I remember sitting on the curb-side on Bloor Street in Toronto, once, many years ago, at a Life-Chain. This was in the days when I would say that I was against abortions, but I didn’t feel I could tell a woman what to do with her own body. The point of a Life-Chain is that ...read more
I always think of September as a time of new beginning; the changing of seasons, the beginning of school for many, the return to the regular routine of work, and for those in the world of television — the debut of new programming! It’s no different here at Salt + Light as we have a ...read more
I couldn’t help but smiling as I watched dozens of children shower a statue of the Infant Mary in the Church hall of a Mississauga, Ontario parish this past weekend. I’m sure our Blessed Mother was smiling as well! The event came as part of Monthi Fest — a special celebration hosted by the Mangalorean ...read more
You won’t be seeing David or Michèle on Zoom for the next little while as they’ll be busy honeymooning! That’s right, Salt + Light’s own David Naglieri and Michèle Nuzzo were married this past weekend. Congratulations from all your colleagues at Salt + Light: may this be the beginning of an blessed and joyous life ...read more

Her life was not a ‘sound bite.’ But rather a metaphor for selfless devotion and holiness. That is why ...read more

September 3, 2008
I took a brief respite in Ottawa two weeks ago after what’s been a very busy summer here at S+L. Though I only had enough time to visit a few friends, I did manage one road trip. No other form of travel matches the road trip’s mystique. The allure largely lies in the opportunity to ...read more
The Holy Father’s general prayer intention for September is: “That those who, because of wars or oppressive regimes, are forced to leave their homes and country may be supported by Christians in the defence and protection of their rights.” His mission intention is: “That, faithful to the sacrament of matrimony, every Christian family may cultivate ...read more
At his Wednesday General Audience Pope Benedict provided a brief, but excellent, biographical sketch of St. Paul. I found particularly interesting the details on his travels. You can read the translation from Zenit HERE. The Holy Father asked for prayers for the current situation in India: I have learned with deep sadness the news about ...read more
