  • The Mass & Brunch Movement

    It all started in January 2007, when two upstate ladies (Lisa and Renee) had the idea of getting together in New York City to attend Mass and then have brunch together afterwards. It sounded like a good idea and ten others joined them. This turned out to be the...

  • The Eucharist: A Compass For Life

    My family loves snorkeling and diving in the Florida Keys. We know some incredible dive sites, including an underwater statue of Christ called “Christ of the Deep,” sunken shipwrecks, and stunning coral reefs.

  • Whence Evil Comes

    It seemed the perfect place to send our second child to college. The sleepy town of Blacksburg, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, exuded small town charm. The goofy giant turkey, the Hokie Bird, is comfortingly, well, hokey. Above the rolling grassy fields and grazing cows,...

  • Following Our Mother’s Example

    She was a new face, but the story she told me was one I had heard many, many times before. Over a cup of coffee and a piece of Key Lime pie, she told me of her desire to be married and have a family. She confided her frustrations...

  • A Leap of Faith

    I (Adela) simply want to thank you for your services. On June 20, 2005, I was reviewing my mail when I glanced over and noticed Chester was online. I read his bio and left him a simple note. Both of us work in middle schools and that's what our...
