Did Cardinal Kasper manipulate Jewish opinion?

in an attempt to stop the indult

Just where did the initiative come from for these concerns?

Claims that for over a thousand years that Catholicism was Marcionist are simply fantastic. Have they never heard of a breviary? About 30 psalms and old testament canticles a day. Rather fewer in modern breviaries but still.

The liturgy according to the father of modern liturgy, Odo Casel did not originate in the service of the Temple but in a Greek mystery cult. If you are looking for anti-semitism, he is a big candidate, especially as he was influenced by the arch anti-semite and father of modern biblical scholarship, Ernest Renan who denied Christ was Jewish.

A test for Cathcon Talks

Mixed Charismatic Community

in Brussels, Belgium.

No good ever came of mixed or double monasteries throughout history. Most common cause of break-up, the female side thought that they knew better.

Strange that Cardinal Danneels encourages these ersatz forms of religious life but is hostile to the Latin Mass.

Cardinal Meisner interculturates



First he presided over a Carnival Mass in his Cathedral, now this. He is a a Conservative. He probably is when measured by the standards of the other German bishops.

Alien Invasion!

Father Joe takes Cathcon seriously and writes it up so much better than I do. I put it down to a lifetime of preaching.
