From the Land of Archbishop Burke

posted by awelborn

A story from the St. Louis paper on the politicians/Communion business. Since I’ve not read any full statement on this issue, it’s hard to comment, but I’ll suggest offhand that the problem with the bishops’ present "stance" is that it […]

Appealing for Oversight

posted by awelborn

In case you’re wondering, I’m trying to put together a post on last week’s bishops’ meeting. I’m waiting a bit to see if any of the Catholic news services are going to put up any substantive news stories. Joe Feuerherd […]

A couple of weeks ago, a memorial Mass for Michael was held here in Birmingham at the Cathedral. The bishop presided and offered a very nice, even charming homily in which he first focused on the Scripture readings of the day, and then turned to Michael, whom he remembered, among other things, as on

Revolutionary Road - Is it just me?
Why am I the only person I know..or even "know" in the Internet sense of "knowing"  - who didn't hate it? I didn't love it, either. There was a lot wrong with it. Weak characterization. Miscasting. Anvil-wielding mentally ill prophets.But here's the thing.Whether or not Yates' original novel in

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
