VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis said he stands with the U.S. bishops who recently condemned the Trump Administration's policy on immigration that has led to children being held in government shelters while their parents are sent to federal prisons.
"I am on the side of the bishops' conference," Pope Francis said in an interview. "Let it be clear that in these things, I respect [the position of] the bishops' conference."
When it comes to Donovan Catholic graduate Alyssa Wilson, greatness seems to have no ceiling.
The most prodigious thrower in New Jersey high school history needed just one year of college to put forth the greatest throwing performance in USA Track & Field Junior National Championships history. As a true freshman for the University of California, Los Angeles, Wilson made history the weekend of June 15-17 by becoming the first junior woman to qualify for Team USA in three throwing events. It is Wilson’s final year in junior competition, which is for ages 20 and younger.
