    The Francis Show in Palermo… The Blessing that Wasn’t: Francis omits “Papal” Benediction because it could offend Non-Catholics On Saturday, Sep. 15, the Francis Show made a stop in Sicily, with the “Pope” visiting the dioceses of Piazza Armerina and Palermo. As always, Francis had a lot to say, cranking out such incredible nuggets of wisdom as, “Those belonging to the mafia are not living as Christians”, and, “…those who give themselves find the meaning of life and win” (source). The Vatican web site has posted the entire program of the trip to Sicily here. One of the highlights of...

    There are five considerations that seem to me to make it very likely that Archbishop Viganò's testimony is truthful. To be sure, given how numerous and detailed are the claims he makes, it would not be surprising if he has gotten certain particulars wrong. And perhaps in his passion he has inadvertently overstated things here and there. But the main claims are probably true. I certainly do not believe he is lying. The reasons are these: The deafening silence of Pope FrancisThe apparent silence of Pope BenedictArchbishop Viganò's concern for his own place in history and his immortal soulPope Francis’s...

    Cardinal Blase Cupich speaks to NBC 5's Mary Ann Ahern about the explosive allegations of a former high-ranking church official who claims the Pope knew about charges of sexual misconduct against an American cardinal and says that cardinal was responsible for Cupich's appointment in Chicago. "The Pope has a bigger agenda," Cardinal Cupich said. "He's got to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church. We're not going to go down a rabbit hole on this."

    August 27, 2018 Dear Friends, Earlier today, on behalf of His Eminence, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, I shared the following letter and materials with priests of the Archdiocese of Washington. I thought you would find it helpful, and share the letter and materials below. Over the past two weeks, I have shared several communications with you regarding the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. As Cardinal Wuerl noted at yesterday’s Mass for Healing at the Cathedral of Saint Matthew, all must know the Church’s contrition and remorse for these grave sins. Survivors of this great betrayal by priests must know of the prayers...

    Dear Priests, Deacons, Religious and all Holy Faithful of the Diocese of Tyler, A letter (see below) by Archbishop Vigano, former Nuncio to the United States, raises grave allegations and calls for the resignation of numerous high ranking prelates including Pope Francis. Let us be clear that they are still allegations but as your shepherd I find them to be credible. Using this standard the response must be a thorough investigation similar to those conducted any time allegations are deemed to be credible. I do not have the authority to launch such an investigation but I will lend my voice...

    The British Broadcasting Corporation ^ | August 22, 2018 | Anthony Zurcher
    As the swirl of legal drama around Donald Trump grows, it will be increasingly difficult for Democrats to avoid direct questions about the "I word" - impeachment - even if the topic makes many on the left squirm with discomfort. On Tuesday Donald Trump's former personal lawyer stood in a New York courtroom and said then-candidate Trump directed him to commit campaign finance crimes. If Mr Cohen is to be believed - and his lawyer has produced an audio recording that appears to be at least partial corroboration - it draws the president closer to what is now-documented illegal activity....
