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

"Lord of the Thing"

Now I've seen it all... Clayton has outdone himself this time.

"Cardinal Mahoney" stars in Doxaweb's latest installment, the "Lord of the Thing" (otherwise known as "Mordor in the Cathedral")

The cast of characters:
* Roger Mahony as Frodo Cardinal Baggins
* Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger as Strider/Benedict Aragorn
* Karol Wojtyla as Gandalf the Great
* the archbishop of San Francisco as Samwise Levada
* Teresa of Calcutta as Arwen
* a member of the Los Angeles Rainbow Sash movement as Smeagol the Sasher
* the pastoral associates of the Archdiocese as Sauron's army
* and a cameo by Fr. Richard McBrien as himself

To see the hideousness of LA's Our Lady of the "Angles" Cathedral, click here (I will never understand how they can be so proud of something so ugly... is it just a case of peer pressure, where everyone just thinks that everyone else likes it and so they should too? Honestly, can anyone truly LIKE that thing?)

Our Lady of the Angels, pray for us!
