The Catholic Conference of Illinois produces occasional videos on public policy issues important to the Church. Our YouTube channel can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/CatholicConfIL.
We also post videos of Catholic interest.
Pope Francis calls us to pray for journalists during the month of October, asking that they be motivated by a respect for the truth and a strong sense of ethics.
September's prayer intention focuses on solidarity, the tenet of Catholic Social Teaching that asks everyone to contribute to the common good and create a society that puts the human person at its center.
August's prayer video from Pope Francis focuses on the fraternity of sports and the key role it plays in breaking down walls among cultures. It's a fitting issue for this month, since the Summer Olympic Games are being held in Rio de Janiero.
Pope Francis in his July 2016 prayer video asks us to respect the identity and traditions of all Indigenous people.
