Salford diocese gives platform to dissident

Local action as appropriate.

From CFNews: The Salford Diocesan website is advertising an April 5th meeting at which Julian Filowchowski will be the guest speaker at a public meeting of the Archbishop Romero Anniversary Justice and Peace Celebration organised by the Faith and Justice group.

Background alert : In Opening Up, edited by Filochowski and Peter Stanford -- published to mark the 60th birthday of Filowchowski's 'partner' Martin Pendergast -- there were a number of articles dissenting from the teaching of the magisterium, particularly on the question of homosexuality. In June 2006, at a 'liturgy' in London to celebrate the registration of their civil partnership, the following reflection was delivered by Father McDonagh. The occasion was 'a prophetic one, at least a partial realization of a dream, leading us further along the road to being honourably Catholic . . . in their being so honourably gay they have enabled us to be a little more honourably Catholic.'

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
