Pope Francis announced changes in the influential Vatican office that evaluates and nominates candidates for bishop around the world.

Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington was appointed Monday to the Congregation for Bishops. The pope also reconfirmed Cardinal William Levada, the former archbishop of San Francisco and former head of the Vatican’s orthodoxy watchdog office.

Some members of the congregation were not reconfirmed. Cardinal Raymond Burke will no longer serve in the office. The former St. Louis archbishop had been a member for several years.

Burke drew attention in the U.S. in 2004 when he said he would deny Communion to Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, a Roman Catholic who supports abortion rights.

FLORIDA – ‘the Chicken Church’

1

A congregation in Florida is crying fowl after passersby realized that its church looks exactly like a chicken.

God works in mysterious ways, but not this one, according to an employee at Church By The Sea in Madeira Beach. “We’re not fond of it being called the ‘Chicken Church,'” she said.

“It’s attracting people to us for all the wrong reasons. I don’t think they’re attracted to come in and worship, I think they’re making fun of it.”

OK, but it looks like a chicken.
