Re: St John Bosco

Bishop Williams and the Salesians are being criticised for dancing in Liverpool.......... but there doesn't appear to be rotational movement in the reliquary. http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2013/01/liturgical-dance-not-dead-yet.html No wonder Abp Kelly has asked for his cards!

Re: Year of Faith

Fr Chris Gorton, parish priest at the Good Shepherd in Colne, Lancashire has organised the production of a Porta Fidei badge. Fr Chris says, 'My hope is that people will wear the badge as a statement of faith and that people will ask them about it and so hear the words "the door of faith is alw...

Re: When is the time for adoration and confession?.

Quite a few questions there Helen. Picking-up on several of them with my views - I am not suggesting that any are definitive answers! Confessions during Mass. I have come across this in various places including Westminster Cathedral. Like you, I wonder to what extend one can 'miss' part of Mass to g...

Re: BJHN conference speech

he'd be pushing for an entire revision of not just antiphons but the whole Missal! (Even in the Sacred College there is a polarity on matters liturgical - Martini/Pell) Cardinal Martini of happy memory? Antiphons and the Missal would be the least of it! If only he had been thirty years younger: per...

Re: Theology

In my recent reading I have been looking at Christianity and Buddhism. Paul Knitter makes a strong case for a change in thinking in "Without Buddha I could not be a Christian". In particular we need to get away from a dualist position with God out there somewhere.Many of our saints have s...

Re: Catholic periodicals

I'm a keen subscriber to The Tablet and read it from cover to cover. I do not agree that the Olympic coverage was gutwrenching as I was much involved with More than Gold and the torch relay and delighted that Catholics were working with other denominations to get our message out there! Did we 'get ...

Re: The wickedness of face cream

Parish musicians practise – we have to – but is ours the only parish where the readings often sound as though they've never been previously seen? I am sure your parish is not alone on this one. Getting volunteers to read can be a real challenge in the first place, and I imagine anything like mandat...
