than 1.1 million results returned thus far. The entire city will be tested this week, the commission said.A total of 12 cases of COVID-19 — six with symptoms and six without — have been recorded in Qingdao, since an outbreak linked to the city’s Municipal Chest Hospital was discovered over the weekend, according to the commission.The Chinese mainland, where the coronavirus pandemic began last December, has so far reported 85,591 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 4,634 deaths. The country does not count asymptomatic infections as confirmed cases.Oct 13, 7:16 amItaly introduces strict new nationwide measuresThe Italian government imposed strict new measures nationwide on Tuesday in a bid to prevent further spread of the novel coronavirus.Under the new rules, parties in public spaces and discos, both indoors and outdoors, are banned. Parties can be held in restaurants but with no more than 30 attendees. Bars, ice cream parlors, pastry shops and restaurants with table service must close by midnight, while those without must shutter by 9 p.m. Drinks can only be consumed while sitting at tables — not while standing at the bar or outside — after 9 p.m.Also banned are school trips, guided tours and any contact sports not organized by an association that can maintain social distancing rules. Gyms, however, remain open.The government’s new measures are limited to “strong recommendations” against private gatherings and parties in homes with more than six people who don’t share a household. There’s also no obligation to wear a face mask inside a home but it’s “strongly recommended” when guests are over.Last week’s nationwide mandate to wear masks outdoors remains in place.The move comes as Italy, once the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, sees a sharp uptick in infections after gradually loosening restrictions during the spring and summer, following a nearly three-month lockdown that helped get its COVID-19 outbreak under control.Earlier this month, the European country confirmed more than 5,000 new cases of COVID-19 in a single day for the first time since the peak of its outbreak in late March. On Monday, Italy’s civil protection agency registered 4,619 new cases and 39 deaths, bringing the cumulative totals to 359,569 cases and 36,205 deaths.Oct 13, 5:51 amRussia sees record rise in cases and deaths but ‘no reason’ for lockdownRussia confirmed 13,868 new cases of COVID-19 and 244 deaths over the past 24 hours, setting new records for its daily tallies of both infections and fatalities.It’s the third straight day that Russia has registered over 13,000 new cases. The country’s previous record of 13,634 new cases was set over the weekend. Meanwhile, the latest single-day death toll shatters the previous record of 232 deaths, which was set at the end of May.The cumulative totals now stand at 1,312,310 confirmed cases and 22,727 deaths, according to Russia’s coronavirus response headquarters.Russian authorities have said there’s no immediate plan to impose a second nationwide lockdown, even as the country’s outbreak grows after most coronavirus-related restrictions were lifted over the summer.“In spite of the fact that we are seeing growing numbers, today in the Russian Federation we are not talking about blocking the economy, halting any activities, enterprises or any sectors of the economy because we see no reason for that today,” Anna Popova, head of Russian consumer watchdog Rospotrebnazor, told reporters Tuesday.But officials in Moscow, the epicenter of the country’s COVID-19 outbreak, have recommended that the elderly self-isolate at home and also encouraged businesses to have at least one-third of their employees work from home. School holidays in the capital this month were extended from one to two weeks.More than 33% of the newly confirmed cases — 4,618 — and nearly 24% of the newly reported deaths — 58 — were registered in the capital. Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has said that this week will be “largely decisive” in the fight against the city’s outbreak.Oct 13, 5:33 amIndia records lowest daily tally of cases since AugustIndia confirmed another 55,342 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, it’s lowest daily tally since mid-August.An additional 706 coronavirus-related fatalities were also recorded. The country’s cumulative totals now stand at 7,175,880 confirmed cases and 109,856 deaths, according to the latest data from the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.India is only the second country in the world to surpass seven million total cases, after the United States. Since hitting a peak of 97,894 new cases registered in a single day in September, India’s average number of daily cases has steadily declined, falling to under 73,000 cases a day.The vast country of nearly 1.4 billion people is still on track to become the pandemic’s worst-hit nation within weeks, overtaking the United States, where more than 7.8 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19.Oct 13, 5:08 amFour Vatican Swiss Guards test positive for COVID-19Four members of the Vatican Swiss Guard have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni.The test results came in over the weekend and the four guards, who are showing symptoms, were placed in isolation.“During these hours, the necessary checks are being carried out among those who may have been in direct contact with them,” Bruni told reporters Monday. “In the meantime, in accordance with the provisions issued last week by the Governorate of Vatican City State, all the guards, whether on duty or not, wear masks, both outdoors and indoors, and observe the prescribed health measures.”They are believed to be the first to test positive for the virus among the Vatican Swiss Guard, the elite, colorfully-dressed corps that protects the pope. It’s unknown what direct contact — if any — the infected guards had with Pope Francis, who doesn’t wear a mask at his general audiences or when meeting with worshippers, sometimes coming into relatively close contact to mingle and shake hands.The COVID-19 infections among the four guards are in addition to three other positive cases discovered in recent weeks among residents and citizens of Vatican City, the tiny city-state surrounded by Rome that is home to the pontiff and serves as the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. All cases have mild symptoms and the necessary measures of isolation and contact tracing have been taken, according to Bruni.Oct 13, 4:31 amUS reports more than 41,000 new casesThere were 41,653 new cases of COVID-19 identified in the United States on Monday, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The latest daily tally is down by less than 3,000 from the previous day and falls well under the country’s record set on July 16, when there were 77,255 new cases in a 24-hour-reporting period.An additional 317 coronavirus-related fatalities were also recorded Sunday, down from a peak of 2,666 new fatalities reported on April 17.A total of 7,804,336 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 215,086 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July. The daily tally of new cases has gradually come down since then but has started to climb again in recent weeks.Week-over-week comparisons show the number of new cases reported across the nation continues to go up, as does the usage of intensive care units, but the number of new deaths are down, according to an internal memo from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that was obtained by ABC News last week.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
