Apple, Amazon, AT&T, Chase, Comcast, Hewlett-Packard, Ikea, Kroger, Lyft, Macy’s, MasterCard, Microsoft, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Target, Uber, and Walt Disney are among a growing list of companies that pay for their employees to travel for an abortion. The culture of death, which has taken over much of our education system, is firmly implanted in corporate America.  Now, more than ever, we need Catholic leaders to bring the Gospel message to the workplace — this is the mission of Legatus.

OPINION / COMMENTARY
August 5, 2022  |  By SEAN M. WRIGHT

Sandy, my older brother, and I both went to St. John Vianney High School in Los Angeles, staffed by Dominican friars. It engendered a great fondness in us for this great cleric, who is the patron saint of parish priests. In the 18th century, with the battered Church in France brought to her knees by revolu-tion, God raised up an unexpectedly gentle champion of the faith.

Vines can be charming and add vertical interest to the landscape. They are considered to be under-used and tend to be over looked at our local nurseries. Silver lace vine is a great choice for gardeners in our diocese who are interested in a fast-growing, easy going and undemanding vine.

A Look at the Mass Sequences, Centering on the Golden Sequence for Pentecost
June 3, 2022  |  By SEAN M. WRIGHT

Truly, we are creatures of habit. Used to standing for the Gospel Acclamation’s alleluias immediately following the Epistle, congregations at Mass are usually caught by surprise when the Sequence appears instead.

FEATURED MOVIE REFLECTION: Lightyear

NEW YORK. “Lightyear” (PG, Disney) blasts off in cinemas with controversy in its wake.

In what is becoming a bad habit for the Mouse House (witness the “pro-choice” theme in “Turning Red,” or the heroine with two moms in “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”), Disney injects the objectionable into what would otherwise be wholesome fare for the entire family.
