From blogforlovers
The roots of Pentecostal scandals: romanticism gone to seed
The sexual stumblings of prominent ministers point to a hidden flaw in Pentecostal spirituality
Or a natural consequence of Protestant individualism gone too far?

New monasteries and convents in France (and a new one in an old site, Liseux)
I like them! Recollected, Godward and lively.

Acceptable modern stuff
One link is from Ship of Fools, another from a discussion/argument I had yesterday on a mainstream RC board I pop into now and then.

Note the modern-art priest is facing the right direction, and in a church with a decent mediæval Italian-looking reredos too. Very 'legit liturgical-movement'.

Note the sanctuary in the second pic even has a cushion for kneeling Communion. I understand the incumbent there is responsible for the nice appointments, bringing the place up the candle.

All these (including the monastic communities?) need is the 1965 missal as the default...
