Pope Urges More Muslims to Fight Terror

Excellent. Hopefully more world leaders will do this also, and Muslims will follow through.
Church plan draws parents’ ire

The parish wants to rent space for 12 disabled adults for one year. Some parents claim they were not told of this plan, but it is clear in the article that there were two meetings and an announcement in the parish bulletin.
I received a giant catalog from Eighth Day Books. What a collection they have!
I just updated my Catholic Blog Directory after some time of neglect. I apologize to all who emailed requests to be added. My wish is for this process to be automated. There are several lists of Catholic Blogs out there, all with some good qualities. St. Blog's needs to get together and create a master list that is totally up to date and can be updated by many people. Check out some of the Catholic Blogs from outside the USA:

Brother Roger, RIP

BROTHER Roger, one of the 20th century's leading ecumenical figures, was stabbed to death by a woman during a service at the Taize community he founded in eastern France, local police said.
"In an extraordinary display of mercy, a Long Island woman nearly killed by a turkey tossed at her windshield embraced and comforted the teen prankster behind the sick stunt."

I wish I had this capacity to forgive.
Nun upstages star Hanks
I have a relative who is dying of cancer. A nun, a priest, and local parishioners bring him Holy Communion. Local Knights of Columbus have been doing chores, bringing food and visiting almost daily. Other people are pitching in to assist the spouse.

Meanwhile, Msgr. Eugene Clark is checking in and out of a hotel with his Daisy-Dukes wearing secretary. He owns a house in the Hamptons. Think about how many Catholics are dying right now in the Archdiocese of New York - how many could Clark have been visiting if he were not busy traveling to St. Bart's and the Hamptons with his secretary? How many elderly and naive Catholics have donated money to St. Patrick's Cathedral thinking it actually would go towards something worthwhile??
