    Michael Sean Winters last week wrote in-depth and scholarly pieces on the October Synod of Bishops on the family. Anybody interested in learning everything that can be known in preparation for the synod needs to read these blog posts.

    Synod on the Family

    An article by Josephine McKenna points out some contradictions as we gear up for the opening of the Synod of Bishops on the family. A conservative group of cardinals is releasing a new book that challenges Cardinal Walter Kasper's efforts to move the conversation in the direction of change.

    The facts are pretty clear, and Rana Foroohar of Time magazine does an excellent job of laying them out for us.

    The recession ended some time ago, and real growth is now back. Even unemployment is down significantly. Job growth has been relatively strong. There has also been something of a real estate recovery.

    Catholic News Agency provides a substantial list of articles relating to women in the church since the beginning of the Francis papacy. The articles are listed in a descending order of occurrence. Does any of it represent progress? It definitely represents both forward and backward steps, which is probably to be expected. Is there a gradual progression within this back-and-forth activity?

    Although Saint John Paul II emphasized the dignity of every human being, the church seemed to find little or no way to affirm that dignity. Is the Francis effect finally beginning to bear fruit in this area?

    I sat watching the 11 p.m. news as the Ebola patient from Dallas, Nina Pham, landed at the airport in Frederick, Md. She was on her way to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. Frederick is a little more than an hour from my house. Bethesda is about 20 minutes from where my sister lives in Washington, D.C.

    I was preparing my latest blog post, which was to be titled, "The Democrats still have a good shot at retaining the Senate." Let me share some of the reasons I felt this was so, even though pollsters and pundits were already giving Republicans more than a 60 percent chance of taking the Senate.

    Republicans need to gain six seats to retake the Senate. It really all hinges on a number of very close races across the country.

    Synod on the Family

    Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia is confused about the recently completed family synod in Rome. He notes that "confusion is of the devil."

    Chaput wants to clearly restate church teaching on homosexuals and marriage. I wonder how many times we need to restate the obvious. Is that our only function? Is it simply to keep repeating the same words over and over that everybody already knows and has heard many times?

    Democrats made a number of mistakes in their campaign and voters appropriately punished them for their failures. But what will Republicans do with their victory?

    The real problem is Congress simply can't get the job done when it comes to immigration. That is reason enough for the President to act.
