Suggestions to make a diverse College of Cardinals work

With the exception of the two consistories held by Pope John XXIII in 1958 and 1959, every creation of new cardinals since Pope Pius XII has decreased the percentage of Italian members of the College of Cardinals while internationalizing it. (John XXIII’s first consistory actually increased the Italian membership to 40 percent of an expanded College.) 

Michelle Wolf ’s display of power and the throwaway culture

Last month at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Michelle Wolf, who I’m told is a comedian, regaled the black-tie and sequin-gowned crowd with her “jokes.” Almost all were in extremely bad taste and/or wildly offensive, but one has become accustomed to that sort of coarseness in the comedy clubs and even on mainstream television.

Home-cooked effort turns into large event for pregnancy services

Every March, Rose and Bernie Wilson cook up a big brunch.
Usually the meal, for women only and in recent years numbering about 120 guests, has a St. Patrick’s theme: maybe some Irish stew in a bread bowl or a shepherd’s pie, maybe a soup with corned beef. Sometimes the foods are just green.
