In the paper this week

leave a comment »

In this week’s paper we report on the reaction to the horrific murder of Irish missionary Fr Jeremiah Roche.

Cardinal George Pell has fun at the expense of “Green extremists”. Pope Benedict says it’s useless to condemn and complain. The Birmingham Oratory experiences a shake-up. And Cardinal Bertone appeals for religious freedom in the Muslim world.

Fr Ernesto Cardenal, the Nicaraguan poet-priest, tells us that he’s still living dangerously. Anna Arco offers an update on the Visitation of American religious Sisters. And Russell Sparkes tells the story of the Catholic woman who was nearly named Poet Laureate.

Jill Segger asks us to be quiet. Mary Wakefield explains how to make an atheist’s top lip quiver. And Mary Kenny says true Christians should hang out with “losers”.

Alan Caine is awed by the V&A’s new galleries. Michael White marvels at “the new Glenn Gould”. And Jonathan Wright admires two women saints who broke all the rules.

Finally, Stuart Reid wonders if you say Mass, Marce, Morce – or possibly even Mawss.

Our pressing Christmas deadlines mean that these items will not be uploaded on our website until next Tuesday. So why not dash out to your nearest Catholic church (in Britain and Ireland) and pick up a copy? Or you may like to subscribe here.
