'Catholic Omnibus' no longer to be printed

Another victory for faithful Catholics! As we reported not long ago, Catholic Omnibus (the word 'Catholic' is printed in very small letters, of course), the official publication of the National Board of Catholic Women, is the mouthpiece of a clique of feminists, mainly from the group 'Women Word Spirit' (CWN) (see our dossier) which has been banned from the national Catholic Directory for its support of women's ordination and abortion. This clique has a vice-like grip on the National Board of Catholic Women, which is an official agency of the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. The orthodox Association of Catholic Women resigned from the NBCW in protest a year or so ago, showing how, unfortunately, those who shout loudest, and are most intolerant, usually prevail when those in authority refuse to exercise it.

Clearly things are changing, so make sure your local bishop is not continuing to endorse the WWS in his diocesan directory.

Briefing: It would appear that one of the first casualties of the recession is Catholic OMNIBUS, the quarterly newspaper of the National Board of Catholic Women. The paper, which is edited by known members and supporters of extreme feminist groups like Catholic Women's Network/Women Word Spirit, has mainly reflected the dissenting and politically-correct concerns of such groups, and there is much relief that it is at last being pulled from our churches. Deo Gratias! The Autumn 2008 issue carries news of the demise of Catholic OMNIBUS on the front page:
"Unfortunately, NBCW works on a very limited budget we are unable (sic) to continue printing Catholic OMNIBUS, however, it will still be available and can be downloaded from the Web site. We passionately believe that the Church in England and Wales needs a national paper/magazine which encompasses and includes the breadth and depth of the prayer and work of the Church: the contribution of Lay people, Religious life and the Ordained ministry."

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
