May 18, 1997. That unforgettable day will remain in my soul forever. I was next to Chiara when we walked together into the Malcolm Shabazz Mosque, both wearing our chadors. There was a very big crowd.
Culture of unity
Sunday, May 18, 1997, was a beautifully sunny, pleasantly cool day with clear air and a bright blue sky. I have a distinct memory of walking from the subway stop to the Masjid Malcolm Shabazz with Fr. James Loughran, a Franciscan Friar of the Atonement and, at the time, the New York Archdiocesan Ecumenical/Interreligious Officer.
A tribute to our copy editor Michael Murphy (1950 – 2015)
The spirituality of unity inspires our efforts in this direction, and we dedicate this issue to the demands and effects of working for a united world.
"This upcoming year of faith and new evangelization will shine a light on the fact that God is love."
