LOYOLA PRESS A Jesuit Ministry : Home This is where I work--we're all about helping people's souls, as the Jesuits put it. Books to buy, articles to read, a great 3-minute retreat and other short meditations.
Lively dust This blog is created by LaVonne Neff, a good friend as well as writer/reader/editor/cook/mother/grandmother and who has a lovely way of seeing how life is sensual and divine all at once.
PBS Masterpiece series Cranford This is my new (well, new to me) favorite miniseries. Lovely, funny, heartbreaking. Made to go with a pot of strong tea and hankies with lace.
Rambling Rose I don't think there was much buzz about this 1991 movie, but I like it so much I own a copy. There's so much grace in this story, and Diane Ladd delivers one of my favorite movie speeches of all time, toward the end of the film (she and Robert Duvall, her husband, are in the doctor's office).
Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God This is a short, readable, and powerful book. I'm on my way to read Bourgeault's other works. This one encouraged me and gave me a boost of desire for that quiet place with God.
