ORDINARY TIME AFTER CHRISTMAS

Bridget Puzon, O.S.U.   The shepherds came, the Magi came, and now the Nativity scene has changed, and those colorful figures have gone. They make a colorful and rich celebration of the Nativity, full of light and hope. And the music changes. From carols all can sing because we all know the words and feel…

The Heart Cave

Stephanie Nolan, O.S.U.   I must remember to go down to the heart cave And sweep it clean, make it warm, with fire on the hearth And candles in their niches The pictures on the walls glowing with quiet lights   I must remember to go down to the heart cave And make the bed…
