I came across the Stations of the Cross at Presence Resurrection Retirement Community quite by accident one Sunday morning. My husband is the choir director for the 9 AM Mass. Though I had attended with him several times, I never knew about the beautiful garden and Stations. Normally, the Stations of the Cross are practiced during... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/being-catholic-really/2016/07/the-stations-of-the-cross-2/" class="more-link"...

Most people make New Year’s Eve resolutions, but I’ve started making summer resolutions. Mary Schmich, of the Chicago Tribune, wrote an article entitled, “Making the Most of Summer Requires Resolution.” I have found the olde...

Honor Your Inner Monk is an app I came across recently. What I like best about it, is that the prayers are short and to the point. In a sentence or two, the prayer is thoughtful, helpful and practical. Most importantly, I find that the prayer sticks with me throughout the day. Too busy to... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/being-catholic-really/2016/06/honor-your-inner-monk/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

Our daughter graduated from college in May. My husband and I have been to many college graduations, but this one was different. It wasn’t different because it was our daughter, it was different because she graduated from a Lu...

Pope Francis’ favorite painting, Chagall’s White Crucifixion, returns to The Art Institute of Chicago. I learned all this through social media so I planned my visit to the museum. Chagall is known for his use of color, but the White Crucifixion is nearly devoid of color. Small areas of the painting have some color, but... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/being-catholic-really/2016/03/pope-francis-favorite-painting-chagalls-white-crucifixion-r...

Our daughter graduated from college. Her father and I are so proud of her! She’s overcome quite a bit to get there, but she persevered and she didn’t quit. Her hard work paid off and we were thrilled to watch her “walk.” Our daughter graduated from a Lutheran college. She had attended a secular college,... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/being-catholic-really/2016/06/our-daughters-graduation-what-i-learned-from-the-lutherans/" class="more-...

After attending the exhibit of Van Gogh's Bedrooms at The Art Institute of Chicago, I've become a bit obsessed with the museum itself and Van Gogh's works. As a life-long Chicago resident, the exhibit prompted me to become a...
