Spirit of Vatican II
Priest, Prophet, King
Catholics for ...
Press release from the Catholic Bishops' Conference

"In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" "Amen" "Good Morning everybody" "Good Morning Father" "To prepare ourselves ..."
Martin Luther King
Minister of the Eucharist

"We together, as God's people"
"Lord, you know ..."
I'll stop there, having managed to boost my blood pressure up to the point where I know my heart is still working properly.
