Pundits left and right have been jockeying for position in anticipation of Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment. This is quite amazing, considering that even the publication date hasn’t been published yet!

I do not know what he is going to say. Neither, dear reader, does anyone else whom you are likely to read. However, I can tell you two things that he will certainly NOT say. And those two unsaid things have the potential to speak volumes, if only we will listen. Read more…

Why do we love Saving Mr. Banks? We have been flocking to see it. Not a single frame of the film is wasted. But what makes it a masterpiece? I think we love this story because the redemption story it tells is one we never tire of hearing.

by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur
