Four Nuns, including Sister Mary Bernard, volunteered to accompany ...http://stpatricksconventschool.blogspot.com/2013/02/mother-bernard-kirwans-anniversary.html
Vatileaks: Pope to Ask Commission of Cardinals to Tell Conclave Members the Truth CLERICAL WHISPERS - February 24, 2013 ... already done was enough. This comment reveals the Pope's dwindling strength and vigour which he later mentioned when he announced his resignation on 11 February. According to the German journalist and writer, "the case did not perturb the Pope nor did it lead him to feel the weight of his ministry, even though he did find the whole affair incomprehensible. For the Pope, it was important, however, that the case be resolved through an independent justice system in the Vatican, without the ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2013/02/vatileaks-pope-to-ask-commission-of.html
Catherine of Siena: Fearless and Fiery... ABBEY-ROADS - February 19, 2013 But not a Savonarola. Catherine wrote a lot of letters, but they were private - not for public consumption. Raymond of Capua wrote her biography. He was also her spiritual director and knew her soul. She never acted on her own. She never had a bonfire of the vanities. She never was able to ascend a pulpit to condemn or deride the evils of the day. She didn't walk about Siena or Avignon, or even Rome, trying to make a name for herself. She wrote letters. She met with ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2013/02/catherine-of-siena-fearless-and-fiery.html

This Changes Everything! A FRIAR'S LIFE - February 10, 2013 HOMILY FOR THE FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME, February 10, 2013: . I'm currently reading a biography of John Quincy Adams and that got me thinking of one of the major accomplishments in his remarkable career – one that was immortalized in the great Speilberg movie, Amistad which tells the story of a group of slaves who were able to win their freedom with Adams help in the Supreme Court long before slavery was abolished in this country. There is one poignant scene in ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2013/02/this-changes-everything.html
St Alban, England's First Martyr BRIDGES AND TANGENTS - February 5, 2013 On Friday the seminary went on pilgrimage to St Albans to visit the shrine of the great saint, England's first martyr. Just getting out of London was a revelation for some of the seminarians; and many of them couldn't quite believe that we were still in Westminster Diocese (which takes in the whole of Hertfordshire as well as its London elements). I was born in London but grew up in Harpenden, and went to senior school in St Albans; so I felt very proud to ...http://bridgesandtangents.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/st-alban-englands-first-martyr/
