An Egyptian obelisk stands in the middle of Saint Peter Square in Rome. As old as the basilica is, the mighty obelisk is approximately 3,500 years older, and has stood by the Vatican Hill for 2,000 years. The Roman Emperor Caligula transferred this obelisk from the city of Heliopolis to Rome and installed it in the middle of the Vatican Circus in AD 37. This new sports arena was built on the side of the Vatican Hill outside the city of Rome.

“Nearly 70% of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want the United States to take ‘aggressive’ action to combat climate change -- but only a third would support an extra tax of $100 a year to help.” This lead from a Reuters’ story questions how seriously we really comprehend the climate crisis.

Q. I have not been to confession in at least 10 years. I want to go, but I have no idea what to say. How am I to remember all of my sins and the number of times that I have committed them? (Columbus, Ohio)

 

A. Don’t worry; the priest is there to help you, and he will try to make things easy. (He will also have heard the confessions of a number of others in your same situation.)
