"Remember to come back in 100 years!" school parent Emily Schiltz encouraged the students filing past her.

As the line of nearly 500 students at St. Margaret of Scotland filed through the lower level of St. Joseph Hall, each tossed a piece of gravel into the ground in a small corner near the library, slowly encasing the time capsule placed there.

Jenny Wehde never imagined that the dishes she keeps in her china cabinet would become part of the inspiration for the newly renovated St. Paul Church in St. Paul.

FRENTE A LA CRUZ | Jesús revela Su Sagrado Corazón al buscar a aquellos que necesitan su misericordia

Esta semana celebramos el Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (8 junio) y el Inmaculado Corazón de María (9 junio). Sus corazones nos dan una lección y un desafío.

Primero, considere el instinto de Jesús para volcarse hacia la gente que más necesita su misericordia. Cuando Jesús fue criticado por esa tendencia, Él simplemente respondió: "Los sanos no tienen necesidad de médico sino los que están enfermos". Su corazón lo llevó a estar en medio de la enfermedad, porque es ahí donde un médico puede hacer un bien mayor.

BEFORE THE CROSS | Jesus reveals His Sacred Heart by seeking out those needing mercy

This week we celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus (June 8) and the Immaculate Heart of Mary (June 9). Both of their hearts provide a lesson and a challenge for us.

First, consider Jesus' instinct to turn toward the people who most need mercy. When Jesus was criticized for this tendency, He responded simply: "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do" (Mark 2:17). His heart drew Him to be in the midst of sickness, because that's where a physician does the most good.

FRENTE A LA CRUZ | San Justino Mártir es un gran ejemplo para nosotros

El primero de junio celebramos la Fiesta de San Justino, Mártir. San Justino nació alrededor del año 100, estaba inmerso en la filosofía griega y la cultura de su tiempo. Se hizo un creyente y puso su educación al servicio de la defensa de la fe cristiana, por la que fue martirizado alrededor del año 165. Su vida y teología proveen buenas lecciones para guiar nuestra interacción con la filosofía y la cultura de nuestros días.

BEFORE THE CROSS | St. Justin Martyr provides a great example for us

On the first day of June, we celebrate the Feast of St. Justin Martyr. Born around the year 100, he was immersed in Greek philosophy and the culture of his day. He became a believer and put his education to use defending the Christian faith, for which he was martyred around 165. His life and theology provide good lessons for navigating our interactions with the philosophy and culture of our own day.
