Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, auxiliary bishop of Seattle and chairman of the USCCB's Committee on Migration, stated July 7, that the Catholic community “will continue to push” lawmakers to pass immigration reform legislation this year, regardless of political commentary that Congress is unlikely to act this year.

2. Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, president of the USCCB, was the homilist at the closing Mass of the Fortnight for Freedom. He said, "You and I are gathered here today because we know that there are real threats to religious freedom. We're gathered to pray because of a certain urgency. There are threats throughout the world. (And) this assault on religious freedom is also sadly at our doorstep."
3. Keep up with Pope Francis with the Pope App 2.0.
