Chasing the swallows out of Capistrano
First Things’ Joseph Bottum on the auto-destruction of mainstream RC churches and hints of a restoration. Did you know the famous birds haven’t been back to the old Californian mission on St Joseph’s Day in nearly 20 years? Interesting metaphor. Of course the pro-life cause is true but it alone is not a substitute for the whole Catholic religion (nor are the emotion-fuelled sideshows of charismatism, Bayside and The Fatima Crusader, or the fan club of John Paul the Overrated), it doesn’t actually stop abortions and I won’t be played on that issue any more. (Fool me once, shame on you...)

Sounds like St Michael’s Abbey understands tolerant conservatism.
