Spiritual remediation for a summer of discord

 | 

I was preaching in June after the Orlando event about the new normal and how we are all beginners. I was going to speak about summer beach reading and instead I was (again) talking about public violence. As I arrived at my main point -- life is going to be a lot about interruption for a while to come -- that’s when someone’s cell phone went off, unprogrammed. It gave us the good laugh we needed. 

Baton Rouge Hispanic Apostolate concerned by city's actions after flood

 | 

Officials of the Baton Rouge diocese’s Hispanic Apostolate expressed concern about encounters with the Mayor's Office of Homeland Security via email and a personal visit in the days following August's historic flooding.

Julia Scarnato, who recently joined the apostolate staff, and Fr. Eliecer Montanez-Grimaldos, chaplain, questioned if the government agency may have been using the office as an unwilling conduit to track down and arrest immigrants living in the country illegally.
