Oh dear...hopefully he died in a state of grace.

"MECHELEN, Belgium (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Godfried Danneels, 85, former head of the Mechelen-Brussels archdiocese in Belgium, has died.

The 85-year-old retired cardinal died Thursday morning. The current archbishop of Mechelen and Brussels, Cdl. Jozef De Kesel, announced Cdl. Danneels' passing, saying, "We continue to thank him gratefully. May he rest in God's peace."

Danneels was part of a coalition of left-leaning Church leaders known as the St. Gallen Mafia — so named after their meeting place in St. Gallen, Switzerland. "

Interesting. His age and history are indicators of how long his brand of 'heresy' has been pushed around the Church. No wonder we have so many problems. It has indeed, been many decades of formation. I pray his soul is at Peace with Our Savior.

A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy

St Gallen used to be one of the best places for Catholic vestments. Back in the early 20th century this city produced stunning embroidery at various houses. Today to find a Fraefel vestment or something from St Gallen from that time means top quality stuff.

Sad that the city will now be know for something else.
