Remembering September 11th- Mercies in Disguise
Sometimes, the best stories come from unexpected moments of inspiration. Recently, I had a unique experience attending Mass at St. Columba in Columbia. Originally, I hadn't planned on going there; the church I regularly attend had canceled the early Mass for the summer. At the same time, I was struggling to find a topic for this month's Four County Catholic article. Writer's block had hit me hard, and the deadlines were looming. During the Communion meditation, something remarkable happened. My eyes caught sight of a large plaque on the wall listing the corporal...

How can anyone afford groceries nowadays?” “It’s terrible!” I just hope no one heard me, and if they didn’t, it was probably because they were talking to themselves. This ...

Pope St. John Paul II, who had a passion for the great outdoors and used it to evangelize the Catholic faith, is inspiring others locally to do the same. Suzi Porter, leader of a women’s Bible study group at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, was driving to a class last March when she felt called to start a Catholic hiking group and name it after the saint and former pope. “Our former Pope loved the outdoors and I had seen pictures of him hiking and skiing and kayaking well into his senior years,” Porter says. “I thought wh...
