Summit on the Sexual Abuse of Minors (2/23/2019)

Bishops from around the world gathered in Rome for Pope Francis’ Summit on the Sexual Abuse of Minors to discussion a united approach to Church reform. Reporting on this historic event from the Eternal City is the Register’s Rome Correspondent Edward Pentin and Matthew Bunson. Also, with terrible news, it’s tempting to wonder why be Catholic. Brandon Vogt author of Why I am Catholic (And You should Be Too) has compelling thoughts on why he’s stayed with the Church

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has re-emerged as a major health crisis in the United States and around the world. How is the Church responding, and what can be done to keep parishioners safe as they worship? We talk with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, a Catholic deacon and infectious disease specialist at Brown University. Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
