Archbishop of Salzburg

refuses birthday present to protest abortion

Archbishop Alois Kothgasser of Salzburg has refused to receive an honorary birthday present from the Austrian president in protest of the practice of abortion in the country.

The Archbishop said his actions were meant to express his disagreement with the construction of an abortion clinic financed by the regional government several years ago. “The defence of life in all of its stages is not a subject that is up for discussion. The right of the human person to self-determination cannot include the possibility of killing another human being,” Archbishop Kothgasser said during the program “Report” broadcast by ORF-TV."

A Good Bishop! Difficult to talk about humanism if you suppport abortion, and to talk about justice, if you don't pray for the Poor Souls in purgatory.

They talk about God's creation


but no longer of the divine.

The Holy Name of Jesus eludes them.

No less than seven Bishops' conferences loosing the plot SIMULTANEOUSLY!

The Germans in Plenary.

Roman collars, they have not

Cardinal Bertone speaks II

But what does the Cardinal really say?

The news that there is to be a covering letter dates, I think, to before Christmas. I think one can safely assume that the covering letter is done.

The only reason for the delay appears to me to be "some other factor" that no-ne kmows about. Even the German bishops, however, have now accepted it at a "fait accompli".

Doubtless the French bishops are plotting their revenge in a hundred years time, as they did after the First Council of the Vatican. Message to future generations

Don't let them get away with it again!

Madman attacks Pope

If you look at the video. The Pope's heart did not miss a beat.

and the Swiss guard decided to look like the decoration on a cake while everyone else joined in. Originally the Swiss guards were employed because they had a reputation for being vicious. Not today!

V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Benedictus.

V. Let us pray for Benedict, our Pope.

R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]

R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. [Ps 40:3]

Pater Noster, Ave Maria. Our Father, Hail Mary.

Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum Benedictum., quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.

O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Benedict, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

The Pope like St Benedict, blessed in name and nature.

Collegiality sucks!

So many Bishops' conferences, so little to say about the salvific work of Christ.

Feast of St Norbert


Hammer of heretics, champion of the Blessed Sacrament.

Of your charity, pray for the repose of my father-in-law, also named Norbert.
