I for one spontaneously grew a 5-inch hair fringe while reading it.

I'll feast on rad-trad tears.
It'll be an all-you-can-eat buffet since Pope Paul VI is also being canonized!

Except in that case, the tears seem more warranted...
Precisely! An all-you-can-eat buffet of rad-trad tears! 

Clearly I should have been more specific about the contents of the buffet   :-[

I think we're all kind of losing sight of the analogy lol.

Amen, Amen, Amen to this! One of my spiritual heroes! And NO, he was not a "liberation theologian." He identified with the poor and the oppressed, and he preached the Gospel of love and peace and justice for all. But he renounced violence on all sides and in all of its insidious forms. He was murdered while conducting Mass.






















And from his final sermon:




And if you get the chance to watch the movie, "Romero", starring Raul Julia, please do. It's wonderful.

I thought I had posted some photos and quotes of Archbishop Oscar Romero, but they don't seem to be showing up. Can anyone tell me if they can see them?

Selam

I can't.

I hate office hours. Why an Earth I should work on specific times even if I'm feeling sleepy instead of just sleeping and working during during the evening and/or on weekend.

I think the reasoning is that you'd be less likely to actually do it. Sort of like the homeschooler who keeps promising to "double up" on their work later so that they can goof off in the here and now... and then it never actually happens.

Of course, that traditional analysis never takes into account people gold bricking during office hours, so you might have a point.

For some reason my YouTube recommends are getting a lot of alt-right types complaining about the new Thundercats cartoon. One of which calls it a "cartoon for a cucked up generation" *insert laugh track here*

My YouTube recommendations include a bunch of anti-Illuminati stuff even though I have never watched a conspiracy video (excepting the one time way back some now-banned OC.netter made a video about how OC.net is worldly and full of Masons or somesuch.) Maybe it's because of that weird part of the Venn diagram where 'Dox converts sometimes converge with InfoWars fans?

Oh I think I remember the guy you're talking about lol.

I think YouTube's algorithms make weird connections sometimes based on the invisible tags that the uploader adds.

Another very good example would be the reforms Pope Pius X made to the Roman Breviary and to the Missal, which were huge improvements, and not disruptive or opposed to tradition (he also went to great lengths to insist upon Gregorian chant or the traditional music of composers like Palestrina).

The reforms of Pope Pius X were more extensive and disruptive than generally supposed and violate immemorial tradition in a few respects. The Missal was not affected nearly as much as the Breviary, so the laity barely noticed. The changes went beyond rearranging the psalms, though the disruptions are connected with that change.

Well, no, but the leadership recognized the limitations of the guerilla, abstentionist approach. They were very savvy about their actions; toward the end, a lot more targeting of unoccupied buildings or mortar strikes on empty Heathrow runways, just enough to cause chaos and consternation without killing anyone. Compare with the approach of the Loyalist militias who were just mindless thugs to the end. The Good Friday Agreement gave the Irish republicans a lot of political gains which they now are exploiting in Sinn Fein. No one knows if/ when Ireland will be unified but they have a much better chance of it now.
I agree with you fully, I was just trying to appear edgy.
