From blog visitor Mike Russell
Photo proof: Hindu ritual at Fátima shrine
Follow-up to Lee Penn's entries a while back

Lord, in Thy mercy: hear our prayer.

As I said when this news first broke, Hindus are wonderful people but this doesn't belong in a consecrated Catholic church.

Natural theology: the Lord loves the one who loves the Lord

But does anybody else notice the supreme irony that the Radha Krishna Temple, like the one in London built for the Hare Krishnas (technically not Hindus but a Westernized redaction of that faith) by George Harrison, is much, much nicer than the poky, protty little chapel at Fátima? Natural religion including this example from India has more in common with the historic Catholic mainstream blessed by revelation than it does modernity.

Iconoclasm and the 'Reformation' redux

What? ... em Portugal?! Sim, Senhor.
