Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Local Press Coverage of Yesterday's Ordinations

The Lincoln Journal Star did a fine story on yesterday's events which can be found here.
Be sure to click on the audio file on the left side to hear the press conference with Dario Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos.

Audio of press conference here if I did things correctly.....

QUOTE Those attending the ordination service had an opportunity to experience it in its highest form, with lots of incense, pomp and ceremony. The altar was set up in the Cathedral with the cross atop a pedestal, flanked by candles and flowers. Throughout much of the service, Hoyos and other priests faced the altar, with their backs to the congregation, directing their prayers symbolically toward God.In the news conference the cardinal got a laugh when he turned his back on reporters, demonstrating the rudeness of not looking at the person one is addressing. When the priest faces the altar, both he and the congregation behind him have their faces turned toward God, Hoyos said.During the Mass Friday, he said, “I was not alone. I was accompanied by the people of faith. I was with them, giving our face to God.” UNQUOTE
