Kathy Bradley - Monks and soldiers

I finally used my passport. It's been in my safe for eight years, its navy blue cover stiff, the edges of its pages unruffled. It would be difficult to explain why it took so long; the important thing is that now a lovely blue stamp on one of its pages confirms the fact that my feet left the sovereign soil of the United States, landed in Ireland, and returned.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Looking for a better future

Even though most people don't think about making personal resolutions until closer to the New Year, I'd like to say a few things about their importance, and suggest a few for you to consider. A lot of people don't like them, but, in my opinion, we need them. They help us think about where we need to improve, and, at the same time, encourage us toward making our lives more productive and enjoyable.

John Bressler - God and family will always be the cornerstone

A priest, who taught at Notre Dame, spoke to me about a textbook he had written which concentrated on the early sociological system around the first century Middle Eastern culture. While the Bible does not use his exact terminology to describe the family unit, most scholars agree that he and his peers are right on target.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It's time to clean up our spiritual lives

Several years ago, my wife Carole and I were in "the process" of moving to a different house in Statesboro. "The process" had began several weeks earlier when we learned our offer on the house we're in now had been accepted, and we started getting things together.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Mom losing her patience, sleep

Q: I gave birth to our second child a few weeks ago so I'm sleep-deprived and running low on patience. In the meantime, my 3-year-old son has become another person. He has regressed with potty training; he isn't cooperating with me about anything; and he laughs when I put him in time-out, like it's a joke. I find myself yelling and threatening constantly. Is this directly related to having a new sibling? If so, will it pass? By the way, he seems to like the idea of being a big brother. He's very sweet to him ...

Kathy Bradley - Three views from an office

I've worked in this building for 11 years. I'm presently in my third office. The first one was directly by the front door and everyone who came in passed by. It had a set a double windows with a sill wide enough that, on afternoons when my brain pulsed like the walls of a disco and distraction was the only antidote for the throbbing, I could sit and watch the traffic - car and foot - move by on Main Street in currents running north and south.
