Due to a retreat and scheduled vacation, Wisdom Wednesday is presenting preplanned collections of items for the next several weeks, with a return to the customary style and format on September 13.
Today we ask you to explore what remains of Catholic News Service after the U.S. bishops shut down North American operations while maintaining presence at the Vatican.
There are photographic images of Rome in mid-August.
There is a report on the papal message to the Communion and Liberation Movement: In a world suffering from an “epidemic of enmity,” Christians can offer healing by recognizing each person as a child of God and reaching out in friendship, said a top Vatican official, writing on behalf of Pope Francis.
There is a hopeful report that “Young Catholics who went to World Youth Day in Lisbon, Portugal, knew about the upcoming assembly of the Synod of Bishops.”
Cindy Wooden reports that young people “shared many of the concerns expressed during [the Synod’s] preparatory phases and wanted to share their prayers and hopes with the synod members who will meet at the Vatican in October.”
“Catholic Current” is a video feature you may enjoy on the USCCB website.
