Israel 1-1 DB Final[1]-1

More than a decade ago I received a gift that left an indelible mark on by soul, a trip to the Holy Land. One of the most memorable of my encounters was at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is built on the mount where our blessed Lord was crucified. As I entered into the huge and holy structure on a weekday afternoon the Church was abuzz with tourists. They scurried all around the place like mice looking for food. Some, true... Read More

Several weeks ago, I had the profound honor of briefly joining them in their mission by providing a number of talks and question and answer sessions on the spiritual life for the parents of Overbrook, their elementary school. My first talk — to the women — was on the... Read More

Carmelite sisters at the Movies – For Greater Glory – ¡Viva Cristo Rey!

The Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles rarely go to the movies, but this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: to be a part of a premiere showing of For Greater Glory. Seventy-five of our sisters immediately said “yes” to the gracious invitation of Archbishop Jose Gomez. Why? Because it was during those days—the days of the horrendous religious persecution in Mexico in the 1920s—that our community... Read More
