Tips for attending the old rite Mass
If you are looking for Tridentine Mass in Scotland phone up Una Voce, there are a few that the bishops allow to be discreetly publicised but they allow others so long as they are not publicised at all.
Could someone look in the code of canon law and tell me about this thing called a "private Mass"?

Petrol on the fire
A new report has appeared indicating that the injectable contraceptive Depo Provera can triple the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). This new research has sobering implications for the AIDS epidemic in Africa and our role in it. The U.S. foreign aid establishment would sooner eat ground glass than admit it, but it is very likely that our family planning programs have been aiding the spread of the HIV virus. The bottom line? As the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa rages out of control, we have been recklessly promoting and distributing drugs which make women even more vulnerable to the deadly virus. We have been pouring gasoline on a fire.

The Catholic Church: "the most rightly ordered expression in history of the one Church of Christ" - George Weigel
Here is the article.
Portugal follows Malta's lead
He said something along the lines of blowing the Dutch boat out of the water. The journalist protested that this was a little extreme, but the Maltese said "We would consider it an act of war against Maltese citizens." Why can't journalists, e.g., get their heads around this? The point, and the whole point, is whether or not you are killing people.
Anway, re Portugal, an article from a few days ago and a more recent one.

Pope Gelasius in his ninth letter (chap. 26) to the bishops of Lucania condemned
the evil practice which had been introduced of women serving the priest at the
celebration of Mass. Since this abuse had spread to the Greeks, Innocent IV
strictly forbade it in his letter to the bishop of Tusculum: "Women should not
dare to serve at the altar; they should be altogether refused this ministry." We
too have forbidden this practice in the same words in Our oft-repeated
constitution Etsi Pastoralis, sect. 6, no. 21.
Benedict XIV, enc. Allatae sunt, 1755
