LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Well . . . what excellent news.

You may remember the Lautsi case, in which the European Court decided that Italy should remove crucifixes from the classrooms of its state schools because they could offend the sensibilities of atheists.

The Italian Government, very wisely, decided that this was 'a bridge too far', and decided to appeal the decision : an appeal which is due to be heard shortly.

However, The Apostolate of the Laity has a story today saying that ten European countries (as well as the European Centre for Law & Justice) have been joined to the case - because they want to oppose the position adopted by the Court.

This is excellent news : not least because the list of countries includes Orthodox, as well as Catholic ones, but also because it is putting down a marker to the godless - the Christian Faith will tolerate your 'opinions' so far, and no further.

Read all about it here : and please, pray that this Appeal succeeds, and the original decision is overthrown.
