The holy season of Lent has begun amid the unrelenting cold and snow of a brutal New England winter. Yet, the transition from winter to spring weather that we will (hopefully) experience during Lent is a fitting analogy for what Lent is meant to accomplish within each of us. more
A few members of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church in the Boston Archdiocese have been holding vigil in their church for more than ten years since it was announced in 2005 that it would close. These few dozen faithful have, it seems, failed to recognize the signs of the times and the reality that is the Catholic Church in the United States and in the Northeast with its special considerations of a plethora of formerly ethnic parishes.
