Asia News: Battle over peace “reopens old wounds that never healed”
Fr Domenico Vitali, a Jesuit, has been in Japan for more than half a century. He spoke to AsiaNews about Japan’s ongoing debate over constitutional reform. For him,” It is not about being in favour or against war, but about arguments heard before the Second World War” based on nationalist rhetoric and honour. Even within the Church, “various groups have split to take different positions”.

A Profile of Owen Chadwick

by David Warren

Yet I’ve been sometimes repelled by a writer who seemed himself to believe a little in progress. He was no reactionary, and he played a direct part in the evolution of, for instance, Selwyn College, which under his watch admitted men, and then women, too, of other faiths or of no faith at all. What a bounder.

That's still rather progressive. Too much of a scholar, not enough of an educator and observer of human nature?

Peter Hitchens: The Man (You've Never Heard of) Who Tried To Kill Hitler


What's the Justification for What was Done to the Church of Our Saviour?

Fr. Rutler's former parish -- Iconoclasm in New York City. "Too much art"? "This is too foreign to the Roman rite"?

I had visited the temple several times, whenever I could during my visits to NYC. This is sad and infuriating. Getting rid of the icons of St. Augustine Zhao Rong and St. Andrew Kim as well? How un-PC! Once the icon of Christ Pantocrator is removed I will have no reason to visit the temple at all.
