Postcard from Up North

Love is the most necessary of all virtues…the fire of love of God and neighbor–it will work wonders. ~St. Anthony Mary Claret

(On the feast of All Saints this week, I’m thinking of St. Anthony Claret of Spain. He took the road less traveled when he founded the small but powerful Claretian Missionaries. I worked for the Claretian Initiative for many years in Chicago because their social justice programs in high poverty communities make a real difference for people in great need. If you have an interest in knowing more, it is my honor to share them with you here.)
