On the Use of the Name of God, Pope Benedict teaches

When one of my kids was very young, he asked why people were saying "yah, hey" at Mass. Maybe that won't happen to anyone else on the south side of Milwaukee again. Paul Zalonski reported yesterday at Communio on a recent Vatican directive, beginning

This might also give Bishop Sklba another reason to denounce Popeye.
