By Philip Kosloski, Aleteia - up until the 18th century domes were used almost exclusively in sacred architecture… One of the most ancient and well preserved domes is that of the Pantheon in Rome. It was built in the 2nd century and proved to be a model for all other domes after it.
Fr. Paul D. Scalia, The Catholic Thing - The evil one constantly prowls about looking to sow his weeds in the Kingdom. So the parable of the weeds among the wheat teaches us not just about the Kingdom, but also about how to guard it.
By Calah Alexander, Aleteia - I remember the quiet of my dad’s parents’ house. It was an almost magical stillness, broken only by the ticking grandfather clock. Granny and Granddad were people of few words, which was sometimes hard for a chatterbox like me. But their stillness left a lasting impression on me, as did the way they showed me how to do things instead of telling me.
