Ten Things That Caught My Eye (September 12, 2018)

1. The opioid crisis is “a family disease”

2. Tolerance: A One-Way Street in Philadelphia?

3. New religious order takes on L.A.’s homeless crisis

4. The mother of a daughter adopted from China on her hopes for China

5. Caring for the elderly poor in Oklahoma



7. Rod Dreher takes the Benedict Option to Rome.



9. Learning to place our worries and fears in the hand of God

10. How to Tell If You Are in a Brontë Novel

PLUS: It’s not too late to consider being a part of the prayer response to the crisis in the Catholic Church.

An interview with the director of a new project I’m excited about, The GIVEN Institute.

A discussion on Friday night at the Archdiocese of New York about the scandals and the lay response. (They just ask for your RSVP if you’re going.)

Join me for this event on the life and legacy of J. J. Hanson and the fight against physician-assisted suicide in D.C. on October 24.

On October 9, I’ll be in D.C. talking about the book Women Who Pray and its urgent timeliness.

I have a free weekly e-mail that goes out on Saturday mornings that you can sign up for here.
