Is this too much 'Inside Baseball' for you?
Attorney Michael Gaynor is critical of Bill Donohue
Much to my surprise and disappointment, Mr. Donohue did not take the opportunity to support Mr. Balestrieri and instead told Mr. Arroyo and his audience on The World Over With Raymond Arroyo's August 26, 2005 program that there was much merit to Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's reluctance to have confrontation at the Communion rail.Marc A. Balestrieri was fired from his job in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for bringing a canonical case of excommunication against Senator John Kerry and started a web site De Fide to draw attention to the case.
You wouldn't expect Bill to denounce Cardinal McCarrick as a coward, would you?

Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli)
I'm helping to edit his article in the Wikipedia
I've removed from the text that he was named venerable or a Servant of God.
I wasn't able to find any online reference to it or in recently published biographies of the Pope. I think people confused him with Pope Pius XI (Giovanni Ferretti) who was beatified in 2000.
So if you can verify that Pope Pius XII was named by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to be a Servant of God or venerable, please let me know.
Also, if you know of maintained lists of the Servants of God, please let me know.
