Attack on Anchorage cathedral poses age-old challenge
It gives one pause that vandals would attempt to burn down an outdoor shrine to the Blessed Virgin, smash the windows of the Dominican priests' vehicle, barge into the sanctuary and throw down statues of Mary, Joseph and Jesus, while stripping the holy altar and overturning the archbishop's chair and other furnishings. Add to this that at least one Dominican friar has also been punched in the face and attempts have been made to break into the priests' residence.

Move forward in Cuba
Following half a century of hostility, and guided by the intervention of Pope Francis, the United States and Cuba have agreed to try to become good neighbors. The detente announced between the two nations on Dec. 17 is welcomed news to end a year that witnessed too much hatred.

Muslims are right to be angry
Killing in response to insult, no matter how gross, must be unequivocally condemned. That is why what happened in Paris cannot be tolerated. But neither should we tolerate the kind of intolerance that provoked this violent reaction.

Rethinking Cuba
When President Obama announced that the United States would be working toward full bilateral relations with Cuba and enhanced economic ties, our staff was impressed to hear that our supreme pontiff, Pope Francis, was  largely credited for back-channel work that led to the decision.

Thankful for immigrants

A transformative moment
It is our hope that Catholics will be a strong presence in the new frontier of racial justice, working to change deep societal issues that are behind the violence in Ferguson and Staten Island.

Transcending categories
Two events took place a week apart 25 years ago, one jubilant, one indescribably tragic. Both affirmed the church’s abiding mission of furthering freedom and justice, which transcends political classification.
