- 12/19/16 - Vatican Radio on full communion with other "Churches." "Since Pope John Paul II published his encyclical on Christian unity, ‘Ut Unum Sint’, he notes how many partners in dialogue have been trying to re-evaluate how the Petrine ministry can serve the whole Church, while not renouncing the uniqueness of that role." And a few Bears lately. Some clappy happy goofball priest in the sort interview that manages to be both bland and offensive at the same time.
- 12/18/16 - As you probably know, the blood of St. Januarius did not liquefy. The Bear does not want to be superstitious about it, but the timing is interesting given the widening breach in the Church caused by Francis trying to create a Church of the world, and for the world. The Bear could not be more pessimistic, but that is a natural reaction when a Bear is faced with a problem out of the reach of his crushing jaws and rending claws.
- 12/18/16 - Judging Angels is in its last three hours of story time. A lot can happen in three hours.
- 12/18/16 - The Bear noticed the silly TV show Lucifer got cancelled. Chance on Hulu starring Hugh Laurie has proved better than the Bear's initial skepticism. On the other hand, the wheels have come off of Amazon's The Man in the High Castle. Cool imagery of a Nazified America can only take you so far. The writing is simply incoherent. Timeless on NBC is a smart, funny and entertaining time travel series that does a pretty good job with history. Fortunately, all the events they have to protect are well-known to the audience. They are not going to have to intercept the Zimmerman Telegraph, for instance.
