COLORADO SPRINGS. Living out the Catholic faith means working to make the world a better place. That goal aligned perfectly with the Future City competition, which one St. Mary’s High School student participated in all three years of middle school. Not only did the competition teach Alex Baburnic, now a sophomore at St. Mary’s, to look for physical ways to change the world, but it gave him the confidence that he could succeed in doing just that.

El Rosario de la Virgen María, difundido gradualmente en el segundo Milenio bajo el soplo del Espíritu de Dios, es una oración apreciada por numerosos Santos y fomentada por el Magisterio.  En su sencillez y profundidad, sigue siendo también en este tercer Milenio apenas iniciado una oración de gran significado, destinada a producir frutos de santidad (San Juan Pablo II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae [RVM] 1).  

Octubre es el mes del Santo Rosario, cuya fiesta se celebra el 7 de octubre.  En los años inmediatamente posteriores al Concilio Vaticano II, el Rosario, una oración que los católicos guardaron durante siglos, cayó en un desuso generalizado. El encomiable énfasis del Concilio sobre la liturgia como la oración más importante de todos los católicos significó, para muchos, que la Iglesia pedía un énfasis menor en el Rosario.  “En realidad, como puntualizó Pablo VI, esta oración no sólo no se opone a la Liturgia, sino que le da soporte, ya que la introduce y la recuerda, ayudando a vivirla con plena participación interior, recogiendo así sus frutos en la vida cotidiana” (RVM, 4).

The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, which gradually took form in the second millennium under the guidance of the Spirit of God, is a prayer loved by countless Saints and encouraged by the Magisterium. Simple yet profound, it still remains, at the dawn of this third millennium, a prayer of great significance, destined to bring forth a harvest of holiness (St. John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae [RVM], 1)

October is the Month of the Holy Rosary, which feast is celebrated on October 7. In the years immediately following the Second Vatican Council the Rosary, a prayer treasured by Catholics for centuries, fell into widespread disuse. The Council’s laudable emphasis on the liturgy as the most important prayer of all Catholics meant, for many, that the Church was calling for less emphasis on the Rosary. “Yet, as Pope Paul VI made clear, not only does this prayer not conflict with the Liturgy, it sustains it, since it serves as an excellent introduction and a faithful echo of the Liturgy, enabling people to participate full and interiorly in it and to reap its fruits in their daily lives” (RVM, 4).

I have many memories of my father, but one in particular stands out. It was the late 1990s and we were driving Highway 72 in Coal Creek Canyon outside of Pinecliffe, Colorado, near Nederland.  My grandparents owned a cabin there in which I had spent a lot of time as a kid.

The Old Testament Book of Exodus tells us the words of God’s Ten Commandments. The third commandment is: “Remember the Sabbath day in order to keep it holy” (Ex. 20:8).  Keeping the Sabbath holy is connected to remembering. Remembering what? First, God’s work of creation, but, even more importantly, the new creation in Christ’s death and resurrection.

NEW YORK. Sincere but less than slick, the low-key, fact-based drama “All Saints” (PG, Sony) celebrates Christian faith and family life. Believers, accordingly, will likely be inclined to overlook its artistic shortcomings.

This time of year, home gardeners are enjoying their divine sun-ripened tomatoes. The taste of home-grown tomatoes is far superior to the winter store-bought ones. People almost cringe when summer ends and their tended tomato vines have shriveled up and show no sign of the former brightly-colored, juicy gems. Walking into the grocery store in the middle of December looking for a fresh tomato almost causes one to stop and lament the heavenly flavor from the not-so-long-ago backyard harvest.
