(Vatican Radio) The head of the U.S Catholic Bishops Conference, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, says Pope Francis will come to his country as a pastor and a prophet, to walk with people but also to challenge them to conversion of heart.
With less than a month to go before the papal plane touches down in Washington DC at the start of the Popeâs week-long visit to the U.S, Archbishop Kurtz joined other American Church leaders to brief journalists at the annual Religion Newswritersâ Association Conference, which concluded in Philadelphia on Sunday.Read More

The general prayer intention of Pope Francis is for thejobless youth: that opportunities for education andÂ employment may increase for all youngÂ people.Â Â The Holy Father is greatly concerned about high jobless rates among young people, saying they are becoming a lost generation - victim of todayâs âthrow-awayâ culture that casts aside anyone who is not profitable economically. Â Itâs painful to see young people on the lookout for their first job turned away for lack of previous experience, thus nipping them in the bud.Â The Pope says the problem is more than merely economic. Â It is a problem of dignity. Â Without work, one âcannot have the experience of dignity which comes from being able to put food on the table and to have a family and a home. Â Pope Francis stressed that highÂ unemployment among youth is a crisis of theÂ family, âa true social plagueâ that leaves young people feeling useless. Â If the youth are deprived of hope, then the very future and hope of society and of the Church is jeopardized. Â Â Letâs therefore join Pope Francis in his general prayer campaign during September and in saying ânoâ to the throw-away culture and âyesâ to increased opportunities for âeducation and employmentÂ for young people everywhere, for they areÂ truly the future of humanity.Â

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis prayed the Angelus with pilgrims and tourists gathered in St Peterâs Square on Sunday. In remarks to the faithful ahead of the traditional prayer of Marian devotion, the Holy Father reflected on the Gospel reading for this Sunday, August 30, the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, taken from the 7th Chapter of the Holy Gospel according to St. Mark.Â The reading recounts the questions certain Scribes and Pharisees put to Our Lord, regarding His and the disciplesâ observance of certain long-standing customs â or their lack of observance â specifically concerning practices associated with ritual purity.
