What do you do when you know you are fire?

On Palm Sunday eve came a Christ figure with a shovel

The word of God is in my hands and heart and across the street

The museum of good intentions

A bedroom liturgy with my dying brother

A boy on a ledge: We've all been there

Let go, right into the arms of Christ

Rage against the dying of the light

Even in desolate times, they write love notes with radishes

Losing, finding and venturing forth, with eyes wide open

The Way of the Cross in my neighborhood

Sisters sing: a program of gratitude

The chair and the window

A hole in the roof

Dwelling in possibility

Taking the air in during the coronavirus pandemic

Into the woods

The nod: just saying Yes

Reports from the fringe

Pearls at the house of mercy
