On Love and Dignity and Dying

This post by Jason Welle, SJ is also featured on The Jesuit Post. Maybe by now you’ve heard the story of the California woman who shortly after her 29th birthday learned that she had brain cancer.

Before You Know It: Learning to Love

This post by Brendan Busse, SJ is also featured on The Jesuit Post. My memory stinks. It’s incredible how little content I actually remember from my own schooling.
