For the Congregation for Bishops: On Monday, Dec. 16, Pope Francis announced changes for the Vatican Congregation for Bishops. Two Americans – Cardinals Raymond Burke and Justin Rigali – were removed from the congregation, and one, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, added. Anyone else surprised that the American joining the congregation was not Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan?

For the Packers: Please, just two wins.

For those making the transition from Advent to Christmas: May your heart be open to who and what the season offers.
