CACG responds to Pope Francis's intervention in new US-Cuba deal

Francis‬'s 78th birthday is today. To celebrate, he gave the American people an incredible gift.

By helping broker today's historic agreement between the United States and Cuba, Pope Francis has once again proven that the Church at its best can be an instrument of peace, justice and progress in a world where violence, injustice and decline are all too prevalent. The Holy Father has shown us the important role that faith can play in public life and how it can contribute in making our world more just and less cold. We pray that this new era of relations between the United States and Cuba can lead a more peaceful and productive era between our two nations.

CACG responds to the report released on the apostolic visitation of US women religious

Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good's senior fellow Christopher Hale released the following statement on the report released on the apostolic visitation of US women religious:

We give thanks to God for a successful conclusion to the apostolic visitation of women religious in the United States. The report affirmed what we know to be true: that women religious provide irreplaceable leadership for the Church in the United States. They educate our children. They teach us how to pray. They run our soup kitchens. They protect the poor. And they lobby our politicians. 

We offer our strong support and prayers for American women religious as they work to be the Church that Jesus longs for us to be: a Church on the margins, a poor Church that is for the poor, a Church that heals wounds and warm hearts, a Church that is always a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven.
