Two-Time Nobel Prize Winner Frederick Sanger, an Agnostic, Dies

Frederick Sanger, the two-time Nobel Prize winner, died on Tuesday at the age of 95:

It was remarkable what he accomplished in his career:

Dr. Sanger won his first Nobel Prize, in chemistry, in 1958 for showing how amino acids link together to form insulin. The discovery gave scientists the tools to analyze any protein in the body.

In 1980 he received his second Nobel, also in chemistry, for inventing a method of “reading” the molecular letters that make up the genetic code.

Guess How These Catholic Groups Are Helping Typhoon Survivors in the Philippines

A CBCP [Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines] News report said the religious articles came from Jocelyn Bernina, a staff member of John Aboitiz Carcovich through God the Father Foundation, Inc. and a friend of CBCP Media Office director Msgr. Pedro Quitorio III.

But there’s even more good news:

Last week, the pro-life prayer support group ‘Rosary for Life’ donated to CBCP an initial 3,000 rosaries followed by another 10,000.

Very generous.

I’ve made a little infographic to help you understand what’s going on here.
