Washington (CNS)-- The U.S. bishops will consider endorsing the sainthood cause of Sister Thea Bowman, the granddaughter of slaves and the only African-American member of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, who transcended racism to leave a lasting mark on Catholic life in the United States in the late 20th century.

My phone camera is filled with screenshots of beautiful table settings, ideas for perfect centerpieces and stacks of just-right china and silver. I have a plan for the perfect Thanksgiving tablescape: I just can’t execute it.

SAVANNAH--Members of diverse faith communities gathered Oct. 30 at Congregation Agudath Achim in Savannah to commemorate the victims of the Oct. 27 attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pennsylvania.

 

Prompted by the shooting of eleven Jewish congregants at the synagogue in Pittsburgh, also known as the L’Simcha, the conservative congregation in Savannah welcomed both its Jewish and non-Jewish brothers and sisters to stand together in solidarity against the attack and other acts of religious intolerance.

My eyes went left and right in search of a black-suited man with Band-Aids on his face as the service center lady said, “You need a new motor.”

 

“A new what?” was the only reply I could muster, still intently focused on locating "Mayhem" somewhere in our vicinity. Magan was left shaking her head saying, “What?” in hopes of luring me away from the phone long enough to share the news.

Speaking on behalf of all adult Catholics, Pope Francis formally closed the 2018 Synod of Bishops by asking young people for forgiveness. "Forgive us if often we have not listened to you, if instead of opening our hearts, we have filled your ears. As Christ's Church, we want to listen to you with love" because young people's lives are precious in God's eyes and "in our eyes too," the pope said in his homily Oct. 28. The Mass, celebrated in St. Peter's Basilica, closed the monthlong synod on young people, faith and vocational discernment.

Two weeks ago, in these pages, I “took a walk down memory lane,” recalling the Armistice of Nov. 11, 1918, that “ended” the First World War, at the same time practically guaranteeing a Second World War. A little over two months earlier, my father had been born.

SAVANNAH--"Faith takes discipline,“ said Kevin Iocovozzi. "Just like driving, there is a lot of information coming at you and you have learn to settle in and pay attention to what is important."

 

A 1979 graduate of Benedictine Military School in Savannah, Iocovozzi began racing cars about 10 years ago. He says, “I think every young boy thinks about going fast. Out here we go fast and are safe.” Drivers must attend and pass racing school before they can get a license to race.

While I was in college there was a blind student one year below me. I never had a class with him, and only spoke with him once, but everyone on campus knew him. He was part of the chapel’s music ministry, having to memorize the words and notes of every song they prepared for Mass. He walked around campus with great ease using one of those distinctive white canes used by the blind.

As a purposeful means of attracting attention to what they considered the inequities created by the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act,  a dozen Catholic religious sisters set out on  a 21-state pilgrimage called “Nuns on a Bus.” The tour ended in Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, Nov. 2 prior to the mid term election on Nov. 6.

 

The tour stopped in Savannah on Oct. 30, and the sisters presented their case to about 40 people gathered at the ConneXion Methodist Church on  Skidaway Road in Savannah.
