Note to Readers

I am on holiday for a week and, so, will limit my postings to my usual morning commentary. Please check NCRToday, our group blog, for links to other important stories.

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.
