The King of Kings

November 29, 2023 Featured Today Comments Off on The King of Kings

Cindy Paslawski We are at the end of the Church year. We began with Advent a year ago, commemorating the time awaiting the coming of the Christ and we are ending these weeks later with a vision of the future, a vision of Christ the King of the Universe on His throne before us all. I sang in the schola in grade school and thanks to our Polish pastor, traditional hymns were a constant even after the Second Vatican Council was misinterpreted into musical chaos. The Feast of Christ the King was always my favorite, I loved the music, the Christus Vincit , the glorious vestments, incense, all of it a peek of heaven. It was a fitting celebration of…Continue Reading

A Book Review… Welcome To The Big Tent

September 11, 2023 Featured Today Comments Off on A Book Review… Welcome To The Big Tent

By PEGGY MOEN Catholics now are reading more Scripture than they did in earlier generations, possibly as a reflection of Vatican II and greater ecumenical involvement. But I think the increased reading might reflect another reality — the need for the consolation of the Word of God in trying times, with so many people moving further and further away from the Almighty.If you would like an incentive toward studying Scripture more regularly, read Dave Mishur’s book The Big Tent, available at Amazon.com. Mishur also wrote The Jesus Diary. Similar to The Jesus Diary, in The Big Tent, an ancient parchment bears the account of an eyewitness who trailed the apostles and recorded their activities in his diary. We don’t know…Continue Reading

A Thank-You Note In Verse

September 10, 2023 Featured Today Comments Off on A Thank-You Note In Verse

By DONALD DeMARCO I am a poet of profligate propensity. I have written poems for my wife, children, grandchildren, and friends. But also for students, nurses, doctors, cleaning ladies, secretaries, waitresses, postal deliverers, real estate agents, and bank tellers. And that is the short list. The poems are thank-you notes in verse and they are always gratefully receivedA thank-you note is fine, but does not achieve what a poem can. The camera picks up a visible image. But a poem can capture something that is invisible and reminds the beneficiary of something that is true, though inexpressible. A generous expression is infallibly matched by a grateful response. The eye of the poet, unlike the lens of the camera, captures a…Continue Reading
