Tuesday Tidbits - Oct 7

*The Vatican will be dropping usage of the children's eucharistic prayers. I wonder if children's liturgy will be next?

*The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute is fighting a proposition in the United Nations to make abortion an international "right". You can sign a counter-petition on their website.

*The Northwest is awash with pro-life issues right now. In Washington they are fighting over an assisted-suicide initiative on the ballot. In Oregon, Archbishop Vlazny has taken on the governor over an abortion-rights fundraiser.

*There is a new database of all the saints in the roman martyrology, the Vatican's official list of saints and blessed. They claim to be the most complete database of saints on the internet. They also have a cool search feature. Tip o' the Hat to AP.

Ah, you know where I stand on that first tidibit... :-)

Call me old-fashioned, but I'm more of traditionalist...if it ain't broke, certainly don't attempt to fix it! And that attempt was a disgrace to the original liturgical texts. Bah humbug!
