Holy Souls Sodality

The Journey is On

by Fr. Dan Cambra, MIC

We Catholics are in the business of growing in holiness and bringing others along with us. Our journey toward Heaven begins with our singular resolve to identify our own sins, repent, and sin no more.

On the Feast Day of St. John Chrysostom on Sept. 14, I was doing a little studying up on this Doctor of the Church who died in the fifth century. I came across a homily of his that should interest all of us whose life mission is to help souls to Heaven.

Led back to the Rosary

It happens to most people at some point: Our prayer life can hit a dry spell. Over the summer, I (Fr. Dan Cambra, MIC) got a phone call from a Holy Souls Sodality member, Dr. Robert Kulo of Apache Junction, Arizona. He had recently emerged from an astounding 20-year "spiritual valley," during which time he could not bring himself to pray the Holy Rosary. He told me a beautiful story about how our Sodality played a part in his renewal in this powerful daily prayer. I'll let him tell you in his own words:

A Beautiful Assumption

By Fr. Dan Cambra, MIC

"Quality time," they call it. During the coronavirus lockdown, I have had the privilege of spending much of my time back home on Cape Cod caring for my recently widowed mother.

I was raised way, way out at the Cape's farthest-flung spit, upon a sun-kissed, pint-sized artist colony of cedar-sheathed, weather-beaten shacks leaning upon one another along narrow, crooked streets. I have memories of live music somersaulting out of every little dive bar while seagulls perched atop the rooftops, facing the wind and snickering like monkeys.
