In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include a change of faces on currency, support for Trump rises among Catholics, and officials are charged in the Flint water crisis.
“Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry” (St. Pio of Pietrelcino)
Today's Gospel: "The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me." (John 13:18)
In the News:
- Alexander Hamilton keeps his place on the $10 bill while Andrew Jackson gets the boot, replaced by Harriet Tubman.
- Three people — two officials with the state Department of Environmental Quality and a water official from Flint — are facing criminal charges as a result of an investigation into the lead-contaminated water case in Flint.
- After a forceful win in New York, Donald Trump has a narrow but real path to 1,237 delegates, the number required to avoid a contested convention.
Pope Francis and church news:
- Support for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump among his party’s church-going Catholics has risen since Pope Francis suggested the U.S. businessman was not a real Christian, a Reuters/Ipsos poll shows.
- For decades, Congress and U.S. presidents -- both Republican and Democrat -- have approved federal laws "protecting conscientious objection to abortion," but it is increasingly clear current laws "offer far less protection in practice than in theory," said a group of faith-based, health care and pro-life organizations.
- A new stage has begun in the process toward possible canonization for Dorothy Day, the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement.
