On the Feast Day of St. Therese: Congratulations to two favourite bloggers

As you know, I like to accentuate the positive wherever and whenever I can. You probably need cheering up if you have the misfortune to read the secular UK press. These two posts should do the trick. I beg you to look at both.

First is Annie at the LMS Arundel and Brighton site. She writes incisively and with brilliant logic about the idiocy of people who have been critical of the Catholic response to the visit of St. Therese's relics to the UK. I'll say no more. Just go there and enjoy. I've commented to her that she should send the post as a letter to the editors of our so-called 'quality' British newspapers and see whether any of them will have the guts or honesty to publish it.

Second is Chris Gillibrand at 'Catholic Church Conservation'. He has posted a video: 'At the name of Jesus'. All I'll say is, it's a sermon by a priest about the Blessed Sacrament. Again, go there and enjoy!

God bless you Annie and Chris. The Holy Father would be proud of you if he knew about your posts. Come to think of it, it's more likely now that he may know, than say nine months ago.

Both blogs are in the sidebar bloglist here.

And of course on St. Therese's day, we thank God that Birmingham will have Bernard Longley as Archbishop and that his inauguration will be on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception this year. Deo gratias.
