- Mainstream Christian Music – On Sunday February 10, Grammy Awards will be given to the top performers in music, including the genres of Gospel and Contemporary Christian music. Kim Lawton looks at the growth in Christian music, with strong sales and new success in the mainstream charts and interviews leading Christian recording artists–and 2013 Grammy nominees–TobyMac and rapper Lecrae.
- The Life of Dorothy Day – A radical and an anarchist who was arrested often for her protests against war and injustice, Dorothy Day founded the Catholic Worker movement 80 years ago, in 1933. Its soup kitchens continue to operate around the world. Deborah Potter examines the life of this woman who would convert to become a devout Catholic and a champion of the poor, and who now has the unanimous support of the U.S. bishops for canonization, having been called by Cardinal Dolan of New York “a saint for our times.”
