• 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.”

  • Bishop Montgomery photo student earns national recognition

    When high school senior Angela Francis takes a picture, she captures not only a particular moment in time, but also “the feelings and emotions of her subjects, whether she’s taking pictures of students having fun at a school dance or during an athletic competition,” according to teacher John Hong, Francis’ yearbook and school newspaper advisor at Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance.

  • Soul Stirring: African-American Self-Taught Artists from the South

    We should all know about the California African-American Museum of Art.

Growing in our knowledge of Jesus Christ

It’s back-to-school time, a great time of year.

I know many of you have been getting ready for the new school year with your kids and grandchildren. All of the archdiocese, confirmation and religious education programs are starting up again in our parishes.
