ANGLICAN SOUTHERN CONE: Don´t Cry For Me Argentina, ¨I´ll try and explain how I feel¨

·It won't be easy, you'll think it strange--When I try to explain how I feel--That I still need your love after all that I've done·

Bishop Greg Venables, Argentina,
 ·still needs our love after all that he´s done·
Southern Cone's Provincial Synod elects Chilean Bishop Hector "Tito" Zavala the province's new Presiding Bishop
 Chilean Bishop Hector "Tito" Zavala, Presiding Bishop-elect, Southern Cone
 ·It won´t be easy, you´ll think it strange·
¨The tenth Synod of the Province of the Southern Cone of America, meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 1-5 November, 2010, has elected Bishop Hector "Tito" Zavala of Chile as its next Presiding Bishop replacing Bishop Gregory Venables. Bishop Zavala becomes the province's first Presiding Bishop of Chilean extraction. Bishop Zavala was vice-chairman of Southern Cone's Provincial Executive Council.

The Presiding Bishop of the Southern Cone is elected for a three year term and may be elected for more than one term. Under the provisions of the Southern Cone's constitution and canons metropolitical authority is vested in the Provincial Executive Council which the Presiding Bishop chairs. The Provincial Executive Council is made up of all the provincial bishops of the Southern Cone.

On October 1, 2010 Canon Kenneth Kearon, the Secretary General of the Anglican Consultative Council, wrote Bishop Zavala, requesting that he withdraw from membership in the Inter Anglican Standing Commission on Unity Faith and Order as his standing with the IASCUFO been reduced from member to consultant after Bishop Venables allegedly failed to respond to Kearon's request for clarification as to the current state of his interventions into other provinces. Bishop Venables subsequently disputed Kearon's claim that he had that he had not responded to Kearon's request.¨ HERE

Bishop Venables will remain Bishop of Argentina and Northern Argentina.

Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance
And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They are not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me
don´t cry for me Argentina
Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you.
But all you have to do is look at me to know
That every word is true

Prayers also for the Argentine, and the misled and also the misleaders...
