Catholics Clearing Up Their Beliefs
Finding Design in Nature (linking to the FR page because it has a large excerpt, and the full article requires login)
Basically, while I wish that they would go further in endorsing the Biblical account, they have clarified that they are not materialists, and that a purely material theory of origins is unacceptable.
