Israeli and Palestinian leaders must “build bridges, not walls”, bishops from Europe and North America have said at the end of their annual visit to the Holy Land.
Catholic Charities USA has named a woman as its leader for the first time in its 105-year history.
French Jesuit journal Études has taken down a blog with anti-Catholic cartoons posted in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo (explanation in French).
And the BBC captures the moment Francis lost his zucchetto as he arrived in windswept Manila.
