In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include a successful mission for NASA, the Pope seeking a political solution in Syria, and Tesla struggling to keep up with demand.

"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!" (St. Catherine of Sienna)

Today's Gospel: “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;” (Matthew 9:37)

In the News:

  • NASA's Juno probe successfully enters Jupiters orbit, a moment that engineers said was 'make or break' for the mission.
  • A group of Brazilian scientists have detected a drug-resistant bacteria growing off the shores of some of Rio de Janeiro's most stunning beaches, one month before they're due to host the 2016 Olympic Games.
  • Tesla Motors missed its vehicle delivery target for the second consecutive quarter and is on track to fall short of its annual target, suggesting the U.S. electric car maker is still wrestling with production issues as it looks to transform itself into a mainstream, high-volume manufacturer.

Pope Francis and church news:

  • The U.N. human rights chief on Tuesday called a suicide bombing outside the Prophet Mohammad's Mosque in the Saudi city of Medina an attack on Islam itself and many Muslims expressed shock that their second-holiest site had been targeted.
  • Since Donald Trump says the Bible is his favorite book, it’s worth asking: Just what is his theology?
  • Pope Francis is urging governments to find a political solution to the war in Syria as part a new campaign.
