By Daniel Cardinal DiNardo • Lent is a time of conversion. Conversion is a kind of “turning” and involves a movement, if not physical, at least, movement of the heart.

By Daniel Cardinal DiNardo • In these uneasy days, we need a time of contemplation, silence and quiet joy. With the Holy Family as guide and consolation, may we progress step by step in love and that outreach to the margins that Pope Francis calls “missionary discipleship.”
