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. […]


Bishops urge protection for migrants, refugees, other ‘vulnerable’ groups

WASHINGTON—As the nation made preparations to celebrate Thanksgiving Day, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops expressed gratitude for “the gift of immigrants and refugees to the country,” but also appealed for their protection. “As we do every year, we will pause this coming Thursday to thank God for the many blessings we […]

WASHINGTON—The United States must resume its leadership role in addressing climate change, dozens of Catholic leaders wrote in a letter to President Donald Trump. “On behalf of people who are poor and vulnerable and future generations, we especially ask that you act based upon the best available climate science,” 161 leaders said in the Nov.

Blessed Solanus lived out faith, hope, charity every day, says cardinal

DETROIT—Blessed Solanus Casey always said that “as long as there is a spark of faith,” there can be no discouragement or sorrow, said Cardinal Angelo Amato, head of the Vatican’s Congregation for Saints’ Causes.

‘Invest in love,’ pope says on first World Day of the Poor

VATICAN CITY—People have a basic choice in the way they live: either striving to build up treasures on earth or giving to others in order to gain heaven, Pope Francis said. “What we invest in love remains, the rest vanishes,” the pope said in his homily Nov. 19, the first World Day of the Poor. […]


Supreme Court to hear case on free speech and crisis pregnancy centers

WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court has decided to hear a case examining freedom of speech at crisis pregnancy centers. The case, accepted Nov. 13, will consider if a California law that went into effect in 2016 violates the Constitution by requiring the state’s 200 crisis pregnancy centers to inform their clients, in specific detail, about the availability […]


Pope: Realizing today may be one’s last day can change life

VATICAN CITY—It is not morbid to start each day understanding that it may be one’s last, Pope Francis said. Death is a reality that will come to everyone — for some as a sudden surprise, for others as an end to an illness — but in every case, Jesus will say, “Come with me,” the […]


Pope reminds us that Mass is a time for silence and prayer

VATICAN CITY—Mass is the highest form of prayer and not an appropriate moment for small talk, Pope Francis said. At church, Catholics should spend their time in silence before Mass, preparing “to meet with Jesus” instead of engaging in “chitchat,” the pope said Nov. 15 during his weekly general audience. “Silence is so important,” he […]


Hammer-wielding volunteers head for Houston

COLUMBIA—Nearly two months have passed since historic rainfall and catastrophic flooding from Hurricane Harvey hit the area around Houston, leaving thousands of families with severely damaged homes, limited financial resources and seemingly nowhere to turn.

Bishops urge U.S. leaders to enact measures to save lives

WASHINGTON—The nation’s leaders “must engage in a real debate about needed measures to save lives and make our communities safer,” said the chairman of the U.S. bishops’ domestic policy committee.
