The federal government carried out an unethical and potentially illegal execution this morning. Attorney General Barr and every government actor involved in this travesty must account for their actions. I’m calling on Congress to launch an investigation and hold public hearings. https://t.co/BHLQWtQvgM

...is the alarming claim of this analysis by Chris Damian, an attorney, writer, and community organizer, of the brief submitted by the USCCB to the Supreme Court, on "ministerial exceptions."

The USCCB's brief "fails to muster even a half-hearted objection to firing someone simply because they are gay, even if they are celibate." I.e., the brief says the church should be able to fire even gay people living according to church teaching. This... https://t.co/Zg6DCrij1P

Kateri Tekakwitha, informally known as “Lily of the Mohawks,” was the first #NativeAmerican of North America to be canonized. She is also the patron saint of #ecology. We honor her legacy as an Algonquin–Mohawk laywoman by listening to the cry of creation and committing to act. https://t.co/D84ijjZ625

Gospel: Many of the towns Jesus lived in or visited are still flourishing: Bethlehem, Nazareth and Jerusalem of course, but also towns like Jericho, Cana and Nain. But the 3 towns he curses in today's Gospel--Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum--are in ruins (Mt 11). Just saying. https://t.co/lcirVqhG1r

Quoted @AP

BREAKING: US carries out first federal execution in 17 years, putting to death a man who killed an Arkansas family in 1996. https://t.co/pEGVKghEu3

The death penalty is immoral and "inadmissible," as the Catechism says, because every life, from the unborn child in the womb to the inmate on death row, is sacred. The taking of a life is always wrong. And the taking of a life to punish the taking of a life is also wrong. https://t.co/NiqDihlDBq

On the Day of Judgment we will not be judged for our ideas, but for the compassion we have shown to others.

Quoted @carolmaczim

At 2 a.m. today Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal executions can continue. They overturned a trial court order blocking execution of #DanielLewisLee yesterday; he will likely be executed this morning according to @tribstar.

Every life is sacred, from the child in the womb to the inmate on death row. This is why the Catholic Church considers the death penalty inadmissible. https://t.co/lZbOR9QmGX

Wearing masks is pro life. Asking others to wear a mask is a way to protect other people and save more lives. This man died trying to save other people's lives. He is a martyr. https://t.co/lmLBK5rwmP

Don't let the fact that others may not see what you're doing dissuade you from doing the right thing, even if it's difficult. Love, forgive, show mercy and practice compassion, care especially for the poor and the marginalized, in any way that you can.

Gospel: Jesus tell us, "Whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because he is a disciple...he will surely not lose his reward" (Mt 10). God sees even the smallest, most hidden, most private acts of charity that we do, even if others do not... https://t.co/m089DEhlOM

Dear friends: I wanted to recommend a lovely new book (and neither author nor publisher asked me to do so). Just thought you'd like something wonderful to read: Ron Hansen's "Hotly in Pursuit of the Real: Notes Toward a Memoir." A review of sorts here: https://t.co/W1nsXY1YUK https://t.co/DdxKTz9NL5

Gospel: In today's Gospel, Jesus gets into a boat, pushes out into the Sea of Galilee, and preaches the parables to the crowds on the shore (Mt 13). Today that place is known as the "Bay of Parables," and a visit helps you understand what he was doing. https://t.co/ZAeSJfYPQU
