Pope Francis’ Encyclical gives all a reason for hope

La historia en la naturaleza
This past month, I spent a lot of time outdoors in places where history was alive. As the days tremble with a bite of cold and the curtains close in sooner than before, it usually forces many inside earlier in the day and more often. I remained resolved to try and fight this notion. My first atte....
