A scene from Holy Thursday 2006. Don't miss the spectacular Holy Week events starting this coming Thursday. Good Friday is always a packed house at Assumption Grotto, and the Easter Vigil is absolutely stunning!
CANON LAW UPDATE
I've been quite busy with work and time has been tight for other reasons, limiting some of my blogging capabilities. I would, however, like to pass on a few items:
Canonist, Ed Peters, gives us an interesting look into details of Archbishop Burke's treatment of the "womenpriests". Ed explains that Abp Burke's application of Canon Law is....well, one for the books.

POPE BENEDICT'S VISIT
If you are interested in the upcoming Papal visit, I highly recommend you frquently visit the blog of Tom Peters - the American Papist. It looks like Tom won't be just an ordinary arm-chair Papist at this event.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CYBER-PRIEST
Life in the internet domain name era can get interesting as Fr. Z recently learned. A snafu transformed his site into something that had him praying all the way back home where he finally tracked down the problem. If you want a chuckle this morning, go read his post: WDTPRS: blog or … dating service?
Before Fr. Z's site went down, he provided excellent coverage of the Pope's Penance service, in which he heard private confessions and provided a talk, for which Fr. Z provided a quick translation (scroll down).
CARDINAL MEDINA ESTEVEZ INTERVIEW
The New Liturgical Movement has a great interview of the former Prefect of the CDW Cardinal Medina Estevez by Petrus. You would recognize him if you recall the face of the Cardinal who introduced to the new Pope Benedict XVI saying, Habemus Papam!
UPDATE: O.L. OF GUADALUPE SHRINE IN LACROSSE
NLM has been showing some awesome details in photos coming out of LaCrosse, Wisconsin of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine.
In this photo post of Archbishop Burke at Assumption Grotto, I discussed how he was soliciting funds for this most worthy project.
