Society of St. Pius X Has Meeting at the Vatican: Presented Statement of Principles (2874)

The document outlines points of doctrine that the Vatican needs clarified before finally healing the decades-long rift between the two sides.

09/14/2011 Comment

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—The breakaway traditionalist group the Society of St. Pius X, could be offered the status of a personal prelature within the Catholic Church if it agrees to some core Church teachings outlined at a Sept. 14 meeting in Rome.

During the two-hour meeting, the superior general of the society, Bishop Bernard Fellay, was presented with a statement of principles or “doctrinal preamble” by the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal William Leveda.

The document outlines points of doctrine that the Vatican needs clarified before finally healing the decades-long rift between the two sides. One Vatican insider told CNA that the overall offer...READ MORE

The game of quidditch from the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling is depicted as an exciting sport to watch and to play. Played while riding on magic brooms, it is fast-paced, requires speed and coordination, and relies on teamwork and individual creativity. It is depicted as a tough sport, not for the fainthearted.

And, as we all know, it is a fictional sport. In the end, quidditch, like Harry Potter, is not real. It is simply the product of an active and creative imagination.

We know it is a fantasy because we all intuitively understand the basic principles of our universe. Even for the more imaginative of us, it is obvious brooms cannot defy gravity, no matter what make or model....READ MORE

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI said Sept. 14 that Christians should continue to call upon God even in times of trial, when he may seem distant.

“The shadow of the cross gives way to the bright hope of the Resurrection,” the Pope told pilgrims gathered in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall for his weekly audience.

“We too, when we call upon him in times of trial, must place our trust in the God who brings salvation, who conquers death with the gift of eternal life.”

The Pope drew his observations from Psalm 22, which he described as “a heartfelt prayer of lamentation from one who feels abandoned by God.”

The writer of the Psalm is “surrounded by enemies who are persecuting...READ MORE

NEW YORK — A new series of discussions taking place on the streets of New York City is shining a light on authentic love and relationships — and cultivating a following that is spreading to other parts of the country.
