    Praying the Angelus – (Re)Discover an Ancient Prayer

    by

    My knowledge of the Angelus prayer was minimal at best before reading Praying the Angelus by Jared Dees (Ave Maria Press, 2017). I doubt that I am alone in that regard. Dees, a high school theology teacher, describes his own confusion when first listening to the Angelus in Latin when in Rome and then learning […]

    Poem: “The Moment I See Your Face”

    by

    The Moment I See Your Face As the Psalmist said, Lord, how I long to see Your face. Yet I do so fearfully, Knowledge of my sinfulness, Would postpone this joy. Poor I am indeed, That I should think this, Your mercy is enshrined by the saved. Your forgiveness could never be questioned by the […]
