“Love God, serve God; everything is in that.” (St. Clare of Assisi)
Today's Gospel: "Remain in me, as I remain in you." (John 15:4)
In the News:
- Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton rapidly turned their fire on each other with an eye toward November's presidential election after rolling up strong wins in Northeastern states.
- Former House speaker Dennis Hastert arrived at the federal courthouse in a wheelchair Wednesday for sentencing on a bank fraud case linked to allegations of abuse.
- Apple's streak of iPhone-powered sales ended Tuesday when the company reported its first quarterly sales drop in more than a decade.
Pope Francis and church news:
- To ignore the suffering of another person is to ignore God and going to church does not automatically make someone love their neighbor, Pope Francis said during his weekly general audience.
- Pope Francis issued strong words to the Pontifical Commission for Latin America, calling clericalism “one of the greatest distortions” facing the local Church.
- Pope Francis named Archbishop Juan Garcia Rodriguez, who has worked quietly to help rebuild the Cuban church, physically and spiritually, to be the new archbishop of Havana.
