    I think that (really creepy) stuff is due to more than just the Novus Ordo like seminaries not being run properly.
    Absolutely. What is going on in some seminaries would make your head spin. There is some really bad priestly formation going on out there.

    I'm sure it's been getting better in the last few years.

    Sorry to be depressing, just strange it sounds like he was a seriously die-hard right wing Catholic.

    Wow. I pray for the repose of his soul. I can only hope that he was psychologically lost and that at the point of losing his mind he was free from sin. A good traditional Catholic like him would know that suicide is a mortal sin.... and to do it in a Church is shocking. That Church will have to go through reconsecration I believe (may be wrong, may only be when an enemy of the faith kills someone in a Church). May his soul rest in peace and may the light of God shine upon him for all eternity. Poor, poor man. Kyrie Eleison.

    Well, actually, no. Take a look at this presentation. In the introduction this priest tells us how he is having to cover some pretty basic theological principles with other priests as it relates to Mass.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR7xM...eature=related

    Let's be under no delusion. There are catholic priests out there - a lot of them - who do not properly understand what it is they are doing at Mass. Saying Mass is central to what they do as priests and yet they don't understand it because they havn't been instructed at seminary.

    Well, actually, yes. Many seminaries are changing drastically. Slowly things are happening. Just the other day I met a young Diocesan ordained in Birmingham. Looking at the Diocesan priests (and Religious) over 50 years old I usually don't trust 'em and to my shame I am always suspicious of them. This Priest was close as it gets to being a traditionalist. He was in love with the old Mass, he knew his Latin, hated modernists, and best of all he said that all his fellow seminarians feel the same way. I've since been to one of his Masses (Novus Ordo in Latin, ad orientem, etc) and it's one of the best ones I have been to (still don't like going but that's being a traddy for you). I've met a few other seminarians and young Priests. Things are changing. To be sure, in certain dioceses there are still modernist seminaries. In certain seminaries they still have modernist priests because usually they've got friends in high places to keep them there, but things are slowly changing thanks be to God. Even the older priests are finding tradition again. It would be almost unthinkable to attend a new Mass 10+ years ago (for me anyway). But now I go when I have to, and although I still struggle it's still okay. The young generation of priests are coming through and (in England anyway) a good chunk are solid and traditional. It will take years, probably a a century, before the Latin Church gets rid of the crap. The modernism was a hurricane. It'll take time to change, but thanks be to God things are changing. God does not abandon His Church. Peter is still steering!

    Thanks, that's a good video We've talked here before about how Catholic schools don't really teach children about Catholicism, which annoyingly is the whole point.

    I don't care if they're a bit modernist or traditionalist, just as long as they're orthodox and they say the mass reverently.

    I'm not always given a penance - I wouldn't worry too much about the fact that you weren't given one.

    That's awful about your grandma :eek: Thank goodness she is mostly OK though. Must have been a fright for your family :hugs:

    Yeah, I think he told me to go to adoration but that's a bit awkward, never mind. What is strange is that normally I don't get any advice but the last two times I've been, I have.

    I know her face was very swollen but she's okay:bigsmile: Aye.

    Must go and revise

    Yesterday whilst in France I noticed that it was the feast of St Augustine, who brought Christianity to England. Bit surprised that his feast was celebrated in France.

    How is everyone? I can't remember if I told you guys how my confirmation service went! It was a beautiful service and I managed not to fall over in front of the bishop when walking up to be someone's sponsor. All in all it was a great evening :jebus:

    :awesome:

    Glad you managed not to fall over.

    Oops, this reminds me, I really need to plan my next (and the final ever...) session.
    Then our confirmations are 15th and 16th June.

    My 15th is going to be incredibly busy. I'm busy with Spirit in the City stuff from Wednesday - Friday evening, then I've got a friend being ordained a deacon in the morning, Allen Hall for the reception, and then running back home for confirmation Mass in the afternoon. Whew...
