(The Voice SLU photo)The Dominica Government, through acting prime minister Reginald Austrie, has congratulated Archbishop Felix who was named Cardinal emeriti by Pope Francis on Sunday, January 12, 2014.“Pope Francis’ decision to select Archbishop Felix as one of the nineteen new cardinals from around the world shows wisdom and foresight in expanding the Church in its development,” Austrie told members of the press on Monday, January 13, 2014.He noted that Archbishop Felix, who was ordained as a priest in 1956, has served with distinction throughout his long career in the Catholic Church.“Having been ordained bishop in 1981 and served in that position for twenty-seven years, overseeing the Diocese of Castries, St. Georges and Roseau, Archbishop has been a shining example of what a Catholic priest should be,” Austrie said in commendation of Archbishop Felix.“We in Dominica are very proud of Archbishop’s achievements in the Catholic Church,” he added and highlighted Archbishop Felix’s decision to return home after retirement as a demonstration of “his love for country and desire to play his part in the spiritual development of the people”.“On behalf of the government and people of Dominica, in particular the Catholic community, I congratulate Cardinal Felix select and wish him great success in his new vocation”. “We will continue to pray for him asking God to give him the guidance he needs to continue his ministry,” Austrie stated.Archbishop Felix will be formally instated during a Consistory which will be held in Rome on February 22, 2014 along with eighteen other Cardinals. One of the functions of the Cardinals of the Catholic Church is to elect a new Pontiff. However, due to his age, Archbishop Felix will not be eligible to vote for a new pope. Archbishop Felix served as Principal of St. Mary’s Academy from 1972–1975; Associate General Secretary of the Caribbean Conference of Churches from 1975–1981, President of the Antilles Episcopal Conference from 1991–1997 and President of the Caribbean Conference of Churches from 1981–1986.As Archbishop of Castries, he was the metropolitan of the Province which comprises the Archdiocese of Castries in St. Lucia, St. George’s in Grenada, Roseau in Dominica and St. John’s-Basseterre in Antigua and St. Kitts.He has also served on various Vatican committees, including the Pontifical Council for Family Life, the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, Cor Unum and the Synodal Council for America.Since his retirement as archbishop, Felix moved back to Dominica where he has been helping out in various parishes and served as parish Priest of St. Patrick, Grand Bay and St. Mark in Soufriere.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Jari Terjepit di Sandaran Bangku, Penumpang ini Gugat American Airlines dan SkyWest Airlines

Sumber: istimewa“Kami bekerja sama dengan mitra kami untuk menghubungi korban (Stephen Keys) dan menanyakan bagaimana kondisi terkini dari lukanya itu. Besar harapan kami dapat menyelesaikan masalah ini dengan cepat,” tulis pihak SkyWest Airlines dalam sebuah keterangan tertulis.“Dikarenakan proses litigasi yang masih berlangsung, kami tidak bisa berkomentar lebih jauh,” tandasnya.Menurut gugatan yang diajukan tertanggal 5 Desember kemarin, kejadian ini sendiri terjadi pada tanggal 9 September lalu, dimana Stephen berada di dalam penerbangan 3095 yang dijadwalkan bertolak dari Reno, Nevada menuju Los Angeles pada pukul 12.40 waktu setempat.Kala itu, Stephen tengah berupaya untuk menangkat sandaran tangan untuk mengambil sabuk pengaman, namun sial, jari kelingking tangan kanannya malah terjepit di dalam lubang kecil yang terletak di bawah sandaran tangan tersebut.“Mekanisme pegas yang tertanam di dalam lubang inilah yang akhirnya menjerat jari kelingking dari Stephen,” ujar pihak penggugat.Ketika sadar jarinya ‘terperangkap’, Stephen mencoba untuk tenang dan terus mencoba untuk melepaskan jarinya tersebut.“Pada saat itu, penumpang lain mulai sadar bahwa ada sesuatu yang tidak beres dengan Stephen dan tak pelak ia menjadi sorotan seisi kabin – ia menjadi tontonan,” lanjut si penggugat.Setelah lebih kurang satu jam berada di kondisi jari terjepit, pesawat akhirnya mendarat dan pihak maskapai lalu memanggil petugas pemadam kebakaran untuk membantu Stephen melepaskan jarinya ini.Baca Juga: Kisruh Pemesanan Kursi, Swiss Airlines Hadapi Gugatan dari PenumpangNamun sial (lagi), petugas pemadam tidak berhasil membuat Stephen bernapas lega.
