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!

Suffering From The Church

It is a truism which reflects human nature that we suffer from The Church as much as we do for Her. Recently the Vatican, apparently not being aware of SPPX Bishop Williamson's way unorthodox stance on the Holocaust (he is a Holocaust denier) included the man in a return-to-the-flock overture towards the SPPX.

Basically, here's the bottom line, and it ought to bring to a halt or at least give pause to those witch hunters with pitchforks and staves chasing Pope Benedict around the Vatican right now. He didn't know. From the NYT.

QUOTE In an interview in Thursday’s issue of Corriere della Sera, the Vatican official in charge of negotiations with the society, Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, said the Vatican had not known of Bishop Williamson’s views until after the revocation order had been signed. UNQUOTE
