Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


Bits and pieces (and the magic from my hands)

December 26th, 2010, Promulgated by Ink

Merry Christmas, everyone!  In the past few days, I have run into good things and bad things.  None of these are quite enough to make their own post, so I’m putting them all into one here.


“Lessons and Carols” at Aquinas on the 23rd had a line (which was repeated at least once) about “some peoples’ belief in Santa is like other peoples’ belief in God.”  I think they tossed in there “except it’s better to believe in God because He’s real” but even with the addition, my eyebrows have risen quite a bit.  Watering down belief in God in this manner is part of the reason so few people believe in the True Presence!


At the end of midnight Mass at Mother of Sorrows, Fr. Bradshaw made an announcement to the whole church that with the new liturgical translations, Mother of Sorrows as a parish will be focusing more upon the beauty and majesty of the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.  Finally!

A blessed Christmas season to all!  Have fun with your families. ^_^

    And he is retiring next year!

    Clarification–from what I understand, he has another year, probably leave June of ’12

  4. With six months to go before retirements/transfers, I wonder how many priests are retiring in 2011?
