Algebra and Easter: A Symphony in D Minus? — by Fr. Pat McNulty. Sister Clare Marie was trying to be gentle as she explained my D minus grade in Algebra, the only unacceptable grade I had ever gotten in high school. "My advice, Patrick, is that you avoid higher...

Building a New Springtime — by Paulette Curran. Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy, located in Barry’s Bay, approximately 14 km. from Madonna House, is an unusual school and one whose birth and growth we in Madonna House have been watching with joy and hope—and...
