Cardinal Hume: Statement on 1967 Abortion Act reform

Cardinal Hume & Cardinal Gray (St Andrews and Edinburgh) issued a joint statement.
Sad that resolutions to support 1967 Abortion Act reform were accepted by the TUC and Labour Party Conference. This law runs contrary to the Preamble of the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child which was adopted on 20 November 1959. Members of the TUC and the Labour party "... experience, however, a tension between that loyalty and what they recognise to be the law of God on the sanctity of life ... moral issues should be left to the individual conscience."

Hume, George Basil Rev (1923-1999)

Fr Baker: Downham Market Statement

Being discredited by the Bishop for a love of the same Mass that the Bishop professes. Repudiate charge of being disobedient as he is following his conscience. Challenges the four area covered by the Bishop's secretary (Fr Morgan). Ludicrous allegation that Fr Baker's ministry is harmful - much support, sympathy and encouragement received. Will continue to offer Mass in Downham Market.

"Ite Missa Est"

An article by Fr Bruckberger OP which appeared in the Daily Figaro on January 24 1975 has been translated into English by Owen Roberts.
"Do they take us for Idiots?" - prohibition of one rite, one liturgy, one manner of saying Mass (Mass of St Pius V). Paul VI Mass is authorised not imposed. A perpetual indult exists for the Mass of Pope St Pius V. It concludes with "Let them leave us to worship in a thousand years old rite..."

Statement on Freemasonry

Canon Law 2335 no longer automatically bars a Catholic from masonic groups unless that group is known to be hostile to the Church, in which case the Catholic is excommunicated. Bishops of England and Wales clarify a Catholics' standing with Freemasonry membership, anticipating changes to Canon Law. The catholic wishing to join a masonic group should contact his Bishop.
Priest, religious and members of Secular institutions are still forbidden to accept membership of the Masonic Order or similar organisation.
