Sebastian Gomes needs to tell us specifically what did the bishops say, not give us his impressions.  When you say "The bishops are very conscious of X"  Realize that those of us who minister at Ground Zero are not helped by what the bishops are conscious of.  We want to know what do the bishops want us to tell our people.  We don't care about the atmosphere either.You spent too much time on that point.  The pope and the bishops do not work in my parish.  If you can tell us that X number of bishops said "This" and Y number of bishops said "That", it would be much more helpful to us out here in ministry.  Glossing over the events taking place at the synod does not help us  understand what the bishops are thinking.

I know nothing about music, but I know about joy.  The most impressive part of this performance is the joy that radiates through the moment.  Sister's joy is contagious.  Whether the judges are believers or not, one can't dismiss that she contaminated them with her joy and her simplicity, which is almost childlike without being childish.  Now THAT'S preaching.

WRONG!  There was no such mass.  It was a gathering of three faiths, each praying independently, side by side.  The event did not take place "in the Vatican" as we know it.  It took place in a garden in Vatican City State.  Vatican City is a sovereign nation.  While there are chapels, basilicas and parishes inside the State of Vatican City, it does not mean that every part of Vatican City is consecrated ground.  Consecration only applies to the churches, chapels and the Basilica, not to the territory of the City.

The event took place on Pentecost Sunday.  This is true.  The reason was quite simple.  Israel is due for a change in presidency.  There was not much time.  

There is nothing contrary to Revealed Moral Truth to ask people to pray for peace.
