At First I Thought This Was A Joke…

...then I realized they were dead serious

Catholic University is being sued for "discriminating" against Muslims for being "...often surrounded by Catholic symbols which are incongruous to their religion..."

You know, because Muslims are so tolerant of Christians in the Islamic world.

Royal Wedding

For such an anti-monarchial country (the United States), there sure seems to be an inordinate amount of coverage of this wedding . . . now maybe we can move on to actual celebrity news, the beatification of the Lord's prime minister, Pope John Paul II.

New English Translation of the Roman Missal Almost Ready

An announcement was made today stating, "I welcome the news that the English translation of the Roman Missal will soon be ready for publication . . ." Implementation is widely believed to be planned for around end of year 2011. The announcement doesn't speak directly to this but it does lay the groundwork for all of the work still left to be done:
"A new task will then present itself, one which falls outside the direct competence of Vox Clara, but which in one way or another will involve all of you – the task of preparing for the reception of the new translation by clergy and lay faithful. Many will find it hard to adjust to unfamiliar texts after nearly forty years of continuous use of the previous translation. The change will need to be introduced with due sensitivity, and the opportunity for catechesis that it presents will need to be firmly grasped. I pray that in this way any risk of confusion or bewilderment will be averted, and the change will serve instead as a springboard for a renewal and a deepening of Eucharistic devotion all over the English-speaking world."
Amen. I'm very excited to hear this announcement and can't wait for its implementation!
