Is this for real? A left-wing Pope recognising the martyrdom of those killed by communists in the Spanish Civil War? Who would have thought?

Fra Angelico is an undisputed master, but blonde, borderline albino Mary just doesn't fit the traditional iconography of the Blessed Mother.

How incomprehensible is God's love for His Mother! Woe to those who have no devotion to her.

Diese Frau rettet was ihr wichtig ist : eine Marienstatue ... ! Da müssen wir uns fremdschämen, denn nach dem Konzil gab es wie bei Luther, einen Bildersturm ! Wenn Kirchen renoviert werden, geschieht oft das gleiche. Wenn Kunst, dann sehr oft eine Afterkunst, weil viele Modernisten in dieser Hinsicht wie benebelt sind und so geschah es auch in unserer Gemeinde.

The bishops, fearing for the religious sisters, asked them to put on Chinese clothes and try to save themselves. Marie Hermine responded for all, “For the love of God, do not prevent us from dying with you. If our courage is weak, believe me that God who sends the test will give us the strength to meet it bravely. We fear neither death nor torments. We came here to exercise charity and to shed our blood for the love of Jesus Christ if need be.”

Novene zum hl. Benedikt
Man bete an neun aufeinanderfolgenden Tagen:
9 Vater unser, Gegrüßest seist du Maria, ehre sei dem Vater mit dem Zusatz:
Heiliger Vater Benedikt, bitte für uns, damit wir würdig werden, der Verheißungen Christi.
Lasset uns beten: Heiliger Vater Benedikt, du großer Helfer und Fürbitter, du Schrecken der bösen Geister, voll Vertrauen flehen wir zu dir in unserer Not. Lege unablässig Fürsprache ein für uns am göttlichen Throne und vertreibe die bösen Geister mit all ihren schädlichen Einflüssen. Segne uns, wie du einst mit großer Kraft gesegnet hast. Wir bauen auf deine machtvolle Hilfe und danken Gott für deine Heiligkeit und Größe, die dir so wunderbar Fürbittkraft, zukommen lässt.
Heiliger Abt Benedikt, Patron Europas, bleibe uns immer nahe, besonders in der Stunde unseres Todes. Amen

"including the provision of foodbanks and support for the homeless and vulnerable."
Churches should not become homeless shelters or soup kitchens simply to justify staying open to the secular government.
"Mass and other services should be streamed online without a congregation present."
That should be interesting for baptisms

Heute vor 36 Jahren verstarb der junge polnische Priester Popiełuszko.
Der polnische Priester Jerzy Popiełuszko kämpfte gegen den Kommunismus, um die Freiheit und für die Kirche. Am 19. Oktober 1984 stoppten Offiziere des kommunistischen Staatssicherheitsdienstes sein Auto, entführten ihn, schlugen ihn mit Fäusten und Holzknüppeln, banden Steine an seine Füße und ertränkten ihn im Weichsel-Stausee. Heute wird er als Seliger verehrt.
