EWTN network reports that Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez received the anointing of the sick at a July 5 Mass. The sacrament used to be called the last rites. Hmmm.
Lots of ship movement being noticed. The GHWB carrier has entered the Persian Gulf – the first time one of our carriers has gone through the Straits of Hormuz in months. Another amphibious warfare ship has plopped down by Libya while another carrier is leaving the South China Seas to anchor near the Ronald Reagan also near the Straits.
