Writing the Pope

posted by awelborn

The word is going out and around and about – a move to write to Pope Benedict and communicate your views on the rumored liturgical developments. Tough, since they are rumored, but rumors that have taken a solid shape since 10 French bishops publicly indicated it was coming – by disagreeing with whatever it is. So…the message that’s going around is asking for people to write in support of such a move, but of course…you can write whatever you like.

The Pope’s regular mailing address is:

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

00120 Via del Pellegrino

Citta del Vaticano

The Pope’s email address (for English correspondence) is: benedictxvi@vatican.va

Just as important, if not more – the Papal prayer intentions for November, with which he invites us all to join:

General: That, everywhere in the world, an end be put to all forms of terrorism.

Missionary: That through the effort of believers, together with living forces of society, the new and old chains which prevent the development of the African Continent may be broken.

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

Books for Lent
No, I'm not going to ask you about your Lenten reading lists...although I might.Not today, though. This post is about giving books to others. For Lent, and a long time after that. You know how it goes during Lent: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, right?Well, here's a worthy recipient for your hard-

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
