Prayer for England

O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England thy Dowry and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in thee. By thee it was that Jesus our Saviour and our hope was given unto the world; and He has given thee to us that we might hope still more. Plead for us thy children, whom thou didst receive and accept at the foot of the cross. O sorrowful Mother, intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the supreme Shepherd, the Vicar of thy Son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with thee, in our heavenly home. Amen.

Little Flowers

According to The Telegraph, Andrea Tornielli is releasing a new book about Pope Francis entitled, 'The Little Flowers of Pope Francis'.

So, it looks like my 'Pope Francis Little Book of Insults' will have competition, indeed, next year.

Both titles are, in my opinion, in poor taste.

Tornielli's book will be interesting.

I can't wait for the recounting of 'how Pope Francis tamed the self-absorbed, promethean neo-Pelagian, sourpuss, long-faced mournful, authoritarian, elitist, querulous and disillusioned pessimist, careerist, elitist, liquid Christian, rosary counting, functionary airport Bishop'.

Dear Laurence, I enjoy what you write and you are very witty. However, try and avoid the sarcasm because it takes away from your message. Barring that bit of criticism, please keep up the good work! Kind regards, David Morton

I wonder when those close to the pope will give him the same much needed admonishment.

How about, too, a book of the new obligations binding under the pain of mortal sin for every Catholic that have emerged since last March.

For instance, one must be over the moon because Pope Francis is Person of the Year.
