My apologies for my absence over the past few days. My time has been largely committed to a committee meeting and follow up tasks for the Soho Masses group, but even worse has been continuous disruptions to my Internet access. I am now more or less up to date with the Soho Masses business, the Internet provision this morning seems erratic bat intermittently available, and perhaps I can begin to get up to date – there is enough material waiting.
The prospect is daunting – there is a long list of posts I have been wanting to get to, Rob in Woking has very discreetly but pointedly drawn my attention to news items that I have been neglecting, and sitting down to my keyboard this morning I quickly found four important posts on other sites than are crying out for reflection and comment.
I do not have time to write properly about the other posts as I would like to, so have been contented to simply list then in “This morning’s Web Reads”.
What I have been waiting to write about myself:
A review and commentary of John McNeills’ “Sex as God intended”;
A proper review of the stimulating film “For the Bible Tells Me So”, which I reported seeing with Rob some weeks ago.
Further notes on the Bookshelf, which has been neglected;
An expansion of the existing web “links” into a more useful web guide – what is worth consulting, and for what purpose.
Discussion on the place of Conscience & the Sensus Fidelium in developing a personal faith;
Spirituality and discernment in the formation of conscience;
The distinction & tension between Papal authority and Papal power;
Elaboration of my earlier posts about the Kairos moment, and emergent signs of hope amidst the well-publicised gloom.
Ongoing response to fresh news.
That will keep me busy – before I can write about some of these, I need to do the research to beef up my own knowledge! Listing them is not the same as actually writing, but its a start. Bear with me.
