Devin Toner – Leinster and Ireland

first_imgGordon D’ArcyNathan Hines LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Devin Toner using his height advantageThe Leinster lock showed he has a head for heights during Ireland’s Autumn Tests. It was a glum day on the Emerald Isle when it was confirmed that Paul O’Connell would miss all of the autumn Tests. The loss of Ireland’s talisman exposed a vulnerability in the squad, and where a year ago the O’Connell/Donncha O’Callaghan second-row partnership had undone the South African lineout, last month was a different story as the world champions defied the odds to win at the new home of Irish rugby. To rub salt in Ireland’s wounds, questions started to be asked about leadership within the squad and where it would come from once the likes of O’Connell and Brian O’Driscoll retired.Enter Devin Toner, who stepped into the No 5 shirt to win his first cap in the 20-10 victory over Samoa last month. The 6ft 10in Dubliner started his rugby life as a ten-year-old at North Kildare rugby club in Kilcock, where he and his older brother, Daragh, were taken by their dad. A Castleknock College student, he also played Gaelic football, but his school coach Mick Quinn had persuaded him to dedicate his time to the oval-ball game by the time he was 16. In fact, it was the former Ireland international who made the youngster realise that a career in rugby could lie ahead.Toner’s size and athleticism was obvious in his appearances for Ireland Schools and his performances made big news around Dublin, so the Leinster Academy wasted no time in snapping him up in the hope that he would follow in the footsteps of Malcolm O’Kelly and Leo Cullen, who he grew up hero-worshipping. Toner isn’t one to get carried away, however, and his work ethic ensured he picked the brains of his team-mates. “I grew up watching Malcolm O’Kelly play,” he says. “I’ve learnt a lot off Mal and Leo Cullen. The two of them have a wealth of experience, so I’ve just tried to learn as much as I can.”Toner’s learning curve became slightly steeper last season as Cullen was dogged by injury, pushing the youngster into the spotlight. Coach Michael Cheika gave Toner a number of first-team opportunities alongside O’Kelly and Nathan Hines, the young giant featuring in six Heineken Cup games and helping Leinster to reach the semi-finals. He has been a regular on Leinster’s team sheet this term now that O’Kelly has hung up his boots, featuring in both of October’s Heineken Cup games.And that experience has helped him make the step up to Test rugby. The Heineken Cup brings a fever similar to that of international rugby for both fans and players alike in Ireland, so playing in such high-pressure games has been the perfect introduction to life on the international scene for Toner – and so far he has taken the transition in his stride. Nevertheless, a first cap is bound to test the steeliest of nerves, and even the easy-going Toner wasn’t immune to pre-match jitters.“If you asked people about me they’d say I’m a laid-back kind of guy,” he says. “But I was pretty nervous going into that first game, and even on the bench in the next one (against New Zealand). Once the game starts you’re thrown into it, though, and I’d like to think I handled the pressure pretty well.”With four second-rows in Ireland’s November squad (O’Callaghan, Mick O’Driscoll and Donnacha Ryan the other three), Toner had targeted the second game against Samoa as the time to make his entrance on the international stage, but coach Declan Kidney kept him guessing about his selection for most of the week. “Declan didn’t tell me he was picking me for the Samoa game, he just read out the team,” says Toner. “I was surprised to hear my name, it was brilliant! He wanted me to enjoy it and to give me a surprise because it was my first cap, but usually he chats to everyone individually.” TAGS: Leinster As if a first Test wasn’t enough to take in, Toner took it upon himself to call the lineouts, sending a strong message about his confidence and leadership skills. And Kidney must have been impressed as he named him on the bench for the games against the All Blacks and Argentina.Toner is now back at Leinster this month, but there’s no let-up as the focus returns to the Heineken Cup and the province’s next opponents, Clermont Auvergne. Despite finding himself rubbing shoulders with the cream of Ireland’s crop, Toner is all too aware that at the top level you’re always working to keep your place, so he wants to help Leinster win back their European crown to enhance his Test prospects. “I’d like to start most of the games for Leinster and do well there, but when it comes to the Six Nations, if I’m involved in the squad then great but Paulie will probably be back, and Leo will be in the fold as well so I’ll have to see how things go,” he says.O’Connell may leave big boots to fill but one thing’s for sure – there’s a big man who’s ready and waiting to step into them.Learn more about Devin’s teammates at Leinster…Brian O’Driscolllast_img read more

Lions 2017: Blues 22-16 British & Irish Lions

first_imgTry: Stander Con: Halfpenny. Pens: Halfpenny 3.Yellow card: Williams (57min). How the Blues triumphed against the 2017 Lions at Eden Park Missed opportunities – As in their opening game on Saturday, the Lions struggled to finish off the chances they created. Over the past few days there has been much talk of being clinical and accurate, but early on here an overlap was blown out wide. There is still work to do in that area. It’s good that the opportunities are being created, although those opportunities did dry up somewhat in the second 40, but they need to become more ruthless. They were given a lesson in just how ruthless New Zealand sides are with the Blues outscoring them three tries to one, and getting over on just as many occasions but having those efforts ruled out.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERELineout discipline – The Lions were clearly keen to put on pressure at lineout time, indeed they scored their opening try through CJ Stander off the back of a lineout drive, but they need to tighten up in terms of discipline in that area. Within four minutes they conceded a free-kick as they closed the gap at a Blues defensive lineout near their 22 and later in the half they did the same, which resulted in a penalty. The tourists were also penalised for pulling down the jumper. On their own throw the lineout functioned well – the set-piece as a whole was a plus, with the tourists dominating at the scrum too – but these needless penalties at defensive lineouts allowed the Blues to gain territory and put the Lions under pressure. Overall, the Lions need to tighten up in terms of discipline, the 13 penalties conceded at Eden Park a concern.Eden Park playlist – The music blaring out at breaks in play and after scores could do with a little updating! Enough of the Mexican wave too.Centre point: Sonny Bill Williams enjoys his try just before the break.

Cons: Perofeta, West. Pen: West.British & Irish Lions: Leigh Halfpenny; Jack Nowell, Jared Payne (Liam Williams 48), Robbie Henshaw, Elliot Daly; Dan Biggar (Johnny Sexton 36), Rhys Webb (Greig Laidlaw 75); Jack McGrath (Joe Marler 54), Ken Owens (capt, Rory Best 68), Dan Cole (Kyle Sinckler 55), Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes (Iain Henderson 75), James Haskell (Peter O’Mahony 54), Justin Tipuric, CJ Stander. The Blues inflicted a famous defeat on the British & Irish Lions, a stunning 74th-minute try for replacement fly-half Ihaia West the decisive blow.The Lions did have a chance to snatch the victory when they were awarded a penalty in the final minute. Johnny Sexton found touch seven metres from the Blues’ line but Rory Best’s throw went awry, the hosts secured possession and put the ball into touch.The tourists had started brightly, stringing phases together and attacking down the wings – as they did on Saturday – but it was the Blues who struck first through Rieko Ioane. Midway through the half CJ Stander drove over from a lineout maul and Leigh Halfpenny’s conversion, and a later penalty, put the Lions in front.Red alert: The Lions celebrate CJ Stander’s try from a driving lineout. Photo: Getty ImagesThe Blues led 12-10 at half-time, however, as they reacted better from a penalty attempt hitting the post in the last minute. Jack Nowell and TJ Faiane both leapt for the ball, the Englishman knocked it back but it was Sonny Bill Williams who was on hand to score.The hosts dominated the early exchanges after the break and the Lions could not get a foothold in the game, or even in Blues territory. While they were smart in how they managed Liam Williams’s ten-minute spell in the sin-bin for a tackle in the air, they struggled to put the phases together and get points on the board. A couple of Halfpenny penalties did put the Lions in front going into the last ten minutes – but then came West’s try and the Lions, with a better performance overall than on Saturday, blew their chance to snatch the win at the end.Which Lions caught the eye?Rhys Webb – A bright spark throughout at scrum-half, until cramp struck in the closing minutes. Delivered quick ball from the breakdown to his fly-half – be it Dan Biggar or Johnny Sexton, who came on when the Welshman suffered a head injury in the first half – and was continually driving the Lions’ attack.Courtney Lawes – The England lock made his presence felt with several uncompromising tackles – something of a trademark for the Northampton Saint – and also showed up well as a ball-carrier. Plus, he was part of a pack that dominated at scrum time.Mind the gap: Courtney Lawes looks for space against the Blues. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat’s hotBack-handed offloads – Steven Luatua’s back-handed flick in the 74th minute released Sonny Bill Williams to scythe through midfield and when he was stopped by Liam Williams, he produced the type of offload we’ve been accustomed to seeing so often from the All Blacks centre. The pass found Ihaia West, who then stepped around Leigh Halfpenny to score the decisive try. Expect the Lions to go higher in the tackle from now on to try to prevent those offloads.Ioane double act – On the wing is the younger Ioane, Rieko, who showed his pace throughout. He’s a real danger man, gliding past Jack Nowell for the opening try and crossing the line on another two occasions only to have his efforts – rightly – ruled out by the TMO. Then in the back row is Akira, the larger of the two, who was a real nuisance at the breakdown, regularly the first Blues player to latch onto the ball at contact and try to get those vital turnovers. The pair combined well, too, Rieko often making the tackle and Akira then going for the ball, and in the second half they linked to break down the wing only for the next pass to be knocked on.Corner stop: Blues wing Rieko Ioane runs in the opening try. Photo: Getty ImagesHardy fans – It was a lovely afternoon in Auckland but shortly before kick-off the rain came down and late in the second half it hammered down again. They weren’t pleasant conditions for watching rugby, particularly in those exposed stands at Eden Park, but the weather didn’t seem to bother the 40,639 crowd in attendance.What’s not TAGS: Highlight Due West: Ihaia West scores the winning try for the Blues at Eden Park.

Shaun Edwards Says High-profile Union Players Interested in League Switch

first_imgPointing the way: Shaun Edwards working as Wales defence coach Explaining what Wigan need to do to become a lightning rod for talent, he said: “We have to make Wigan a place where people enjoy playing. A little bit like Saracens in rugby union.“People go to Saracens for probably less money than they go to somewhere else, because they know they’re going to an environment where number one they have fun, number two they become better players, and number three they are usually challenging for honours. That’s what we need to create here.”Serial winner: Shaun Edwards after a sixth successive Challenge Cup win for WiganReiterating what he told the press when it was announced that he would be taking up the role in Wigan, Edwards told the host Brian Carney (himself a dual-code rugby player): “I’ll be straight with you, I took a risk.“I’m pretty well thought of in rugby union, and maybe for the next ten or 15 years I’d have had some form of employment – I wouldn’t say guaranteed but there’s a lot of competitions in rugby union and each team has five or six coaches.“There’s the Celtic league (Pro14), there’s the Top 14 – I speak a bit of French – I’ve obviously won four Premierships and there’s Super Rugby. So there’s a lot of employment in rugby union, but there was still a burning desire in my soul somewhere to challenge for rugby league titles.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Shaun Edwards Says High-profile Union Players Interested in League SwitchThere are big-name union players who would like to switch codes to union in “three or four years’ time”, according to Shaun Edwards.The Wales defence coach, who announced this week that he will take up the reigns as coach of Super League’s Wigan Warriors after the 2019 Rugby World Cup, was talking to Sky Sports on their Golden Point Special show.He said: “I’ve had spoken to a couple of players – very high-profile players – in the last 24 hours, and they’ve put an interest about coming to rugby league in about three or four years’ time. I won’t tell you who they are, but they’re very, very high profile.”Related: Edwards to return to Wigan WarriorsEdwards knows all about success in Wigan. Through 14 years at the club, where he played full-back, stand-off and scrum-half, he won eight league titles and nine Challenge Cups.

Hotshot: Zebre and Italy U20 back-rower Antoine Koffi

first_img Zebre and Italy U20 back-rower Antoine KoffiDate of birth 15 January 1999 Born Mondovi Club Zebre Country Italy Position No 8When did you first get involved in rugby?I started playing aged five with Amatori Parma. My parents took me and what I liked most when I started was the environment and my team-mates.What other sports did you play growing up? I did some judo aged four before joining my first club.Who were your childhood heroes?I never had a real idol or reference when I was a kid, but I was looking at my senior club mates to get inspiration and improve myself.What positions have you played? I was an outside-centre in my early playing years before moving to No 8, which is my current position.What are your strengths? Carrying the ball forward and using the gaps in the defence. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Talk us through your progress to Italy U20… I joined the FIR U18 preparation centre in Remedello, near Brescia, and played for Italy U17, then advanced to the U18 squad the following year, even though I underwent some knee surgery in the same season.In 2017-18 I was a National Academy member and was selected in the U20 squad, playing against Wales and Scotland in the Six Nations before making my way to the U20 World Cup.Who has been the biggest influence on your career? All the coaches I’ve worked with had a serious influence on my rugby.What are your goals for the rest of 2019? Now the Six Nations is over, it’s improving our final positioning in the Junior World Championship (Italy finished eighth in 2018). From an individual perspective, I’d like to get more opportunities for Zebre in the Pro14.What do you do away from rugby?

Rugby World Cup Greatest Shocks

first_img 2019 Rugby World Cup TV Coverage Rugby World Cup Winners 2019 Rugby World Cup TV Coverage Held in Japan for the first time, make… Collapse LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby World Cup Greatest ShocksWith eight tournaments completed, the Rugby World Cup has produced some amazing moments throughout its history, including some of the greatest shocks to ever happen in the sport. Owain Jones takes a look at eight of the greatest, starting with the biggest of all, Japan‘s colossal victory over the Springboks in 2015.Japan 34-32 South Africa (2015)Truly one of the genuine ‘I was there’ moments in sport, let alone rugby. Brighton rocked, as South Africa, two-time winners of the competition, stuttered their way through a game and just could not shake off their energetic opponents, who had been expertly coached by then Japan coaches Eddie Jones and Steve Borthwick.Despite the heroics of Ayumu Goromaru, who contributed 24 points, Japan looked like they would fall agonisingly short of achieving their first World Cup victory since 1991. But their gallant efforts were rewarded when, spurning the chance to kick three points and so draw the match, they worked the ball left from a last-gasp scrum to Kiwi-born Karne Hesketh, who slid into the corner. Cue pandemonium in the stands and some heavy soul-searching from anyone affiliated to South African rugby.Wales 13-16 Western Samoa (1991)Little was known about the Western Samoa side that pitched up at the national stadium 28 years ago. A packed-out crowd expected some hard-hitting turbulence early on but for the natural order to see Wales emerging victorious. But the Pacific Islanders hadn’t read the script and they unleashed an exhibition of shock and awe to batter Welsh ball-carriers, leaving several players, including Phil May, Richie Collins and Tony Clement, unable to continue. At the end they received much applause from the Welsh crowd for their efforts.It was a result that changed the rugby landscape forever and some of those Samoan players, Brian Lima, Pat Lam, Frank Bunce and Apollo Perelini, went on to enjoy stellar careers. One wag summed it up, by quipping, “Thank heavens we weren’t playing the whole of Samoa.”France 43-31 New Zealand (1999)Such was the magnitude of this quarter-final victory that France’s main channel TF1 presented a newsflash on the result. It’s not hard to see why. At the break, France were 24-10 down, with Jonah Lomu being escorted to the line by some lacklustre tackling from les Bleus. But the second half saw a Kiwi capitulation, as some Gallic magic unfolded, scoring 33 points to New Zealand’s seven. Christophe Lamaison masterminded the comeback and went through the scorecard with 28 points, and flyers Philippe Bernat-Salles and Christophe Dominici joined the party to run in glorious scores. New Zealand were left in a state of mourning.Who would have thought: France came back from the dead against New Zealand in 1999 (Getty Images)Wales 22-21 Australia (1987)This was to be Wales’ last win over their Antipodean rivals for 18 years and gives you some sort of context as to why this result was so unexpected. The Wallabies, under Alan Jones, had been expected to canter to the final but were knocked out in the semi-finals by a Serge Blanco try for France. Even so, there was talk that Australia would just have to pitch up to beat a Welsh side heavily mauled by the All Blacks in the semi-final.The sending-off of Wallaby David Codey changed the picture, giving Richard Moriarty’s men hope, and stellar performances from John Devereaux and Jonathan Davies saw Wales staying in touch until the dying minutes when Adrian Hadley powered over in the corner. It was left to a nerveless touchline Paul Thorburn to clinch the victory and take third place. Who Are The Oldest And Youngest Rugby World Cup Players? Owain Jones looks at eight of the biggest shocks in Rugby World Cup history South Africa 15-12 New Zealand (1995)There will be some die-hard fans from Durban to Pretoria who will argue that the Springboks’ first World Cup win was far from a shock. But to the neutral, an All Blacks side featuring Jonah Lomu, Jeff Wilson, Andrew Mehrtens and Zinzan Brooke, one that had eviscerated all opponents on the way to the final, would be clear favourites to win a second World Cup.Joost van der Westhuizen, Os du Randt and friends had other ideas as they put in the defensive performance of their lives to keep the All Blacks at bay, before Joel Stransky bisected the posts with a sweetly struck drop-goal in extra time to leave the All Blacks, yet again, crestfallen.Ireland 15-6 Australia (2011)Ireland were far from the finished product seen in 2018. They had entered the World Cup with patchy form and sat six places behind Australia in the World Rankings for the Pool C game in Auckland. The Wallabies were reigning Tri-Nations champions and few people expected them to encounter undue complications.Yet the rear-guard action from Paul O’Connell, Donncha O’Callaghan and Stephen Ferris was ferocious and field position allowed them to keep the scoreboard ticking over through Johnny Sexton and Ronan O’Gara. They held on to beat Australia for the first time in the tournament’s history.Fiji 27-30 Uruguay (2019)A few days after thoroughly testing the Wallabies, the Fijians looked to get back to winning ways against lowly Uruguay, a team they had beaten 68-7 earlier in the year. However the Uruguayans produced the performance of their lives, scoring three tries in the first half to go 24-12 up by the break.The Fijians clawed their way back into the match but Uruguay dug deep, exerting such energy and throwing themselves into tackles with such gusto that some of their players began suffering from cramp. Two penalties by Felipe Berchesi ultimately gave los Teros an outstanding victory and one that surely represents their greatest day in the sport.Elation: Uruguay celebrate their stunning win over Fiji at Kamaishi Recovery Memorial Stadium (Getty)Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.

Yet under intense scrutiny in Cardiff, they wilted. Les Bleus served note of their intent by staring down the haka, and despite dominating the first half, the All Blacks failed to properly capitalise on the scoreboard.Early in the second half, Luke McAlister was sin-binned and a try by Thierry Dusautoir set up a grandstand finish. Yannick Jauzion applied the finishing touch with minutes to go and Graham Henry’s men, without a clear kicker, failed to go for the drop-goal that could have rescued the disappointment of a nation.

Face-off: Take the points or kick to the corner?

first_imgShould teams kick for goal at every opportunity to amass points? Or is opting for field position – and tries – a better way to twist the knife? Read our April 2020 issue debate Face-off: Take the points or kick to the corner?TIM HAYWARDEngland rugby supporter“Do you remember England losing to the All Blacks by one point in November 2018 after choosing to kick a penalty to the corner rather than at the posts? I do.Games can be won and lost by the finest of margins. So why is rugby apparently not applying the philosophy of maximising marginal gains that we hear so much about in other sports?These days sports at the highest level seek to optimise every aspect, to nudge every variable in their favour. We now see nutritionists and psychologists, tight-fitting shirts and GPS trackers. So why aren’t the statisticians in rugby advising players on such a crucial issue which can so clearly make the difference between winning and losing?Misguided? England lost 16-15 to New Zealand in 2018 after spurning easy points (Visionhaus/Getty)Over the past three years Owen Farrell’s success rate with the boot has been 78% – an average of 2.3 points per penalty kick. The probability of a kick to the corner leading to a converted try would have to be greater than one in three to be seen as a better option statistically.Ken Quarrie, chief scientist for New Zealand Rugby, took a look at Super Rugby. He calculated that teams opting for a lineout within 15m of the opposition try-line were scoring only 27% of the time – not matching the ‘one in three’ target.So it’s a no-brainer! There has to be an overwhelming and astonishingly good reason not to kick for goal from a penalty.”Having a pop: Damian Stevens of Namibia kicks a penalty during last year’s World Cup (Getty Images)ALAN PEAREYRugby World writer“Rugby is a game of guts and emotion and instinct, not cold calculation. Scientists can do their maths but what about the context and momentum of a match? Attacking mindset: Exeter’s Joe Simmonds kicks to the corner during a Champions Cup tie (Getty Images) Consider a team under the cosh against Exeter or Leinster. Seeing them kick to the corner must fill them with dread as they contemplate the physical and psychological pressure set to follow in defending their line.The Chiefs won’t necessarily score directly from a lineout maul but use it as a bridgehead to launch phase after phase of forward drives in the 22. Often they don’t even bother with the lineout but merely tap and run a penalty.Ask a team whether they would rather face that or see the opposition kick for goal and most would leap at the chance to take the three-point hit and get back upfield to try to exert pressure of their own.Risk and reward: Josh Adams scores in the RWC 2019 semi – after Wales opted for a scrum from a penaltyIt’s not just that. Kicking to the corner whips up the crowd, generating noise and a buzz that gets players’ adrenalin pumping. Michael Leitch fed off that when deciding not to kick at goal against South Africa at RWC 2015 and his reward was the greatest upset in sports history.And even though, in the same tournament, Chris Robshaw’s decision to go for the corner against Wales didn’t pay off, he was staying true to principles.Be honest England fans, you wanted to beat Wales that day, not just draw. People are essentially greedy and Robshaw went for broke. Rugby is all the richer for such boldness.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS What do you think?

[Anglican Communion News Service] British Prime Minister David Cameron has appointed the Rt. Hon. the Lord Luce KG, GCVO to be chairman of the Crown Nominations Commission for its selection of the next Archbishop of Canterbury to succeed the Most Rev. and Rt. Hon. Rowan Williams.Williams has announced that he will stand down on Dec. 31.Commenting on his appointment, Lord Luce said:“It is a great privilege to have been invited by the Prime Minister to chair the Crown Nominations Commission for the selection of the next Archbishop of Canterbury. I approach the task with humility and a strong sense of the responsibility that I and my colleagues on the Commission share.”“I am very conscious of the significance of the Archbishop’s role both nationally and across the world. It is, of course, of great importance both to the Church of England and to the wider community in our country, given the Church’s contribution to our society at all levels. The Archbishop is also the head of world-wide Anglican Communion. And the appointment of an Archbishop of Canterbury also means a great deal for other Christian denominations and for other faiths.”“Archbishop Rowan has made an outstanding contribution in all of these spheres. Finding a worthy successor will not be an easy task for the Commission.”“The responsibility of chairing the Commission is, of course, a heavy one.

Katherine George y el Rev. Canónigo Craig Loya,  y  cuatro líderes de grupos iniciales de trabajo, Sra. Julia Ayala Harris, Sra. Margaret Shannon, Rev. Leng Lim, y el  Rev. Joseph Chambers. El equipo de liderazgo nombrará a un secretario y dos capellanes antes de nuestra próxima reunión.n esta primera reunión, asistieron la Obispo Primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, la Presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados Gay Jennings y el Oficial Ejecutivo de la Convención General Michael Barlowe, quienes nos ofrecieron sus valiosos conocimientos y nos informaron sobre recursos disponibles que nos asistirán en nuestro trabajo.Hemos iniciado el proceso de elaborar una estrategia de participación que nos permita vivir en nuestro compromiso por la transparencia, al tiempo que preservemos la santidad de la conversación sagrada.   Tenemos como objetivo no solamente mostrar nuestro trabajo, sino también provocar un proceso paralelo de dialogo sobre identidad, estructura y cultura a todos los niveles de la iglesia.   Para facilitar ese discernimiento, planeamos ofrecer una gama de oportunidades para obtener sugerencias y retroalimentación de todos los rincones de la iglesia.  Instamos a todos los miembros a reflexionar en oración junto a nosotros y a ofrecer sus conocimientos y sabiduría.  Estas oportunidades se darán a conocer en las próximas semanas.Basándonos en el lenguaje de la Resolución C095, hemos escogido llamarnos Grupo de Trabajo para la Re-Imaginación de la Iglesia Episcopal: Estructuras, gobierno y administración (las siglas en ingles TREC).  Esperamos que esto trasmita el sentido del alcance del marco de nuestro trabajo, así como también nuestro deseo de emprender un peregrinar con toda la iglesia en la medida que descubramos como estamos siendo llamados a ser el Cuerpo de Cristo en el mundo.Que el Espíritu Santo continúe bendiciendo y guiando a la Iglesia a través de este tiempo de cambio y nueva vida.

Sin embargo, miles de españoles se han reunido en varias ciudades pidiendo el cese de la monarquía y la instauración de una república similar a Francia.

El papa Francisco ha dicho que “la puerta está abierta para discutir el celibato” pero algunos medios lo han interpretado que será eliminado “mañana mismo”.
