Sadly, I am elsewhere occupied until the evening.
In the meantime, however, here’s the topics I would blog about at length simply linked:
- CNS: Pope OKs stricter norms for mandatory feast days in church calendar
- Against the Grain has excerpts from John Allen’s Brazil coverage
- Dom has a thorough analysis of Pope Benedict’s address to Brazilian bishops
- Most the texts from the Pope’s trip are now up at the Vatican website
- CWNews: Tough papal challenge for Brazilian bishops // Family Day rally in Rome dwarfs expectations //Faith, not politics, will save Latin America: Pope
- Rocco takes a look at Bertone and visions, as well as Bertone visions.
And finally, what day would be complete without some Motu mania?
