This picture, which was shared by Patrick Kelly on Facebook, caught my eye today. I must say when I heard on the news that the Pope had resigned my first thoughts certainly were that it was a hoax. Sadly not, but I have written about that already. For now, remember that laughter is really good therapy. I hope this brings a smile to your face and brightens up your day. Have a wonderful weekend.
The “spirit of Vatican II’ is a phrase that always causes me great consternation. It is my opinion that those who are less than pleased with what the Council Fathers actually had to say, which is communicated in the various Vatican II documents that flowed from the Council, constantly refer to what they ‘think’ the Council was saying as the ‘spirit’ of Vatican II.

“…but the Church has with firmness maintained that life in|
the womb is ever sacred and no one hasthe right to end it.”
I must give credit to Michael Shackleton for the good editorial in this week’s edition of The Southern Cross. The editorial, entitled “Fruit Of The Womb”, discusses the sad reality of abortion. It expresses the urgent need for Catholics to stop simply silently accepting the immorality that society wishes to impose on them, even it is ‘written’ into the laws of the country. Michael Shackleton rightly highlights that this ‘silence’ “scorns the Church’s strong and categorical teaching that what is legally passed into civil law is not inevitably passed into morally acceptable conduct.”
