There is celebration in Canada at 150 years, and rightly so. Notwithstanding ongoing challenges, today’s Canada must be counted one of the world’s most fortunate countries, writes Gerald Schmitz. (Photo by Gerald Schmitz)

This Week


Faith and film

Faith and films have been lifelong obsessions for acclaimed director Martin Scorsese, and this year, at the Catholic Media Conference in Quebec City, he was presented with a lifetime achievement award for excellence in filmmaking.


Lessons in patience

Never having known much about plants or gardening, Edna Froese undertook the care of a jade plant. Little did she know that the slow jade “is in the business of living for the long haul.”


Value and importance of words

“We need to renew the word, cleanse it and redeem it,” Michael Higgins told those gathered for the recent CMC conference in Quebec City, pointing out that the Trappist monk Rev. Thomas Merton, a poet, was fully aware of this in his knowledge and respect for language and his realization that it could be used to “shake us out of complacency.”
