Dear Friends,

With the confluence of Easter and Opening Day of MLB, this month signals the start of a special time of year! Once again we experience heavenly freedom from the scourge of sin and earthly freedom from the void of the off-season.

Freedom is a big theme for us this month.  We will remember St. John Paul II, a great champion of human freedom, with our ► 10th annual memorial Arts & Culture celebration. We will discuss current cultural threats to freedom in a special ► Center Valley Forum.  And we reflect upon the freedom that true love brings, with a special series on the ► Humanum project.

And all these events are free of charge!  So feel free to join us for these and any of our public programs.

Happy Easter!  And play ball!

  Fr. Thomas Dailey, OSFS



Inspiring Ideas ... 

In his homily for this year’s Chrism Mass, Pope Francis spoke about the tiredness of priests, which could also be applied to the consecrated life.  Whatever form this weariness takes, it provides a way by which consecrated religious can draw closer to the Lord in this Year of Consecrated Life.  For St. Francis de Sales, this means a living engagement with his favorite Scripture passage:  “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take up my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matt 11:28-29).

"Wake Up the World" commentary


Pope John Paul II"A specific priority is the need to examine the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life."


- Pope John Paul II
