I have long heard how Catholic bloggers are a bit Cataholic. That is to say certain blogs are quite sure to contain references to eucharistic monsters, Latin, Vatican 2, cats and what an error women's suffrage was.
OK I made that last one up. Please don't tell the Missus.
To ensure then I get a wider readership & enjoy the boon companionship of my blogging confreres (and er con-soeurs...) I am happy to include this picture.
It shows a medieval manuscript with the unmistakable addition of paw prints from an errant feline. The more times change eh?
And if you enjoyed this post tell your Cataholic friends about my humble blog. I can't promise a sense of fulfilment or regular cat posts, but I will purr contentedly when I see the visitor numbers increase. I would say I'd be like "the cat that got the cream" but I think we can all agree that would be a step too far and bordering on nauseating. I'll leave that to bishop conferences' statements on ecumenical dialogue.

This pic is from last week's copy of The Universe.
First we had collegiality & with it liberalness crept in, especially in "the West" where some Bishops were closet, ahem, pro-homosexuals.
Now we have some form of questionnaire. No doubt ignored by most, but taken up with gusto by pressure groups & vested interests.
Is our Faith up for debate? If so why isn't the Latin Mass mentioned? And why do I get the feeling this is all part of their Lordships slide into media-friendly heresy-embracing PR?
Do Catholics need to vote on "gay marriage" and what if 99% said they approve of sodomy and evil? Would that make it ok? Would that negate the Bible? The Magisterium? The Popes? The Saints?
I suppose I'm asking the question - is the Church a democracy? If it is do the Church suffering and triumphant have their say?
When we need clear leadership, clear dogma, clear teaching and clear morals, I'm sad to say this LOOKS like more 70s-style fudge and error.
I really hope I'm wrong and that their Lordships will defend our Faith and fight to save souls.

Years from now I think Mother Church will make Lefebvre a saint. Without him I think we would probably have lost the Latin Mass back in the 70s/80s, when in many dioceses the only choice one had was New Mass or SSPX.
Not all saints live peaceful, untroubled & uneventful lives. In fact few do. Many go against the perceived wisdom of the age. Some face approbation from the Bishops. Many suffer huge calumnies in His name.
There. I said it.

Why Facebook would choose to put this on the timeline of a Catholic is anyone's idea!
We get the mass media upset over Halloween costumes to do with lunatics and suchlike.
But not a peep over a homosexual club called Heaven. After all, who could that offend?
And what about a Catholic occasions like Halloween and All Saints' Day being the time for parties with themes such as Porn Idol or Blood & Whore? Who could get offended at that?
Oh. Catholics could.
Still causing offence to Catholics isn't a hate-crime. Is it, Mr Cameron? Hmmmm?

Yes. The darling of the "pro-choice" movement, the advocate of abortion and sterilisation, Margaret Sanger, was an out and out racist who not only wanted non-Whites curtailed, but the poor too.
Strange character for the advocates of mass murder to get into bed with.
Or maybe not. Ann Furedi, boss of abortion provider BPAS used to co-publish Living Marxism (her hubby was publisher/editor), a mag shut down for denying concentration camps and mass murder by Marxists in the Balkans.

If you haven't been - go. It is a place steeped in Catholic history.

Anyone with half an ounce of dignity should listen to last week's Moral Maze programme which went out on BBC radio 4.
You can still get it on the BBC iplayer & you can download the podcast.
The programme dealt with abortion, with two speakers in favour of mass murder and two against. All are professionals and experts.
What will poleaxe anyone with a grain of humanity is that one of the pro-"choice" lobby not only supported death up until birth in all cases (as did her compadre) but she openly supported infanticide.
Yep. You read that right.
This callous, uncaring, pro mass murder lowlife supported the killing of babies AFTER they are born, if that's what the "mother" wants (or no doubt if she's coerced to do so as with so many abortions, by a bullying control freak "father" of the child).
Listen to it. Tell your pro-life friends.
This exposes the "choice" lobby for the murderous cowards that they are. They would rather see a baby die than support, care & help (& even adoption) be offered to mums in distress.
That's the simple truth.

The latest "Culture War" is homosexual militants against Christian businesses.
It will happen here thanks to the numpty David Cameron.
Sorry for the long link - posting this from my phone.

In my last post I originally mistyped "Mystical Bidy". It's one of the joys of using a new-fangled smart phone thingy.
Anyway, Not sure who the Mystical Bidy is, but I dare say we all have our own contenders from the old ladies who attend Mass.
Personally I've known some really lovely, charming and holy old ladies over the years. Family members (of course) then various matriarchs, old spinsters and even one who helped run a church bookstall who went off to become a nun.
Then of course there's been the daughters of the 60s in various parishes who demand communion in both kinds and try to put various priests under so much pressure as to take over parish life.
So here's my opinion, for what it's worth. To be a true Mystical Bidy of Christ you have to love Our Lord in the Sacred Species and abide by Church teaching and traditions down the ages.
That goes for Old Geezers too... Which I am rapidly becoming.
Praise The Lord! (But not with a tambourine).
Very excited yesterday when I found this old stamp of our own Cardinal Saint John Fisher.
What a man amongst men. What a leader of the faithful. What a clear voice in an age of fudge and betrayal. What a Catholic Priest! Loyal to Christ the King and His Mystical Body.

Tuesday morning after a bank holiday. Huge queue of traffic into town as we all get stuck behind a tractor & trailer. Pop into bank & a huge queue of bods doing two days worth of banking.
Just as the steam starts coming out of my ears I put my hand in my pocket and feel my rosary.
A few prayers later & thinking of the tribulations of Our Lady and the suffering of Our Lord... And I am perfectly content and happy with my "first world problems."
