“Forgiveness, not just apologies." (Pope Francis)
Today's Gospel: “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” (Matthew 8:19)
In the News:
- The Supreme Court has overturned a Texas law requiring clinics that provide abortions to have surgical facilities and doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
- Thousands of wealthy donors who helped fuel Republicans’ presidential ambitions in the last two election cycles have not donated to Donald Trump’s campaign or to other committees supporting his bid, underscoring the challenge the real-estate magnate faces in securing the hundreds of millions he needs to finance his general-election campaign.
- With British politics in chaos, the country’s leaders stalled for time Monday to get their own house in order before triggering negotiations to leave the European Union, a point from which there will be no turning back.
Pope Francis and church news:
- The Catholic church and other Christian communities must apologize to gay people and to many groups they have let down or offended throughout history, Pope Francis has said.
- Pope Francis reiterated his desire for full communion with the Armenian Apostolic Church during its divine liturgy on Sunday, the final major event of his three-day visit to the Caucasus nation.
- Celebrating its 25th anniversary in Chicago, the National Catholic Council for Hispanic Ministry poses a recurring question to the 34 member organizations attending its annual conference: Latinos are creeping toward a commanding majority of U.S. Catholics, so how can we help the church with its pastoral approach?
