Trying to call up yesterday's CWN headlines, I accidentally reached the stories from this date last year, and guess what I found: Cardinal Sodano was at the UN, endorsing a big new campaign to eliminate world poverty.

But wait, you might say: Didn't Cardinal Sodano go to the UN to endorse a big new campaign against poverty this year-- in fact, this week?

Yes, indeed; maybe it's going to be an annual event, to be set on the non-liturgical calendar.

But while I looked through the year-old headlines, I noticed that it was about this time, last year, that Cardinal McCarrick's committee was promising a report on how bishops should deal with pro-abortion Catholic politicians.

Which should we expect to see first: the completed report from the McCarrick committee, or another headline about Cardinal Sodano encouraging the UN to abolish poverty?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Answer: Another headline about Cdl. Sodano & the poor. I meana, New Yorka does hava some of da finest restaurantes in all of da world, y'know. (Now, don't get me wrong here, we all enjoy a fine dining experience on special occasions, don't we? But we don't have to go to NYCity for the dining experience.) As for Cdl. "just call me Teddy" McCarrick, we continue our vigil, fervently praying for the Holy Father to accept the retirement of a cardinal who has lied & prayed in the name of Allah.

    Cardinal McCarrick has submitted his resignation, Rome has yet to accept it.

    We will always have the poor...but will we always have Sodano?

    Allah The Merciful and Compassionate willing, poverty WILL be abolished before we ever see anything out of McCarrick's phantom committee.
