I recently visited The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, as well as The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration in Montgomery, Alabama. The somber memorial stands in remembrance of over 4,400 African American men, women and children who were lynched between 1877 and 1950 in the United States. These victims were hanged, burned alive, shot, drowned, and beaten to death by white mobs that ignored the rule of law and oftentimes acted in response to fabricated charges.

I was at Isabel’s swim practice recently, sitting up on the top row of the bleachers watching all the swimmers get their laps done.

Why are we turning into KFC?” Jesse asked curiously from a few rows back in the passenger van.


“Mommy didn’t get to eat lunch...and she said KFC mashed potatoes sounded good,” I replied with a wince, hoping not to raise suspicions. (Keep in mind we hadn’t eaten at KFC as a family in maybe three years.)

In 1993, I was asked to write a family life column for the Catholic Miscellany newspaper of the Diocese of Charleston. At that time, my four children were ages two through 10, and my Catholic faith and the opportunity to write were great gifts in my life. A convert to Catholicism, I had studied writing in my college and graduate years.

The Catholic News Service (CNS) reported a few weeks ago that “a Pew Research Center survey released Aug. 5 found that nearly 70% of Catholics believe that the bread and wine used for Communion during Mass are ‘symbols of the body and blood of Jesus Christ,’ while about 30% believe that the bread and wine ‘actually become’ Christ’s body and blood.”

DARIEN--The future site of the Georgia Martyrs monument received a blessing Sept. 15 after Mass at Nativity of our Lady Church in Darien.


At the Mass, Father Pablo Migone preached a homily in which he compared Saint Paul, the author of the day’s second reading, to the Gospel about the Prodigal Son and finally to the five Franciscan martyrs who await beatification, the next stage in their cause for canonization.
