Mary Margaret Farabee

(Community Matters) Mary Margaret passed away after a long and courageous fight against cancer. She was one of two women in my young professional life who most mentored, guided, cajoled and encouraged my deep involvement in community.

Cardinal O’Brien

Cardinal Keith O’Brien(Community Matters) Britain’s most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Keith O’Brien has now acknowledged as truthful the allegations of sexual impropriety.

His admission is a courageous step. I’ll pray for him and others.

And not rise to the greatest heights, the greatest hours, the greatest provocations, spoiling things for the others and taking (what they want) from the majority,” he told the private broadcaster TVN during a discussion of gay rights. “I don’t agree to this and I will never agree to it.”
