Tragedy at Winnipeg:

The Canadian Catholic Bishops' Statement on Humanae Vitae. Humanae Vitae will be forty years old next year.

This one made from an irrigation valve.


The name that thrusts a sword into the heart of any monarchist, now transformed into a Carmelite monastery- and one which does not have a "people's altar", as far as can be seen from the pictures, and one where the nuns retain traditional dress.

The history for those that read German big time.

Sister Joan Chittister, OSB

takes a representative sample of Australian Catholicism and hears what she wants to hear.

"Forget it. The answer was direct: "Nothing will happen," most of them said. "We won't pay any attention to it," some said. "If anybody wants it, let them take it," a few said. "But not me," many said. End of discussion."

Just you wait, Sister.

Our Lady, Gentle Queen of Palestine

Laetatus sum in his. The desire and hope of the just for the coming of the kingdom of God, and the peace of his church. Psalm 121

1 I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go into the house of the Lord.
2 Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together.
4 For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord: the testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.
5 Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David.
6 Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance for them that love thee.
7 Let peace be in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers.
8 For the sake of my brethren, and of my neighbours, I spoke peace of thee.
9 Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.

1 canticum graduum huic David laetatus sum in his quae dicta sunt mihi in domum Domini ibimus
2 stantes erant pedes nostri in atriis tuis Hierusalem
3 Hierusalem quae aedificatur ut civitas cuius participatio eius in id ipsum
4 illic enim ascenderunt tribus tribus Domini testimonium Israhel ad confitendum nomini Domini
5 quia illic sederunt sedes in iudicium sedes super domum David
6 rogate quae ad pacem sunt Hierusalem et abundantia diligentibus te
7 fiat pax in virtute tua et abundantia in turribus tuis
8 propter fratres meos et proximos meos loquebar pacem de te
9 propter domum Domini Dei nostri quaesivi bona tibi

Early signs of a tough Pope

when Zapatero snubs Pope at Mass for 'the family'

"Attempts are being made to organise the life of society on the basis of subjective and ephemeral desires alone with no reference to … the dignity of each human being and his inalienable rights and duties,' he said."

Ecumenical Organ Donation Service

I have heard the accusation more than once that patients' lives in Germany are ended prematurely to allow their organs to be used. Austria has just moved to an opt out rather than an opt in scheme.

Meet Prof. Dr. theol. habil. Bernd Jochen Hilberath


Director of the Institute for Ecumenical Research (whose founding director was one Hans Kueng, who has just received a prize from his old friends, the German freemasons).

He has just been interviewed in the once reliably Catholic newspaper Die Furche.

"Naturally my colleagues say to me, "No, Hilberath, I have always said that the only in Rome will the Vatican Council be interpreted" Then I can only say- I don't believe that this is an authentic interpretation of the Council.

For Professor of so many titles, Hilberath, there is only one Council and that is the last one. Forget Rome, Scripture and Tradition, Professor Hilberath has got it right or so his intellectual arrogance believes.

Reminds one of Martin Luther one of his bible translations. "It is translated this way, because I Dr Martin Luther say so."

How Jesuits say Mass in Austria


See earlier post including picture of How Jesuits pray. On Facebook, there is a Jesuits Fan Club for people who think Jesuits are the best priests in the world. I am not a member.

Our Lady of Sorrows, Ried, Austria

Near perfect expression of real and spiritual truth.

The Real Presence

Sacred Gift

Bishop heading in the right direction.

Church's very own French Revolution


Even such a conservative priest as Father Weigl was writing books like this in 1962. All were expecting the Holy Spirit and all they got was the lousy. closed in on itself, "spirit of Vatican II"

There is hope!


Crowning of Marian image in Germany.

Stealth priestesses from India


process the chalice of Paul Josef Nardini at his beatification.

You with us!

New Songs for Youth and Community from the House of Peace, Austria.

But does the You refer to them or to God?

The Chapel where it is difficult to distinguish between the lecturn (which they will call the "altar of the Word") and the altar.

Disgraced Archbishop Weakland

was attacking the Benedictine restoration even before Cardinal Ratzinger was Pope.

I happened to bring the news of Weakland's resignation to Michael Davies.

"Weakland's gone"

"Good" and he carried on drinking his beer.

Mr Davies on Weakland.

"The cover article in the June 7-14 issue of the Jesuit journal America contained the good news that Archbishop Rembert Weakland is upset. Anything that upsets this Archbishop is good news for every Catholic with a true sensus Catholicus, a sense of what being a Catholic really means."

Feast of St Anne


Novena to St Anne
