In my experience of journalistic outlets in southeast Michigan, The Detroit Free Press has consistently displayed the most inflexibly liberal perspective, not only in politics (unsurprising in this Home of the Auto Worker) but also in general world-view.
Today at the online Features Section page, I was surprised to find (right under the link to the "Are you a Cosmo Girl?" quiz) a most beautiful profile of the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. I'm sorry to bore you about them, but I found this prayer-soaked essay one of the most inspiring accounts I've read in a long time. I'm not an official or unofficial "friend of the order"; most of what I know I have learned along with you as I've read these pieces.
Let's pray for the men and women who write feature pieces for newspapers and magazines, that they might take the opportunities they've been given to allow themselves to be personally touched and to communicate the spirit of the works of God that they see to their readers. I've written a note of appreciation to the article's author. It's the least I can do.
