During his morning Mass on September 3, Pope Francis said silence and prayer are the correct responses to those who cause scandal and division in the Church. Reflecting on the gospel and the actions of Jesus, the Holy Father stated, "The truth is meek. The truth is silent. The truth is not noisy."
Here are the stories that we covered today:
1. Pope Francis speaks to the world on Saturday for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, on Sunday in his Angelus address, and on Monday during Mass at Casa Santa Marta.
2. Catholic bishops and religious orders in Australia react to recommendations from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
3. American Catholic bishops released their annual Labour Day statement entitled "Just Wages and Human Flourishing."
In addition to those, here are some of the latest news stories from around the world that have made headlines over the weekend and today:
South Korea labels abortion an 'immoral medical action'. The South Korean government included abortion in a list of “immoral medical actions” earlier this month as the country’s abortion law was revised to enable authorities to suspend medical professionals for performing abortions illegally.
Philippine church closes after desecration. The Immaculate Conception Cathedral of Cubao in the Philippine capital of Manila was temporarily closed following reports that it was desecrated last week, suspending all religious activities.
That's it for today. Be sure to check in with us again tomorrow for more of the latest Catholic news and stories that you need to know.
