    TX Bishop Breaks Silence on McCarrick Bp. Joseph Strickland urges 'full reckoning' of McCarrick scandal, greater lay participation A Texas prelate is breaking the U.S. bishops' silence on Theodore McCarrick. During the Thursday morning session of the U.S. bishops' meeting in Baltimore, Bp. Joseph Strickland of the diocese of Tyler, Texas addressed his brother bishops, stressing his desire that "a full reckoning of the McCarrick scandal be offered." The topic of McCarrick had barely been raised in any of the official discussions of the week-long meeting, even though his serial homosexual predation — and the network of bishops complicit in covering for him — was...

    The ‘Ethics’ of Trump’s Border Wall A wall would cause harm to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God. Is the border wall ethical? President Trump has suggested the wall is moral and those who oppose it immoral. His critics claim the opposite. To answer this, we have to consider its effect on humans. What harm could a border wall cause to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God? Some people who cross the border are in desperate search of work to support their...

Tobin, C.Ss.R. express shock, sadness and consternation at the wide-ranging array of allegations published by the former apostolic nuncio to the United States of America, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, which cannot be understood as contributing to the healing of survivors of sexual abuse.The factual errors, innuendo and fearful ideology of the “testimony” serve to strengthen our conviction to move ahead resolutely in protecting the young and vulnerable from any sort of abuse, while guaranteeing...

    INDIANAPOLIS — For about a year, the guys at the gym just called him Joe. He lifted weights in the early mornings wearing a skull-printed do-rag. He worked out on the elliptical, wiping it down when he was done.Then one day Shaun Yeary, a salesman at a landscape supply company, asked him in the locker room what he did for a living. “I used to be a priest,” Joe recalled telling him. “And now,” he said, his voice growing quieter so as not to scare anyone in earshot, “I’m the archbishop of Indianapolis.”“I was like, for real?” Mr. Yeary recalled....

    New Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark told Crux on Monday that when it comes to the pope’s document Amoris Laetita and its provisions on Communion for divorced and civilly remarried Catholics, U.S. bishops should get together and work out a strategy rather than individually asking the pope for clarifications.ROME - I’ve often said that one of the best ways to know you’re getting old in the Catholic Church is when guys you used to pal around with in Roman bars and restaurants start getting named bishops. By that standard, I suppose, the test of getting really old is when those...
