America is facing an unprecedented social and moral crisis, warned Sen. Marco Rubio during a speech Wednesday at the Catholic University.
The university says Jamie Roberts was killed Friday in Scott County, Kentucky, when she and another rider were struck by a truck. A group of five cyclists had stopped while Roberts was changing a tire. The other rider who was struck sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
The United Nations and victims advocates recently have amplified demands for an overhaul of the Vatican's response to its sex abuse scandal, but Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle has been spearheading change for decades.
The 77-year-old coach with the quick wit and famous sister (Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Maureen Dowd) led the Cardinals to the Landmark Conference title and a first-round match against Washington & Lee on Friday in the NCAA Division III bracket.
Marty Dowd has been the men's tennis coach at Catholic University for more than a half-century, and he's finally going to the NCAA tournament. He'll arrive with his sense of humor firmly intact.
Catholic University engineering student James Roche hopes to raise money for a disabled children's home in Jamaica, not only for those he met while on a 2013 mission trip but in memory of his sister.
Liberals can't stand competition. From their comfortable lofts in ivy-covered towers, left-wing professors sneer at free-market philanthropists eager for a role in the support of higher education. Several disgruntled professors are hectoring the administrators of the Catholic University of America to send back generous donations of $1 million from the Charles Koch Foundation and $500,000 from the Busch Family Foundation. So far, the school is standing firm.
Democrats have always depended on the Catholic vote. The abortion mandate has persuaded many they were duped.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' election of a middle-of-the-road candidate to replace Cardinal Timothy Dolan as president is being seen as a signal that American bishops are moving toward the more conciliatory policies of Pope Francis — though the new president himself said the fight against abortion will continue.
With the Obama administration's contraception mandate "bearing down," the Catholic University of America joined the Roman Catholic archbishop in the nation's capital in a renewed legal push to block enforcement of the provision that requires larger employers to insure birth control as part of their health plans.
Parishioners and visitors at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception expressed hope Thursday that Pope Francis will call the church establishment back to its core mission and values -- and perhaps bring wayward elements of the flock back into line.
In a city of monuments, Catholic's men's basketball team is tucked in a nondescript corner of the Brookland neighborhood in the midst of a season that's more anonymous than its surroundings. All the Cardinals seem to do is win.
Despite lacking the public charisma of his predecessor, Pope Benedict in just eight years was able to carve out his own legacy, in significant part by continuing John Paul's work in different ways.
America's 77 million Catholics generally gave Pope Benedict XVI high marks, but his surprise decision to step down after just eight years comes as the U.S. church confronts a string of unanswered questions, on issues ranging from divisions with the Obama administration on birth control and gay marriage to political activism by U.S. nuns and the continuing fallout from the sexual-abuse scandals in dioceses across the country.
Catholic University officials will continue to fight a mandate in President Obama's health care law that requires the school to provide insurance coverage for contraception, the school said Monday, even though a federal judge dismissed their lawsuit against the government as premature.
