In this week's video for Current TV, I talk about a Virginia pharmacy that celebrated its grand opening earlier this week with a Catholic bishop, a sprinkling of holy water and a crowd of roughly 50 children. It's fair to sum up Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy's philosophy as faith with a side of pharmacology.

(Note: After filming this video, I read Jessica Grose's earlier coverage on Jezebel, and discovered that we had very similar takes, right down to the "what's the big deal" debunking. So, a hat tip to her.)
