Mercury enters Libra on September 29 and will remain there until Oct. 17. Libra’s influence on anything will incorporate balance and justice.

There are some truths that are difficult to hear because they test the heart and shake the very foundation upon which our lives are built.

The doctor does not heal the patient. Patients heal themselves. What? Patients heal themselves.

Let me provide an example.  When a person goes to urgent care or the emergency room with a 104 degree temperature, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, persistent cough or stuffy nose the doctor most likely gives a diagnosis of the flu. The prescription given by the doctor will mostly be composed of antibiotics, pain killers (if needed) and probably a cough suppressant.  Antibiotics, pain killers and cough suppressants don’t cure the flu, but they treat...

E-mail Print PDF
In light of increased tensions and speculation over the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program, the Catholic Bishops of Arizona and New Mexico want to reiterate our strong and unwavering support for DACA youth so they do not have to live in fear of deportation. These young people entered our country as children and should have the opportunity to remain in our country to be educated here and to have opportunities to exercise their gifts for the enhancement of our nation.

Presently, DACA protects nearly 800,000 of these young people, while allowing them to live and work in our country without fear of deportation. Through DACA they have furthered their education...
