Synod a win for Francis and for openness
The synod was a victory for openness and discussion in the church and the final document is an invitation for everyone in the church to join that discussion. This is exactly what Pope Francis wanted.
Synod document offers new style of being Church
Listening, accompanying, respecting, valuing, discerning, welcoming, dialogue are words repeated throughout the new document being discussed by the synod of bishops in Rome this week. Words of condemnation and marginalization were avoided.
Why Pope Francis supports limited action against Islamic State
When it comes to the use of military force, Americans tend to be in two camps: those who want to use overwhelming force to defeat our enemies and those who oppose the use of force for one reason or another.
Refugees and Christians in Middle East need our help and support
The news around the world is tragic and depressing. 
The fanatical fighters of the Islamic State are gobbling up land and murdering those who believe differently than they do.

Four goals of papal visit to Holy Land
Pope Francis' three-day visit to the Holy Land beginning May 24 will be full of opportunities and challenges. On one level, like any pilgrim, he comes to pray in the Holy Land where Jesus walked and lived. But as leader of the Catholic community, he also has four goals that go beyond those of a typical pilgrim.
The political future of religious progressives
In recent years, religious progressives have been the neglected stepsister compared to her big brother, the religious right. Big brother gets all the attention from the media, while little sister is ignored. She also goes around with a tin cup begging for nickels and dimes while big brother has lots of money to spend. Does little sister have future?
John XXIII and John Paul II united in heaven
As everyone in the Catholic Church gets ready to celebrate the canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II, I feel like a party pooper because I think canonizing popes is a dumb idea.
