Are You Ready for the End? — by Fr. David May. At the turn of the century there was in the air in certain Catholic and non-Catholic circles an expectation that God was about to do a Great Thing. For some, the cup of evil seemed so...

The loss of our beloved Holy Father — by Fr. David May. At this time when we are all surely feeling the loss of our beloved Holy Father, even as we do rejoice in his going home to the Father, I want to pass on a word that...

The Only Path to Liberation — by Pope John Paul II. To be committed to the new evangelization means that we are convinced that we have something of value to offer to the human family at the dawn of the new millennium. All of us must...

Combermere Diary (April 2005) — by Paulette Curran. By the time you read this, at least those of you who live in the United States and Canada, it will still be early spring in this part of the world. But even now, when it is...

Notes from Near and Far: Belgium — by Malcolm Delaney, MH Belgium. Ahhhh! Springtime in Belgium: birds singing, marsh marigolds blooming, and little green spikes emerging from black earth, promising snowdrops and crocuses and vegetable gardens to weed. Spring came a tad early this year. But who...

Notes from Near and Far: Arizona — by Sofia Segal, La Casa de Nuestra Senora. Several months have gone by since I arrived here last July. Is it too late for me to write my first impressions? Probably, but I will give you the impressions that are...

One Man’s Scrap, Another Man’s Gold (April 2005) — Christ is risen! Truly he is risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Having been nourished over the years with Easter life, we come to you with joy and enthusiasm, and we rejoice with you in the incomparable gift of the graces we...
