Pope Francis turned heads in 2013 when he told a group of priests: “This is what I am asking you—be shepherds with the smell of sheep.” Shepherds and sheep have long been metaphors for pastoral leaders, those who accompany communities of faith. Today, three Springfield Dominican Sisters who are veteran pastoral ministers talk shop about their lives and ministries and share heartwarming stories about their experiences with the parishioners they love and lead.

Guadalupe: The Maternal Face of God

Guadalupe: The Maternal Face of God

December 9, 2021

Host Jeremiah Washington welcomes Sister Mila Diaz Solano for a conversation about the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, celebrated on December 12. In 1945 Pope Pius XII declared Our Lady of Guadalupe patroness of all the Americas. Her integration into U.S. Catholic culture has been greatly influenced by the devotion of immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries. Over time she has come to be understood as good news for the impoverished and oppressed of every nation.
