Stream Watch

Sure, this Wednesday might bring the feast of St Mary Magdalen... but from a distance, that's a shot of Omaha's St Cecilia's Cathedral, where the summertime circuit's last blast gets underway later today with Archbishop-elect George Lucas' installation at 2pm local time (3pm ET, 1900GMT).

For those watching over the web, the chancery promises a worship aid on its page by Mass-time; both EWTN and CatholicTV will livestream the liturgy, the latter providing its customary on-demand viewing as soon as the feed can be coded.

And that's not all -- today likewise brings the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's confirmation hearing for Vatican Ambassador-designate Miguel Diaz.

While the omnipresent C-Span hasn't yet scheduled a showing, the Holy See nominee's first public comments since his May selection for the post will likely pop up at some point during the day... so keep an eye for 'em 'round here as soon as any reports emerge.

As always, stay tuned... and to one and all, a Happy Mid-Week.
