More news on the Anglicans and possible schism

Canadian House of Bishops - Message to the Church

Anglican leaders set to converge on N.O.; September gathering to tackle growing rift

The head of the worldwide Anglican church will meet with Episcopal bishops from across the country in New Orleans this fall, in an effort to keep the 77 million-member Anglican Communion from breaking apart over opposing views of homosexuality.


Opposed are conservative Anglicans in the Southern Hemisphere, especially Africa and Asia, who take a traditional Scriptural view of homosexuality.

American Episcopalians have the wealth, sending tens of millions of dollars to Anglican churches overseas. But conservatives have the numbers. Nigeria alone, headed by the outspoken conservative Archbishop Peter Akinola, has 17 million Anglicans -- seven times the United States membership.

Communion wine 'restricted' in NZ prisons

Dunne slams "political correctness gone mad"

We could say who cares this is being done in another country...but what the question of the moment.

United Future New Zealand leader Peter Dunne has labelled restrictions on Communion wine being taken into prisons - and therefore the celebration of Catholic Mass - "another appalling example of political correctness gone mad".

'Veil Tip' to Terry Nelson at Abbey-Roads2 for this one:

One in 30 babies aborted for medical reasons is born alive, a study has found.

They lived for an average of 80 minutes - although in some cases foetuses survived for over six hours.

Most of the babies were born between 20 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, but some had been in the womb for as little as 17 weeks.

No wonder the statues of Our Blessed Mother and Our LORD weep tears of blood!

Researchers looked at the outcome of 3,189 abortions performed on seriously handicapped foetuses at 20 hospitals between 1995 and 2004.

It showed that 102 - or around one in 30 - aborted for reasons such as Down's Syndrome and heart defects, were born alive.

Abortions are allowed to be carried out if the pregnancy is shown to have an adverse effect on the mental health and wellbeing of the mother up until the 24th week of pregnancy.

Beyond this point, the procedure is only sanctioned if the baby has a severe disability or if the mother's life is at risk.

Saint Joseph de Clairval Abbey

I have over the past 8 yrs. received their richly filled and spiritually enlightening newsletter. I have been fed information about church teaching, the lives of the saints, and words of spiritual encouragement. What blessings, I only wish that I could visit this beautiful abbey in France.

See their history. Their retreats are for men only, however I so appreciate all their newsletters and encourage you to visit their site and subscribe. They are most certainly blessed by their patron St. Joseph and even more so since they live by St. Benedict's Rule.

See their life in the Liturgy.

Photos of their grounds.
