“Exult, let them exult, the hosts of heaven…”

Looking for a recording of the new Exsultet?  Look no further. The version below comes from this website (I believe the text is available there as well, and you can download it to your iPod).  Be forewarned: it’s long.  About a minute or so longer than the version most of us are familiar with.  And [Read More...]

What’s on TV tonight? Don’t ask

The AP’s David Bauder watches TV so you don’t have to.  And it’s not pretty: Last week seemed typical for CBS’ sitcoms on Monday night, television’s most popular — and raunchy — night of comedy. There was a strip club visit on “How I Met Your Mother,” lap dance included. The stars of “2 Broke [Read More...]

More on Michael Voris and “safeguarding ‘Catholicity’”

From canon lawyer Ed Peters, one month into the Michael Voris/RealCatholicTV/Archdiocese of Detroit standoff: Canon 216 embraces “any undertaking” not just “any undertaking that seems to be heterodox”. Most of what Voris/RCTV produces would probably pass doctrinal muster, but that happy fact counts for little in the face of the undoubted canonical requirement to secure [Read More...]

From TV producer to priest?

The Milwaukee Catholic Herald has the scoop: A producer, one might say, is not unlike a parish priest organizing a liturgy for a special occasion.

Tebow didn’t win, but his bible verse still scored on TV

Maybe things didn’t turn out Saturday the way Tim Tebow might have hoped. But the gang at Focus on the Family used the big game to run the ad below — which, imho, is a winner. UPDATE: Melinda Henneberger in the Washington Post is less impressed: Though not exactly a Benetton commercial – I think [Read More...]

Google pays tribute to a blessed priest and scientist

That would be Bishop Nicolas Steno.  Google’s description of him: Google revealed its latest homescreen Google Doodle today, this time commemorating the birth of Nicolas Steno, a 17th century researcher and bishop who straddled the worlds of science and religion. Born on this day, all the way back in 1683, Steno studied medicine at the University of [Read More...]

Another list of favorite blogs… — UPDATED

…this time, from a blogging bishop. Christopher Coyne, from Indianapolis, offers his own take on Catholic websites, broken into two parts, over at his blog Let Us Walk Together. It has some names that are familiar — and maybe some that aren’t.  Take a look! UPDATE: He just posted Part Deux. [Read more...]

A few more things about Voris and RealCatholic TV…

Canon lawyer Ed Peters today follows up on his post from earlier this week and addresses a couple more questions, including one that a lot of people have raised: What about every other use of the word ‘Catholic’ out there? The question rests on a multitude of scenarios, of course, and I can’t address them [Read More...]
