“We are deeply disappointed that the Senate was not able to come together in a bipartisan manner to secure legislative protection for the Dreamers,” the USCCB officials said in a joint statement Feb. 19.

Far better it is for you to say: “I am a sinner,” than to say: “I have no need of religion.” The empty can be filled, but the self-intoxicated have no room for God.”

― Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

 

“Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be – and becoming that person.”

Mayo sinks game-winner as St. Elizabeth trips up top-ranked Conrad

By

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – Ber’Nyah Mayo has done much of her damage this season for the St. Elizabeth girls basketball team from the outside, raining down three-point shots on the Vikings’ opponents. But on Feb. 16 against Conrad, the No. 1-ranked team in the state according to 302Sports.com, Mayo went inside, to great effect.

Mayo took a cross-court pass from Arianna Henry and drove into the lane, splitting three defenders and putting up an off-balance scoop shot off the glass for the last two of her 30 points, giving St. Elizabeth a 55-53 win in front of an electric crowd at the St. E Center. The fourth-ranked Vikings grabbed perhaps their most impressive win of the season, while the Red Wolves suffered their first loss to an in-state foe. Read more »
