COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: In the Gospel, we see the generosity of the poor widow: She didn’t just share some of her abundance; she gave God what she had. The scribes considered that they were doing God a favor by serving him; the widow understood that God was the one doing the favors. That’s the…

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: A letter by St Boniface The careful shepherd watches over Christ’s flock. In her voyage across the ocean of this world, the Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life’s different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship but to keep her on her course….
