This Week


Peace agenda

As the Vatican gathered 11 Nobel peace laureates, plus NATO officials, ambassadors and peace activists to discuss nuclear disarmament at a Nov. 10 - 11 summit, there was no doubt about the church’s position.


Funds for Rohingya

As the federal government announced a matching fund to help more than 600,000 Rohingya refugees, Canada’s Catholic humanitarian aid and development agency was already on the ground in Bangladesh delivering aid to desperate people in Cox’s Bazar.


Shepherd of the universe

“We live in a distant suburb of our 100,000+ light-year-wide Milky Way galaxy,” writes Michael Dougherty. “Two trillion galaxies with billions of stars each, which in turn having planetary systems spinning around them, leave us with mind-boggling planetary numbers.” Can we imagine the God spark touching creatures across the universe?
