    Only in Chicago: How the Rod Blagojevich Scandal Engulfed Illinois; Embroiled Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and Jesse Jackson, Jr.; and Enthralled the Nation. Natasha Korecki's book raises the question of whether Jesse Jackson Jr., the congressman son of the famed civil rights leader, plotted to arrange a pardon for Blagojevich from President Barack Obama. It was the fall of 2008 and the highest law enforcement agent in the country headed to the Windy City. Sensitive wiretaps were up and FBI agents were covertly recording what could turn out to be a spectacular public corruption case. Chicago agents were working lengthy...

    “Of course, the Gebirgsschüzen (Territorial Marksmen), whom I was only able to hear in the distance, deserve special thanks, because I am an honorary ‘Schütze,’ (marksman) even though I was once a mediocre Schütze." — Pope Benedict XVI, Bavarian Evening, Castel Gandolfo, August 3, 2012. “Now, as we ‘thank you,’ I can only impart my blessing to you, but let us first sing the Angelus together, and if we can the ‘Andachtsjodler’ (a hymn in the form of a yodel).” — Pope Benedict XVI, Last Words in German at the Bavarian Evening. The present pope, we know, is a man...

    OXFORD, January 4, 2008 ( - The quintuplets of a Russian couple were born in the UK after doctors in Russia denied them care unless they aborted some of them. Dimitri and Varvara Artamkin, both Russian natives, gave birth to five girls at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford last month. Each of the babies now weighs 3 pounds 3 ounces, and they have been separated since birth so they can undergo incubation in two hospitals. Dmitri, a mathematics professor, says that the children are each a gift from God. "We believe God has given them to us as...

    Elizabeth Edwards, wife of White House hopeful John Edwards, apologized to Sen. Hillary Clinton after saying her choices in life have made her happier than the senator, a Clinton aide said Friday. Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson said Elizabeth Edwards called the New York Democrat on Friday night just after she finished a debate in Rochester, N.Y., against Republican challenger John Spencer. "Elizabeth Edwards called her and apologized," Wolfson said. "They had a good conversation." Wolfson said the two spoke only for a couple of minutes. "The senator thanked her for the call and wished her well on her book tour,"...
  • Bisbee group protests Bush speech with 'joyful noise' (Nut Jobs on the March)

    BISBEE — Not everybody was listening to President Bush’s State of the Union speech Tuesday night. In Bisbee’s Goar Park, a group of about 50 anti-Bush protesters “made a joyful noise to drown out Bush’s lies,” according to organizer Mary Elinor “Walking Mary” Adams, 65. The festive din poured up Brewery Gulch. Children joined in the noisy chorus. Coffee and refreshments were served. “Today, I’m with the people who speak the truth,” Adams said as her friend Beverly “Bobo” Quick, 60, danced nearby, smacking a tambourine on hip and hand. Local jewelry maker Joe Hogan, 70, wearing a Tibetan hat,...
  • Catholic Caucus: The Holy Rosary

    In Sacred ScriptureHow To PrayThe Mysteries:JoyfulLuminousSorrowfulGloriousHome  The Holy Rosary The rosary probably began as a practice by the laity to imitate the monastic Divine Office (Breviary or Liturgy of the Hours), during the course of which the monks daily prayed the 150 Psalms. The laity, many of whom could not read, substituted 50, or even 150, Ave Marias (Hail Marys) for the Psalms. This prayer, at least the first half of it so directly biblically, seems to date from as early as the 2nd century, as ancient graffiti at Christian sites has suggested. Sometimes a cord with knots on it...
  • Filipino Gays Accuse Catholic Church Of 'Fanning' Homophobia

    23 January, 2003 The Filipino gay community has accused the Roman Catholic Church of 'fanning' the flames of homophobia after they were excluded from an international conference on the role of families in Manila. The Filipino gay community was angry at a statement made by Manila Archbishop Jaime Cardinal Sin that Christian family values were being eroded by advocates of gay marriage, as well as technology and divorce, reported Agence France-Presse. Oscar Atadero, a spokesman for Progay Philippines, said Sin's attack on homosexuality was totally uncalled for. Atadero likened Christan gays to "Jesus outside the gates" and said that in...

    The Fire of Joy ^ | 00/00/00 | Paul Turks
    St. Philip Neri at the High Altar (from The Fire of Joy, Paul Türks) When Philip became a priest, the Council of Trent had been meeting for six years. One of its chief and necessary tasks was the reform of the clergy. Jesuits had returned from missionary journeys in Italy with shocking reports. There were priests who had purchased their offices with a gift to the bishop, and who then mumbled an unintelligible gibberish at the altar instead of Latin. The morals of Roman priests were the subject of jokes all over Europe. In Rome itself priests rarely wore...
