Letter To The Editor: What A Golf Tournament!

on September 25, 2016 - 7:54am

Mighty Warrior.

Most everyone knows the story of David and Goliath. How a small boy with a big heart took down the enemy’s prize warrior, who was a giant compared to most people. From there, David only became more famous in Israel. He led the king’s armies to many victories. He was revered for his courage and faith under great pressure and against great adversaries. 1 Chronicles 11 tells us that David was made king and then began fortifying the kingdom and building cities.

NMCCB Statement On Death Penalty Reinstatement

on September 21, 2016 - 1:47pm
ALBUQUERQUE  We, the Catholic Bishops of New Mexico, find the decision by Governor Susana Martinez to place the reinstatement of the Death Penalty on the agenda of a special legislative session to be irresponsible. 
The legislature spent a decade debating the issue, ending with a bipartisan vote that ended the practice of a state-sanctioned death penalty. This was a definitive decision and had ample discovery of evidence and debate. That decision should remain final.
The abomination of taking a life, the death penalty, needs to be addressed in a general session

Pastor Granillo: Encouraged

I remember being discouraged when I was a kid because we were “poor”. It didn’t help when my older brother would tell me about how great his life was back when him and mom lived in Chicago. He would brag about her great job and how his toys were so absolutely amazing. I would look at mine and think, “This is just not fair. I’ll never have what he had.”

As an adult, I think it’s still easy for me to look around at the world and think, “I am so far behind successful people that I could never catch up.” It can be discouraging for anyone when we
