Finding God on the journey

By JULIE DOWNS It is hard not to be overwhelmed and moved by the faith while visiting Rome. I should know. I tried hard not to be. I joined Bishop David B. Thompson, the Cathedral Choir and more than 180 others on a pilgrimage to this holy city. In the ensuing conflict between my generational […]


Diocese of Charleston honors the ‘Little Flower’

By PAUL A. BARRA CHARLESTON — The bishop of Charleston has his own take on some sage advice given to St. Augustine by St. Ambrose 1,600 years ago. For Bishop David B. Thompson, his 33rd visit to the other Holy City last month occasioned an urge within him to replicate his latest Rome experience at […]


Annual assembly provides spiritual guidance to clergy

By NANCY CZABALA SAVANNAH, Ga. Bishop David B. Thompson and priests from the Diocese of Charleston, along with clergy throughout the Atlanta Province, attended the Provincial Assembly in Savannah Oct. 27-29. This year’s speaker for the annual Assembly of Bishops and Priests was Dr. Robert J. Wicks, a nationally recognized speaker and author, who spends […]


Forgiveness is serious business

The following is a homily given by Msgr. James A. Carter, pastor of Christ Our King Church in Mount Pleasant, at Masses at the parish Nov. 15 and 16. The scene is outside a supermarket in the middle of a torrential downpour. Under a canopy where shopping carts should be unloaded, a man waits in […]


Faith community focuses on people

By JULIE DOWNS COLUMBIA The Diocese of Charleston’s newest faith community may not have a building, but the lack of real estate provides a unique opportunity to focus on what really makes a church: its people. Sister Clare Reinert, SSND, was named pastoral administrator of the Catholic Community Northeast of Columbia in August. There is […]


Catholic and Episcopal youth combine to provide assistance

By CHRISTINE CRUMBO COLUMBIA — As drying clothes swayed gently on a neighbor’s line, a Columbia woman murmured thanks to God on the Feast of Christ the King for the circle of friends gathered with her outside her back door. The group had met only a few weeks before, as the result of a chance […]


Interpreting Luke’s Gospel subject of prayer, study day

By TIM BULLARD CONWAY Are you hungry? A hunger and thirst for knowledge about the Book of Luke enlightened study group members one Saturday in Conway about the importance of the meal and other topics in this Gospel. Home-cooked meals, evangelization and literary style all enrich the writings of Luke in the New Testament, participants […]


‘Go out to all the world and tell the Good News’

By REV. MSGR. ROBERT J. KELLY As we look forward to the celebration of World Mission Sunday Oct. 19, we realize that the “missionary spirit” of the diocese is alive and well! Because of the strong belief in the fact that “God wills everyone to be saved, and to come to know the truth,” you […]


Irish children build friendships, break down walls

By RANDLE CHRISTIAN COLUMBIA Ireland’s centuries-old troubles must have seemed like something from another world to a group of Belfast children who spent their summer in South Carolina. They came from Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods resting under an uneasy peace but still policed by gun-toting soldiers and divided by “peace lines” made of corrugated steel. […]


Word spreading about upcoming Guadalupe pilgrimage

By PAUL A. BARRA EDISTO ISLAND If word-of-mouth is truly the best advertising, then the 1997 diocesan pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe must be a marketing managees dream come true. Pilgrims who journeyed to Mexico City last year are still buoyed by their experiences. And they don’t mind talking about it. […]
