C. Matthew Hawkins: Encountering Christ; A Conspiracy of Love: Beale Street: Mid-70s African American Novel Gets 21st Century Cinematographic Treatment

Here's a blog post that's a review of a film currently playing in theatres titled 'Beale Street' written by a seminarian I've met here in Baltimore during my current sabbatical. Matt Hawkins is a man of tremendous passion, zeal, and intellect who has clearly dedicated his life to both promoting the Gospel of Christ and bettering the welfare of the greater American community. I suspect that we'll be hearing a great deal from this young man in the years to come within the American Church and beyond.

Check out his blog and see there just a taste of what I believe he has to offer. It has been the opportunity to meet, discuss, and debate issues of theology and social justice that I count among the great gifts this time of study at St. Mary's Seminary and University here in Baltimore has afforded me. I am truly blessed. Here's hoping we all will continue to be blessed by reading more from this insightful Catholic: Matt Hawkins in the years to come. Well done Matt.

Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
