Former Jesuit Church now University Church of Paderborn


Don't ask me what this is, apart from nothing to do with Catholicism.

Dear Chris,

This is most urgent. On April 24, the legislative assembly for Mexico City hopes to legalize abortion in one of the largest cities in the world.

You see, legislators from Mexico’s leftist parties expect to use the legalizationof abortion in their nation’s capital as a springboard to permit the brutal practice throughout the entire country.
To sign your instant petition, click here.

Despite the fact that most Mexicans are Catholic and oppose abortion, pro-abortion lawmakers and their allies are hard at work not only to legalize abortion, but to force the state to pay for abortions at state run health clinics.

Mexico City is the site of the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the anti-abortion cause. Now is time to make your pro-life voice heard.

Yes, the fight against abortion has no borders. With one click, you can add your voice to this massive petition by sending a personal, respectful email simultaneously to each of the 64 legislators of the Mexico City Legislative Assembly.

Click here to sign your petition!

Thank you for helping me launch this massive petition, because if abortion continues destroying the family on which the future of society depends, and morality is not boldly defended, civilization will soon disintegrate.

You and I cannot remain indifferent.
Thank you so much and God bless you!

P.S. – Please forward this urgent message to as many of your friends or family members as possible – even to your entire address book. Urge them to help stop abortion in Mexico.
Also, pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in reparation for the sins of abortion, for the conversion of sinners, and for society’s return to God.

Late entry in world's smallest altar competition

This time, somewhere near Graz

Shock, horror I prayed in Latin

Undercover reporting from the Diocesan Sunday Newspaper in Brussels. He concludes that a reporter's life has to include reporting on distasteful matters. Next to it is a report of ecumenical progress in Switzerland to cheer readers up.

Viva St Klara!


As they say themselves say, a somewhat different Church.

Their Mass for Animals and People.

Their "Shattered Remains" (not kidding) Mass

The liturgy included smashing of plates on the floor.

Christmas Mass Ecumenical Dialogue Sermon

Seventh Conference of the European Network of Buddhist-Christian Studies

which should be entitled "Forgeting the Pope ever published "Dominus Jesus".

But even that would not stop the conference being hosted by the Diocesan retreat house in Salzburg. One should remember it took them several years before they discovered they were hiring the centre to pro-abortionists.

Weekend getaway


with the Linz Cathedral Parish. Not sure what religion that you will be practicing at the end of it.

St Wendelin,


Patron Saint of Shepherds, pray for the Bishops.

The Glory of the Minor Seminary of Hazebrouck


Much more in English and in French.

A disaster for vocations when the minor seminary system was ended.

French poodles think they have won

but French poodles never win.
