COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Major thoroughfares backed up all day on Wednesday in front of this city’s five Chick-fil-A locations. The scene played out in cities throughout the country, as people who respect marriage as an institution between one man and one woman came out to support the embattled president of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, who came under attack for expressing his support of traditional marriage in the Baptist Press.

“This is amazing,” said Jackie Walls, marketing director for a Colorado Springs Chick-fil-A, as she helped manage traffic and took orders from customers waiting in the drive-through line. “People started showing up in droves at about 9am, and it has not slowed down....READ MORE

Pope Benedict XVI has concluded the third and final volume of Jesus of Nazareth dedicated to the Gospels relating to Jesus’s childhood, and a new encyclical may follow it, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state, said last night.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a Mass he celebrated in the parish of Introd, a village in the Valle d’Aosta region of the northern Italian Alps, where he is on vacation, the cardinal said the book would be “a great gift for the Year of Faith,” which begins in October.

“We will read the third book by Benedict XVI avidly and with great relish,” he predicted, according to a report by Vatican Radio.

The Vatican confirmed the news in...READ MORE

The course of the clash between the Vatican and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) was probably set four years ago when Bishop Leonard Blair of Toledo, Ohio, began the study that led to the critical doctrinal assessment from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF).

In a series of exchanges, Bishop Blair requested information on educational materials prepared by the LCWR and speakers at its annual assemblies.

Areas of concern included the formation of religious, the role of religious in the Church, abortion, ordination of women, homosexual activity and contraception. It was apparent that the LCWR and its invited speakers were generally either not...READ MORE

Friday afternoon, aka the “Friday News Dump,” is the time when folks in the United States release news they don’t want anyone to notice.

This is a time-honored tradition inside the Beltway, when agencies under siege and beleaguered politicians announce their mea culpas or publish their email trails.

It is rare for courts to play politics with the release of their decisions and opinions, and there is no reason to think that U.S. District Court Judge John Kane of Colorado intended to bury the result of Newland v. Sebelius July 27.

Pope: St. Alphonsus Liguori Teaches Us About Prayer (2239)

The Holy Father spoke about the saint on his feast day, Aug. 1.

Pope Benedict XVI praised the 18th-century Italian St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori for reminding Christians of the key to heaven: prayer.

“St. Alphonsus reminds us that the relationship with God is essential in life and that only with a daily personal prayer and participation in the sacraments can the Divine presence that directs, illuminates and makes safe and peaceful our path, even in the midst of difficulties and dangers, grow in us,” said the Pope during his general audience address Aug. 1.

Speaking to thousands of pilgrims gathered in the town of Castel Gandolfo’s main square, the Pope marked today’s feast day of St. Alphonsus by meditating on what the founder of the Redemptorist...READ MORE
