Have You Seen Bin Laden's Name in Your Parish Bulletin?

Hello, Coffee Talkers!

Apparently, Osama bin Laden's name was printed in parish bulletins in Florida and in Ireland, because well-meaning parishioners had requested that Masses be offered for the repose of his soul. Well, turns out that a whole lotta people got their theological panties in a bind over this business, so Catholic canon lawyer Edward Peters sheds a little light on the subject in his blog "In Light of the Law." I think his post makes for an interesting and thoughtful read, so check it out, y'all!

As always, thanks for stopping by, and be assured of my prayers!

Peace and all good,
