As President of the Prefecture for Economic Affairs of the Holy See and the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State, Cardinal Edmund Szoka has rescued the Church from the throes of debt

    We continue with this special series introducing you to the Princes of the Church. Our one-hundred-thirty-sixth red-hat we feature, in alphabetical order, is the 72 year-old American-born prelate Cardinal Edmund C. Szoka formerly of Michigan who the Holy Father plucked from the Archdiocese of Detroit as their shepherd to help bale the Holy See out of the red. This he has done over the nine plus years working in the curia. He was elevated to the cardinalate by Pope John Paul II during the Consistory of June 18, 1988. For more on Cardinal Edmund C. Szoka, click on COLLEGE OF CARDINALS COLLECTION

Even as "Toy Story 2" starts to lose its appeal, it remains on top in movie-goers toy chest

Top Ten Films for the second week of December

   Even though the numbers dropped off drastically from last week's phenomenal eighty million opening week, just as interest for a new toy wanes after some use, "Toy Story 2" still managed to cling to the top spot by only $200,000 over runner-up "The Green Mile" whose word-of-mouth promotion after you see it should keep it in the upper echelons at least until Jim Carrey's "Man in the Moon" debuts next week. Other holiday movies with no holiday theme are scheduled for release and there is no clear-cut winner among them but if more dogs like "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo" are in the offing, we're in trouble, folks.
