Pope tells us to think beyond our borders when considering environmental issues

Continuing with my reflections on "Laudato Si’," the encyclical by Pope Francis on the environment, I would like to point out some of what may not be so obvious to us. We as Americans don’t often have a perspective of the whole world. How could we, unless we have the time to research it?

Francis is ‘son of immigrant family’

WASHINGTON – Pope Francis introduced himself to President Barack Obama and all people of the United States as a "son of an immigrant family" arriving in the United States for the first time to learn from others and to share from his own experience.

Columbans’ sale highlights missions

This year dried, sweetened mangoes will be sold alongside Christmas cards and children’s books, all from the Philippines. And there will be Christmas cards again from China.
