ROME. While retired Pope Benedict XVI said organization and governance are not his strong suits, he also said, "I am unable to see myself as a failure."

In a book-length interview with the German author Peter Seewald, Pope Benedict said that when he resigned he had the "peace of someone who had overcome difficulty" and "could tranquilly pass the helm to the one who came next."

COLORADO SPRINGS. In its 130-plus year history, St. Mary’s High School has always been inspired by the Catholic faith that provides the school’s foundation. This year that faith is being practiced in a unique way through St. Mary’s new Family Prayer Rotation.

En cada año de elecciones presidenciales desde 1976, los obispos de los Estados Unidos hemos publicado una declaración recordándoles a los católicos sus responsabilidades políticas. La actual declaración de los obispos sobre el tema se titula "Formando la conciencia para ser ciudadanos fieles" (FCFC, por sus siglas en inglés). A partir de esta edición, me gustaría presentar y comentar acerca de este importante documento mientras nos preparamos para votar en noviembre.

COMMENTARY

By BISHOP ROBERT BARRON

After perusing the latest Pew Study on why young people are leaving the active practice of Christianity, I confess that I just sighed in exasperation.

I don’t doubt for a moment the sincerity of those who responded to the survey, but the reasons they offer for abandoning Christianity are just so uncompelling. That is to say, any theologian, apologist, or evangelist worth his salt should be able easily to answer them. And this led me (hence the sigh) to the conclusion that "we have met the enemy and it is us."

For many young Catholics the defining moment of the summer took place in Poland, where Pope Francis joined over a million teens and young adults for World Youth Day. Although we Little Sisters of the Poor spend our lives in the service of the elderly rather than the young, we followed the festivities in Krakow with great interest. For us, the most exciting moment of the event came at the very end, when Pope Francis told young people that the best way to prepare for the next World Youth Day is to spend time talking to their grandparents!

9-16-16 BLESSINGS IN BLOOM: Russian sage There are good reasons that we see Russian sage planted in many yards and gardens around our diocese. Beauty, fragrance, hardiness, long-blooming, texture, and low maintenance are just to name a few. This wispy perennial is a perfect choice for most Colorado landscapes.

In every presidential election year since 1976, the bishops of the United States have published a statement reminding Catholics of their political responsibilities. The current statement of the bishops on this subject is entitled Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship (FCFC). Beginning with this column, I would like to present and comment on this important document as we prepare to vote in November.

FEATURED MOVIE REVIEW: Sully NEW YORK. Putting Tom Hanks in the cockpit as everybody’s favorite aviator, US Airways Capt. Chesley Sullenberger, and bringing Clint Eastwood on board to direct him certainly sounds like a formula for high-flying success. And so it proves with "Sully" (PG-13, Warner Bros.), Eastwood’s satisfying adaptation of Sullenberger’s memoir (co-written with Jeffrey Zaslow) "Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters."
