Most-viewed CNS stories for April

In a month that included the historic visit to the United States by Pope Benedict, it figures that the most-viewed story on our home page for April would instead be about liturgical renewal. Bloggers and others are passionate about issues surrounding the liturgy, and their links to stories like these always have an affect on any site’s Web stats. (They’re also passionate about the Mormon faith, as shown by No. 2 below. More on that later.)

But eight of our most-viewed stories were indeed on the papal visit. Check them out if you missed any of our coverage the first time around:
