Larry Cahill of the University of California-Irvine on researching the side-effects of oral contraceptives:

You might think after 50 years and hundreds of millions of women taking various incarnations of the pill, there would be a large and cohesive and impressive body of evidence on it, but there’s next to nothing.

British Cardinal Vincent Nichols on hopes for the Synod of Bishops:

God's mercy is misunderstood if it is taken as something which enables us to overlook those commandments or somehow imagine that we are excused [from] their calling. Mercy enables us to start out again. It does not enable us to stop where we are, comfortable in a sense of being accepted just as we are.

Bosnian Cardinal Vinko Puljic on Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to Bosnia:

Medjugorje has nothing to do with this visit.
