In the spirit of Ferie d’agosto, the Italian August Holiday, the staff at Helena Daily is going to take a break from August 15 until September 4. We hope to enjoy the vestiges of summer with our families and get everyone ready to head back to school. See you in a few weeks! And happy feast!
In today’s collection, we have some great reflections on the likes of Flannery O’Connor, St. Therese and the late poet, Brian Doyle. And another royal wedding? This time it is Princess Eugenie. British Vogue has plenty to say about it. There is also a piece with excellent advice for helping those who are grieving, and Fr. Jeffry Kirby offers a thought provoking look at tomorrow’s feast of the Assumption. Don’t forget to get to Mass (HDOO*)!
*Holy Day of Obligation
Ah, Greece. In today’s collection is an article about how colors from international travels have inspired one woman’s domestic decor choices (such as this beautiful shot of Santorini). Catherine Pakaluk has a hard hitting but highly insightful piece on the economy of sex in our culture today. We also have a delightful look at the old-fashioned art of visiting and a great shoe to help you transition from summer to fall. And much, much more!
Get to know this beautiful religious order for women with Downs Syndrome in today’s collection. And if you ever wondered about the many rites of the Catholic Church, we have a diagram for you. We also have some great suggestions for Labor Day feasting and an article about the remarkable cathedral of bread made every Easter by a small Sicilian village. Have a great weekend!
