"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20


Latest radio and announcement!

Laura DeMaria

To catch you up: in case you missed it, I spoke with John and the Morning Air crew this past Monday morning. You can listen to the audio here, and my portion starts around 33:55. The topic of the day: why we, as lay people, must know and live our identity as a real part of the church's mission. After all, the Church would, as John Henry Newman said, look rather silly without us! 

In even bigger and more exciting news, I have been offered a recurring spot on the show. So, mark your calendars for the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 AM, and we will continue the conversation!

I hope everyone is having a blessed Advent. Tonight I lit my second candle (but just for a little bit because, as we all know, those candles burn out in what seems like a matter of minutes) and also spent much of the weekend at St. Benedict's Monastery in Bristow, VA. They have a very interesting storytelling project going on ahead of their 150th anniversary of being in the state of VA, called "Countdown 150." It combines a piece of the monastery's history with prayer and story, with a new memory shared each day until the celebration on May 1, 2018. More to come on this front: I will be writing about this cool project and in the meantime I recommend you read one or two of the posts (including one about a sister who succumbed to typhoid, and another sister forever remembered via poetry).
