Young Voices: More than five years ago, I had an idea for a column: a column of young voices in the National Catholic Reporter.
Young Voices: If there is anyone on the planet who if given the opportunity would not change something about him- or herself, I would love to meet them.
St. Paul's in Burlingame, St. Ambrose, St. Aidan's, St. Gregory of Nyssa, St. Mary the Virgin, Church of the Epiphany, St. Paul's in Oakland, Transfiguration, St. Mark's, Holy Innocents, Grace Cathedral, All Saints', Holy Name of Jesus, St. Cecelia, St. Gabriel's, St. Augustine's, Sts. Peter and Paul, Mission Dolores, St. Patrick's, St. Paul the Shipwreck.
Young Voices: As transgender individuals remain underserved by our Catholic community, an increased commitment to developing adequate pastoral resources is desperately needed.
Young Voices: St. Teresa of Avila witnessed women suffering in a church that did not value their gifts, so she set out to make changes.
Young Voices: Read freedom is a self-gift instead of selfishness. It's choosing the good of the other over your own pleasure.
Young Voices: One of the problems with forgiveness is that all too often, we view it as an act in an instant rather than a way over time.
Young Voices: Educating for a more just world begins in our own community of faith. It's easy to cry out for equality outside of church, but that needs to stop.
Young Voices: May we seize moments in the new year, meditating on the goodness in our lives in gratitude and in hope.
Although we may differ in styles and often in our theologies, all Christian traditions have insights to share, which extend from those differences.
