• Vocational formation and the new evangelization: Ongoing discernment

    The 35-year old lawyer asks himself, “Do I leave the job that I love, sell my condo, and give up the life that I have been living to enter the Seminary? After all, I have been thinking about the priesthood since grade school.”

  • The progressive case against assisted suicide

    I've spent my professional life fighting to improve the lives of those living with a disability. I've pushed for services, treatment and medical coverage for those with disabilities while helping them establish independent lives.

    Tens of thousands of children fleeing desperate conditions have entered the United States asking for help. And many more are coming. What kind of welcome is being offered to them? The answer to that question is still largely undetermined.

  • Pope’s challenge: Don’t be complacent on clerical sexual abuse

    When Pope Francis met with six victims/survivors of sexual abuse July 7 in Rome, he showed empathy and compassion for victims/survivors both in attendance and in those not as he begged their forgiveness.

  • A visit from the goddess of night

    There are few more insightful studies into the spirituality of aging than the late James Hillman's book, “The Force of Character.”

  • What we do and why we do it
