Pope Francis: Access to Food, Water Basic Human Right

Pope 1019162016-10-19 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday said access to food and water is a basic human right, and called on believers and people of good will everywhere to take personal responsibility for the needs of their neighbors. The appeal came during the Holy Father's weekly General Audience in St. Peter’s Square. The Pope focused on feeding the hungry – the first of the Corporal Works of Mercy – during the catechetical portion of the event. Read more here.

Diocese News From The Northern Cross

Father Richard Kunst: No, we don’t always have more time

I am a huge Minnesota Twins fan, which means this was a very disappointing summer. When they started off with a 0-9 record, I knew that things were not going to be good, and as it turns out, that was not even their longest losing streak of the season.

Still, I love watching them. Call me hopelessly optimistic. My summer evening routine (when I do not have commitments) includes a good book and the Twins on mute. When there are a couple of runners on base, I will turn the mute off and pay closer attention to the game, or when I am done reading for the evening I finish watching the game with sound. During games this season, there has frequently been a commercial for a lawn mower. Though I cannot remember the brand, the commercial has certainly stuck in my brain for other reasons.
