Coming soon to a Church near you.

Reactions 
Laity empowered by a supposed priest shortage. The argument is flawed. The proportion of priests to people has detiorated a bit in the last forty years but nothing like as much as the proponents of lay involvement would have you believe.

And the Cardinal König Art Prize 2007 goes to......

Reactions 
Six and Petrisch (English translation, sick and petrified) not for their contribution to the Catholic Faith but for their work in the media of concrete. Come to think of it, perhaps the Freudians are right as much of ultra-modern Church design depends on a concrete fettish.

Reactions 
Flashback 2006 as Church given over to wine tasting.
