Brother Donald Boccardi, SM, known for his music ability, turned to one of his passions--song lyrics--to probe spirituality in the modern era: in particular "Into the Woods," by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.
Father George Cerniglia, SM, reflects on the lives of these two great saints and tells the story of Abraham Lincoln overcoming a fear of the dark during Father George's homily at the opening celebration for the SM Province of the United States.
