Observations about the newly named Cardinals. Fr Z briefly rants.

You know what an atomizer is, right?  Think of those bottles of perfume with little squeeze bulbs that send out poofs. To atomize means to break down into discreet parts, to separate something into tiny bits. That’s what is happening … Continue reading

“LaCI and Beans” back at it again! Attack US Bishops for their enthusiastic implementation of law

Go to radical-liberal, anti-tradition La Croix International, (LaCI) run by a cadre around openly-“gay” (and HERE) Robert Mickens.  Mickens, you will recall, is so filled with animus for John Paul II and Benedict XVI that he lost his place with the … Continue reading
