WASHINGTON -- Saying there is an "urgent need" to address "the sin of racism" in the country and find solutions to it, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has established a new Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism and named one of the country's African-American Catholic bishops to chair it.
Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, USCCB president, initiated the committee Aug. 23 "to focus on addressing the sin of racism in our society, and even in our church, and the urgent need to come together as a society to find solutions."

Seventh-grader Milly Patterson taught her fellow students and even her principal a maneuver to get a look at the effect of the eclipse.
Milly interlocked her fingers, a trick her dad taught her, to create an image of the sun — a crescent moon shape as a result of the moon partially blocking it. Earlier, her principal at Holy Spirit School in Maryland Heights, Jill Gould, used a colander to create dozens of crescent shapes.
The Holy Spirit School students took two buses to St. Rose of Lima School in De Soto for the viewing. It was a wise decision, all agreed afterward.

At the initial moment of totality Aug. 21, excitement quickly spread among Visitation Academy students gathered on Ritter Field as they observed the rare solar eclipse.
They whooped and hollered then kept it up for the duration of the one-minute, seven-second celestial light show ... well, the non-light show. Only the sun's corona was visible as the moon blotted out the rest, a black ball inside a pulsating circle of light.
