Lent has come again, and as it has, I've had a chance to reflect on something that I've been grappling for the past several years. What do I still believe about God and Jesus and the church?
My religious walk has taken me to several different places. When I was a kid, my parents took me to a Catholic Church and I was a fairly devout Catholic until my early twenties. That experience made me appreciate the beauty of ritual. Before Easter, my parents used to take the family to the stations of the cross, and I was always moved by the solemnity of that particular ceremony. I also gained a love for the saints, especially St. Francis of Assisi. The greatest gift that the Catholic Church has given me is a strong sense of economic justice from Catholic Social Thinking and the Papal Encyclicals. Though I disagreed with Pope John Paul II on many things when I was young, I admired his compassion for the poor and his work for peaceful alternatives to war. In the 1980s I also admired the nuns and priests who were fighting for the poor in Central and South America. Dorothy Day, the radical Catholic anarchist who founded the Catholic Worker newspaper and worked for civil rights, pacifism, and help for the poor, became a lifelong hero and influence on me.

I hope the Everyday Citizen readers do not mind this little bit of self promotion on my part.
I was just informed in a recent email about Comicpalooza, a two day comic book festival, which is holding the Fandom Awards show this year for comic creators. Among their awards is one for "Best New Webcomic".
