The Washington Post has a report this morning on yesterday's congressional hearing into the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last September. There is no issue that dramatized the partisanship of Fox and MSNBC than the Benghazi attack. Fox claims there was a cover-up and Sean Hannity says it is like Watergate. At MSNBC, they mention Ben Gay more often than they do Benghazi.

"'Sentire' con la Chiesa"


The Holy Father’s address to the International Union of Superiors General was a small masterpiece. There were many aspects of his talk that warrant attention, but this morning I would like to focus on his paragraph about the ecclesial mission of consecrated life, specifically his call to “’sentire’ con la Chiesa,” to think and feel with the Church.


Here is the Zenit translation of the relevant paragraph:

Prayers Answered


Thank you to all who offered prayers for Ambrose. The vet just called and the surgery went well. Of course, we are now looking at a three month recovery, and managing limited movement, with two other dogs in the house, will be a challenge. But, at least my baby boy is coming home. Saint Francis, pray for us and for our furry friends.
