MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Nicaraguan police have arrested another opposition politician, bringing to six the number detained over the weekend. On Sunday, police also arrested prominent ex-Sandinista dissidents Dora María Téllez and Hugo Torres and, another opposition leader, Ana Margarita Vijil. Ortega has already arrested four potential opposition candidates who might have challenged his bid for a fourth consecutive term. Ortega initially led Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990 following the Sandinista revolution that ousted Somoza. Torres said Ortega has now instituted a more suffocating dictatorship than Somoza, who faced opposition from the within the church, intellectual circles and universities.

U.S. President Joe Biden speaks with a priest outside St. Joseph on the Brandywine Catholic Church, in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S. May 30, 2021. As the second Catholic to serve as U.S. president, Biden, a Democrat, has alarmed some church leaders by supporting same-sex marriage and abortion rights, views they say are antithetical to church teachings. In 2004, the conference published a statement that said individual bishops could decide whether to deny Communion to Catholic politicians who support abortion rights. Dempsey said he believes the bishops' conference should take a stand against Biden and other politicians who support abortion rights or risk losing credibility among Catholics. A Vatican official, Cardinal Luis Ladaria, wrote to the conference in May urging caution on the debate over politicians' abortion views and Communion, saying it could become a "source of discord," Catholic News Service reported.

ROME — The Vatican has warned conservative American bishops to hit the brakes on their push to deny communion to politicians supportive of abortion rights — including President Biden, a faithful churchgoer and the first Roman Catholic to occupy the Oval Office in 60 years. But despite the remarkably public stop sign from Rome, the American bishops are pressing ahead anyway and are expected to force a vote on the communion issue at a remote meeting that starts on Wednesday. Some leading bishops, whose priorities clearly aligned with former President Donald J. Trump, now want to reassert the centrality of opposition to abortion in the Catholic faith and lay down a hard line — especially with a liberal Catholic in the Oval Office. The vote threatens to shatter the facade of unity with Rome, highlight the political polarization within the American church and set what church historians consider a dangerous precedent for bishops’ conferences across the globe.

Churchgoers in a seaside resort in England say they have been left “gobsmacked” when U.S. President Joe Biden and the first lady Jill Biden dropped in for a Sunday service. The Bidens are in Cornwall, southwest England, where the U.S. president is attending a Group of Seven wealthy democracies summit. On Sunday morning, ahead of the summit’s conclusion, they were seen attending mass at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in St. Ives. “It’s quite amazing, we went into the church and they took some details from us and I thought this is a bit unusual. I’m not sure I will ever get over this moment completely.”Gayle Wood, 63, said Biden appeared to make a “very generous donation” to the church before leaving.

"I think we can sort it out but ... it is up to our EU friends and partners to understand that we will do whatever it takes," Johnson told Sky News. NO NARROWING OF POSITIONSThe province has an open border with EU member Ireland so the Northern Ireland protocol was agreed as a way to preserve the bloc's single market after Britain left. "Both sides must implement what we agreed on," von der Leyen, European Commission president, said after meeting Johnson alongside Michel, the European Council president. Germany’s Merkel said the two sides could find pragmatic solutions on technical questions, while the EU protected its single market. The head of the World Trade Organization said she hoped the tensions would not escalate into a trade war.

The European Union told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday that he must implement the Brexit deal that he signed to ensure the delicate peace in Northern Ireland and that the 27-member bloc was completely unified on that position. "There is complete EU unity on this," she said, adding that the deal had been agreed, signed and ratified by both Johnson's government and the EU. The 1998 peace deal largely brought an end to the "Troubles" - three decades of conflict between Irish Catholic nationalist militants and pro-British Protestant "loyalist" paramilitaries in which 3,600 people were killed. French President Emmanuel Macron offered to reset relations with Britain as long as Johnson stands by the Brexit deal. The pro-British "unionist" community in Northern Ireland province say they are now split off from the rest of the United Kingdom and that the Brexit deal that Johnson signed therefore breaches the 1998 peace deal.

She said that the discussions “could sometimes get uncomfortable” but that she was surprised by the honesty and mutual understanding participants expressed. I’m convinced — well, I’m trying to convince myself — that most Americans are like Ms. Lewis. It’s crucial to see that young Catholics and Protestants were not merely emissaries of inevitable generational change. “There’s this rise in wanting to be engaged politically, but also a rising awareness of the dangers of tribalism. A lot of my friends are trying to get back to something that defines their values other than politics.”

ROME—Pope Francis told German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who offered his resignation last month to take responsibility for the Catholic Church’s institutional failures to prevent clerical sex abuse, instead to remain in office and pursue reform. Cardinal Marx has been a leading figure in the Catholic Church’s response to abuse scandals and in the synod, which is debating major changes to Catholic life including the ordination of women and blessings of same-sex relationships. In a highly personal letter written in his native Spanish, Pope Francis addressed Cardinal Marx as “dear brother,” commended his courage and told him to continue the painful work of overhauling church institutions in the wake of the abuse crisis. “The reform in the Church has been made by men and women who were not afraid to enter into crisis and let themselves be reformed by the Lord. This is the only way, otherwise we will be nothing more than ‘reform ideologues’ who do not put their own flesh at stake,” the pope wrote in the letter, which was dated Thursday.

Indigenous children had their long hair, which often had spiritual significance for them, cut upon arrival and were forbidden from speaking their native languages, according to the TRC. Lorraine Daniels, 67, went to three different residential schools in Manitoba and said she learned to follow the crowd in order to remain unnoticed to escape abuse. 'WE WERE ALWAYS HUNGRY'The discovery of the bodies at the Kamloops Indian Residential School in the province of British Columbia has reopened old wounds in Canada about the lack of information and accountability around the residential school system. "They never got a chance to be children, just like we didn’t get a chance," Roulette said.

Peruvian socialist Pedro Castillo held a wafer-thin lead in a polarized presidential election on Wednesday, with a battle brewing over the result that could spark weeks of political wrangling, market volatility and deeper divisions. Fujimori, the heir of a powerful political family, has however, raised unsubstantiated allegations that supporters of Castillo tried to steal votes, which the leftist's party has strongly denied. International electoral observers and experts have said the vote was carried out cleanly. On Tuesday, hundreds of voters on both sides demonstrated in front of Peru's elections office against the perception of irregularities in the vote counting process. 2 copper producer saw three presidents in a week last year amid political scandals and protests, has been hit by the world's deadliest Covid-19 outbreak and posted its worst economic plunge in three decades last year.

LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles nun who took a vow of poverty has agreed to plead guilty to federal charges for stealing more than $800,000 to pay for a gambling habit, prosecutors said Tuesday. Mary Margaret Kreuper, 79, of Los Angeles was charged Tuesday with one count of wire fraud and one count of money laundering, the U.S. attorney's office said. Kreuper, who was the school principal for 28 years, “controlled accounts at a credit union, including a savings account for the school and one established to pay the living expenses of the nuns employed by the school," the U.S. attorney's office said. In her plea agreement, Kreuper acknowledged diverting money to pay for personal expenses that included credit card charges and “large gambling expenses incurred at casinos," the U.S. attorney's office said. Kreuper could face up to 40 years in federal prison.

"We already have the official party tally, where the people have won this fight," he told supporters, referring to an unofficial vote count conducted by his party, Free Peru.

Experts and international electoral observers have said that Peru's election was carried out cleanly. Still, Fujimori's allegations could trigger days of confusion and tension, amid a polarized election cycle that has divided Peruvians, with higher-income citizens supporting the right-wing candidate and lower-income ones supporting Castillo.

In comments on Sunday, the pope stopped short of the direct apology some Canadians had demanded. "I really hope that they give Pope Francis' message a second chance because it says an awful lot and it expresses his feelings, his sorrow, his shock," Czerny said in a telephone interview. After the pope spoke, some Canadian indigenous leaders and school survivors said they were disappointed and that the Church needed to do much more. Francis was elected pope 17 years after the last schools were closed and has already apologised for the Church's role in colonialism in the Americas.
