Rorate Caeli

Grazie a L'Osservatore Romano!

We thank the editorial team of the official daily of the Holy See, L'Osservatore Romano, for noticing and quoting from our editorial note on the fallible nature of papabili prognostication and the pressures that the mass media wishes to apply on the Cardinal Electors, in a piece by Silvia Guidi published in the Monday-Tuesday edition.

We greatly appreciate this recognition of our efforts, as well as our readers who support our work every day.

This is awesome. A website can be noticed for many reasons, but when it is noticed that high up in the Church and given praise, it means quality and soundness is in evidence. Good job, RC et al. :)

I'm encouraged just by knowing that somebody at L'Osservatore reads Rorate Caeli. :)

Wow! Good job, NC! We trads are movin' on up in the world. Let us know if/when an English translation comes out; I'm sure we'd all be eager to read it.

Well done Rorate Caeli! Next step is to appear as a footnote in an Encyclical.

I find this news quite uplifting. Perhaps the next Pope is reading this comment of mine.

Holy Father, get rid of the Novus Ordo and give us back the real Catholic Mass; get rid of the sodo-mafia; get rid of the heretics; dump ecumenism, start excommunicating and let's have a good few anathemas whilst your at it.

You know it makes sense.

Thank you, Your Holiness.

Great job Rorate! Not being up to speed about your blog, is this owned and operated by one person? Thanks.

Kudos, n.C. That was a well-deserved honor.

Congratulations -- of course, this precise sort of hard-headedness is what Rorate thrives on.

Athelstane said...

Rorate is moving up!

Good work, gentlemen.

Sergius said...

Pope should be Italian. He is a bishop of Rome and his inhabitants.

Alsaticus said...

The pronostics have one great interest : they expose what orientation X or Y would like to see in the Roman government of the Church.

The arguments given in favor of one papabile or another are what matters in these games.

For ex. hearing cardinal Barbarin and Vingt-Trois is learning about a non or anti-ratzingerian orientation.
That goes also for John Allen etc.

Congratulations. Rorate Caeli deserves all the recognition. It is an excellent blog, a reference in the Catholic blogosphere. Thank you again for all your good work.

Pater, O.S.B. said...

Way to go! I am glad people in the Vatican are paying attention to the good work you are doing.

Daniel Rosaupan said...

Can we have the English Translation please?

SPWang said...

Thats a wonderful endorsement of your work and efforts. I'll take the opportunity now to say that Rorate has been a great influence on how we go about things and we're honored to be on your blog roll.

GQ Rep said...

Congratulations that the Vatican Newspaper itself follows your website. Proves how good and influential it is.

Nearly always your reports are 100% accurate.

As an aside, I'd like to ask you and other contributors if anyone else (besides me), is offended, and/or angry by the constant reports in the media regarding the Vatican leaks and now the supposed scandals and corruption being labeled as "Benedict XVI's Vatican" or "Benedict XVI's issues and problems".....when anyone who has an unbiased thinking brain in their head would know that the corruption, the rot, the mismanagement, the scandals, and all the supposed sexual issues in the Vatican and around the world concerning priests etc. began under Paul VI, and continued all the way thru John Paul II's term, and in some ways was much worse under JPII.
Andy yet, the man who made the mess and allowed for the corruption and mismanagement to go unchecked (JPII), is never mentioned. His image is seemingly above it all....while Benedict XVI is blamed for everything. That's a gross injustice to a man who tried to be a fine Pope and tried to do his job...but in large measure wasn't allowed to by the clique of dissidents and corruptors left behind from the previous reign (1978-2005).

I think all the truth will come out in the end....everything will be exposed. Benedict XVI will be vindicated at last.

It is tremendously encouraging that Rorate is read. I am sure good has and will come of it. Thanks to NC and all those responsible.

I am so happy for you Rorate!! You men do excellent work for the greater glory of God and the good of all His Church. Hopefully there will be an English translation soon as I can't read Italian.

NIANTIC said...

This truly is fantastic news. I am very glad for you, NC, and all other contributors. Keep up your excellent work and may God grant all of you many blessings!

I'm new to Tradition and this blog. Of the great number of sites available, I like Rorate above all. Congratulations - it seems well earned.

And thank you for providing this information to me and all.
