*Catholic priest suspended for telling Catholics what the Church teaches about abortion, cohabitation, and homosexuality. He apparently wasn't "pastoral" enough. How many priests and bishops are going to rot in hell for being "pastoral"?
*Solemn High Mass on Saturday, September 24, in celebration of the feast of Our Lady of Mercy, in Cleveland, Ohio.
*Pilgrimage to Aylesford's Priory slated for October in the UK.
*Request for the Traditional Latin Mass could give new life to a closed church in Streator, Illinois (Diocese of Peoria).
*Gregorian Chant Workshop slated for October in Los Angeles. (pdf)
*Regularization of the SSPX fraught with possible pitfalls. Please pray for Bishop Fellay and the other bishops and priests of the society.
*Louie Verrecchio's take on the SSPX communiqué from the CDF.
*Addition of new saints and prefaces to the 1962 missal could be coming soon.
*Bishop Blase Cupich encourages priests and seminarians not to participate in prayer vigils outside abortion mills. When I was a seminarian at the Josephinum, Cupich was the rector there, and I know from personal experience that Msgr. Blase Cupich was, at least at that time, an ecclesiastical climber whose chief concern was his image. I never trusted him. He was also opposed to the Traditional Latin Mass when bishop of Rapid City. So this is no surprise to me at all.
*Ah, the spin at CatholicCulture.org! Is there no end to it? CatholicCulture ignores the fact that there is no Traditional Latin Mass in San Rafael Tlanalapan, Mexico... so they just leave the term "traditional Catholic" inaccurately hanging. (The term "traditionalist Catholic" originates from the Compass Direct article, and is not used by either the bishops of Mexico or the indigenous people.) No TLM, no traditional Catholics... just simple, NOVUS ORDO Catholics (who apparently practice an odd blend of "indigenous and Catholic rituals").
*Ahhh, those fruits of Vatican II! More practicing Muslims in France than practicing Catholics.
*Homosexuals exhibit just how twisted and hate filled they are.
*Perverts of a feather fly together. Why homosexuals support abortion.
*Archbishop Dolan warns Obama that he and Catholic bishops could be on a collision course due to Barry's attack on DOMA.
*Entitled not to suffer natural disasters? Someone has to pay, might as well be the scientists. Is this the "Inquisition of the Holy Entitlement"?
*CIA agents... err... I mean hikers (yeah... "hikers", because hiking along the Iranian border is every American hiker's dream come true! Why just the other day I saw a travel agency add for a vacation package to the Iraq/Iran border... sure happens all the time!) were released from an Iranian prison. (I know, not the kind of news you would expect here, but this whole "hiker" thing has become a pet peeve of mine.)
