Pope speaks of the path to peace during Mass in Myanmar

YANGON, Myanmar–Jesus’ love “is like a spiritual GPS” that guides people past the everyday obstacles of fear and pride and allows them to find their way to a relationship with God and with their neighbors, Pope Francis said. Christ’s message of “forgiveness and mercy uses a logic that not all will want to understand, and […]


Strong net neutrality protections critical to faith community

WASHINGTON–The chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Communications has urged the Trump administration to keep current net neutrality rules in place because an open internet, he said, is critical to the nation’s faith communities and how they interact with their members. “Without open internet principles which prohibit paid prioritization, we might be forced to […]


Pope: Uniformity is greater threat to culture than differences

YANGON, Myanmar–In a small, informal meeting with a variety of religious leaders, Pope Francis went to the heart of his message for Myanmar: unity, not uniformity, is the secret to peace.

USCCB domestic policy chair decries many items in Senate tax bill

WASHINGTON–The chair of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development likes some of the provisions of the Senate’s tax bill, but those likes are dwarfed by items that he said run afoul of Catholic teaching. “The Senate proposal is fundamentally flawed as written and requires amendment,” said Bishop Frank J. Dewane of […]

YANGON, Myanmar–Greeted by two dozen children wearing traditional attire and by the nation’s bishops, Pope Francis arrived in Myanmar Nov. 27 for a four-day visit.

Holy Cross Cemetery undergoes a make-over

CHARLESTON—Major changes are afoot at Holy Cross Cemetery. Karmin Meade, the new director of cemeteries for the Diocese of Charles­ton, said the first thing people no­ticed was the difference in the brick wall surrounding the property. An intensive bout of power spray­ing restored the bricks to a “like new” state and had people stopping by the […]


Catholic-Jewish convocation held at St. Francis by the Sea

HILTON HEAD ISLAND—Rabbi Brad Bloom reminded a crowd at St. Francis by the Sea Church of a solemn anniver­sary dating back 79 years. In that November of 1939, Jewish people were attacked and killed in Germany, and thou­sands of synagogues, Jewish-owned businesses, schools and homes were vandalized and destroyed by Nazis during a rampage of terror […]


Youth urged to remember they’re ‘beloved children of God, called by name’

INDIANAPOLIS—The sound of more than 20,000 teens screaming and singing along with racuous music of Christian hip-hop band TobyMac was loud. The sound of the same number of youth in silent prayer was deafening. These external and internal forms of praise formed bookends to the opening general session of the National Catholic Youth Conference Nov. […]


Women religious focus on caring for God’s creation

MYRTLE BEACH—Women religious spend much of their time caring for others, through teaching, health care, work­ing with the poor, parish ministries, prayer and spiritual counseling.
