More interesting news on Sacramentum Caritatis

I have been very busy with work and family so I have not had a chance to continue reading Sacramentum Caritatis. However, skimming a few internet posts, consider reading those below.

Anything linking to Fr. Z's website may or may not be working when you go to click on it. If you get an error, or a single page talking about high traffic, just try his site a little later - in off peak hours. The only problem is that you need to consider there is no single clock on the internet. Peak hours here in the US are in the evenings from 7-9 for my site. But, Fr. Z is in Rome, and there are people viewing from Down Under, and many other continents. Just keep trying back. And, if you frequent his site, consider hitting that donation button and give him something to upgrade. While this site is free, the level of content he had was not. The more hits he gets, the more bandwidth he needs and the more it costs. I sent my donation in because I pretty much read his articles daily. It's one of the first stops I make in the blogosphere.

Sandro Magister: "Sacramentum Caritatis": Everyone to Mass on Sunday

Fr. Zuhlsdorf: Another yranslation error in Sacramentum Caritatis and some sharp comments

Fr. Zuhlsdorf: Killing the Exhortation by Silence




THE JOURNALISTIC LACK-OF-INTEGRITY AWARD

In general, mainstream media in typical fashion has taken this beautiful document and communicated to the public in their headlines:

From the New York Times: Pope Reaffirms View Opposing Gay Marriage and Abortion

From Associated Press: Pope Reaffirms Traditional Views

From Reuthers (via ABC News): Catholics must oppose gay marriage

I'm not sure which should get the trophy. Let's award it to all three and the many other news outlets which blew the real news coverage of Sacramentum Caritatis. What else would we expect. The Angel of Darkness is alive and well.

As I noted in some other combox: "one expects sacramentalism from the Pope and excrementalism from the press.
