4:00 – Fr. Joseph Langford, MC: RIP
Father Joseph Langford, who, together with Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, founded the Missionaries of Charity Fathers, has died in Tijuana following a yearlong struggle with cancer. He was 59. In 1979, Father Langford sought Blessed Teresa’s approval for the incorporation of priests into the charism of the Missionaries of Charity. After a year of discernment, she agreed, and the Priest Co-Workers, later named the Corpus Christi Movement for Priests, began. In 1984, the movement became a religious institute and was renamed the Missionaries of Charity Fathers. We play portions of an interview Al did with Fr. Langford when he wrote the book “Mother Teresa: In the Shadow of Our Lady”
4:20 – Don’t Ask / Don’t Tell: On Again / Off Again
A federal appeals court yesterday granted the Obama administration’s emergency motion for a temporary stay of a worldwide injunction barring enforcement of "don't ask, don't tell," the military's ban on openly gay service members. The 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals provided no reason for its action other than "to provide this court with an opportunity to consider fully the issues presented." This just two days after the military began admitting open homosexuals at recruiting centers around the country. Here to help us sort out this mess is Eugene Milhizer of Ave Maria Law School.
