Bishops and Priests in the news: I know you will pray for them all.

Some current and recent Zenit items (link in sidebar and then scroll to appropriate date):

Colombian Fr. Gustavo Velez Vasquez (79) whose disappearance was reported earlier has been found dead in dense forest. May he rest in peace. (10th September 09)

Pope: Church needs a Few (?) Good Confessors.
Sends message to Italy's National Liturgical Week (August 25th 09).
An unusually bad headline for Zenit. Actually the Pope said that the Church "needs wise and holy spiritual teachers" who are able not only to hear confessions, but also to educate consciences. I don't think the word 'few' would have entered his head!!

More news items tomorrow and details of the Spiritual Bouquet I sent on our behalf to Bishop Martino, emeritus of Scranton diocese, PA.
