'Popetown' plagues Lithuania

Background briefing: a vigorous campaign by Catholics against the BBC's 'Popetown' cartoon series, which ridicules the Holy Father, resulted in the series not being screened in the UK. It was still available for export, however, and now the Catholic Bishops of Lithuania are taking legal steps against it. We wish them luck. If the BBC judged it too insulting the Church for viewing here, why are they selling it abroad?

For the story, see here.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
