Sound sense

on Belgian Cardinal in British press.

"You cite Cardinal Daneels in support of the notion that the Pope should 'stop Aids' by declaring the use of condoms permissible. With all respect to that venerable prelate, whose relentless progressivism is so charmingly old-fashioned, it is not the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on the intrinsic wrong of artificial contraception that kills: it is sexual promiscuity that kills."

Before and after

The liturgical vandals arrived in Monschau, Germany.

Feast of the Assumption


When you follow her,
You will not go astray;
When you pray to her,
You will not despair;
When you think of her,
You will not err;
When she holds you up,
You will not fall;
When she protects you,
You will not fear;
When she leads you,
You will not be fatigued.
When she favors you,
You will arrive safely;
She keeps her Son
from striking us;
She keeps the devil
from hurting us;
She keeps our virtues
from escaping us;
She keeps our merits
from being destroyed;
She keeps our graces
from being lost. St Bernard
