Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures. Oddly enough, no one had a camera. Kinda sad, but what can you do. I did manage to scan a caricature of myself that one of the local artists drew for me:
I think it was pretty dope. Amy was really happy with it. I like how the artist emphasized certain features while still making it look like me. It's kinda funny too, haha.
Of course, everything happens while I'm away. In case you've been living in a cave, two important Church documents were released:
- Apostolic Letter Summorum Pontificum (On the Use of Preconciliar Liturgical Forms (or here)
- Responses to Some Questions Regarding Certain Aspects of the Doctrine on the Church
Someone please find me where it says that, especially in light of this paragraph:
“It follows that these separated churches and Communities, though we believe they suffer from defects, are deprived neither of significance nor importance in the mystery of salvation. In fact the Spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as instruments of salvation, whose value derives from that fullness of grace and of truth which has been entrusted to the Catholic Church”It appears that a lot of people are spouting off about what the CDF said without actually reading the document first. How about some intellectual honesty, people? Try reading a document before you make conclusions about it. And for crying out loud, never trust ignorant, biased media sources.
In the next few days I will be posting some of my dialgoues over at HCR about the CDF document. I also have some Q&A's in store for you. Stay tuned....
