**Pope Benedict asks for "greater composure during liturgy". Applause and acclimations are out of place. I agree. We are there to worship God.
**One of the most ignorant statements I have ever heard form a priest comes from Fr. McBrien - "Eucharistic adoration, perpetual or not, is a doctrinal, theological, and spiritual step backward, not forward." Wow. Another reason to ignore Fr. McBrien's books.
**The Vatican has assigned those who will dialogue with SSPX leaders. Pray for this initiative of unity.
