McKenna CenterDuring spring break, junior Jessie Bazan spent the week at the Father McKenna Center in Washington D.C., a daytime drop-in center serving some of the city's homeless men. She shares how the undying spirit of 62-year-old " Mr. Q" made a lasting impact on her life.
Prayer for those affected by recent tornadoes
In these days of Pentecost, scripture tells us that God sent the advocate in the form of fire and wind. Alas, the experience this week in Oklahoma shows us the destruction that can come through these same gifts of the Spirit.
Our hearts go out to all the people of the Great Plains whose lives have been affected by these devastating storms. Many lost everything they have worked for. We pray for those who have died, those who lost loved ones, and the many people whose lives have been shattered.
We ask God to make His presence known that all might feel His love as people begin to piece their lives together again.
