Copy Desk Daily, Jan. 10, 2020

The Copy Desk Daily highlights recommended news and opinion articles that have crossed the copy editors' desks on their way to you: National Catholic Reporter, Global Sisters Report and EarthBeat (NCR's project on faith and climate change).

On Jan. 6, NCR Executive Editor Tom Roberts emailed NCR Forward members asking if a homilist at their church had addressed either or both of these topics — Iran or anti-Semitism. Here's what we learned about "preaching from the headlines."

What is the environmental cost of pursuing nuclear weapons, even if they don't get used?

Who's putting faith in redemptive violence rather than in the Gospel? Find out.

Hurricanes, earthquakes ... how can the U.S. Supreme Court help Puerto Rico?

One of our favorite things about Friday is that Horizons comes out. If you aren't signed up for those weekly emails (from GSR), you might not know about all the excellent writing from younger sisters that's published there. This week, Marianist Sr. Nicole Trahan shares inspiration for our times found in the miracle of the loaves and fishes.
