In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include the firing of Trump's campaign manager, the Supreme Court weighing in on banning firearms, and the pope talks about the need for Jesus now more than ever.
“I will go anywhere and do anything in order to communicate the love of Jesus to those who do not know Him or have forgotten Him." (St. Frances Xavier Cabrini)
Today's Gospel: “Stop judging, that you may not be judged.” (Matthew 7:1)
In the News:

- The Supreme Court declined Monday to review bans on a lengthy list of firearms that Connecticut classified as “assault weapons,” the latest example of the court’s reluctance to be drawn into an emotional national debate on gun control.
- The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, defeating the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Sunday's deciding Game 7.
Pope Francis and church news:
- On Sunday Pope Francis said that with a growing sense of emptiness and insecurity gripping the world, Jesus Christ is needed more than ever before, since he alone knows how to answer humanity’s deepest questions.
- Using the word "genocide" to describe the persecution of Christians in the Middle East risks downplaying the courage and witness of those who boldly profess faith in Jesus Christ even in the face of death, Pope Francis said.
- The leaders of the world’s Orthodox Christian churches have gathered on the Greek island of Crete for a landmark meeting, despite a boycott by the Russian church - the most populous in a religion of some 300 million people - and three other churches.
