This Week Online: News from Haiti and the Middle East & Video on New Words

Our next print issue will be posted to the Web site on Monday June 14, but as promised we will keep adding Web-only content to the site during our summer biweekly schedule.

This week, we have expanded Signs of the Times to include a report on the future of agriculture in Haiti, and a summary of the working document for the upcoming church synod on the Middle East.

Also, Fr. Peter Schineller offers a video reflection on the human instinct to coin new words. Enjoy.
