VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis urged governments and legislatures to do more to end modern-day slavery, calling for better laws and policies to prevent human trafficking, protect its victims and prosecute those responsible.

A moment of truth came to Ed Gillmore in 1990. It was the second year of the live Nativity on his farm and he didn’t know if he would have enough players to fill all the roles. Would anybody come to see their re-enactment of the night Jesus was born?

God brings pastor from Kenya to Kenosha

The Rev. Gilbert Mwachia will tell you up front the only reason he is where he is today is because God told him to be here.

From his call to Christian ministry in Kenya, his establishment of Faith Celebration Ministries International there, to his move to the United States over two years ago to begin FaithLife Victory International in Kenosha, his steady faith and trust in God has led him in every aspect of his life.

Vatican mystery: Where did gay welcome originate?

6

VATICAN CITY — It’s one of the great mysteries of the meeting on family life taking place behind closed doors at the Vatican this week: Just where did the authors of a draft report come up with such ground-breaking language that gays had gifts to offer the church and that even homosexual partnerships had merit?

Officially speaking, the draft report was a synthesis of the interventions from more than 200 bishops, a starting point for small working groups to propose amendments, elaborations, additions and subtractions to the drafting committee preparing a final report that will be released today.
