Toleration and the Reformation

Reactions 
written by Joseph Lecler SJ in 1956 was in many ways not just a history but a preparation for the Second Vatican Council. The Church got more than she bargained for, the Fathers of the Council junking a draft on tolerance and sunstituting a text on religious freedom.

Misplaced tolerance and freedom are two short ways to let evil prevail.

Milner Hall Winchester

Reactions 
The first Catholic Chapel dedicated, and in which the first Catholic Bishop was consecrated and the Benediction of the first Abbess was performed in England since the Reformation. Now the parish hall for the Catholic parish, it is available for events. It could be put to better use.

I remember s group of 100 of among the top intellectuals in the UK parting like the Red Sea when a colleague from university days arrived in a wheelchair striken with AIDs. Only two people would talk to the guy. Guilty consciences about their own behaviour, I suspect. The same behaviour that is promoted by the gay dating website as supported by the Franciscan Sisters.
