Note to Readers

I will be attending the Conference on Rerum Novarum at Catholic University all day today. So, unless we get a long break, which I do not anticipate, I will not be posting further today. This break allows you, dear reader, to consider making a contribution to our NCR web-a-thon.

Just $5 a month supports NCR's independent Catholic journalism.

We are committed to keeping our online journalism open and available to as many readers as possible. To do that, we need your help. Join NCR Forward, our new membership program.
