Around this time of year, things typically slow down in this space. Our Catholic Herald usually has a reduced schedule during the summer, and I always take a bit of a "summer recess" from writing these columns.

Two very major things happened this past Friday -- the ordination of six men to the priesthood for the diocese, and the Supreme Court’s disastrous decision redefining marriage.
