Staying Informed on the Church and the World

Keeping up with the current news cycle is overwhelming enough, but there’s a lot happening in the Church, too. While it isn’t all good news all the time, it’s important as Catholics to stay informed about issues and events that affect the body of Christ. Thankfully, whether the headlines are good or bad, we can be hopeful in Jesus’ promise that “the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail” against the Church he established (see Matthew 16:18, NABRE).

However, a lot of good is happening in the Church, too—from lay apostolates to Church leaders at home and around the globe, the Holy Spirit is continuing to work in the Church in amazing and inspiring ways.

By keeping up with Catholic news, you’ll be better equipped to pray for the needs of the Church. You’ll also be encouraged in your own faith by witnessing the works of the Holy Spirit in the lives of real Catholics today.
