…the only way to describe the canonisation of St John Henry Newman in Rome this past weekend….
Despite all the madness in Rome at the moment, there is cause for hope. The evil men will not win and even as they are openly revelling in their victory, good Cardinals are gathering and supporting the flock. This is very heartening, please watch!
Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day but the entire month of October is devoted to Infant Loss Remembrance. James and I feel very blessed and grateful to be the parents of five young adult sons (ages 20-32) and one beautiful grandson. We are also blessed to be the parents of seven precious babies we lost through miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. This month, we remember in a special way these seven little souls (and intercessors) in heaven.
“I have not yet baptized any Indian and I will not” – Bishop Erwin Kräutler.
German theologian, Johannes Stöhr critiques +Kräutler’s book “Have courage! Now change the world and the Church”, says +Kräutler plays the Eucharist against sacramentality#SinodoAmazonico #AmazonSynod https://t.co/hTfZvI0jG3— Catholic Sat (@CatholicSat) October 14, 2019So the bishop at the Amazon Synod who is there to teach us all about evangelising the people rejects the great commission and the fundamental purpose of his whole mission.

Pope Francis presents a cake to ally Cardinal BecciuThe Vatican is investigating how $200m in Swiss bank accounts controlled by its central administrator ended up financing a luxury property development in London that generated large profits for a company that managed the investment. According to an article in the highly reputable Financial Times, in addition to forking out £168 million for the equity, the Vatican has also taken over £100 million of debt.
The project to construct 49 luxury apartments at 60 Sloane Avenue has become the focus of an investigation by Vatican police into the financial activities of the Holy See’s Secretariat of State, the custodian of millions of dollars in charity given by Catholics around the world, according to multiple people familiar with the probe.
The Vatican became involved in the Chelsea project in 2014 when $200m held in Swiss bank accounts controlled by the Secretariat of State was transferred to a Luxembourg investment fund called Athena Capital.
