In other news...

A couple of items of interest....
  • New sex abuse guidelines - the Vatican has released new guidelines on the handling of sex abuse cases.  They certainly look tougher and clearer to me... 
  • Canadian Ordinariate - there have been assorted rumours about a stalling of progress in Canada (and by implication at least in Australia).  Now the Delegate, Archbishop Collins has issued a statement on the way forward;
  • our bishops have issued a media release to mark the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of Rerum Novarum, and the development of Catholic social teaching last Sunday;
  • Australia's peak Muslim body has made a submission to the Government inquiry on multiculturalism advocating sharia law for Australia (yep, it is really true) - but a 'moderate variety', that is one that only disadvantages women in the area of divorce law and inheritance, just like in the UK...
