Restoration

March 2008

The Day the Sun Danced — by Andorra Howard. Do miracles still happen? Last December, God graced a couple thousand of his people in Ghana with one that was magnificent and completely unexpected....

What is Life For? — by Fr. Denis Lemieux. This is kind of a tricky article to start. It’s something I’ve had on my heart, something I’ve wanted to write a Restoration article about for a while, but it’s not exactly an easy subject. I...

A Modern Martyr — In October 1993, the Groupe Islamique Armé (G.I.A.), a terrorist organization, freed the three French consuls they had kidnapped and gave all foreigners living in Algeria a terrifying message. They had one month to leave the country. When the deadline,...

Picking Up Marbles With My Toes — by Réjeanne George. It’s amazing where a badly broken ankle can lead you. Here I was staring at ten marbles spread out on a towel on the floor. "Lord," I said, "How could you have let this happen to me?"...

Combermere Diary (March 2008) — by Paulette Curran. In Madonna House, January—barring the unexpected—is the quietest time of year. Our numbers are down, for one thing. Some of our longterm guests always leave after Christmas, and not many new ones come until later in the...

An Easter Icon — by Pope Benedict XVI. The Easter icons of the Eastern Church show how Christ enters the world of the dead. He is clothed with light, for God is light.......

I’m OK? You’re OK? Happy Easter? — by Fr. Pat McNulty. "Did you read it?" My therapist was referring to the latest pop book in the field of psychology, I’m OK—You’re OK, which he thought would be good for me to read. This was in 1969, and...

One Man’s Scrap, Another Man’s Gold (March 2008) — By the time you read this column, we will have passed our Lenten journey. As we move forward in the light of the Resurrection, may all our hearts be wide open to receive the grace that awaits us. If you have never...
