NZ CATHOLIC BISHOPS' CONFERENCE

https://www.catholic.org.nz/news/media-releases/

Website goes live for Catholic Church's Te Ara a Maria celebration (27 Jul 2021)
https://www.catholic.org.nz/news/media-releases/tearaamaria-celebration/
In January 1838 Bishop Pompallier, Aotearoa New Zealand's first
bishop, dedicated New Zealand to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven. On this
year's Solemnity of the Assumption, on the 15th of August, the New
Zealand Catholic community is going to renew that dedication following
the numerous requests the bishops received during the lockdown asking
for Mary's protection of Aotearoa New Zealand in such troubling
international times ...


NZCBC on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CatholicNZ/

** Our bishops will be joining together on Sunday 15 August -- the
Feast of the Assumption -- to renew the 1838 dedication of the country
to Mary. Check out the new Te Ara a Maria website

** Every parish will take part in the Sunday 15 August rededication of
Aotearoa NZ to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven, but everyone is also
invited to the special Mass at St Mary of the Angels in Wellington,
whether you are in Wellington or beyond. Space will be limited
however!

Obituary: Philip Sherry brought gravitas and authority to the news
https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/125878336/obituary-philip-sherry-brought-gravitas-and-authority-to-the-news
When Philip Sherry read his last bulletin on TV3 in 1990, he was the
same formal, coolly detached broadcaster viewers had first seen on
what was then WNTV-1 – the fledgling channel that served the lower
North Island – in 1962. He was one of a generation of broadcasters
still fondly remembered from a time when television was such a novelty
that people gathered on footpaths outside home appliance businesses
that kept TV sets running in their shop windows ...

When Cameron O'Hearn set out two years ago to create a documentary on
the Traditional Latin Mass, he envisioned it being an invitation to
his fellow Catholics. What he didn't anticipate was Pope Francis also
making it a news event by restricting the Mass's celebration a month
before the documentary was set to release ...

If you want to understand why Pope Francis is willing to use the power
of his office to enforce discipline on the Latin Mass but not on
communion for pro-choice politicians, maybe a concern for

Ahead of the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, Pope Francis welcomed a

Constantinople on Monday, urging Orthodox and Catholic faithful to not
"squander" the "dramatic crisis" caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The
"scourge" of the pandemic, the pope said in his remarks, "has tested
everyone and everything. Only one thing is more serious than this
crisis, and that is the risk that we will squander it, and not learn
the lesson it teaches. It is a lesson in humility, showing us that it
is not possible to live healthy lives in an unhealthy world, or to go

Bryan Watt loved a beer, rugby and a good time.
It would be unfair, however, to imply that a man who fathered 17
children and fostered another 12, and who spent a lifetime serving the
community, was a larrikin. Known to all as Wattie, he died recently in
the family home holding the hand of Ann, his cherished wife of 62
years. A deep commitment to Catholicism underpinned everything he did,
as did the love for his wife and family.

STATION XV (podcast)

http://station15.co.nz/

Episode 163 — Consultation, Cardinal, Canada, Canon Law (June 20, 2021)

Pope Francis has just announced that there will be a three-year
buildup to the next Synod of Bishops, inviting Catholics around the
world to share their thoughts on Church affairs. Will it be a valuable
process? Or just set people up for disappointment? In Germany, there
was a mix of excitement and disappointment when Cardinal Reinhard Marx
offered his resignation, but Pope Francis didn't accept that offer.
Anna, Don, James and Gavin tackle those topics, as well as the news of
more than 200 bodies being found at a Canadian residential school the
Church helped run and changes announced to canon law. In the light
story for the month, the panel marvels at a Scottish shed that's a
spiritual home for Catholics — in many parts of the world. Enjoy the
show and, if you like it, tell your friends about The 15th Station.

"And the sun stood still" Joshua 10:13

'Galileo: Scientist, Astronomer, Visionary' is an exhibition of the
works of the eminent Italian scientist Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) at
the Canterbury Museum. The exhibition's website declares that
"Galileo's radical theories about Earth's place in the solar system
saw him imprisoned by church authorities"
https://www.canterburymuseum.com/whats-on/galileo-scientist-astronomer-visionary/
and this claim is repeated by other media.

This legend of the imprisonment of Galileo is a fable. For presenting
as proven fact his theory that the earth moves, rather than the sun,
contrary to Scripture (Joshua 10:13), he was sentenced to house arrest
at his home near Florence and banned from publishing and meeting other
scientists. He ignored both bans and received a number of colleagues
at home. He also continued his researches and published groundbreaking
work on two new sciences.
