Fr. Robert Barron: Marriage and the Room of Tears DA MIHI ANIMAS - June 29, 2015 ... Word on Fire team. Toward the end of our filming, the director of the Vatican Museums, who had accompanied us throughout the process, asked whether I wanted to see the "Room of Tears." This is the little antechamber, just off of the Sistina, where the newly-elected Pope repairs in order to change into his white cassock. Understandably, tears begin to flow in that room, once the poor man realizes the weight of his office. Inside the small space, there were documents and other ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/06/fr-robert-barron-marriage-and-room-of.html

St. Charles Lwanga and Companions. ABBEY ROADS - June 3, 2015 By Teresa Satola Gay Catholics want patron saints? You have them: Martyrs who died rather than commit mortal sin. As Fr. Z notes in his post, they were martyred by a sexually deviant King, a tribal Lord. Fr. Z calls him a ritual pedophile. I never considered it that way, and I think it is interesting in so far as we are reminded that the King and his pagan court believed in witchcraft - the ancient religion. Interestingly, Black ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/06/st-charles-lwanga-and-companions.html
