The Speculum Iustitiae conference continues today. You will recognize the title as being that given to Mary in her beautiful litany.
It is encouraging that beautiful churches can be built still today in beautiful places.
As Mass closed yesterday, Cardinal Burke on his way out. I had been in the confessional during Mass since I generally eschew concelebration.
This morning, having read even more about the murder of the priest in France, I spent some time with St. Miguel Pro, to whom we ought perhaps to turn in these troubling times.
His altar and relic.
Today our talks are by Msgr. Jason Gray on “The Promoter of the Faith in Causes of Canonization: Its History and Implications for the Defender of the Bond” and by Dr. William Daniel: “Analysis of the 2015 Reform of the Marriage Nullity Process”. Later Card. Burke will speak about “The Defender of the Bond as a Distinct and Necessary Office in the Matrimonial Process”.
Indeed, I hear one canonist here suggest that there should be formed some kind of association of Defenders of the Bond, in the wake of Mitis index.
