Pope appoints first cardinal from Amazon rainforest

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — When the Archbishop of the Brazilian city of Manaus Leonardo Steiner kneels before Pope Francis on August 27, the Brazilian clergyman will make history as the first cardinal to come from the Amazon region.

“The communities feel that the distance between Rome and the Amazon is now smaller,” Steiner told The Associated Press in a written interview. “Perhaps this is the reason for the Amazonian people’s joy with Pope Francis’ move.”

Steiner attributed his selection to four priorities of the pope: the desire to do more missionary work in the Amazon and to be attentive to the poor; to care for the Amazon “as our common home” and to be a Church that “knows how to contribute to the autonomy of Indigenous people.”

Sprawling across nine countries, the Amazon region is larger than the European Union. It is home to 34 million people, of whom more than three million are Indigenous, belonging to around 400 ethnic groups, according to the Catholic Church.

Prince Andrew ‘lobbying Queen to have royal status reinstated’, report says

The Duke of York is pushing for a return to royal duties and has asked the Queen to reinstate his role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

The prince lost the coveted role along with other military titles and royal patronages in January.

The monarch’s disgraced second son stepped down from public life after the furore over his friendship with paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and after he paid millions to settle a civil sexual assault case against Virginia Giuffre.

Almost six months on, he not only wants to be reinstated as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, but also wants to be able to attend royal engagements alongside other members of the royal family, according to The Telegraph.

The perv embarrassed the Queen at Philip's funeral (he wasn't supposed to walk the Queen down the aisle at the Cathedral)
He expected to be invited to make a public appearance at the Order of the Garter ceremony at Windsor Castle on Monday, but was told to stay away.

I've read in several British publications that once Charles (or William) ascends the throne that Andrew will be moved well away from the Royal family. My suggestion is the Tower

The Russian navy's surprising losses against Ukraine are reminders of another humiliating defeat 117

Since Russia launched its attack on Ukraine in late February, the Russian navy has suffered high-profile losses against a heavily outnumbered and outgunned adversary.

The Russians have lost at least five Raptor-class patrol boats, one Tapir-class landing ship, one Serna-class landing craft, and most notably the Moskva, a Slava-class guided-missile cruiser that was also the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet.

Fought in the waters between Korea and southern Japan by ships of the Japanese and Russian empires on May 27 and 28 in 1905, the battle cemented Japan's rise as an equal to Western powers and had a lasting impact on both Japan and Russia.

Japan gained a naval advantage relatively quickly. It fought off an attempt by the main part of the Russian Pacific Fleet to break the blockade of Port Arthur and largely defeated Russia's Vladivostok-based squadrons at Chemulpo Bay and Ulsan — victories that allowed Japan to effectively dominate the Pacific.

What does the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby know he isn't saying

I've read several articles from British papers where the Archbishop has said we should be more forgiving of Prince Andrew, that he is trying to make amends
My question is, "Amends for what?" He claims he did nothing wrong or improper.
I don't know about anyone else, but if I didn't do anything wrong I'm not going to make amends because there's nothing to make amends for.
So, I wish to know what Andrew is making amends for and what the Rev Welby knows about the details

One article from British tabloid about it. I know it's a day old, but I was busy yesterday
