Pope Benedict 16 represents the very essence of the Catholic Church that holds me and counsels me, a vast and profound study of the faith. This body of knowledge is almost unique in its depth and extent. While the temporal world seeks to answer the mysteries of the universe, this spiritual study seeks to understand the much larger subject, where that universe exists. I will miss his scholarship and erudition. God Bless him and his successor.

About Your Money: In the New Economy
The financial crisis of 2008 has ushered in a new facet of the “New Economy.” Whatever you say about the origins and course of this financial crisis, this new dramatic development will be a major influence in our economic future. I will discuss the financial crisis and where it has led us. I will then look at how this “New Economy” will affect your job prospects, investment strategies, retirement plans, personal finance. We are in an entirely new phase of our economic progress reinforced by a new administration coming into office. It will be exciting to some and of concern to others. But we all must understand it and use it to our advantage. — Leo Cecchini (Ethiopia 1962–64)
