The long-term health of our society depends on strong marriages

In late September, I attended a gathering of the FOCUS alumni living in the Kansas City metro area.

FOCUS is an acronym for the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. FOCUS is a Catholic collegiate outreach whose mission is to share the hope and joy of the Gospel of Jesus with college and university students, equipping them for a lifetime of Christ- centered evangelization, discipleship and friendship.

Synodality is listening to the Lord speak through one another

By Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann
