At last William Oddie has given expression to what many of us feel now about Benedict XVI

See his post at the Catholic Herald site, if you have not yet had the courage to say it.. Thank you Dr Oddie for your honesty. At least I now feel I am not alone in my inconsolable grief .

Front Page re-design

I'm waiting for a friend who has promised to help re-design the front page of the Oasis. I hope it will be done in the coming week. Thanks for your patience.

Update on Mons. Marini

There is absolutely NO reliably sourced news on Mons. Mainni and while I understand your concern for him, it is best to say nothing at the moment. Monsignor is wise to remain quiet and obedient in his present circumstance. Please keep praying for him.

Monsignor Guido Marini: March 16 2013

I have just checked my stats and they are showing that  posts featuring Mons. Guido Marini are proving the most widely viewed on the Oasis and have been, er well, since doubt has been cast on his continued role as Maestro of Papal Liturgy.

I understand from this that many of you share my concern about his future and are praying for him. He is in great need of spiritual support. Thank you for your prayers. Please keep them up.

When I can get my act together, I hope to publish a proper tribute to him here.

Sede Vacante

I have prayed and thought deeply about future of this blog                   and have finally come to the conclusion that I should not close it.
This had been my intention, at least until 8pm on Thursday evening when the Swiss Guard shut the gate at Castel Gandolfo and the  Vatican Gendarmerie took on the responsibility for the security of our beloved former Pope.

I cannot pinpoint the moment when I decided to continue.Suffice to say that I will continue it with changes to the front page as soon as they can be arranged. My apologies for the lateness of this post but my disablement caused by recent stroke is so far unimproved. I pray daily for a restoration of former capabilities. In the meantime I intend to post here once a week

With my prayers for all of you
Until the next time,
God bless all here,
