In the last year of his life, Saint Anthony of Padua had a tree house built in a walnut tree, to use as a hermitage, a place of prayer and contemplation. These are reflections coming from my contemplating God's world as a Secular Franciscan.

Reunification On Hold; for Now!
The signals that came from a recent homily by the leader of the Society of Saint Pius X, indicate that the process of reunification of the Society with the Roman Catholic Church, is on hold, again. While specifics of what was in the documents the SSPX were being asked to sign remain secret, one can assume that the stumbling block remains the teachings that came out of the Second Vatican Council. The Vatican Insider has reported on the story.
The Vatican Insider has also reported that Pope Benedict XVI has not given up on returning the SSPX to the flock. He has appointed Archbishop Joseph DiNoia, to continue pursuing the work of bringing about reunification.
