Where Are Their Habits?

Also, the abuses that formed in the wake of Vatican II are not some unique anomaly in the history of the church and were certainly not caused by the council itself. The 5th Lateran Council (1512-1513), for instance, reflected concern for abuses in the Church and the need for reforms but failed to take decisive action in the years immediately preceding the Reformation.

The T-Mobile Royal Wedding

You know that awkward feeling where you don't know whether or not to cry or laugh? That's what we have here. Although, I couldn't help but laugh histerically at the bishop dancing at the altar. I still feel horribly wrong about doing so though.
