The Puppy Whisperer

With his daring scheme for Anglicans, Benedict XVI fulfils the hopes of Cardinal Newman

The Telegraph reports:
Was Pope Benedict XVI inspired by Cardinal John Henry Newman, whom it is hoped he will beatify in England next year, when he suddenly threw open the gates of Rome to disaffected Anglicans on Tuesday morning?
The official website for Newman’s Cause hinted as much when it greeted the announcement with a reminder of Newman’s support for a proposal to establish an Anglican Uniate Church for converts, similar to that provided for Byzantine-rite Catholics. The plan was conceived by Ambrose Phillips de Lisle and Newman rightly guessed that it would be unworkable. But if it could be made to work, he said, he was all in favour. As he wrote to de Lisle in 1876:
“Nothing will rejoice me more than to find that the Holy See considers it safe and promising to sanction some such plan as the Pamphlet suggests. I give my best prayers, such as they are, that some means of drawing to us so many good people, who are now shivering at our gates, may be discovered.”

Assisted Suicide

Lord Joffe, who has campaigned strenuously for the legalisation of assisted suicide, is giving a public lecture at Bath University to promote his views. The University wishes the public to have their say in a poll on their website. It is a good, straightforward question "Should assisted dying be legalised for the terminally ill?" Currently there is a massive majority of "No" votes - go over to help keep it that way.Cast your vote here.

An Abortionist turns to the Divine Mercy

Patric Madrid - - reports on a former medical doctor who was involved in contraception for women turned back to his Catholic faith - He used to perform abortions. Then he returned to his Catholic faith. Now, Dr. John Bruchalski's mission is to help spread the message of Divine Mercy through his medical practice.

And also

Personally we have experienced my father on a ward and left without food and fluids. An operation where someone was sent home early and only after three phone calls able to get a doctor out and readmitted to a hospital where there where no beds and had to be transported to another hospital at 4 am in the morning before treatment. And a maternity ward with no midwives taking an 'active' role in the birth of a baby without pestering for attention.

Currently I have been volunteering at a Centre Of Peace bookshop, originally coming out of the Medjugorje movement. As well as books we sell a wide range of Catholic items. Being at the shop has meant I have been finding out more about Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions around the world. As well as Marian apologetics.

The following article on Bl. Bartolomeo Longo and the Rosary was written by Br. Ezra Sullivan, OP. It originally appeared on the Catholic Exchange website on October 26, 2007, in the month dedicated to our Lady of the Rosary.

On the day of Bartolo Longo’s beatification, October 26, 1980, Pope John Paul II called him a “man of the Madonna”; he later called him “a true apostle of the rosary” and “a layman who lived his ecclesial pledge to the full”. And John Paul II knew what he was saying — his own Marian spirituality was influenced deeply by what, as a young man, he had gleaned from Bartolo’s life and works.
So who was this a man who so profoundly affected the great…

Sexualising our children

The schools and government are concerned about the craze for runner bands which can be exchanged in the school playground - for 'favours' by the girls. They are obviously concerned about sexualising of our children - what about the education system itself which has been sexualising our children at younger and younger ages. They should look on their own doorsteps first at some of the policies that they ahve out in place.

Culture Watch says: Governments Sexualising Our Children
We can understand the sex industry and porn lobby attempting to target our kids and push their sleazy agenda on them. But when the government gets into this business, using our tax dollars to do so, then we must be especially concerned.
Primary school kids are being targeted by a website developed by La Trobe University. The site,, uses cartoons to tell 10 to 12-year-olds about how they can get “interested in sex”. It also informs them what a relief it can be if a woman has an …
