This morning came the heart-wrenching news that he is having difficulty breathing. He's being transported to Egleston this morning for what my son was told will be a procedure similar to an angioplasty.

    ROME ó Just when you think you have Pope Francis figured out, he surprises you.

When he recently removed US Cardinal Raymond Burke from a senior Vatican job, many observers concluded that Francis simply didnít want such a strong conservative on his team. Yet heís now handed over the Congregation for Divine...
