The Vatican is reportedly investigating a possible miracle attributed to Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, a Native American convert to Catholicism.

Cardinal Camillio Ruini has disclosed that members of the College of Cardinals pushed for the fast-track beatification of John Paul II during the conclave to elect his successor.

The beatification of John Paul II on Sunday will be filmed in 3D.

George Weigel responds to critics of the beatification.

Russell Shaw says that a new Catholic subculture is visibly emerging in the United States.

Deal Hudson and Matt Smith predict that Catholic voters will abandon Barack Obama in the 2012 US presidential election.

And Fr John Zuhlsdorf considers whether it’s acceptable to punch vandals in church.

    Re. 2nd item, viz. Cardinal Camillio Ruini has disclosed that members of the College of Cardinals pushed for the fast-track beatification of John Paul II during the conclave to elect his successor.
    To have raised such a petition at a conclave would have been illegal per conclave rules, in particular clause 82 of John Paul II’s 1996 Universi Dominci Gregis Apostolic Constitution that governed the 2005 conclave!
    This post, by me, explains this further: http://popes-and-papacy.com/wordpress/?p=2839
