From blog correspondent Dave McLaughlin
Return to Godwardness
'We need a return to the piety of our religion that acknowledges the supremacy of God, rather than insisting, as we have since the Second Vatican Council, on the supremacy of humankind in the church... The church is a divinely established institution, and God does not require our assistance to maintain, to change or alter that design.' — Bishop Thomas Doran (RC), Rockford, Illinois

He gets it. Of course, when it comes to worship, the churches that use the Byzantine Rite never forgot that.

'Don Balsam of Roscoe ...was encouraged in the 1960s by the Second Vatican Council, which allowed girl altar servers, Masses in English and a stronger lay voice.'

Did it now? That reporter didn't check facts. Sure, the thing was a mistake but it didn't do that.

Bible quotation from Dave:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. — II Paralipomenon VII:14
