Catholic Prime Directive
If you’re into Star Trek at all, you know about the Prime Directive. It is Starfleet’s No. 1 rule dictating that there can be no interference with the internal development of alien civilizations. In the opening scene of the new movie Star Trek: Into Darkness, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) runs at top speed through a forest of weird red trees chased by the primitive natives of some planet he and the crew of the Enterprise are trying to save from a devastating volcano.

Every summer has a story. Do you remember summertime as a kid? Summer meant dripping ice cream, best friend days, late mornings, running through sprinklers…the “summer reading list!” Some of us dreaded having to spend our summer vacations reading, some of us loved it, but all of us did it.Today, children still have required summer reading.

Light of Faith: Reflections
Yesterday, Pope Francis published his document Light of Faith. In a matter of a few weeks it will be available in English (check it out on the Vatican's website). As I began reading it I was struck by the Pope's opening reflection on light and thought it was perfect for this first of our summer editions.
