The MSNBC people were quick to say "let's not read into it" but she also said she wasn't accustomed to hearing the bells at the bottom of the hour...
CBS News reports an update is expected from the Vatican in about an hour - posted over here:
Update: Vatican says "very grave condition" 'Serious' Pope has heart failure Post 902
Who won't be in Sistine Chapel this time?
You mean the cardinals when they sleep?
I know they'll be staying at St Martha's... the suites that JPI had built to accomodate them.
We have almost an hour before the news "briefing."
It's a sort of luke-warm, protestantized version of Catholicism. It's hard to define. Think of horrible architecture in new churches, and liturgical dance, and dumbed-down liturgies with less kneeling (or no kneelers at all). Think of Rembert Weakland and his ilk going around tearing out communion rails and 'modernizing' churches by moving the sanctuary to a prayer room and discouraging or cancelling Adoration of the Blessed Sacrement and the Stations, think of gender-neutral translations of the bible readings.
Tiny abuses nibbling at the edges until the 'universal' church is not recognizable at all.
Thank you for the ping bd476
We don't eat meat on Friday's here either,
and I rarely go to Mass without my lace scarf.
I love tradition.
Nothing on regular TV (I don't have cable). On radio: an update (Vatican) due at 4:30AM EST.
I don't think they'll even vote there (Sistine Chapel). Yes, the new facilities.
Onyx, I found some of my Mother's old cherished lace scarves in some of her things - brought back so many memories... goose bumps.
You're welcome Mo1. How're you doing?
Oh, I have dish tv.
Vatican radio is GOOD.
Oh, bd, that's wonderful.
Hold them close.
You have my sincere sympathy for the loss of your mom.
I'd love to see that, but we wouldn't want an open schism. There's other ways to do it, such as not approving ICEL liturgical translations, etc.
You gave me an idea! I can try the live stream at EWTN. Thanks!
I had my confirmation with him.
One thing I can tell you is who ever the Pope will be, isn't going to be an American.
Thank you Onyx. I probably shouldn't have brought personal loss into this thread, just thought of her and my Dad.
Oh Kingu that is one of the nicest comments I have ever read. Thank you so much.
But, beware... I was told on another thread earlier today,
that EWTN parroted the mistaken news about the Pope's death.
I had rushed home at Noon and turned on EWTN and then posted I had done so for "accuracy." LOL. Boy,, did I get straightened out fast.
