Mgr. Palud corrects me, and he’s looking for vocations

Monsignor Michael Palud – a knowledgeable priest whose many titles includes doctor of canon law, Vicar General of the Diocese of Mandeville, and Prior General of the Missionary Society of Mandeville – has gently corrected my earlier comments about how the society was founded out of the ashes of the Fils de Marie, which were based upon media reports I had read. (And before I forget, please check out the related Journey of a Young Priest blog – well worth reading for those following the LC

REM = Regnum Christi escaped musicians?

From a reader who wishes to remain anonymous because of his employment situation: “Pete – you picked the wrong REM song to describe the movement. Try ‘Losing my Religion’.” (See What’s the frequency, Alvaro?)
Hmmm….now that you mention it, other REM favorites include: Shiny Happy People, The End of the World, Everybody Hurts, I Took Your Name, Bang and Blame (particularly the verse “The whole world hinges on your swings/ Your secret life of indiscreet discretions”), I Believe, Just a Touch, and Imitation of Life.
