Pope Francis from his weekly address to visitors in Vatican Square:
"I am heartbroken by the massacre at the elementary school in Texas. I pray for the children and the adults who were killed and for their families," Francis said of the shooting in Uvalde, Texas. "It is time to say 'enough' to the indiscriminate trafficking of weapons. Let us all make a commitment so that tragedies like this cannot happen again," he said.

Oh stop! You may have heard glorious sounds produced by the organs at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, National Shrine of the Apostle Paul, but a visit to the Cathedral Museum will put you up close with these organ knobs, called stops. A stop is a component of a pipe organ that admits pressurized air to a set of organ pipes. The name comes from the fact that each can be "on" (admitting the passage of air to certain pipes), or "off" (stopping the passage of air to certain pipes).

Those pictured are from an organ made by the renowned E. M. Skinner and used in the third iteration of our Cathedral, the last version before our current grand church was constructed early in the 20th century.
