In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include Clinton trailing in Key swing states, bishops in Africa weigh in on October's synod, and nuns divest from fossil fuels.
"Truly, dear brothers, the Gospel of the marginalized is where our credibility is at stake, is discovered and is revealed!" (Pope Francis)
Today's Reading: “But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear.” (Matthew 13:16)
In the News:
- A new poll shows Hillary Clinton trailing potential Republican opponents in the key states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.
- President Obama made his final appearance on John Stewart’s Daily Show Tuesday night, and before they got into the real meat of the interview, he had a very important presidential duty to do.
- Police dashboard video showing the arrest of Sandra Bland in Prairie View, Texas released Tuesday evening includes a number of continuity issues that suggests the possibility that the video was edited before its release.
Pope Francis and church news:
- October's synod of bishops on the family should take on a global perspective, rather than sticking to isolated issues found primarily in western society, African Church leaders have said.
- Pope Francis is not as popular a pontiff as he used to be in the United States — especially among conservatives — according to a new Gallup survey out Wednesday.
- In an article for National Catholic Reporter, Sr. Maureen Fiedler of the Loretto community discusses why her order is divesting from fossil fuels.
