Around the blogs today

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Dec 09, 2003

Here's what's new and interesting on Catholic blogs today:

  • Mark Shea notes that Mary Magdalene has become this year's poster girl for everyone undermining the Church's Christology.
  • Peter Vere finds a role model for a certain kind of Catholic politician in Pontius Pilate.
  • Fr. Bryce Sibley points to an article that extols virtuous hate, a healthy hatred of evil.
  • Jeff Miller discusses Archbishop-elect Raymond Burke's now well-known letter to dissenting Catholic politicians and the idea that pluralism supersedes a politician's duty to his professed faith or a bishop's duty to call him on it.
  • Fr. Rob Johansen writes that the "right to die" movement has been transformed into the "duty to die" movement.
  • Readers at Amy Welborn's blog are having an intense discussion about the Dutch parish Diogenes mentioned here last week which has no priest, but a "pastoress". There are several other blog entries that continue the theme and give Amy's thoughts.
  • Father Tom Dowd alerts us to a movement in Quebec that has declared the Eucharist a "failure" and wants to replace the Mass with an "agape meal." And they have some big name supporters including the Cardinal-archbishop of Montreal.
