Dallas, United States - August 1, 2020 /PressCable/ —

A new prayer request service has been launched by The Bethany Center in the parish of El Calvario. It aims to help anyone in need of prayers to get the help they need. A confidential form is provided for anyone seeking prayers for health, their job, family or other needs.

By entering their request in the provided form, priests will pray and offer Holy Mass for their needs. The request is a secret trust, fully confidential, and there is never a charge.

The Bethany Center of Community Promotion, or CEPROCOBE, was created in 2012 as a new initiative with the aim to evangelize through the service of charity to the most needy people.

The core focus of the Bethany Center is to work together with local residents to build a more equal society. The center is open to all people regardless of their creed, because they state that the reign of God transcends belief systems.

Some of the most pressing needs that the parish seeks to overcome are poverty, the marginalization of people, the meager opportunities for much of the youth to study, undernourishment of children and more.

Now they aim to identify high-risk situations and propose a series of programs to provide long-lasting and life-changing results. While praying to God, the team puts its best foot forward.

The Bethany Center states: “Encouraged by our faith in Christ, life in abundance for the people, Bethany Center offers programs which help to combat the hunger of children and adults, as well as sickness or lack of education.”

“The programs of the Bethany Center aim at being spots where an effort is being made to live these dimensions, thus promoting true living together of people. We believe there is room for all without exclusion.”

They also have social outreach programs planned, and invite local residents to show solidarity with those who have less.

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Aug 10, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington.

HONG KONG — A homemade, remote-controlled bomb intended to "kill or to harm" riot control officers was detonated as they deployed against renewed violence in Hong Kong over the weekend, police said Monday, in a further escalation of destructive street battles gripping the business hub. The "loud thud" Sunday night close to riot officers who had been clearing away a protester-built road block marked the first known use of an explosive device during protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement. "It exploded less than 2 meters (yards)...

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced.

President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans. In exchange, he said China would buy American farm goods. But the two sides reported no progress on basic disputes that sparked the 15-month-old fight that threatens global economic growth.

Aug 10, 2020

HONG KONG — Apple became the latest company targeted for Chinese pressure over protests in Hong Kong after the ruling Communist Party's main newspaper criticized the tech giant Wednesday for a smartphone app that allows activists to report police movements. HKmap.live, designed by an outside supplier and available on Apple Inc.'s online store, "facilitates illegal behavior," the People's Daily said in a commentary. "Is Apple guiding Hong Kong thugs?" the newspaper said. Beijing has pressed companies including Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways to take the government's side against the protests, which are in their fourth month. Apple didn't immediately respond...
