  • 'Drinking with the Saints' – new book encourages Catholic fellowship, good spirits

  • Doctrine divides while justice unites? One author's new take on an old claim

    As the Church prepares to conclude its celebration of the 50th anniversary of Vatican II later this year, one book is taking a hard look at the council's vision of ecumenism in a world where attitudes toward social justice are constantly in flux.

  • Called to the outskirts

    Pope Francis is calling us to the outskirts. That’s a good thing to ponder during Lent.

    We all like to stay within our “comfort zones.” We all like to hang out with people who buy the same books, watch the same movies, make roughly the same amount of money. We want people who validate us, not people who threaten, challenge or annoy us.

     

     

  • Julia Alvarez at the Catholic Literary Imagination Conference

  • Loyola Marymount Institute for Faith, Culture and the arts

    “Adding on to what my predecessors started, I began to change what we were doing. Our mission became an interdisciplinary and open dialogue about faith, culture and the arts, all the while representing the mission of the Marymount tradition and the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary. Over time, we were able to bring in a Nobel laureate, an artist-in-residence, and a publisher.”

  • Martin Sheen and Sister Rose: Activist Catholics

    Sister Rose Pacatte, a member of the Daughters of St. Paul, is the director of the Pauline Center for Media Studies in Los Angeles.

    In her recently-released book, “Martin Sheen: Pilgrim on the Way” (Liturgical Press), she details well-known actor Sheen’s early life: one of 10 kids, a mother who died at 48 while saying the rosary, a hard-working father who was loving but stinted on the compliments. Many of the children, including Martin, suffered from alcoholism.

  • Dana Gioia and the future of the Catholic literary imagination

    Dana Gioia is a poet and critic who served as chair-man of the National Endowment for the Arts. He is the author, most recently, of “Pity the Beautiful,” his fourth volume of poems.

    “I was raised in a Catholic family in a mostly Mexican neighborhood and attended 12 years of Catholic school. Consequently, my whole early worldview was Catholic, and it seemed consonant with the great art I encountered — Dante, Michelangelo, Mozart, Shakespeare.”

    He also has a genius for connecting people. To that end, he’s spearheaded a conference called “The Future of the Catholic Literary Imagination” that will take place at the University of Southern California Feb. 19-21.
