Calling the errors of the West by name

"He calls the insufficiencies and errors of the West by name, criticizes that violence that attempts to find a religious justification," while also combating relativism and hedonism and promoting the relationship of faith and reason and between religion and the renouncement of violence," said the monsignor.(Gänswein)

Feast of the glorious Archangels

Thank you so much for all the help, all the protection.It's not possible to say thanks properly. It has been so much help and protection that I am not able to express all my gratitude.
Thanks be to God.

I'm missing them already

He's very pretty here

I like them so much. It has been a delight seeing all those pictures, videos, news and etc. Now they are gone and I miss them so much.
How can a person go back to normal life if all I want is to be close to them?! The more I see the Pope, the more I read his writings the more I like him. I always did since the time he was the amazing Cardinal Ratzinger. And how much more I like him know... - and all the boys around him, so well choosen, Cardinal Bertone, Msgr. Guido...And obviousely that "bel uomo".

A very good oportunity to see Msgr. Georg and some other dears from the Holy See.

The Pope's Secretary - II

I noticed that, with the Pope's visit to the UK, a lot of people reading my blog were searching the internet about the Pope's Secretary. So, for the fans, here they go some pictures - some with the help of the photographer Spaziani and some others I found on forums around the internet.

His extraordinary beauty does not concern only his face - and body - but his soul. I read everything I can about him and about what he says because he's very wise.

And what to say about the care he has with the Pope? If he hadn't all the other atributes, this one would be enough for liking him so much.

Our dear Pope is in very good hands.

One of the times I was in Castel Gandolfo last July, I saw him alive - yes ! - and I was amazed with his gentle smile and eyes, the way he walked...

And, as I read once in a blog comment, "he even wears cufflinks..."

I do like him. I know many women in the world can only see the amazing beauty of that man but what I see in him is more then that, it's not the same way I see the Pope but it's almost in the same way, a kind of respect and admiration together.
I think Our Lord likes him very much too.

The most famous Christian killed by the Nazis was Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Protestant pastor executed in April 1945 for plotting against Hitler.

What about the Count Claus Philipp Maria Justinian Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg ?
Or Father Kolbe ? Or Edith Stein?

For all the Masses said in the UK the Preface and the Canon will be said in Latin

Great Monsignor Guido!

Mgr Marini said: “For all the Masses said in the UK the Preface and the Canon will be said in Latin. What the Holy Father intends by using Latin is to emphasise the universality of the faith and the continuity of the Church.”

Once more, I found this at Overheard in the Sacristy .

What to do on 9/11: Instead of burning the Koran, tell the world about Muslim persecution of Christians

At http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamescorum/100053218/what-to-do-on-911-instead-of-burning-the-koran-tell-the-world-about-muslim-persecution-of-christians/

In many Islamic countries, Christian minorities – including the descendants of the earliest Christian communities in the Middle East – suffer under laws that make them second-class citizens. Not only do they have fewer legal rights, but the exercise of their faith is cruelly regulated by governments in the name of Sharia. In America, we criticise the plan to build a mosque near the 9/11 murder site even while agreeing that American law provides the clear right of Muslims to do such a thing. But in many Muslim nations no Christian can build or even repair a church without approval (usually not forthcoming) from a hostile government ministry.

Much worse, murder, kidnappings, forced conversions and attacks against Christians by radical Muslims are common in the Islamic world, especially in the Middle East and in Pakistan. Every year, hundreds of Christians are murdered by religious fanatics. Even when a Muslim government disapproves of such violence, officials and police often stand aside and allow the attacks rather than confront a politically powerful radical Islam.

The shadow

Overheard in the Sacristy posted one of the best pictures of the Pope and Msgr. Georg Gänswein ever.
Please, go there to see by yourselves.
My comment there:"This picture means so much. Monsignor Georg in the shadow. Always by the Pope’s side. Even when we can not see him, his hand is there."
It should receive a prize.
Go here.

We were there !

I resisted posting this pictures and others I will post one of this days about our visit to the Pope in July. I wanted to show it to the world but, at same time, it was so much intense that looked like I couldn't turn it public.
But there it is: our Pope and Monsignor Georg.
Almost heaven.
Total hapiness.

PS: it was on 25 of July, at the Angelus.

The shadow

The shadow
Even when we can not see him, his hand is always there!
