  This time I’m batting .500. On Ash Wednesday, I bemoaned this year’s lack of broadcasting the Lenten penitential regulations which Catholics have observed through the centuries.

Guilted: a lenten moment

“Is this guy for real?” my husband asked.  We were watching Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge about the selfless medic who risked his life saving his fellow soldiers.  Two things stood out in that film about medic Desmond Doss: his determination to save lives and his utmost fidelity to the tenets of his faith.  So I… Continue Reading
