Theology & Spirituality

Weekly Reads {September 26}

Happy weekend, dear readers!

This week, whether we are Catholic or not, let us keep Pope Francis in our prayers as he travels through America. All Christians, no matter what denomination, can learn from his teachings on the environment, the dignity of life, concern for the poor, and living the Gospel in everyday life.

Here is a round-up of different religion, theology, and current events articles from our own authors and across the internet.
