Midweek links

We wanted to alert you to one of the best sermons we've ever heard from H.E. Bishop Daniel Dolan, delivered this last weekend.  Well worth a listen.

Fr. Cekada has a newer take (updated for Bergoglio) on his famous Grain of Incense article available here.

For those of you who don't have ready access to a chapel during the upcoming ceremonies of next week, participate via SGGResources.org Lily memorial.

Novus Ordo Watch has recently translated two writings of Leo XIII into English.  Quotes from the text include such gems like:

"To the shepherds alone was given all power to teach, to judge, to direct; on the faithful was imposed the duty of following their teaching, of submitting with docility to their judgment, and of allowing themselves to be governed, corrected, and guided by them in the way of salvation. Thus, it is an absolute necessity for the simple faithful to submit in mind and heart to their own pastors, and for the latter to submit with them to the Head and Supreme Pastor." (Epistola Tua)

Don't expect the R&R crowd, who start with a conclusion (we HAVE to have a Pope all the time!) and then make the facts fit their conclusion, to be excited about such texts, but send them on to those friends of good will anyway :-)
