BBC screens dissident Mass

Action, please: complaints to the BBC. Do we pay the licence fee for them to spend all their time attacking the Church? You can listen to the BBC Radio 4 broadcast here.

From CFNews: The BBC is to broadcast a service from a San Francisco church which has been an 'inspiration' to 'homosexual and lesbian Catholics' around the world. The specially recorded prayer service from the Catholic Parish of the Most Holy Redeemer, in San Francisco's Castro district will go out on Sunday morning, 29 April, on BBC Radio 4. The parish claims to offer a 'spiritual home' to all, including 'those who are straight, gay and lesbian', and is based in the heart of San Francisco's heavily homosexual Castro neighbourhood. In the service to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Fr. Donal Godfrey SJ of the University of San Francisco will preside. James Alison, author of 'Is it ethical to be Catholic? - Queer perspectives', will be preaching. 'It is the style of ministry and liturgy at places such as MHR that influenced many of us familiar with these parishes, and so inspired us to develop the kind of parish-set ministry with LGBT Catholics that we now celebrate in Central London' said a statement from the Roman Catholic caucus of the lesbian and Gay Christian Movement in the UK. The service was recorded by the BBC in October, [Ekklesia]

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
