Holy Thursday's Watch Offers an Opportunity for Reflection and Prayer

Connectivity – a doublespeak word if there ever was one.

It is, in fact, dis-connectivity. Life through devices makes us not present in our immediate world and takes us outside of ourselves and into the world of entertainment, sports, social media, etc.

My favorite is the commercial for some streaming service where the guy says “Now you watch movies on your phone,” as if ...

Why would they all leave?

It’s the question to which I know the answer to, but still find it incomprehensible when I see the rugged beauty and enjoy the simple lifestyle of Southern Italy even for a too-short vacation. 

They left to find work. They left for the promise of America, and the belief that aspiration leads to ascension.

In the earliest days of Southern Italian ...

Kennedy Jr. during a debate with an educated vaccine proponent you really respect, but since no one is willing to debate him, I am lending my voice to this profoundly unpopular perspective. Frankly, I never thought I’d have to summon courage to publicly support informed choice, but seeing as New Jersey legislators have ...

And Every Word is True by Gary McAvoy (Literati, 2019)

Granted, true crime is my favorite genre, and any book about Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood is going to lure my attention.
