  • Catholics bring light of Christ to D.C. streets at first Light the City event
    On a dark winter evening, the Light the City banner fastened to the doors of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington displayed a verse from John 1:5: “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not overcome it.” Inside the cathedral at the vigil Mass on Saturday Feb. 28, young adults sang the words, “Christ be our light, shine in our hearts, shine through the darkness.” They then went out into the city carrying votive candles bearing the image of Christ and saints like Pope John Paul II, and asked strangers to escape the cold of the night, if only for a moment, to light a candle for peace inside the cathedral. “The [concept] reminds me of the theology behind Christmas,” said young adult Andrea Ulrich, “Of introducing light in the darkness.”

  • Living the Commandments in our Heart
    Actions often speak louder than words. Even as youngsters we knew that we would often be judged by what we actually did rather than by what we said we would do.
