Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2


Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Church of England to reistitute heresy trials

Our Anglican friends over the pond report that they are going to begin holding clerical heresy trials once again, to try to reign in the clergy who preach that Mary was not a virgin and that Jesus did not really rise bodily from the dead. This measure seems to be lay-driven, in that it has come about thanks to a lay synod held yesterday, and while the lay synod does not have any real church authority, the understanding seems to be that the bishops are behind the decision. Trials are expected to begin by 2006.
