+  Saints at Heart: How Fault-Filled, Problem-Prone, Imperfect People Like Us Can Be Holy

  • Description: Saints at Heart presents an engaging picture of the spiritual life as shown in the experience and writings of the saints. The title announces the book’s double theme: the lives of holy men and women who have consecrated their lives to God, and to the possibility of our following them and also dedicating our hearts to God. Readers will discover in this book well-told and appealing stories of women and men, ordinary human beings like themselves, who knew God and whose lives as a consequence radiated light, love, and joy.

+  Florida high school won’t accept pro-life student club

  • Description: Alliance Defending Freedom sent a letter Thursday to officials with Collier County Public Schools and Gulf Coast High School after they refused to officially recognize a pro-life club because it is too “political” and “controversial.” The letter explains that the refusal to recognize Sharks 4 Life, which would be an independent student group affiliated with the national Students for Life organization, is clearly unconstitutional and violates the federal Equal Access Act.
