Several weeks ago, I posted information on a petition to support Vatican II, together with a link. This post has continued to attract readers and support, and many of you have followed the link to the petition site. Thank you.
There have been numerous reports since then of the wide attention and support that this petition has attracted from around the globe, but the job is not over yet. I have received an email from the German organisers, which I report for you below. You will see that the date for submission – Maundy Thursday – is fast approaching. In the meantime, we still need to continue gathering support. If you have not yet done so, please read and sign the petition now. If you have already signed, please help to distribute it further to all friends, family and colleagues.
