Gothic vestments: the real thing
The Gothic versus Roman debate on vestments can lead to disproportionately strong feeling. The English College at Rome has a very fine High Mass set made by Pugin. At least it was very fine until the one-time Rector, Arthur Hinsley, cut the chasuble into a ...

Dreamland, the Shell Grotto and Botany Bay

Catholic Dilemma 288: Cremation, Catholics and the Resurrection
I am now well into my nineties and have been considering my death for some years. I see that the Church now allows cremation, but since we believe in the resurrection of the body, what worries me is that afterwards, there is no body, only ashes. The 19th ce...
