February Reflection from Brother Domenic

It is not my intention here to critique the media or to do an analysis of the quality of "news" coverage in our time. Suffice to say though that "news" as we used to understand it can be as seemingly normal as the national news broadcast on television or as bizarre as information through Buzzfeed. Of course, everything in between what might be called serious journalism and sheer insanity exist at our very finger tips literally every second of the day. Anyone, perhaps, most human beings today own a mobile phone that produces this increasingly demented sense of our world to us anytime we want and according to our own tastes and inclinations, and dare I say, sinfulness.I'm a new Text block ready for your content.
