New 'Nicer Creed' to be Published by Digby Stuart Research Centre for Religion, Society and Human Flourishing

Exclusive extract from the long-awaited Nicer Creed published by the Digby Stuart Research Centre

The Digby Stuart Research Centre for Religion, Society and Human Flourishing is set to publish a new 'Nicer Creed' which will run parallel to those said in Catholic Churches on Sundays.

Prof. Tina Beattie is promoting the new Creed as part of what she has described as 'an ongoing project' to develop a new Democrasterium that, too, will run parallel to the official Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

While the official Catholic Church in England and Wales has, as yet, made no statement concerning the forthcoming publication of the Nicer Creed, the Digby Stuart Research Centre for Religion, Society and Human Flourishing is said to be promoting the new Nicer Creed to Catholics as an alternative Creed to be said by the Faithful during the Mass.

The Tablet are to include a free copy of the new Nicer Creed, in large, bold print for its readers in the new year. Prof. Tina Beattie said, "The new Nicer Creed reflects a growing sense in the Church that the archaic and ancient language and beliefs of the Catholic Church require some revision in the 21st century. We are happy to be promoting the Nicer Creed at a time when I and others play a leading role in forging a new vision of the Catholic Church for a future in which we hope it will flourish humanely and function at total ease with the modern world."

And I, in my dreadful loathing and uncharity, was hoping it was true, shame on me.

But seriously, this is brilliant. God bless!

What happened to the great Sacred Heart order?

Its founder was St Madeline Sophie Barat in 1779. She was educated by her older brother Louis, who later became a priest. On his recommendation, Father Varin, who planned to form an institute of women to teach girls, a female counterpart of the Jesuits, received her and three companions into the religious life in 1800, thus founding the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

She died in 1865. Pray for her intercession and that of the founder of Digby Stuart College, Rev Mother Mabel Digby.
