Bishop Lindsay remembered

Briefing: an interesting anecdote from an otherwise unfriendly obituary on him which is doing the rounds. Let us pray that his good deeds find favour with Our Lord. And that they might be imitated by his brother bishops here on earth.

From an email: Bishop Hugh Lindsay died on Monday at the age of 81 after a short illness. His letter-writing mania has finally come to an end. Throughout his episcopate he was the implacable foe of Sacred Tradition. But in fairness to him, it seems appropriate to recall the occasional good deed that he did. In the late 1970's a church in Jarrow was broken into - the tabernacle was opened and Communion hosts were scattered around the church. Bishop Lindsay ordered all-night Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in every church of the diocese in reparation for the sacrilege perpetrated.

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
