    Sweet Hour of Prayer! Or Not? How do You Experience Prayer? By: Msgr. Charles PopeHow do you think of prayer? Is it another thing you “have to do” among many other things on your list?

Many struggle with prayer and experience it with a lot of negativity: boredom,...

    GOFFSTOWN – St. Anselm College is seeking to double the enrollment of Hispanics, African-Americans, and other minorities and create a campus environment that welcomes students of other Christian denominations, religions, and different sexual orientations. "We need to be a place where everyone feels at home, not just some people," said the Rev. Jonathan DeFelice, president of the college. "What are the things we do that are unattractive and therefore keeping some people away? We're asking that question ourselves. Are we doing enough so that people feel comfortable and at home here?" Denise Askin, a retired English professor, was hired this...

    'The Making of a Philosopher': The Intensely Examined Life By MARY LEFKOWITZ Socrates always insisted that what he knew was worth little or nothing, even though no less an authority than the Delphic oracle said that there was no one wiser than he. Philosophers are not ''lovers of wisdom,'' in the literal meaning of the word, but lovers of the search for understanding. They cannot rest until they can determine for themselves and explain to their colleagues how they know what can be known, and why it is worth knowing.
