Does that little picture of St. Benedict in the upper left corner remind anybody else of Fr. Benedict Groeschel??

The new papal chalet is quite modest, charming. Well deserved holy leisure, bon vacantie!

The smaller and more rustic cottage used by JPII is now a museum.


Today is also the Feast Day of St. Abundius, one of the Martyrs of Cordoba. Their story is a powerful rejoinder to the nonsensical but all too common claim that Moorish Spain was a land of peace and religious toleration.





Are you sure that picture of His Holiness wasn't taken when he learned that Bishop Fellay had been re-elected Superior General of the SSPX?

You forgot to remind everybody about "In This House of Brede" -- part of your Loyola Classics series, and featuring a Benedictine monastery of nuns...


I agree Margaret that picture does look like Father Benedict Groeschel!
