Our show notes today are briefer than usual because our usual transcriptionist, Dom Bettinelli, and his wife Melanie were blessed with a newborn baby girl, Lucia Rose this afternoon! We all thank God for this beautiful new addition to our radio family. May He bless her with His grace and with good health for years to come.

Fr Robert Oliver was appointed by the Holy Father at the end of last month to a new post as the Promoter of Justice in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
This new post is similar to a prosecuting attorney in a civil court, and oversees monitoring and investigating cases of priests accused of sex abuse among other cases.
Fr Oliver is a member of the Brotherhood of Hope and succeeds Auxiliary Bishop Charles Scicluna of Malta.
Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley announced Dec. 28 that Pope Benedict XVI has conferred the Title of Prelate of Honor on the Very Reverend Arthur M. Coyle, V. E.
This honor, the second of three ranks of monsignor within the Church, recognizes Monsignor Coyle’s achievements during the course of thirty-five years of ordained ministry.
