Things to Keep an Eye On

The upcoming World Meeting of Families, in Valencia, Spain, is supposedly going to be quite the to-do. Lots of preparations have led up to this. First, there's the mysterious document that was written, reported on, but still not made available in any language convenient for non-Europeans to read. Secondly, there's the recent hullabaloo over embryonic stem-cell destruction being excommunicable. (See Jimmy Akin for more on this.)

And now, if the chatter is anything reliable, we're told that it might be good to keep an eye on the liturgical celebrations at this event. There have been rumors going around about Benedict sitting the Liturgy planners down and giving them a talking to about what "cultural" elements might not be appropriate for the liturgical example he wants to set. So, we'll see whether the talks were real, and if they've had any effect.

Another thing to keep an eye on, and pray much about, is in the field of world events. North Korea's president Kim, apparently bitter over his inability to style his hair in any normal fashion, has begun throwing long-range ballistic missiles about. America doesn't normally take too kindly to that sort of thing. So, let's keep this one on the intention list for a bit.
