Morning Catholic must-reads: 23/09/13

We should “look upon our brothers and sisters with the gaze of Our Lady“, Pope Francis said at the Shrine of Our Lady of Bonaria in Sardinia yesterday (full text, full video).

At an earlier meeting with the unemployed the Pope delivered a strongly worded attack on the injustices of the global economy (short video, analysis by John Allen).

The Pope also condemned a suicide bomb attack on a church in Peshawar, Pakistan, that killed at least 78 people.

Archbishop Leo Cushley said the Pope had asked him “to be ‘merciful’ in my ministry here” as he was installed as head of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh on Saturday (video).

Pope Francis appointed Archbishop Beniamino Stella as prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy on Saturday, replacing Cardinal Mauro Piacenza (analysis by John Allen).

Jimmy Akin, John Allen, Matthew Archbold, Michael Coren, Fr Dwight Longenecker, Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Fr James Martin SJ, Nathaniel Peters and George Weigel continue to reflect on last week’s papal interview.
