For the record I like the new pope, but I also liked and admired Benedict XVI very much. Unlike JPII, one does not need to be a saint, a religious mystic or an intellectual genius to understand his writings, which is fortunate as I am very far from any one of those.
I hear ya...I very much preferred the style and writings (when it comes to ability to easily understand) of BXVI as opposed to JPII. BXVI's writings on Christ (several books) were wonderful! I really liked Spe Salvi ...I recommended it to a few Protestant friends who also enjoyed it.

SSPV are considered sedes (sedevacantists). Layity are actually allowed to attend SSPX Masses provided they do so out of a desire to be involved in Latin Mass and not in order to be disobedient. I was very hopeful when BXVI was pope that they would fully reconcile...they had a few talks and came pretty close...they did make some ground up at least.

By the way if you have not read Louis De Wohl's books on various lives of saints you MUST. The one on St Catherine of Siena is excellent!

Pope's New Year message centered on solidarity and compassion for others

I usually go to a local church on Epiphany to hear choral evensong, but instead it seems they are doing Compline - can anyone advise what Compline is?!

And he came out and said it's fine for women to breastfeed their babies at church. Either of the 2 previous popes would have fallen into a faint at the sight of a woman's breast

Blessed John Paul II as Archbishop of Krakow wrote an excellent book that espoused-among other things-a woman's right to experience her own orgasm during the sex act.("Love and Responsibility" 1963)

I doubt very much that Wojtyla would have fainted at the sight of the female breast. In fact I don't think Pope Benedict would either.

As far as breastfeeding in church...why would anyone want or even need to? Even most small churches have a ladies room or a downstairs area where that could be done.

BTW...there is nothing at all "rebellious" about baptizing the children of couples who are not married. Most priests realize that it is cruel and irrational to deprive innocent babies of the Sacrament through no fault of their own. The problem comes when people demand baptism for their children as a purely empty, cultural tradition with no intention of raising them in the Faith. Then the priest can and should refuse to do it.

No quite true since as I recall the late pope JPII traveled extensively and I seem to remember he was in a country where women are topless (tribal) and he was present at the event. No shock and/or outrage.

I doubt BXVI would of expressed any shock either should he have been in a similar situation.

Visiting a tribe somewhere is not the same as in a Church, let alone the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. I think if some woman had whipped out their lactating booby in the Vatican in front of JP or B they would have been horrified.
