In today's Catholic Daily Roundup top stories include the U.S. probation office's recommendation for former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell to spend at least 10 years in prison, a federal judge's ruling that police can no longer use gas on protesters without declaring an illegal assembly, and Pope Francis' meeting with Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund. 

"We are in God and God is in us: this is the Christian life."-- Pope Francis

Today's Gospel: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.” (Luke 1:39-47)

In the News:

  • The congressional fight over a $1.1 trillion spending package moved to the Senate on Friday, where passage is expected, but not without possible delays prompted by Democrats.
  • The U.S. probation office has recommended that the onetime Republican rising star, former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell, spend at least 10 years and a month in prison.
  • A federal judge ruled Thursday that police can no longer use tear gas on protesters without declaring an illegal assembly, giving them fair warning and time to vacate the area
