The Dew of the HOLY SPIRIT

Dear Readers,

There is no point of me repeating here what is thoroughly covered elsewhere other than to recommend that you keep close watch at Rorate Caeli and Father Z, there links are on the left:

The SPIRIT is moving over the waters!

We have +Williamson’s humble and contrite apology to the Holy Father. "Take me up and throw me into the sea; then the sea will quiet down for you; for I know it is because of me that this great tempest has come upon you."

News that +Cardinal Castrillion do Hoyos has stated that "Full communion will come. In our discussions, Bishop Fellay recognized the Second Vatican Council, he recognized it theologically. Only a few difficulties remain.”

News that a half million souls, their priests and bishops in the Traditional Anglican Communion may be home be Easter.

And of course, because of all of this, ‘the Forces of evil gather against the Holy Father and against his mission of unity.”

And we can add the election of the ecumenically oriented Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Kiril I.

What a week…and can it be true…the SSPX could be home by Candlemas…next Monday?

Excommunication lifted

As expected over the last few days, Pope Benedict XVI has today lifted the excommuncation of the four bishops of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X, illicitly consecrated by the late Archbishops Marcel Lefebvre and Castro de Mayer.

Without any doubt, this is a joyous day and time to sing a Te Deum!

Visit the blog roll on the left and visit Father Z's What does the prayer really say? or Rorate Caeli the most current news and comment.

Pope Benedict is a great and courageous man. He is going to take hard criticism for this.

All of us need to stand by him in this decision for the sake of Catholic Tradition.

Father Richard John Neuhaus, Requiescat in Pace

Fr. Richard John Neuhaus slipped away today, January 8, shortly before 10 o’clock, at the age of seventy-two. He never recovered from the weakness that sent him to the hospital the day after Christmas, caused by a series of side effects from the cancer he was suffering. He lost consciousness Tuesday evening after a collapse in his heart rate, and the next day, in the company of friends, he died. More here...
