About This Blog
SCE is a blog in "the Spirit of Benny 16". It is a place to discuss Catholic Theology, Ecumenism, Interfaith relations, History, Liturgy, Philosophy and whatever topics are hot in the ecclesiastical world!
I view the combox as the most important feature of this site, and I imagine our commentators sharing a glass of after dinner port as we discuss in a gentlemanly/ladylike manner the issues most dear to us.
Our motto on this blog is:
"Maior autem his est spes"

About five years ago, when my children were little (literally, they are now rivalling me for height), my oldest daughter set out to the pet shop to buy some pet mice. “Why mice?” asked the pet shop owner, “Have you … Continue reading
Many and various are the expectations for the Extraordinary Synod of Bishops to be held in October 2014 on the theme “The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of the Evangelisation.” Most bishops understand that this is an opportunity … Continue reading
There have been endless (and I do mean endless – they are still going on) articles published in both print and online regarding the interpretation of Pope Francis’s interviews. Among the most contentious statements he is reported to have made … Continue reading
Here’s something I didn’t know. When the statue of Our Lady of Fatima arrived by helicopter in the Vatican, her first port of call was the chapel of the residence of the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. From there, she went … Continue reading
Jeff Tan’s thoughts on today’s Gospel at One Bread, One Body prompted me to make a brief comment on his post. He didn’t go much into the title of his post “Your faith has saved you”, but it was particularly that … Continue reading
