This short book is boiled down from an interesting and at times incendiary interview of Cardinal Raymond Burke by French author Guillaume d’Alançon. Interesting in that it offers insight into the thoughts of a distinguished and highly influential Churchman. Incendiary in that it often seems d’Alançon is seeking to juxtapose the thought of Burke with that of Pope Francis in a way that may (and possibly seeks to) inflame divisions within the Church.

On Sept. 4, Pope Francis canonized Teresa of Caluctta in St. Peter's Square at the vatican. Below are a collection of stories The Catholic Register's coverage of Mother Teresa and her road to sainthood.
