It's Ronald Reagan's birthday (he'd be 96). Re-read his acceptance of the Republican nomination for President in 1980.

The Legion of Christ received its Decretum Laudis (Decree of Praise elevating it to a congregation of pontifical right) today. At their site, they have a little video up from just after Christmas when a bunch of LCs and their families attended a papal audience.
