Como a muchas personas, me sorprendió inicialmente escuchar la noticia de que Benedicto XVI iba a viajar a México pero no visitaría la Basílica de Guadalupe en la Ciudad de México. La visita a la Basílica era cosa segura en los viajes de Juan Pablo II a México.
It can seem to most parents that the first complete sentence their little darling says is “That’s not fair!”
It’s a cry moms and dads hear early and often and, despite knowing that life is not fair, they may attempt to make their children’s lives equal.
But they can’t.
In the words of another commentator, “As is more and more obvious, ObamaCare has nothing to do with controlling healthcare costs. It has everything to do with government control. It’s time to admit a mistake, repeal the law, and look at market-based ways to control health care costs.”
Did you set any meaningful goals for 2012? I don’t mean trite resolutions that are discarded by Epiphany; I mean goals that ultimately move you forward on your path to sainthood.

UST contest to engineer peace
Once I met a woman who had worked for years in fashion and modeling. Unsurprisingly, she was strikingly attractive. She was accompanied by her teenage daughter who, by contrast, was rather unremarkable to look at, maybe even a plain-Jane. After spending time with them, I began to sense that the mother, whose life had largely revolved around her appearance, seemed to look down on her daughter, perhaps unconsciously, because of her average appearance. Her daughter seemed aware of this lack of maternal acceptance, and seemed troubled and uncomfortable as she tried to compensate and please her mom in other ways.
