• ‘Art of the incarcerated’ show set Oct. 4 at Homeboy

    A variety of artwork from current and former prisoners will be featured at the “Art of the Incarcerated” exhibit, to be held Oct. 4 (11 a.m.-5 p.m.) at Homeboy Industries, Los Angeles.

  • The harmony and order of bees

    Earlier this year, I visited Madonna House: the lay community in Combermere, Ontario, founded by the late Russian emigré and mystic Catherine Doherty.

  • Country music in pictures: Genuine feelings amid the artifice

    I’m a country western fan from way back. In the ’70s, I hitchhiked to Nashville to eat at Merchants Lunch, troll the record bins at Ernest Tubbs’, and drink at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, the iconic bar in which Willie Nelson reputedly wrote “Crazy.”

  • Pompeii: Experiencing its life and death

    A warm summer morning had given way to an even warmer early afternoon in the Mediterranean coastal city of Pompeii on 24 August in the year 79 when, six miles to the northwest, the big mountain called Vesuvius began to rumble.

  • Cathedral exhibit spotlights Caruso Center stained glass

    “The USC Caruso Catholic Center Church: Stained Glass Windows from Conception to Installation” is the focus of a new exhibit at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

  • ‘Anne Frank’ at the Museum of Tolerance

    I first bought “The Diary of Anne Frank” for a dime at a church rummage sale in North Hampton, New Hampshire.

  • Theater: Death in the Vatican revisited

    The house lights dimmed and the action of “The Last Confession,” playing in a limited run at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, immediately made me think of New York Yankees great Yogi Berra. “It’s déjà vu all over again.” 

  • ‘This is my body’: The thin line between passion and pathology

    I’m spellbound by the Incarnation: by our fragile, mortal bodies; by the thought of what happens to us after we die. So in Philadelphia recently, the first place I hit was the Mütter Museum.

  • Songfest at the Colburn School

    The Colburn School is a world-class performing arts school located downtown on Grand Avenue, kitty-corner from Disney Hall. I can’t say the number of times I have trudged or driven there to drink from the cornucopia of delights, mostly free, that spill from its doors. Faculty recitals, student recitals, Sunday afternoon chamber music in Zipper Hall. Lectures on ballet. An Adult Studies division.

  • Natural History Museum: Pollinator Garden, creation awareness

    Certain phrases evoke the pilgrim urge: Franciscan Appalachian Hermitage. Wayside Chapel. Summer Cottage. But nothing could be a clearer invitation to drop everything, go sit on a bench in the sun, and ponder for a while than the phrase “pollinator garden.”
