Nearly 700 Catholic women from around the nation gathered in Atlanta to celebrate 99 years of service to the Church in August 2019.


This year’s theme, Caring for God’s Creation, showcased NCCW’s continuing efforts to address important needs of our times through spirituality, leadership and service.

 A gentile man named Naaman was commander of the king of Aram’s army. He was very successful in his raids on Israel, which pleased the king very much.


Since the Israelites did not always follow God, sometimes God allowed their enemies to be victorious against them. That is why Naaman was so successful.


Even though Naaman was powerful and victorious, he had one problem: He was a leper.

Recentemente visité el Monumento Nacional por la Paz y la Justicia, y el Museo Legacy en Montgomery, Alabama. El sombrío monumento recuerda a más de 4,400 hombres, mujeres y niños afroamericanos que fueron linchados en los Estados Unidos entre 1877 y 1950. Estas víctimas fueron ahorcadas, quemadas vivas, abaleadas, ahogadas y golpeadas hasta la muerte por turbas de personas blancas que ignoraron la ley y a menudo actuaron en reacción a cargos falsos.

On a number of occasions over the past six and a half years, Pope Francis has called his listeners to live out the Gospel with “parrhesia.” “Parrhesia” is not a word that you hear every day. So why is Pope Francis using it and what is he trying communicate when does?

I was amazed to see in the Aug. 1 issue of the Southern Cross that the new altar at St. Teresa Church in Albany came from Mount de Chantal Academy in Wheeling, West Virginia.

The articles in the Southern Cross (Aug. 15, 2019) concerning the shootings in El Paso and Dayton miss the mark about what’s happening in our culture. Mrs. Hoods’ article unwittingly points to it though. She mentions civilized society, as if we are one, but we are not. Our technology and level of education does not mean we are civilized.

Again, the United States is dealing with two deadly shootings that have left many people in this country devastated and asking why. Unfortunately, I am reading in the Southern Cross paper only platitudes from the U.S. Bishops and I was surprised how little thought was given in their response to the two tragic shootings. As a Catholic community we should look deeper into it and reading some articles I noted that Dr. Gregory Jantz has found some disturbing trends.

Dear Editor,


I first wish to say how much I appreciate receiving the Southern Cross. We in the Diocese of Savannah are most fortunate to be able to keep abreast of what is happening in our Church and how we relate to its teachings (Pope Francis, bishops, et al.).
