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

Boston Archdiocese has its hands full again

Critic slams archdiocese land sale as betrayal - The Boston Globe

You don't see this often (thank goodness), but it does make you realize that there may be a lot more "spiritual combat" going on behind the scenes than we can know about. And before anyone starts in on the rector for this, I would first point out that there is nothing in this article that says HOW they acquired these letters. The fact that we have heard nothing of this until now tells me that the rector (while perhaps being overly harsh to his superior, which I cannot condone) did not set out to create a "stunt" - as might be inferred by the skeptical since he was scheduled to step down anyway this month. Rather, it seems he decided to make his opinions and reasons known by two private letters, and that is appropriate I think. Now that they are out though (and by who is a very good question), the Archdiocese has some serious defensive spin control to do...

The Boston College response sounds straight out of "Screwtape Letters". 30 pieces of silver indeed. Is the Boston Archdiocese really that desperate for money?
