Beautiful crucifix
It was one of the nicest things that ever happened to me in my writing career.

What is a pope?

We all have heard about the pope. Pope Francis this, Pope Francis that. But why do we even have a pope? He doesn’t do anything, does he?

How should we gauge our success? Blessed Teresa offers answers

Working for the Lord some days sure ain’t easy, my friends, but it surely is worth it. Let’s pray to remain faithful to His call.

The influence of Ruby Gray
Ruby began to see God’s handiwork everywhere, including in herself. Once that happened, it was as if sparks kept flying.

What does it mean to be a Catholic gardener?
The chance to design and plant our garden, to prune it and add to it over the years invites us to ongoing collaboration with the Maker of beauty.

The importance of modesty for human dignity
Without modesty, dignity, and self restraint, we might be little more than animals.

End the bus pass bias
A policy sustained for years by the City of Portland, Portland Public Schools and TriMet flies in the face of equal treatment under the law. Parents of private school students should be outraged.

Salvadorans sustained by their strong faith in face of rampant violence
When life is good, I'm able to get some vacation days off during Holy Week to visit my homeland of El Salvador. It's usually a festive time filled with lots of hugs, too much food and streets filled with fellow Catholics whose numbers I love joining in religious processions and events in and around the city.

Two schoolgirls reflect on poverty
Two seventh graders, inspired by the Jubilee of Mercy, have written to the readers of the Catholic Sentinel to explain what they have learned about poverty.

A rescued dog has brought joy to family
