    [Catholic Caucus] Francis’s Silence, Ratzinger's Tears, and That Never-Published Statement of His What is most striking in the post-synodal apostolic exhortation “Querida Amazonia,” made public today, February 12 2020, is its total silence on the most anticipated and controversial issue: the ordination of married men.Not even the word “celibacy” appears in it. Pope Francis desires “to configure ministry in such a way that it is at the service of a more frequent celebration of the Eucharist, even in the remotest and most isolated communities” (no. 86). But he reiterates (no. 88) that only the ordained priest can celebrate the Eucharist,...

    Daily Mail ^ | February 7, 2020 (updated) | Damian Thompson
    Two Popes, an Oscar race and an unholy row >snip< Francis is thinking of ordaining married priests. Benedict is horrified by the idea.And when Benedict's name appeared as the co-author of a book that passionately defends the celibate priesthood, Francis forced the frail older man to withdraw his endorsement.The resulting row between allies of the liberal Argentine pope and his conservative Bavarian predecessor kept The Two Popes in the headlines just as members of the Academy were filling out their ballot papers.And the scandal was given fresh impetus this week when it emerged that Francis had stripped the head of...

    An orangutan named Sandra, at the center of a landmark ruling in Argentina that said she is a "non-human person" entitled to some of the same rights as humans, is making her way to a Florida sanctuary where great apes enjoy those privileges without benefit of a court order. Once Sandra is there, the 33-year-old orangutan will have the company of others in her species for the first time in many years. Sandra left her solitary world at a zoo in Buenos Aires in late September and is currently in Kansas, where she'll remain in quarantine until she's cleared to...

    The quiet heartbreak and pain of infertility is well known to many evangelicals, whose aspirations to have a child have been frustrated for reasons they cannot understand or control. It is frequently a secret burden that couples carry, which only emerges into the open as they reveal their struggles to family, friends, and doctors. The weight of infertility and the value of children has increasingly prompted infertile couples to pursue procreation by every means possible: artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, and even surrogacy have all found their way into evangelical communities. Yet while evangelicals have become increasingly aware of the...

    Potential Future Pope Condemns Sri Lanka Attacks as ‘Barbaric Islamist Violence’ It is a rare display of honesty from a high ranking Catholic official. A Catholic cardinal considered by many to be a candidate to become the next Pope has condemned the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka as “barbaric Islamist violence” after at least 290 Christians were murdered during worship on Easter Sunday. Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea condemned the attacks in Sri Lanka on Twitter, writing that it illustrates “how the followers of Christ are all over the world the victims of wild and foolish deeds,” and adding, “I...

    Christians Suffer Silently Cdl. Sarah: 'We can no longer be silent' As terrorist attacks on Christians become commonplace, the Vatican's top liturgist is urging Catholics to no longer keep silent. Government officials in Montreal jettisoned the crucifix from City Hall and witnessed an attack on a Catholic priest during Mass one day later. Fifty Christians were also recently murdered in Nigeria, with Islamic terrorist attacks seeming to become the norm in France and the Philippines. Foreseeing the onslaught of such violence, Cdl. Robert Sarah is calling for Catholics to suffer in silence no longer. During a homily on the feast of Mary, Mother of the Church...

    Sarah Palin was spotted at the Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets game on Monday, but that's not all she did during her Texas jaunt. The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate visited daughter Bristol and grandson Tripp in Austin, where they live. Palin and Tripp made the drive to watch the Spurs in action. In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News, the former Alaska governor raved about watching Gregg Popovich's coaching and how "fun" watching the team regroup is. In addition to witnessing the Spurs' 104-103 nail-biter win, she also posted a series of photos to prove "God blessed Texas."...

    As Sarah Palin begins what at least appears to be a testing—if not a parting—of the waters in anticipation of a potential presidential run, she has waded into the murky stuff that is the Israel/Palestine quagmire. One of the stops on her “Going Rogue” book promotional tour last week was ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Noting that the Obama administration doesn’t want Israel to build any more settlements on what it considers Palestinian territory, interviewer Barbara Walters asked the former Alaska governor/Vice Presidential candidate for her view. Palin’s response. The politician responded, “I disagree with the Obama administration on that. I...

    The past few weeks have been 'brutal' on many people. So what was going on? To use the baseball analogy, the Democrats were a like a team so desparate that they threw a high tight 'fastball' at the head of each hitter on the Republican side -- for every batter and for every inning. Normally, that might be done once or maybe twice in a game to send a message to the other team. Especially a high and tight fastball to the hitter on the other side who did the most damage. It is meant to intimidate the other side....
