I like your idea of pursuing a creative passion. It really does get your mind off the negative news out there.

The Monks Return to Whalley
Some joint working happens, but there are obstacles, such as women's ordination. A bishop can administer all sacraments, but while an abbot can confirm he can only ordain to minor orders, unlike a bishop who can ordain fully. Thus an abbot can ...

The Monks Return to Whalley
It is good that the site is being given back to God and His usage. Are there any efforts or progress with having the Anglican Church reunite with the Catholic Church? It had come up as a possibility in the past, as with the Lutherans, but the ...

The Gathering Tide: a review
I don't think that Ulpha Farm has a specially environmentally friendly way of pumping. It is not the same water that recycles, but rainwater from the hills that flows down.

The Philosopher and the Gospels: a review
The Franciscan has a case in that no good God would invent Hell; but the Jesuit is correct to say that Hell [in the sense of rejection of God ] is a possibility.

The Philosopher and the Gospels: a review
I preferentially go with Franciscans but the Jesuits have done so much for knowledge in their information-gathering that I'll go with them. Which priest is your choice?

The Gathering Tide: a review
Thank you! It sounds like an interesting, natural landscaping feature (perhaps not just for the sandier of properties), something I as an arborist appreciate.

The Role of the papacy
I took the photo from the dome of St Peter's. I suppose that had there been good will the problem of the schism could have been resolved.

The Gathering Tide: a review
Think of a broom with a head made of laurel leaves. Stick the handle in the sand. That is a brob.

The Philosopher and the Gospels: a review
Yes, who would want to stay in Hell, so if you can choose to move on Hell becomes purgatory. There is a tale. Three priests were discussing Hell. The Dominican [an order of strict observance], says there is a Hell and many people are in it; ...

Jesus:the Hidden Years
Mary would have been busy with house and grandchildren. Remember, Jesus had brothers and sisters, four brothers, sisters not numbered. John of Damascus says that Joseph was a widower with children.

Hugel Culture: raised beds German style
In Permaculture there are no hard and fast rules, so if a mound needs initial covering, cover it. So you got a storm last night as well. For the first time in my forty one years here in Stretford there was flooding. Fortunately, my house was ...

Yes to deaconesses
There is no satisfactory answer to rejecting women's callings. Rejecting them is like telling God to keep quiet! I think that refutation is taken as implying that the women are making a mistake.
