of a conversation with the President of the United States.’

mini-state – if not the actual state – in Helmand,” Auliya Atrafi, a

rejected the papal appointment of their bishop to the diocese of Ahiara,

total obedience to the Pope,” and “must be willing to accept the Bishop
whom the Pope sends and has appointed.”

US revelation that ISIS was working to develop explosive devices that
resembled laptop computer batteries and easily evaded airport screening
methods. The information on ISIS terror operations was said to have in
part prompted the Trump administration’s March travel ban on several
Muslim-majority countries, and was part of classified intelligence the

He served as Archbishop of Washington, D.C.(imagine that) from 2001 to
2006, and was elevated to the cardinalate in 2001. In Catholic theology,
