Hispanic students express fear, uncertainty in wake of immigration clampdown

Countless immigrants across the country and here in western Oregon live in a climate of fear sparked by actions in the new administration, including President Donald Trump’s plan to build a U.S.-Mexico wall, his executive order on immigration enforcement and a number of highly public raids.

Alongside the concerns of adult immigrants are the worries of their children. At dinner tables and in classrooms, young Latinos are trying to make sense of overheard conversations, the onslaught of immigration-related stories disseminated by news outlet and activist, and — foremost — the instability in their families.

Tips for parents

On the blog New Liturgical Movement, Peter Kwasniewski lamented what he termed “spiritual illiteracy” among many Catholics. Who can argue? I think most Catholics, myself included, feel they have an inadequate knowledge of the faith.

Alien: Covenant
NEW YORK (CNS) — Once you've seen one vicious extraterrestrial gnaw its way out of a human body from the inside, you've seen 'em all. Or so at least the jaded — or squeamish — moviegoer might be tempted to think.

And yet, the success of the durable "Alien" franchise, which dates all the way back to 1979, and was last added to by the 2012 reboot "Prometheus," would seem to argue otherwise.

'Blackwood Crossing' a top choice for a spiritually rich video game

NEW YORK (CNS) — When you hear that a video game is about death, certain awful images quickly come to mind: stolen "Grand Theft Auto" cars being wrecked; a first-person shooter dispatching the enemy; ultraviolent war-themed titles.

Rather, this immersive, strange yet beautiful game is about how two young orphans deal with the demise of their parents.
