- Regulators ordered five big U.S. banks to make significant revisions to their so-called living wills by Oct. 1 or face potential regulatory sanctions, a stern warning that will fuel criticism the firms are “too big to fail.”
Pope Francis and church news:
- In a new article for the Washington Post, CACG executive director Christopher Hale asks a compelling question: Could Pope Francis be a feminist pope?
- Without a repentant heart, Christians can risk living out their faith superficially and fail to live out God's desire for "mercy, not sacrifice," Pope Francis said.
