I Am Done…

I don’t make a practice of leaving the church before the Mass is over. The nuns said we had to stay to the Final Blessing: so it was taught, so it has been done.  I suppose I would leave if the priest preached outright heresy, damned the pro-life movement, or something like that. Al Matt,…

St. Joseph the Superhero

     In these days of super this and super that, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and now Captain Marvelette, it is obvious people are feeling the need for a super something to save them from the evils of life.  Sure the evils in superhero land are robots and space monsters, but inside of us…

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…
