Pope Francis, in a homily today, once again called upon Catholics to go out and spread the Word of God. He encouraged believers to have a confidence that comes from trusting in the Holy Spirit.
It may be true that the National Catholic Reporter would have to be invented if it did not exist, but please don't take that wild gamble.
We have a gem so let's not risk the consequences of placing this matchless resource under financial restrictions.
Journalistic enterprise, imagination and courage is in short supply, particularly with regard to reporting on religion.
So I hope you'll pitch in during this last stretch of the fund drive. It's a vote for a better future.
We need everyone’s help to meet our goal today. A matching grant this morning will help.
While a conference geared toward issues of priest leadership can tend to be male-dominated, a few women also made appearances in Reno.
One was Dominican Sr. Terry Rickard, executive director and president of RENEW International, who addressed priests Wednesday morning as part of the 45th annual conference of the National Federation of Priests’ Councils.
Her talk centered on small communities and their role in nurturing renewal and the new evangelization.
If you match this $5,000 challenge grant, we'll be closer to our goal than ever. Donate now.
More than 300 people, including students, faculty, staff and outside community members, filled the Saint Mary’s College Chapel in Moraga, Calif. April 24 to honor Christian Brother Alvaro Rodriguez Echeverria during the annual Convocation Mass of De La Salle Week, which also marked the university's 150th anniversary.
Echeverria, superior general of the Christian Brothers in Rome, delivered an address on the societal benefits of empowering the poor through globalization in education. He also received an honorary doctoral degree at the event.
Matching grant met! The score is close and most of the game is behind us, but the pitching is good, our batters are hot and victory is in sight. We can raise $100,000 this week.
Women heading offices in the Curia. Sounds crazy, right? Well, maybe. But when I'm wistful, I think about the possibilities and what a difference they would make: Elizabeth Johnson -- or Margaret Farley, or maybe Brazilian theologian Ivone Gebara -- appointed to lead the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. No more anathemas. In fact, it might mean no more doctrinal congregation. They might advise the pope to abolish this relic of the Inquisition as useless and alienating in the 21st-century church.
Pope Francis is reportedly planning a trip to Assisi, named after the saint who inspired his name.
The Associated Press reported today that Vatican spokesman, Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, said Francis will probably make a pilgrimage to the Italian hill town sometime this year.
