+  Waiting and Reflecting with Newman

  • Description: Like millions of Catholics around the world, Joanna Bogle has been mostly confined to her home for several weeks and has been unable to participate in the Mass and Sacraments in the traditional way. But that doesn't mean it has to be a spiritually dead time. St John Henry Newman dated his own spiritual journey to a summer when he battled an illness at school and was confined to his bed. Joanna joins us with the story.

+  Elites Go to War on Homeschooling — Just When Everyone’s Doing It

  • Description: The pandemic has essentially forced every family to become a homeschooling family, much to the chagrin of critics of homeschooling, such as the one we saw in Harvard magazine last week. The author of that article will co-host an event this summer called "Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and the Prospects for Reform."
