• How a modern DC art exhibit is learning womanhood from Mary

    A new art exhibit in Washington, D.C., hopes to revive a sense of womanhood exemplified in the Virgin Mary, as depicted by Renaissance and Baroque artists.

  • Dido and Aeneas/Bluebeard’s Castle at the L.A. Opera

    I’m enthralled by the late opera singer Maria Callas — her voice, her life. I also have a thing for the somewhat obscure German contralto Emmi Leisner (1885-1958). But perhaps like many of us, I’ve always thought of opera as a high-brow version of the musical, which, with the exception of Fred Astaire movies, I pretty much can’t stand.

  • ‘A Spectacular Triumph’

    Breathtaking, inspiring and artistically engaging, “Spectacular Rubens: the Triumph of the Eucharist,” a new exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum, features the work of master artist Peter Paul Rubens told in both elaborate oil sketches and monumental original tapestries woven in the early 1620s for a Franciscan convent in Spain.

  • Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden: Metaphors for our lives

    Recently I made a field trip to a gem of a spot that should be better known: the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont. 

  • ‘Faith & Hope Beyond Prison Walls’ honors artists

    The eighth annual Faith & Hope Beyond Prison Walls art show in downtown Los Angeles honored acclaimed artist John August Swanson, along with Niko Galvez, Lucinda Thomas and the “Galindro Girls.”

  • ‘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.

Jean Beliveau, RIP

REV. RONALD ROLHEISER, OMI

Jean Beliveau was more than an athlete, though certainly he was a one-in-a-million athlete. The record of his achievements almost defies belief. He played in the National Hockey League for 20 seasons and retired with 10 championship rings.
