A Short Take on a Huge Subject

One of the challenges of writing a newspaper column is fitting my Catholic experience into a mere 510 words.  That’s always the tricky part for me.  I mean, if you didn’t limit me, I’d write volumes about the complex thing called faith.

But I love writing this column, because it makes me really focus on the essence of what I am feeling and believing.  And I always learn something about myself in the process.

My latest column — “The Ritual I’ll Never Outgrow” — is a reflection on the Mass.  As you’ll see in the article, my kids have given me an entirely new lens through which to view this subject.  It’s just one more way in which those little people leave their fingerprints on every surface of my life … and thank God for that.
