Keep up the good work![edit]

Your recent contributions about Pius XII have been outstanding. I hope you stick around and keep contributing. Let me know if you need help with anything. Savidan 23:58, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


Thanks Savidan, I really appreciate this from you. You have done so much. Presently, I am working on a tightening of the theology, and on additional "main articles" on the persecution of the Church, Church reforms, the pontificate during the late years, and, possibly, his use of communication tools (radio, TV, movies formal, informal settings etc.) I also began filling in blanks on the encyclicals and apostolic constitutions. I hope to have all of them in blue by Pentecost and expand later, only after all his saints came marching in. -:))

Please add or subtract as you see fit. Your changes of the text were all improvements. I am a little concerned about the overall lenght of the article, and while there is still much nonsense (his doctor, nose falling off, ONE newspaper report, which is admittedly mistaken), I am hesitating to erase at this time. What do you think?

Hi, Regarding the Rosary Apostolc Letter link, please feel free to leave or delete it as you wish. It does not distract anyone and it is a nice apostolic letter. Either way is fine with me. History2007 (talk) 18:26, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

WP:DYKs[edit]

Please do not hesitate to list your articles at T:TDYK, they are truly of high quality and we should expose them more! I considered doing so for your newest Pope Pius XII and Poland, but I've decided it needs some further improvement - see my recent edit and comments on talk. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 18:36, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Re:Pope Pius XII and Poland[edit]

I would be happy to contribute with my knowledge of Polish history, but my knowledge of the Church-Polish relations is limited, and that of Pope Pious very much so. So I would very much like to tempt you to work more on the Pope Pius XIII and Poland article - if you work on the Pius angle I will try to help more with the Poland angle :) --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:02, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

As you have noted, I have left my comments on talk of that article. I will add it to my watchlist, and I will try to reply as soon as I see your replies. I will try to find and provide sources if needed for my claims, if you cannot. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:16, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Queen of Heaven[edit]

Hello- I see you do some patrolling of Queen of Heaven and thought you might be interested in a recent change there. I don't have a lot of stake in the article, but I noticed that on May 8, an anonymous editor had moved all or most of the historical info on the term around so that the Christian use is discussed first. I have the impression that the material had been chronological (old to new) before that. I haven't had time to read the versions, and this could well be an improvement, but I sensed some POV in a May 9 post on the article's talk page by a user called Xandar regarding the edit. Hence this FYI. -Eric talk 18:59, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Re: Luther's views of Mary[edit]

Hi, thanks for your kind comments. As you might have seen I came into the Luther on Mary article at the invitation of Flex. I don't agree with those on this WP who want to merge everything and eliminate everything that they do not consider newsworthy or earthshattering. I am the type of scholar, who doesn't want to dumb things down or elimate things that are factual and sourced. I take it that you have read Pelikan's Mary through the Ages, which would be a good source. I have the Lutherans and Catholics in Dialogue VIII The One Mediator. Gritsch has a good foundational essay that traces the Lutheran views of the Mother of God from Luther on. There is an excellent quotation in Grisar 6 volume biography of Luther that really extolls the Immaculate Conception. Luther as you might have guessed is not a systematic theologian, you can find things he says in one place that seem to contradict what he says in another place. What is very interesting is that a really strict conservative Lutheran theologian of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, named Franz Pieper, admitted that Lutherans must be permitted to hold to the perpetual viginity of the Mother of God, probably because Martin held it to the day of his death. Cheers and salutations--Drboisclair (talk) 16:15, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

FYI, I commented at User_talk:Drboisclair#Martin_Luther.27s_views_on_Mary. --Flex (talk/contribs) 17:39, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I have heard of Jacob Boehme; he is quite a famous Lutheran of the 17th Century. He lived in what we Lutherans call our "Age of Orthodoxy." He sounds visionary like Johann Arndt. I am glad you take an interest in the catholicity of other Christians.--Drboisclair (talk) 01:13, 4 July 2008 (UTC)


Pius XII 1942 consecration of the world[edit]

Ave! I believe it was you who have posted the English text of Ven. Pius XII's 1942 consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady in the article. Do you maybe have, or know where I can find, the original text - might be Portuguese? - because I want to translate it into Russian and would like to work with the original. Thanks. Hithlin (talk) 22:21, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for asking. The Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary to the world (with descriptive mentioning of Russia) took place on October 31, 1942. It was within the Radiomessage to the people of Portugal (in Portugese) on that day, My article uses a very good English translation The original text is in; Discorsi E Radiomessaggi Di Sua Santita Pio XII, Vol IV, Tipografia Poliglotta Vaticana , 1943, p.253. This consecration was repeated solemnly in Saint Peter Basilica on December 8, 1942, the text of which I do not have. You would find it in Acta Apostolicae Sedis, (AAS) 1942

The second consecration was made in the context of an Apostolic letter to the people of Russia, Sacro Vergente. Here are text in Latin and Italian:

  • PIUS PP. XII, Epist. apost. Sacro vergente anno de universae Russorum gentis Immaculato Mariae Cordi consecratione, [Ad universos Russiae populos], 7 iulii 1952: AAS 44(1952), pp. 505-511.
  • www.vatican.va/holy_father/pius_xii/apost_letters/documents/hf_p-xii_apl_19520707_sacro-vergente-anno_it.html

I am absulutely sure, that a Russian translation does exist somewhere, since Sacro Vergente was written to the Russian people, question is WHERE? I have some ideas and will look into it. don't even look to the slow moving Vatican web-site for this. Remember what the Pope said, when asked how many people work in the Vatican? Half of them. -:) Cheers--Ambrosius007 (talk) 19:20, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

After I've asked, a friend sent me Portuguese and Italian texts (the first from the radio message and the other from the official ceremony of Dec. 8). I think there are some differences between them and the English translation (for ex., there is no word 'schism', but rather 'Aos povos pelo erro ou pela discórdia separados,' and there may be some other, too). Sacro Vergente Anno exists in a Russian translation - for example, here. Hithlin (talk) 22:10, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the link, I'll add it to the page. The problem with the differences is notoric in Vatican documents. It is, for example, not unusual, to find different dates for the ame document in Discorsi E Radiomessaggi Di Sua Santita Pio XII. L'Osservatore Romano, and, Acta Apostolicae Sedis, (AAS). The same applies to translations. --Ambrosius007 (talk) 08:11, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Paul VI[edit]

Thanks -- glad to see we are on the same sheet of music here, and thanks for your contributions as well. In fact, it was indeed the template on social teachings that motivated the restructuring. I realized that it didn't have a proper home in the article, so I added that encyclical as a subsection, only to discover for myself that there were a number of other encyclicals, which I ended up providing highlights of as well. I think the page has been dramatically improved from what it was about a year ago.

Mass of Paul VI[edit]

Thanks again. Very nice work enhancing Paul VI -- it's much more on a par with Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI (the two popes reigning after the invention of Wikipedia). One of the things I thought was lacking with the earlier versions was the scant mention of the revised liturgy, which is one of the most notable aspects of his pontificate. LotR (talk) 17:40, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

RC Persecutions & Marian Movements[edit]

The RC Persecutions series you did is just "fantastic". And I reallly liked the NavBar with the photos. The articles are generally very educational. It seems like a forgotten topic, and should be made more public. And the page for Ignatius Kung Pin-Mei should probably get that template (as well as Dominic Tang). I came across him when I was editing She Shan Cathedral but could not find a good image of She Shan. Anyway, that series is just fantastic. And the Chinese RCs are still getting persecuted just now. But in the end Kung outlived most of his captors, and was the oldest living cardinal!

India etc.[edit]

First comments: I did not see anything on India, or elsewhere where things are really bad and Catholic priests are getting killed routinely, e.g., if you try [1] These come up:

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

So I think India, and mideast etc. deserve a section - perhaps a large one. There is more persecution there than in Russia. Thanks History2007 (talk) 22:09, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Impressive article![edit]

Its always nice to see such an extensive article such as Catholic Ecumenical Councils being created when checking the new pages :). While only having skimmed over the contents, it looks very well written and providing sufficient in depth coverage. My compliments on a fine article!

Apart from that, i would like to make a suggestion based upon the references section. As this section is kind of long, might it be an idea to close the individual references with </ref> tags, and then generating the references section with a {{reflist|2}} to generate two seperate coloms to create a bit more overview? I would be happy to do this for you, but since im not involved into editing it, i wanted to consult you about this idea before making such a change.

Kind regards, Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 18:20, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Pius IX[edit]

The Pius IX page looks very good now. And these pope pages get a lot of access, well over 300 views per day. I wonder how that can be converted to more Marian/Mariological views. For all the Mariology pages together get less access per day than just one pope. Cheers History2007 (talk) 19:58, 15 September 2008 (UTC).

Hi[edit]

Hi & welcome back. I have not done a lot on Wikipedia in November except reverting vandals. I did Roman Catholic prayers to Jesus and then got busy - if you know other prayers please add them. I am way up in the mountains now, but figured out web access. It is refreshing to be away from Bev Hills type people, have fresh clean water and air. And I am watching the markets dance to MBA-talk (spelt n-o-n-s-e-n-s-e) from up here. I guess they have eventually figured out that there is a recession... geniuses... Anyway, there was a debate on Queen of Heaven and I had to step in to avoid it getting merged with many other things. But that page does need your attention. As for funerals, there is only one way to stop them, as the line in the Wall Street movie said: get Ben Bernanke to open a funeral parlor, then people will stop dying... Cheers History2007 (talk) 21:55, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Pope Pius XII and Russia[edit]

As you appear to be the major author of the designated article, would you please explain (just to me, if you do not mind) what the letters AAS on the "Sources" section there refer to.Muscovite99 (talk) 19:07, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Also: is there any way of accessing all those encyclicals online?Muscovite99 (talk) 19:08, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
  • As you apparently know the subject quite well: did Pius XII condemn communism in general, or did he also condemn specifically Soviet Communism, or still more specifically the Soviet regime? Also what does the term "condemn" ("rejected") in the context mean? Excommunication? According to my Russian-language sources (in fact, Soviet), in 1949 he excommunicated all those adhering to communism and supporting them.Muscovite99 (talk) 19:18, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
In fact, I've now had a look at the english text of Orientales Omnes Ecclesias ([10]) and failed to find any mention of communism in there.Muscovite99 (talk) 19:39, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for being late in coming back to Wikipedia:
AAS stands for Acta Apostolicae Sedis, which is the official organ of the Vatican containing all official papal documents. some but not all encyclicas are available online at the Vatican Website in the papal archieve under Pius XII. for ex. Google Mystici Corporis or go to Wikipedia Mystici corporis and you will find the link.

RE Communism: The Vatican as in the case against Nazism, condemmed the hostile actions of communist but usually not individuals. Exceptions were individuals guilty of acts agaisnt the life and liberty of Chruch representatives who in turn were excommunicated. Cheers--Ambrosius007 (talk) 13:01, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your kind explanation. But yet, did the condemnation in this case mean excommunication. I have come across the assertions that, for instance, Fidel Castro was excommunicated. Hence, arguably, his recent interest in Orthodox Christianity.Muscovite99 (talk) 19:05, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
