The Lenten veil

During Lent, many parishes cover their crucifix, images and statues with veils. While a curious custom, shadowing the sacred in God’s dwelling is ancient.

We all fight the battle between good and evil

While this may seem like heresy to some, I didn’t have plans to see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

However, Jim came home so […]
