"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

A Good Friend Ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests in Italy

A good friend of several readers of this blog, Francesco Giordano, has just been ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests in Christ's Holy, Catholic Church by the Roman Catholic bishop of the Diocese of Albenga-Imperia in Italy. May God grant Father Giordano many years of fruitful ministry!
Congratulations, Don Francesco!

How come our altars don't stand against the wall like this one!
Isn't that more traditional, to have the Prist/Bishop facing the same direction to praise God?

I don't think it matters. The Roman Catholic church is in trouble.
Aparently the Pope gets his orders from the Jews now.
Pope Benedixt the XVI in-communicated a few schism Bishops who were a bit too traditional in their practice for the mainstreem Vatican II.
However, one of these Bishops spoke candidly about his personal beliefs on the Holicaust and how he feels based on some scientific findings that the Holicause story is a bit hyped with propaganda. He states that he doesn't believe there were gas chambors at all.

Well almost immediately the Vatican began getting outcries to excommunicate once again this one Bishop on his personal beliefs. Just the other day Pope Benedict the XVI issued an immediate request for this Bishop to recant!

I ask you? How can the Pope issue a request for a Bishop to recant his personal held beliefs when it has nothing to do whatsoever with the Church nor its Doctrine.

Aparently the threats of lawsuits over "Holocaust denial" (though I don't think that is what this particular Bishop was suggesting) is enough to make a Pope cower!

How dreadfully shameful. But then again, I see this same kind of attitude with our own Anglican communion. At times it seems the ArchBishop of Cantebury is almost the lapdog for the Muslims. Can't we just have a Pope of Bishop who puts Christian agendas and concerns first?
