    This article about a legendary female pope, or popesse, appealed to me as a Catholic who has learned a lot about Church history in nine years of Catholic schooling. A pope had a lot of influence in the Middle Ages as the head of the highly powerful Church, and the idea of an accidental female pope interested me due to the low status of women at the time. I also enjoy reading stories about mysterious legends and myths. Noble wrote this article intending to explain where her story came from,…

    Environmental issues have been the talk of the town by many public figures recently, but it does not always seem to “stick” in the minds of the viewers. Both Pope Francis and Naomi Klein discuss the topic in great detail, but take different approaches in convincing their readers. Klein seems to evokes a great deal of negativity in her book, to the point where it questions the reader’s own actions and almost makes them feel that they are partially to blame for the current state of Earth. Pope…

    How can a group like the Vatican keep such a large population of the church together and so strong for over 2000 years?

By incorporating these four words the church is able to stay so magnificent and in unison with itself.

    Bernie Sanders, the well-known senator from Vermont, writes, “Let us understand that when we stand together, we will always win. When men and women stand together for justice, we win. When black, white and Hispanic people stand together for justice, we win.” This quote truly shows the power of standing for justice. Like Sanders points out, we are “winning” by seeking justice, and by “winning” we are creating the Kingdom of God. But even more, when we stand together no matter the race, we are…
