Bishop Tyson of the Diocese of Yakima joined priests and seminarians in the fourth annual fundraising soccer match to support seminarian education. The priests ultimately defeated the seminarians by one penalty kick goal. Read more and see photos: http://cathext.in/1IX8NJ3

Inmates in a vocational program at a Philadelphia prison that Pope Francis will visit next month crafted a beautiful chair for him. http://cathext.in/1Ud8ltw

"At first I thought it was a little strange, honestly, like, why's he coming to a prison?" one inmate said. "But then you realize, he's coming to the prison basically to show people everybody in jail is not a criminal. And we need hope now just as much as anybody."
Evan Davis sanded the back of a large walnut throne, scrubbing in the direction of the grain, to smooth the seat Pope Francis will sit on when he visits next month.

Congratulations to Catholic Extension Chancellor Archbishop Blase Cupich, who received his pallium at Holy Name Cathedral today to officially symbolize his office as Archbishop of Chicago and his connection to the Church in Rome. Read his homily from the Mass: http://cathext.in/1LrOqEM

#ThrowbackThursday cover of Extension magazine from August 1960. Cover notes: "Willie the raccoon seems to be debating with his conscience on whether he should or shouldn't finish off the left-overs. Though there doesn't seem to be much left for him. Jack White's cover family has the right idea though--they know that a summer vacation isn't a vacation without God being along to share it with them."
