Everyday I get the news headlines from Cath News Australia, which is funded by the Bishop's conference. I do want to know what is happening in the Church in Australia - but I often have to swallow a few times though, and grit my teeth as I read the liberal propaganda that it often features. And this week they are really on a roll!
Apart from the usual selection of unfortunate headlines and spins, first there was an extremely positive (and very secular) review of the virulently anti-catholic new X-files movie on Monday.
And then there came today's featured website... Brisbane's 'Liturgy Lines', the website of the infamous Mrs Elizabeth Harrington, under the heading of 'The liturgist's dream'.
Alas, Coo-ees from the Cloister are no more or they would have had a field day on this one! Because as we all know, Brisbane is such a wonderful model of everything good in the liturgy....complete with invalid baptisms, lay ministers galore, syncretism and idolatry, and the obstruction of the spread of the TLM.
The site features all sorts of helpful publications - like guidelines for Sunday non-Mass celebrations (which fortunately seem likely to be abolished shortly in Australia), and documents on all your favourite topics such as children's liturgies.
My stomach was already upset, I didn't need this. Could someone please fix up Cath News?
