Savor the flavor of Moroccan Chicken

Last week’s WikiLeaks report that the Clinton Foundation received $12 million from King Mohammed VI of Morocco for hosting the Clinton Global Initiative International meeting, held in a five-star Marrakesh hotel, brought to my mind a really wonderful recipe — Moroccan Chicken. I received this recipe via a food chain letter many years ago. This is certainly a five-star recipe. Although it may not be worth $12 million, it sure was worth the 29 cents of postage that it cost to send.

Op-ed: Like everyone, Catholics facing tough choice on Election Day

Back in 2008, in the weeks leading up to the Obama-McCain presidential election, two young men visited me in Denver. They were from Catholics United, a group describing itself as committed to social justice issues. They voiced great concern at the manipulative skill of Catholic agents for the Republican Party. And they hoped my brother bishops and I would resist identifying the Church with single-issue and partisan (read: abortion) politics.
