    “Praise and glory be to thee, O holy Trinity, who hast brought us all to this day’s solemnity. Praise be to thee also, O holy Mother of God, scepter of the orthodox faith: through thee the Cross triumphs, and man is called back to heaven; through thee the idols are overthrown, and the nations are brought to repentance.” Such words as these, which the Church borrows from her doctors to close the bright Octave, were doubtless sung in prophecy by the angels around the new-born babe Mary. And such, in the light of the ages since elapsed, must needs...

    Red Greater Double “THROUGH THEE the precious Cross is honored and worshiped throughout the world.” Thus did St. Cyril of Alexandria apostrophize our Lady on the morrow of that great day, which saw her divine maternity vindicated at Ephesus. Eternal Wisdom has willed that the Octave of Mary’s birth should be honored by the celebration of this Feast of the triumph of the holy Cross. The Cross indeed is the standard of God’s armies, whereof Mary is the Queen; it is by the Cross that she crushes the serpent’s head, and wins so many victories over error, and over...

    At first, Safiya Wazir couldnt believe what she was hearing. A second later, it sunk in after a long day on her feet, Wazir, a pregnant 27-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, defeated lifelong Heights resident and four-term District 17 state incumbent Rep. Dick Patten, overcoming an opponent who said her lack of experience and status as a refugee would hurt her campaign. Instead, Wazir said those very things as well as her drive to connect with voters through doorknocking, thank-you notes and election reminders buoyed her campaign. They were very excited there was someone new running for the...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday that the Justice Department will leave no stone unturned in trying to figure out how the FBI lost five months of text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the FBI agents who exchanged anti-Trump messages while working on the Clinton and Trump investigations. We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source, Sessions said in a statement.

    A campus group at the University of California, Berkeley, invited a conservative speaker to give a talk. How did Berkeley react, the legendary home of the Free Speech Movement? Given that the talk had been planned long in advance, did opponents get a permit to assemble legally and to protest? Or, if not, did they at least share their displeasure through a peaceful demonstration, with signs and chanted slogans? Not a chance.........

    A Period Is Questioned in the Declaration of Independence Every Fourth of July, some Americans sit down to read the Declaration of Independence, reacquainting themselves with the nations founding charter exactly as it was signed by the Second Continental Congress in 1776. Or almost exactly? A scholar is now saying that the official transcript of the document produced by the National Archives and Records Administration contains a significant error smack in the middle of the sentence beginning We hold these truths to be self-evident, no less. The error, according to Danielle Allen, a professor at the Institute for Advanced...

    At least one in five patients declared brain dead and approved as organ donors by one organ donation organization, are in fact still alive and are being killed by the removal of vital organs, a lawsuit filed last week in Manhattan alleges. The suit outlines the ghoulish worst-case scenario, one that was widely dismissed as scaremongering in the early days of the development of organ transplant technology, but which is getting a second hearing amidst growing concerns that coercion and abuse are becoming increasingly common in the highly lucrative transplant business. Patrick McMahon, a nurse practitioner and Air Force combat...

    Warren Buffett has anop-ed in today's NY Times on one of his most popular themes: The rich should pay more in taxes. At first blush, his position seems noble: A rich guy says that people like him should pay more to support the commonwealth.But on closer examination, one realizes that Mr Buffett never mentions doing anything toeliminate the tax-avoidance strategies that he uses mostaggressively. In particular: 1.His company Berkshire Hathaway never pays a dividend but insteadretains allearnings. So the return on this investment is entirely in the form of capital gains. By not paying dividends, he saves his investors (including...
