General Discussion (17)…

If there’s something of interest in the news that’s not covered in one of the topic threads, or you have a question to ask, a comment you’d like to make about anything under the sun, more or less, this is the thread for you.

However, please check first, to ensure that you haven’t missed a topic thread or another thread where it would be appropriate to post your comment, as the GD discussion threads fills up very quickly.

Readers, all too often, go straight to the General Discussion thread to post news that is already the topic of a thread or to ask a question that is already being discussed elsewhere. So, do your Sherlock Holmes – at the very least check the side-bar – before posting here, please and thank you! Your “news” may simply be a different angle on a subject already under discussion, so do, please check before posting your comment here. OR it would be helpful if you could check out the most recent thread on that subject, in case it is still open. In which case, your comment would be best placed there. 

Feel free, also, to share your favourite spiritual reading books, prayers and devotions on this thread. Whatever. Enjoy!

  1. I posted a video yesterday on the miraculous medal thread by Fr George Roth,whom I had not heard of previously.
    This afternoon by chance I heard a homily he gave six years ago, and was impressed by it.
    The talk is about 30 minutes long but worth the effort to listen to it.

    • RCA Victor,

      I don’t think they care about blackmail any more – Schoenborn is obviously “gay” or he wouldn’t be so openly flaunting the “lifestyle”. He has been doing so for years now and between that and promoting Medjugorje, it’s clear that he’s about as Catholic as a hamburger with all the trimmings on a Friday.

      I recall an occasion when he over-rode the parish priest’s decision not to allow an openly “gay” man, living in a registered partnership, to participate in the parish council or some such body. This was a few years back now, but there’s no shortage of evidence that Schoenborn is all but “out and proud”.

      If he’s not, then he should watch the company he keeps and not leave himself open to being misunderstood. Those of us who think that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it probably IS a duck, make no apology for saying we think he’s a … er… duck.

  2. Some good news….

    If you recall, some time ago, Therese asked for our prayers when she was undergoing tests and, ultimately, as she prepared to go into hospital for a major operation. I have today received the following email…

    Just to give you an update. I had a hysterectomy on 20 November, and have returned to hospital today to find out the results. I had a Stage 1 cancer which has not spread beyond half of the womb (going to undergo radiotherapy just in case, to blast any stray cancer cells that may be out there).

    When I consider that this was an aggressive cancer I have been tremendously blessed that I received a very early warning and thus very speedy treatment.

    There can be no doubt that God has given me a great gift for Christmas – an early warning to pull my socks up, stop messing about and concentrate hard on the health of my soul.

    I am tremendously grateful to Him, to His Blessed Mother, St Martin de Porres, St Therese of Lisieux, St Anthony and St Michael Archangel, whom I have inundated with prayers and novenas, and also my very, very grateful thanks to you, to Patricia and her family [Editor: my niece], and to the lovely family of Catholic Truth bloggers who have so generously offered prayers for my health. I will be asking for Holy Mass to be offered for your and their intentions.

    God bless, [Therese]

    I’m sure we are all delighted at this news… Deo gratias!
