Good News, Good Possibilities

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Jul 19, 2013

I woke up this morning and suddenly realized how much good news we reported during the two weeks in which my role here at CatholicCulture.org was dominated by the virus. During this time, it fell to Phil Lawler (as usual) to make sure we kept our news service running no matter what. Consider this list of recent Catholic World News stories, praise God, and smile!

Bad news naturally and necessarily dominates all reporting. What has gone wrong is more jarring, and therefore more newsworthy, than all the things that go right. But good news often reveals important possibilities. Hopeful new strategies can arise from good news. We forget about it at our peril.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
