Most-viewed CNS stories for September

The beginning of a new month means it’s time to look at the most-viewed CNS stories during September. As regular readers of these posts know, stories involving the liturgy usually get the most circulation, and this month is no exception (see Nos. 2, 5 and 7 below).

But there’s also an interesting mix of stories on the current economic crisis, the election season, popular devotion, and evolution. And the words of Pope Benedict are always intriguing for many readers (see No. 9).

Here’s September’s list:

1. Vatican newspaper says crisis shows failure of ‘new economy’ (Sept. 24)

2. No ‘Yahweh’ in songs, prayers at Catholic Masses, Vatican rules (Aug. 12)

3. U.S. archbishop at Vatican says Democrats becoming ‘party of death’ (Sept. 29)

4. Vatican disciplines ex-spiritual director to Medjugorje visionaries (Sept. 5)

5. Cardinal: Some not satisfied even after pope’s Tridentine Mass decree (Sept. 16)

6. Anglican archbishop comes under fire for homily at Lourdes (Sept. 24)

7. Mixed reviews: Implementation of Tridentine ruling frustrates some (Sept. 19)

8. Top Polish theologian rejects Vatican demand to retract article (Sept. 17)

9. Ten texts help crack pope’s pontificate, mission, ministry (May 30) (Editor’s note: Is there a professor somewhere out there who is teaching a class on Benedict XVI and using this four-month-old story — which lists “10 fundamental texts that can help people understand the man, his thought and his ministry” — as a syllabus? If so, don’t forget to check out our post with links to each of these papal texts.)

10. Vatican evolution congress to exclude creationism, intelligent design (Sept. 16)
