Catholic Political Party in Québec

Wonderful to see a Catholic political party in the land which was once one of the most faithful daughters of Holy Mother Church, thriving with vocations and families devoted to Christ.

Québec remains a land which has been greatly damaged by the pseudo-reforms and the destructive "spirit" of Vatican II. A thriving Catholic culture was entirely uprooted during the "révolution tranquille" ("quiet revolution") of the 1960's and 70's.

"Le ciel est bleu, l'enfer est rouge!" ("Heaven is blue (Union Nationale), hell is red (Liberals)") - Motto of l'Union Nationale, Catholic Québécois political party of the early 20th century.

Egypt: Applause for Rowan Williams

Cathcon translation of Ägypten: Beifall für Rowan Williams

The Islamic University of Cairo has welcomed statements made by the Anglican Primate on sharia law. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams had judged that it was "inevitable", parts of Islamic law would be applied in the UK. That is according to the University of al-Azhar an important contribution to interfaith dialogue. Williams speech – which was in Europe criticised by many - goes "in the right direction".

Europe is dreaming

Serbian Orthodox Church and Post-war Suffering

I hasten to add that there can have been no severer critic than myself of the Serbians in the breakup of Yugoslavia, but they do not deserve this.

There is great joy in heaven over the liberal that repents

Especially when the liberal concerned is Pope Pius IX!

Historian reveals how Pius IX decided to proclaim dogma of Immaculate Conception:

“During this lapse of time, in fact, Pius IX progressively lost trust in the processes of the ‘revolution’ that were taking place in Europe and distanced himself from the liberal Catholic environment, beginning to see in the insurrection movement, as well as in the ‘modernity’ of that time, a dangerous snare for the life of the Church,” Guglietta writes.

The expert points out that “understanding what happened with the thinking of Pius IX in Gaeta is of significant historic relevance” and is an “area of research not yet explored.” Nevertheless, he said, the Pope’s sojourn in Gaeta was fundamental for his decision of proclaiming the Marian dogma of the Immaculate Conception."

Modernism, a snare then, a snare now.

Liberal Christianity is dying

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev the Moscow Patriarchate’s delegate for international relationships, said on February 15 that liberal Christianity is on its way to extinction.

And criticises Rowan Williams for his support of sharia.

If you seek the monument, to liberal Catholicism, one only has to find one of the many closed Catholic Churches.

Discourse of Dr Rowan Williams


on the'Cat Sat On The Mat'

Beyond the specific issues that may or may not arise in relation to the practicalities of recognition or delegation concerning "the", we must inevitably look to other areas, in other frameworks of life, wherein a "the" is employed. I am, myself, widely believed to be "The" Archbishop of Canterbury. Whether this is or is not the case - and one can imagine circumstances in which it both was and, at the same time, was not - must remain a discussion beyond the confines of this disquisition. But if ever I am called upon to describe myself as "The" Archbishop of Canterbury, I do so not in the sense that I am in any way singular in comparison to other Archbishops of Canterbury, past, present or future, but rather in the sense that I am, at this precise moment in the space/time continuum, the - or more precisely "The" - Archbishop of Canterbury.

But in a very real sense, not one of the Catholic ones.

Coming next week, The Sharia court sits in judgement. Sharia and Dr Williams have this in common- eccentric judgement.
