...and now the Necessaries

Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of two local churchs celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita area. Though this blog is loosely centered around this parish and it's members, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of, or for, St. Anthony Parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.

The Chapel of Our Shared Souls
An Exhibit of Stations of the Cross
Steckline Art Gallery, DeMattias Fine Arts Center, Newman University

Submitted by Lynda Beck

David Murano, CityArts Director will exhibit his stations of the cross and the last supper.

The exhibit will run through April 23. Additionally, the gallery will host an “Art for Lunch” lecture from 12:00-1:00 p.m. next Tuesday, March 30, where Mr. Murano will be available to answer questions about the exhibit. This lecture is free and open to the public, with a light lunch available to the first 20 guests (or feel free to bring your own brown bag lunch).

Lynda Beck, Curator for Arts, St. Clare Sunshine Room at St. Anthony: "...it is a very cool presentation, it will be up through most of April, I encourage everyone who loves the art of the Church, to get out to Newman to view this show..... it's not everyday ya know that the Steckline exhibits Catholic art."

Statistics on the Clerical Abuse Scandal
By Rev. James W. Jackson, FSSP
The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Bulletin

Fr. Dwight Longnecker has a good blog, and he re-viewed a book by Prof. Phillip Jenkins of Penn State on the phenomenon of priests that are pedophiles. A total of 400 priests have been accused of this crime since 1982, out of 50,000 priests; many of these cases are pending and a good number should turn out to be false accusations. This non-Catholic professor did some re-search on the subject (ugly as it is) and found out some things for you to know in your apologetics, especially now that this topic has hit Ireland and Europe so hard and is back on the front page:

  • Married men are more likely to abuse chil-dren than unmarried men.
  • All religious groups have pedophilia statis-tics, and the Catholic Church is at the bottom of the list.
  • Of all the professions, Christian clergy are the least likely to offend. The top offending professions are doctors, teachers and farmers.
  • Among clergy offenders, Catholic priests are the least likely to offend.
  • However, no other organization, religion or institution receives as much attention about this crime as does the Catholic Church.
The accusations against the Holy Father on the han-dling of an abuse case are wildly prejudicial. Catholic News Service has the full story in an article by John Thavis. The 'ew York Times has been in this case – as usual – looking for any stick to beat the pope with. The release of the article coincides with the US bishop’s opposition to the health care bill, which the Times strongly support. The pope handled the case perfectly well when he was Cardinal Ratizinger.
