An extraordinary ordination in NYC

As the sun slowly rose on Manhattan sending its rays into the dark corridors between the skyscrapers, a familiar scene was unfolding before the massive doors of St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue. Scores of people dressed in their finest clothes scurried across the sidewalk with smiling eyes and tense laughter, exchanging hugs and warm words of welcome as they made their way into “America’s parish church.” The day is Saturday, May 26, 2018. And on this day, before parents […]

A rare look at how the Little Sisters of the Poor serve in the shadow of the Navajo Nation

A slowly building breeze gently sweeps across the high plains, giving rise to a ghostlike dust cloud obscuring where Rt. 66 meets the horizon, while tumbleweeds gleefully bounce along the well-worn pavement like a group of playful children. Nestled midway between the Continental Divide and the Arizona border is the small city of Gallup, affectionately known as the “The Indian Capital of the World” as it lies in the embrace of the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi lands that surround it. Its […]

St. Francis is alive and well and living in the South Bronx

The year was 1977. Sportscaster Howard Cosell, viewing the fires that raged just outside the walls of Yankee Stadium during Game 2 of the World Series, uttered the infamous words, “There it is, ladies and gentlemen, the Bronx is burning.” Throughout the 1970s the South Bronx became a symbol of everything that was wrong with society, and itself turned into a living hell complete with towering flames at night and clouds of jet black smoke by day that could be […]

Bringing Christ to the streets of New York

In a way, it’s the one place on the planet that every nation on earth can lay some claim to. It was built by the blood, sweat and dreams of immigrants […]

See how a mother’s prayers changed a man and changed the world

Daylight streamed through the leaded glass windows of the little room that sits adjacent to the entrance to the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption in Trenton, New Jersey. The room sits in stark contrast to the cathedral’s soaring marble columns and radiant stained glass that bathes the cavernous space with Gospel glory through a dance of color and light. On Saturday, June 3, the little room was the last place that four men would stand together before crossing […]

New Yorkers pray for persecuted Christians…in Times Square

Summertime in New York City is something everyone should experience at least once in their lives. The city’s ordinarily rabid pace tapers off a bit as city dwellers escape to the Hamptons or the Jersey Shore, fleeing the smell of molten asphalt and trading it for the scent of salt air. The sound of children squealing with delight around fountains and fire hydrants fills the sweltering air with the song of summer, as waves of tourists stroll around the concrete […]
