  • Sunday Gospel reflection with Fr. Bill Grimm

    March 24, 2017

    The call to Baptism is an invitation to be cured of the blindness that afflicts the world. But, why us? Why should I be chosen to know the Lord when billions of better people than I will never have that chance?

  • Cambodia's Muslim Chams

    March 21, 2017

    Cambodia's Chams arrived here as refugees from ongoing wars between Vietnam and Champa, which did not end until 1832. Less than 150-years later the Khmer Rouge nearly drove them into extinction. Since then, their cherished traditions have faced stiff challenges from more orthodox strains of Islam with Dawa Tabligh and Salafists missionaries arriving here with an influx of foreign money as part of rebuilding efforts in the aftermath of a 30-year war. The crackdown in Cambodia that followed the 2002 Bali bombing, that killed more than 200 people, changed that. (Photos and text by Luke Hunt)
