Truth and Love in “The Two Popes”

Truth and Love in “The Two Popes”

I recently went with a friend to see the movie, “The Two Popes.”  I certainly was intrigued to see how the two very different men would be portrayed.  In the very beginning the audience is told that the movie is “inspired” by true events, but most of it is fictionalized.  The imagined conversations between the two men take place at…

Following the Star

Following the Star

When I was a little girl I used to wonder what the words “traverse afar” meant.  Every year we would sing that Christmas carol, “We Three Kings” about these wise men who followed a star.  Where’d they come from, how far was it, why did they make this long journey?  Of course, over the years I learned that these men…

A Wish of Peace in the New Year

A Wish of Peace in the New Year

During Advent we often hear in the Scripture readings from Isaiah, the prophet, who paints his vision for the future, a compelling vision that has often been named “the peaceable kingdom.”  He speaks of a vision of a new heaven and new earth; of life coming out of destruction; a shoot sprouts from the seemingly dead stump of the tree;…

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

A few months ago I wrote in this blog about the Jesuits final concert being a spiritual experience for me.  Last night I went with a friend to see the movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.  Many of my friends had already seen it and said it was worthwhile.  Indeed, they were right! Of course it is not hard…

Passing On a Legacy

Passing On a Legacy

The Sisters of Divine Providence from Allison Park, PA  (former St. Louis province) sponsor a homeless shelter in Bridgeton, MO named Room at the Inn.  It provides homeless women and families temporary shelter in what was the former province’s headquarters.   This ministry began in 1992 when the Salvation Army approached the Sisters for needed space and the fourth floor of…

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving Thoughts

The month of November holds many different themes:  saints, souls, veterans, and of course, Thanksgiving.  Each year as the season of autumn surrounds us with colorful leaves on trees, and farmers harvesting their crops, I am reminded of my teaching days and the reading of Winnie-the-Pooh to my second graders.   There is a quote from A.A. Milne which has stuck…
