Mrs. Clinton Meets Our Lady of Guadalupe

This is a picture of Mrs. Hillary Clinton, the new U.S. Secretary of State, during her visit to Mexico City, being "introduced" to the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe by Msgr. Diego Monroy Ponce, the rector of the Basilica.

Caption time! And to make it more interesting for all of you, I will send a free, personally inscribed copy of my book 150 Bible Verses Every Catholic Should Know to the person who posts in the comments section of this post on this blog my favorite caption for this picture.

This contest will end on Monday, March 30th at 5:00 p.m. ET. I will notify the winner via e-mail and arrange to send the book to him or her straight away, and I will announce and post the winning caption for posterity, as well as the runners up. Please note that I will have the final, unappealable word on who wins.

Have fun, everyone. Happy captioning.

How the Catholic Church Can LOSE the Culture War

An explosive set of new directives issued from Low Command (a.k.a. Hell) was recently intercepted behind enemy lines by an ace Envoy operative, whom we can identify only as “Peter Kreeft.” Our operative was able to spirit these devilish marching orders back to HQ, and we reproduce them here for you verbatim, so you can know what to expect from those on the other side of the gates of hell.

As an addendum, our agent “Kreeft” has drawn up a list of important countermeasures to be implemented immediately by all agents of the King. Needless to say, High Command (a.k.a. Heaven) has authorized these directives. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to ensure that this dossier is delivered intact to all friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, and total strangers within your network. This Envoy article will not self-destruct in five seconds. So, pass it around. Okay?
