National Catholic Reporter Feature

I was thrilled to see my first feature for National Catholic Reporter published last Saturday, March 21!

Read it here: Masses go digital with live streamed services; find out how to join

My favorite paragraph reads:

“This growing pandemic could, as this New Yorker article suggests, give rise to new forms of ritual and human behaviors — including religious rituals. In this new age of anxiety, Alonso, Erikson and other leaders have already begun to meet Catholics’ spiritual needs with creativity.”

“Age of Anxiety” is a reference to a famous work by one of my favorite poets, W.H. Auden. I included the line as a shout-out to Auden, and to my favorite journalist, Chris Hedges, who also loves Auden, and whose journalistic work continually inspires me.
