In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include questions about Hillary Clinton's emails, the fatal shooting of a man by the LAPD, and a speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in front of a joint session of Congress.
“May the Lord, in this Lent, give us the grace to learn to judge ourselves” (Pope Francis)
Today's Reading: "Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted." (MT 23:12)
In the News:
- A spokesman for Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that while she used a personal e-mail account during her years as secretary of State, those records have been maintained pursuant to federal rules.
- The Los Angeles Police Department's fatal shooting of a man on the city's infamous Skid Row is bringing new focus to the use of officer-worn body cameras, a widely embraced but largely untested tool aimed at improving law enforcement's relationship with the public.
- In a highly anticipated speech to Congress Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to level a sharp critique of the Obama administration's efforts to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran.
Pope Francis and church news:
- In a lighthearted video from America Magazine, Stephen Colbert professes his faith to Fr. James Martin.
- Domenico Giani, commander of the Vatican's security forces, told Italy's Polizia Moderna that ISIS presents a significant threat to Pope Francis and the Vatican. Giana added, though, that there isn't indication ISIS is planning an attack directed at the pope.
- The Vatican announced Tuesday that Pope Francis has appointed San Francisco’s native auxiliary bishop, Robert W. McElroy, as the new head of the diocese of San Diego.
