Perhaps he will come to Belgium instead. Cardinal Danneels would lap up anything he said about the liturgy. And if you really want to know where Marini and his kind wish to take the liturgy, come to Belgium. A model reform, I think not.
Under their feet their mocking cloth can be seen.
Here they take leave of their senses.
If you can't be sure that the Consecrated Host was at their feet in the picture above, it is here.
Post-Communion- they call this the heart of the faith. What faith?
That Oxenfort gets a meeting is quite conceivable. The spokesman for the Archdiocese, Stephan Schmidt, said yesterday in any case, that Meisner, of course, was concerned with such issues. He will wait for Oxenfort’s letter and then decide.
In any case, Oxenfort is sure, " . . . I love to speak to God in Low German. He certainly understands me! "
Masses in Low German have been celebrated regularly and for many years in St. Lambertus, regardless of whether or not it is carnival time. Different to Masses in Eller and Bilk: During the carnival period people, dressed for carnival mixed with others who do not dress up attend Masses in Low German, some in fancy dress costume (by the way, also banned- Cathcon- for instance devils are seen, as reported here!). Here priests not in birettas (alas!) but carnival hats!
Cathcon comment- these fools (that’s what the carnival people call themselves) would be the first to say that Latin is incomprehensible, but it is universally understood- they have just replaced it with an incomprehensible German dialect. They think God lives in Düsseldorf.
"The Pope smiled a welcome to university students who showed up at his general audience in Vatican City.
As he entered the audience hall, they shouted 'Freedom!' in reference to his right to free speech.
One banner held by students read, 'If the Pope won't come to La Sapienza, La Sapienza will come to the Pope.'
The Vicar of Rome, Cardinal Camillo Ruini, invited Romans to show their support for the Pope by coming to St Peter's Square on Sunday for his weekly prayer."
So far, the Catholic Church has not expressed an opinion about the speech of the FPÖ politician Winter. Now the Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) Chief Busek attacks Cardinal Schönborn.
The former Austrian Vice-Chancellor and chairman Erhard Busek has heavily criticized the silence of the Catholic Church after the speech of the Graz FPÖ politician, Susanne Winter. She had massively attacked Islam and its founder .
Busek told OE24: "The Church should speak out clearly."
The interview with OE24:
The State Prosecutor is investigating Graz FPÖ politician, Susanne winter:
How do you assess the statements of Dr Winter?
Erhard Busek: I think it is a disaster, to introduce European and global issues within the framework of the election campaign in Graz in this manner. That is the most promitive populism, which does not fit in the framework of democracy.
Where is an outcry from the churches? I expect of the Christian churches a public response: a statement for greater understanding, not only for greater tolerance. Susanne Winter shows that she is incredibly primitive.
Are you satisfied with the initial reaction of the political parties?
No. Of the political parties, I expect more. But I expect a real outcry and criticism from religious communities, of believing people with convictions. This should not be avoided.
