A Glimpse of Providence - Deacon Douglas McManaman

A great man - David Warren

A last assignment - Cathy Collins

I called him August 1st of last summer to say good-bye. It was a call I'd put off for weeks, voicing what three unsent letters wanted to convey. How can one say a final earthly goodbye to a good friend, a former teacher, a magnificent priest, now dying of cancer?  Read more...

A Life of Purity - Philip Lawler

She spent her life caring for the sick and dying, yet she could not hide her impatience with the doctors whose efforts only postponed her own death. She was a virgin, yet millions called her Mother. She disdained the limelight, yet people all over the world knew her by a single name.
