Minneapolis-St. Paul…sigh.

Hardest Archdiocese in the world to figure out, it seems. Strong support of Latin in the liturgy, both according to the Novus Ordo and the Tridentine liturgy (post corrected, per Tim F!) ,..on the other hand… controversies about a priest […]

posted by awelborn

A piece in Christianity Today looks at the DIdache – the brief, but rich manual of Church teaching that most scholars believe dates anywhere from the late 1st to early 2nd century. Interesting to see a Protestant perspective. Gashwin Gomes […]

Brave Heart?
I don't know about you, but one of effects of childbirth on me was a compulsion to spill the details. All of them.The whole thing was fascinating to me, so of course I assumed everyone else should be fascinated as well in the recounting of every minute of labor, describing the intensity of discomfor
