NEW YORK. In the hands of such great artists as British novelist J.R.R. Tolkien or Irish poet W.B. Yeats, the elements of medieval lore have been deployed to great effect.

Such, alas, is not the case with “Artemis Fowl” (PG, Disney), director Kenneth Branagh’s crowded, off-key screen version of Eoin Colfer’s 2001 fantasy novel for young adults that’s streaming now on Disney+.

This seems to be a terrific year for the Sumac. They are green, healthy and extremely pleasing to the eye. The three main types of sumac are smooth, staghorn and fragrant.

The smooth sumac is considered a native shrub/tree in our diocese and is well adapted to our fussy Colorado climate, soils and environmental conditions. Sumacs are especially useful for windbreaks, stabilizing embankments, naturalizing wild areas and forming thickets.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Life Network’s 2020 Walk for Life looked a little different from previous years, but our “Catholics 4 Life Network” team stepped out in faith and raised over $52,000 in support of the agency. COVID-19 restrictions required Life Network to get creative with their annual fundraising walk, so they took the walk virtual. Since we couldn’t gather at Memorial Park, walkers and runners were encouraged to map a two-mile course in their neighborhoods or nearby recreation areas and trails and then walk or run on June 6 wherever they were.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Most people are familiar with the dramatic story of Saul on the road to Damascus. The notorious hunter of Christians is thrown to the ground by a flash of light and blinded for three days.

Less well-known is the story of Ananias — the disciple who was asked by God to lay hands on Saul, filling him with the Holy Spirit, restoring his sight and transforming him into the apostle we now know as St. Paul. Given Saul’s ruthless reputation, Ananias could have said “no” to God out of fear or lack of preparation. Instead, as told in Acts 9:10-19, Ananias chose to obey, setting Paul on his apostolic journey and greatly affecting the growth of the Church in the world.

NEW YORK. Baby boomers may remember whiling away their Saturday mornings, beginning in 1969, by watching the Hanna- Barbera cartoon series “Scooby- Doo, Where Are You!”


Beyond the fact that its ensemble of teen sleuths always discovered a perfectly reasonable explanation for apparently occult events, however, their memories of the show may be blurry.
