1997

Christ the King

By REV. MSGR. SAM R. MIGLARESE The Gospels describe how Jesus, throughout his ministry, was consumed by a burning desire to announce to one and all the arrival of God’s Kingdom. This message consumed him. To fulfill his mission motivated all he was about. Mark’s Gospel describes how at the very beginning of his ministry, […]


‘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. […]


Tragedy speaks to own worst fears

By MARY HOOD HART It was a small article, tucked away on page 4C, but reading it, I got chills.

Boredom is not always bad

By MARY HOOD HART One summer when I was in college, I participated in a study program in Urbino, Italy. About 20 other students and I took classes in art history and Italian. Apart from studying in Urbino, the group made sightseeing trips to Florence, Venice, and Rome. The experience was one of the best […]


Alvare‚ urges pro-life advocates to ‘live the vision’

By JULIE DOWNS MONCKS CORNER After a day of talking policy and legal issues at the University of South Carolina, Helen Alvare entered the peaceful, tree-lined grounds of Mepkin Abbey Sept. 4 and addressed a topic suitable to the surroundings: spirituality. “I feel like an electric guitar amidst acoustic guitars,” she joked, thinking of the […]


The pointlessness of rushing

By MARY HOOD HART The other day, after running some errands, I stopped for gas at a self-service station. As it happened, the pump I selected wasn’t efficient. As I watched the numbers rotate slowly on the pump face, I became irritated by how slowly the gas was dispensed. If the urgency I was feeling […]
