It’s the octave of Christmas—”the most wonderful time of the year.” I’m taking some moments these days to consider why this time of year is full of wonder…and also why the wonder is often overlooked.
It is fair to say that we Catholics are in the middle of the most terrible Church crisis in American history. What are we to do? Leaving the Church is not an option. But . . . EVERY Catholic is going to have to make sacrifices of their time for the sake of bringing about truth, justice, and future healing.
As a Communication scholar and media critic, I’m trained to ask not only how do we use media, but more importantly, how does that use change us? Truthfully, the “social media persona” is predisposed to making us less human.
