    VETERANS DAY
    Fifty years ago this month, a 19-year-old draftee from St. Louis boarded a plane to Vietnam. During his 11 months in the Army, Jeff Eirvin shot no one, nor was he shot. Instead, he operated radios and switchboards at an aircraft repair base near the border with North Vietnam. But like any soldier, his life changed both for good and for bad.

  • It follows you everywhere
    Rosemary Kennedy is a mom of three teenagers. She initially made her children wait until the minimum age allowed on social media websites — around 14 or so. But that’s not where her involvement ended. 
  • The corporal works of mercy are how Jesus teaches us to put faith into action; they give us a model for how we must treat everyone, as if they were Christ in disguise. When we welcome the stranger,  we are giving welcome to Christ just as Abraham extended welcome, water and food to three men standing near his tent.

  • What is ‘evangelization’?
    Most Rev. Alexander Sample
    We hear a lot these days in the Church about evangelization. Pope St. John Paul II first introduced us to the idea that we need a “new evangelization” in our time, but many don’t know that Pope St. Paul VI had himself already spoken much about evangelization, especially in his Apostolic Exhortation, “Evangelii Nuntiandi” (1975). And of course Pope Francis speaks forcefully about the need for evangelization, emphasizing the call for each of us to become “missionary disciples.”
