The St. Louis Review published in last Friday's edition a very nice Lenten reflection by Canon Michael Wiener of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, Rector of St. Francis de Sales Oratory.
I have been wanting to post it here, but for some reason, though I have given the Review the pint of blood and iris scan it demands to access its content online, it won't let me view it anyway. It's sort of like the Monty Python Insurance Sketch where the vicar plunked down for the "Never-Pay Policy".
So, if you are fortunate enough to have 1) a subscription to the Review and 2) some luck, you can follow the link above to the "Opinions" tab, then click "Viewpoints".
However that may be, the decision of the Review's editor and board to publish this is welcome indeed. A very good sign of good things happening under new leadership.
As an aside, it occurred to me that as I routinely post from the Oratory's newsletter on local happenings that it might be good to let readers know that you can sign up to receive this newsletter directly by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
