In today's Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include unrest continues at the University of Missouri, Obama calls on greater benefits for veterans, and the pope discusses dinner and the family.
“Christian doctrine is not a closed system incapable of generating questions, doubts, interrogatives. But it is alive, knows being unsettled ... it does not have a rigid face, it has a body that moves and grows, it has a soft flesh: it is called Jesus Christ.” (Pope Francis)
Today's Gospel: "Stand up and go; your faith has saved you." (Luke 17:19)
In the News:
- No major changes: That was the pundits' consensus on the state of the Republican presidential race after Tuesday night's debate, hosted by Fox Business and the Wall Street Journal.
- A day after protests brought down two University of Missouri officials, reports of racially charged threats permeated social media -- as well as a rumor the Ku Klux Klan had arrived on campus.
- The Obama administration today will call on Congress to pass measures to help military veterans gain easier access to health care, disability and educational benefits.
Pope Francis and church news:
- For Pope Francis the dinner table is a key place to strengthen family bonds and foster a sense of “togetherness,” which he said can often be thwarted by an excess attachment to technology.
- In a new article for National Catholic Reporter, Michael Sean Winters examines the strengths and weaknesses of last night's GOP debate performers and what it may mean for the presidential race going forward.
- A Catholic couple who established a charity to save migrants drowning at sea last year, are to launch a new rescue mission in the Aegean Sea.
