Furthermore, read about the Holy Father being saddened by the "death of Paul Joseph Pham Dinh Tung, archbishop emeritus of Hanoi."

Lastly, according to CNA, the "Render Unto Caesar" Archbishop of Denver, Charles Chaput, gave a spellbinding discourse at the Univ. of Toronto.

"President Obama is a man of intelligence and some remarkable gifts. He has a great ability to inspire, as we saw from his very popular visit to Canada just this past week. But whatever his strengths, there’s no way to reinvent his record on abortion and related issues with rosy marketing about unity, hope and change. Of course, that can change. Some things really do change when a person reaches the White House. Power ennobles some men. It diminishes others. Bad policy ideas can be improved. Good policy ideas can find a way to flourish. But as Catholics, we at least need to be honest with ourselves and each other about the political facts we start with."

"[A] spirit of adulation bordering on servility already exists among some of the same Democratic-friendly Catholic writers, scholars, editors and activists who once accused pro-lifers of being too cozy with Republicans. It turns out that Caesar is an equal opportunity employer."
