That's a real shock. I might need a whole half of a second to recover from that.
If you can stomach reading the remarks after the article, you'll find that the commentors on the Washington Post forum are enlighteningly clueless.

The secular persecutions have started, and we're first in line.

The Diocese of Orange bought the Chrystal Cathederal!
Apparently they were jealous over tasteless cathederal in Los Angeles and likely wanted to show them that when it comes to tacky architecture, Orange is a force with which to be reckoned!
God help the church in California!

That is heinous.

Can that Evangelical idol to iconoclasm even be wreckovated?

Well, if it were green it would bear an uncanny resemblence to the Emerald City. Perhaps the Diocese of Orange is playing the munchkin card? :facepalm:

I really prefer the old school Gothic look, myself.

Is Bosco more Catholic (for the obvious reason) than Ovaltine?

I have been waiting for the three-and-a-half years, for the corrected translation of the Mass.

It is finally here, this Sunday, the First Sunday of Advent, 2011.

WHOO-HOO!

Went to the local Catholic Bookstore to pick up a Daily Missal.

Me: I'm shocked that you guys still have these in stock.

Clerk: Well we just got a new shipment in, some people are waiting for the burgundy ones, and some want the editions that just have English with them and no Latin.

Me: Latin is fine with me, maybe I'll even learn some Latin one day.

Customer hanging out at register: [Starts saying something in Latin I don't understand]

Me: Well I'm way far away from that. I just came into the Church last spring.

Customer: Well you missed a lot then.

Me: That's what I hear.

Clerk: Well they are starting to move back to some of the Latin

Customer: I've missed the Latin, I wish we'd go back to it. Vatican II was like cutting our own throats. The whole world would be a better place if the 60's and 70's never happened.

Me: This is a story of a friend of a friend type thing, but I knew someone who was talking to an older priest that said they used to hold mass with a cheeseburger and pop.

Customer: Well all those guys are dead or dying now.

Me: It will be interesting to see where the Church goes in the next few years.

Right? We'd be way better off without pencils and Livonia. Dark years, indeed.

Polish far-right's 'no gay sex' logo sparks anger

The homosexual community in Poland -- where more than 90 percent of the 38-million-strong population is Roman Catholic -- has in the past complained of living in a "climate of fear".
Ya' think? :lol:

There's a guy like that here in St. Joe, MO. He runs a little Catholic store called Salve Regina and I think he would completely repeal V2 if he could. He goes so far as to refuse to carry any materials on the Rosary that include the Luminous Mysteries.

What are the Luminous Mysteries? I know nothing of the Rosary, or almost nothing. Enlighten us please.

jo, the Rosary is the flagship of formal Catholic prayer and it traditionally had 15 mysteries (events in the life of Christ and Mary) that one was to contemplate while saying it. However, several years ago, five new ones were added and the whole scheme of praying them throughout the week had to be changed in order to accommodate them.

Originally, you said the Joyous mysteries (about the birth of Christ) on Mondays and Thursdays; the Sorrowful Mysteries (about the death of Christ) on Tuesdays and Fridays; and the Glorious Mysteries (about the resurrection of Christ) on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Sunday's set depended on what time of year it was. To me, and most other traditionalists, this seems to be rather complete. But the Luminous Mysteries were added in to cover the teachings of Christ or other actions and were slammed into the Thursday spot and everything else had to be shuffled to fit it. The Luminous Mysteries were made optional, since it must have been anticipated that they would not be universally accepted. I don't say them, myself, as you can probably guess. I like to get my Rosary literature from Salve Regina for this reason.

Just to clarify...
