Vatican Assaults Prodi, Again

"Whatever the trigger was, the Catholic Church is becoming increasingly active in politics."

Is there fear?

"Soon the Vatican’s efforts will not be limited to a pro-family agenda. Watch for its political pressure to be applied to other areas. Soon it will attempt to impose its beliefs in areas such as Sunday worship on the whole European continent. The pope has demonstrated his political clout in Italy. Watch for it to extend across Europe, and then, the whole world."

Polling station at Mass. Catholic church won’t cover crucifix

Religious symbols OK at polling site
Good one:

"A TELEGRAM & GAZETTE reader, RESPONDING TO THE ARGUMENT OF COVERING RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS AT A CHURCH BEING USED AS A POLLING PLACE "This argument is absurd. … If the polling place was an aquarium, one would expect to see fish. If the polling place was an aviary, one would expect to see birds. If a church is the polling place, one should expect to see religious items. Get over it!"

Sandro Magister:The Roman Curia Wakes Up and Strikes Three Blows

Huge points:

    1. "Asking for perpetual Eucharistic adoration be established, with the aim of "sanctifying" priests through prayer." "We ask all to do Eucharistic adoration in order to make reparation before God for the grave injury that has been done, and to recover the dignity of the victims. Yes, we wanted to think of the victims, so that they might feel that we are near. They are uppermost in our thoughts; it is important to say this."
    2. On miracles: "Caution and accuracy: these are the criteria that the pope and the congregation want to see more closely observed."
    3. "As for the celebrant "turning his back to the faithful": "In the circumstances in which the celebration takes place in this manner, this is not so much a question of turning one's back to the faithful, but rather of orienting oneself toward the Lord, together with the faithful. From this point of view, instead of being closed the door is opened for the faithful, to lead them to the Lord. In the Eucharistic liturgy, the participants do not look at one another; they look to the One who is our East, the Savior."
    4. On the "Summorum Pontificum":"The Church's liturgy, like all of its life, is characterized by continuity: I would speak of development in continuity. This means that the Church proceeds on its journey through history without losing sight of its own roots and its own living tradition: this can even require, in some cases, the recovery of valuable and important elements that have been lost and forgotten along the way, and the authentic meaning of which has been dimmed by the passage of time. It seems to me that the motu proprio moves in precisely this direction, reaffirming very clearly that in the Church's liturgical life there is continuity, without rupture. One must not speak, therefore, of a return to the past, but of a true enrichment for the present, in view of tomorrow."

Thank you Holy Father!
Deo Gratias!!
