A Time to Dream

October 6th, 2019

Chris McDonnell, in the Catholic Times, lets us know that it is good to have dreams to aim for ... that when "memories begin to fracture .. the dreams we once had remain."
"a Synod called to listen to the voices of South America, is in session. It will have repercussions for the whole Church. Not only will it consider issues specific to that community of our Church, but it will tell us a story of how our dreams are shaped and cared for. We must listen, we must respond, we must care for each other."
