Young Voices: I hear a sentiment that the church (and forms of religious life) that they once knew are in a long winter, at rest. Scenes of life and familiar landscapes will sprout soon, they seem to say. If only they hold on to hope, then what they once knew will come back, with greater flourishing.
Young Voices: I'm usually not good at Lent. Yet this year I fulfilled my goal: praying the rosary almost daily. But by Holy Week's end, I owed this more to determination not to fall short than to any notion that the rosary was enriching my life.
