Apr. 7, 2021: With Easter Day behind us, we continue a season of on what the Easter news means for us.

Mar. 31, 2021: In ordinary years, an analogy is often drawn between Easter and the natural renewal of spring.  This year the analogy is drawn between Easter and our re-emergence from the pandemic.  Both analogies have their strengths and limits. I find Thomas Merton’s journal entry for Easter Day, 1948, to be helpful… All the apple trees came out in blossom on Good Friday.  It rained and got colder, but today is very bright with a pure sky.  The willow…

Mar. 24, 2021: Many people are hoping to get “back to normal” in a post-covid nation and world, but the recent acts of violence in Atlanta/Boulder and the renewed crisis at our southern border remind us that not all was well pre-pandemic, and there will be plenty of challenges after the coronavirus ceases to be a threat.
