I think I had perhaps the ugliest challenging in Ottawa as anywhere, the ugliest confrontation I think I've had anywhere," Kaufman

That's one of the points made in the papal quotations I posted previously: Things can and should be said much better than the Monsignor and others of his ilk who visit here!

Come on and give it a try. I'll bet you COULD say it much better!

Monsignor Vincent Foy, a former head of Toronto's archdiocesan marriage tribunal, wrote of Kaufman's book in a review reprinted in that city's Catholic Register: "With ... certainty it can be said that the humblest Catholic of our times, accepting the teaching of the church, is more enlightened on the truth of God and the way to him than are all the sad dissenters."
Couldn't have said it any better myself!

Replying to:

Brothers and Sisters, are you familiar with the Liturgical Press at leading publishers of Catholic lectionaries, mass guides, bulletins and such, a ministry of the Benedictine monks of St. John’s Abbey or ?

I encourage you to visit the Abbey, in cyberspace or Collegeville, especially the website of Rev. Philip S. Kaufman OSB, Monk, Author and Catholic Priest at or

A Benedictine monk for more that fifty years, he lives at Saint John's Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, and spends much of his time giving comfort to Catholics through workshops on topics from his books. Father Philip, now 88 years old and still in good health, continues to write on controversial subjects in the Catholic Church.

I especially encourage you to read “Probabilism: The Right to Know of Moral Options”, which is the third chapter of __Why You Can Disagree and Remain a Faithful Catholic__ and available online at

Some may be interested in Chapter 7, "Divorce and Remarriage", also available online at

For you southerners, take heart, though now a long-established northernr, Fr. Philip was born in Mississippi and got his master's degree in government from Louisiana State University. He has something to say to us all, I believe.

pax et bonum,
