Dec. 7, 2011 - I have been blessed to make many pilgrimages in my Catholic life. I have walked an ancient pilgrims' path in Spain. I have prayed in Lourdes, where our Blessed Mother appeared. I have walked in the Holy Land, in the footsteps of Jesus. This June, I will lead a 10-day pilgrimage to the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin, Ireland.
Nov. 2, 2011 (Roxanne King, DCR) - It’s called the “Emerald Isle” and the “Island of Saints and Scholars.” Lush, green Ireland has a rich history of Catholicism dating back to the fifth century and of contributions to world literature, music, dance and theater.
