For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Archbishops Burke And Wuerl Promoted To Cardinal...Along With 22 Others

This morning it was announced that Pope Benedict XVI has promoted 20 archbishops, 1 bishop, 2 monsignori, and 1 coptic patriarch to the office of cardinal at a ceremony scheduled for November 20th.  Among those are two Americans:  Archbishop Wuerl of Washington DC and the previously posted Archbishop Raymond Burke, prelate of the Apostolic Signatura.

Congratulations to all of the new cardinals-designate, especially Archbishop Burke, whom I would very much like to see rise to the papacy some day.
