IVF • "Artificial embryos" • St. Joseph's name in the Canon? • The "restored" rites of Holy Week

Caution: some topics may not be appropriate for children.

IVF-conceived embryos are human beings: Alabama State Supreme Court - a truly Catholic decision! Trump decries the ruling, Republicans move to negate it. Do "artificial embryos" have souls? Resisting an abortion? Irish vote firmly to protect family and motherhood in their Constitution. Miraculous medals and St Benedict medals found in ballot boxes. What are"dry Masses"? Saint Joseph's name in the Canon of the Mass? Monks and marriages: converting barbarians. The ruinous "restored" rites of Holy Week.
