  • In striking down Texas abortion clinic regulations, the U.S. Supreme Court transformed "judicially created rights like the right to abortion into preferred constitutional rights while disfavoring many of the rights actually enumerated in the Constitution," argues Justice Clarence Thomas in a dissenting opinion.

  • There is a pervasive "culture of the provisional" today that has invalidated many sacramental marriages, says Pope Francis.

  • Catholic schools should be seen as a vital parish ministry: not just an educational ministry but a ministry of evangelization and service to the entire family, says Bishop James V. Johnston of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri.
