In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include Trump in Nevada, a major company loses a court case, and Catholics in Britain get creative on how to evangelize.
“Merely talking leads to vanity, to faking being a Christian. But no, one is not a Christian this way,” (Pope Francis)
Today's Gospel: "The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:28)
In the News:
- Donald Trump notched a resounding win in the Nevada caucuses, channeling the roiling anger of Republican voters against the establishment and sweeping almost every category of the electorate to build his dominance in the delegate count.
- Health giant Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $72 million in damages to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer allegedly caused by using the company’s Baby Powder and other products that contained talcum for feminine hygiene.
- A 16-year-old Swedish girl rescued from ISIS territory in northern Iraq by Kurdish special forces has given a television interview explaining how she came to be stranded in the terror group's so-called caliphate.
Pope Francis and church news:
- Days after creating a stir by saying that Donald Trump “is not Christian” because of his harsh views on immigrants, Pope Francis again took up the theme of “fake” Christians in a homily Mass.
- Pope Francis dedicated his General Audience on Wednesday to the theme of proper disposition expected by Christian faith toward the goods of the world, saying that they serve the common good if used in accordance with the demands of justice, charity and mercy.
- A diocese in England is using a double-decker bus as a venue for priests to hear the confessions of people who have stopped going to church.
