Catholic schools include God’s truths throughout curriculum

By

 

Do you recall the second question of the Baltimore Catechism, “Why did God make you?” (The first question was “Who made you?”)

For those who didn’t study the faith from the Baltimore Catechism, you learned the same answer to Question 2, but just in other words. The answer is, “God made me to know him, to love him, and to serve him in this world, and to be happy with him forever in the next.”

This answer to Question 2 is the theme for Catholic Schools Week 2017. Read more »

Catechetical Corner: Lives of the levitators

Church history includes the stories of many saints who could fly

 

The year was 1967, and actress Sally Field, who would go on to be an Academy Award-winning star, landed the lead role in a series called “The Flying Nun.” The premise of the show: Sister Bertrille (Field) was a novice in a religious community in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The sisters wore a cornette-styled habit, similar to those worn by the Daughters of Charity. That style of habit features large starched pieces of white cloth that jut out like a wing on either side of the head.

 

Creature of Habit

When wearing her habit, Sister Bertrille, who was small and lightweight, found that when the strong winds around San Juan kicked up, she was able, with the help of that habit, to rise up and fly. The theme song as sung by Field in the first episode of the show sums up the premise: “Who needs wings to fly? Certainly not I … as long as there’s a habit standing by, who needs things like wings to fly?”

Yes, a ridiculous premise; but a show that is well-remembered by many. And the show was not a fly-by-night enterprise, but lasted three seasons on ABC. Read more »
