Grab bag

 Here are some interesting stories from the web:

The BBC reported on a new Catholic seminary in Cuba.  It's the first seminary opened since the revolution of 1959.  Unfamiliar with the history of the Catholic Church in Cuba?  So am I.  Wikipedia provides a small description of the history which helps provide some background to understand why this new seminary is BBC newsworthy. 

Forbes has come out with their list of the World's Most Powerful People.  They ranked Pope Benedict XVI as the 5th most powerful person.  To see the full list, click here.

The Catholic Register posted an article about the terrorist attack at a Catholic cathedral in Iraq.  There's also a story about Iraqi refugee sponsorship in Canada on The B.C. Catholic website.  If you are interested in the situation of Iraqi Christians, take a look at the CNEWA site.
