LIMON. The Union Pacific Railroad still thunders past the small town of Limon, 72 miles east of Colorado Springs. Years ago, frequent stops of passenger trains encouraged growth and the founding of the place, but now it’s the highway that brings visitors. Making their way along Interstate 70, travelers come in for a landing to be served by a bright new cluster of gas stations, gift shops, and several chain hotels. Locals enjoy good work here, and many will attend Mass today at Our Lady of Victory, a handsome red brick church founded in 1925. Today — Dec. 15, 2019 — is a special day, and people and luminaries stream in from all over.

Like everyone, as I progressed through my life, there has been no shortage of moral dilemmas. Whether related to family, career, or personal choices, I did my best to navigate them, enlisting the help of my priest when I felt I couldn’t get to the right solution on big problems. Every time I brought a dilemma to my priest, he seemed to have a solution that felt much better than what I was able to come up with. As relieving as it was to have sound guidance in these situations, it highlighted the fact that I was missing something. My priest possessed a reliable compass that allowed him to determine the right direction even in difficult circumstances. Over the years, I’ve searched for such a compass like the one my priest possessed, and I feel I’ve found a very good one, which is called Catholic Social Teaching, or CST.

COLORADO SPRINGS.  In his quest to invent the light bulb, Thomas Edison was quoted as saying, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” St. Mary’s sophomores and Corpus Christi alums Cameron Baker and Justin Fauson can relate. They experienced many failures as they worked to use 3D printing technology to support two local multiple sclerosis practices. However, just as Edison did, Baker and Fauson persevered, and now their design will help area multiple sclerosis (MS) patients better understand their disease.
