Let us return to the Eucharist," Pope Francis said in his homily on Sept. 25."Let us return to the taste of bread because while we are hungry for love and hope, or we are broken by the travails and sufferings of life, Jesus becomes food that feeds us and heals us."Matera, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world known for its ancient cave dwellings, is also called the "city of bread" due to its traditional sourdough recipe that has been passed down over centuries.The ancient "city of bread" hosted Italy's National ...

Gavin Newsom of California unveiled his plan for a billboard advertising campaign inviting women to travel to his state to have abortions, he was swiftly condemned by Catholics, who called the ads "unconscionable" and "blasphemy." Why the strong reaction? The abortion-selling ads include a passage from Scripture: "Need an abortion? California is ready to help," reads the message to be displayed along Indiana and Oklahoma highways. In smaller lettering, the ads cite Jesus Christ's words in the Gospel of Mark: "Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these. -Mark 12:31""It is unconscionable that these ads distort Scripture to support abortion, specifically in states that have already dramatically limited abortion in favor of supporting life," Kathleen Domingo, executive director of the California Catholic Conference, told CNA Sept. 23...
