Supreme Court justices attend Mass before new term

WASHINGTON (AP) - This year's Catholic Mass before the Supreme Court's new term has become an appeal to the other deadlocked branches of government.

A majority of the court, including Chief Justice John Roberts, attended Sunday's Mass at St. Matthew's Cathedral in Washington, as did members of Congress and White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.

The four other Supreme Court justices who attended were Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.

Amid the government shutdown, Bishop Kevin Farrell criticized petty partisanship and polarizing rhetoric that he said makes it seem like "`I Did It My Way' has now become the national anthem."

The visiting bishop of Dallas also urged government officials to remove obstacles to welcoming immigrants.
