Hello and welcome! My name is Samantha and am a Catholic living in Chicago, IL. I am a sometimes a contributor for Catholic publications. I am earning an M.Div and M.A. in social justice at Loyola University Chicago with a passion for serving the underserved and the Church. While a parishioner at  St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco, CA, I fell back in love with God, my faith, with St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits, and felt called into ministry.

I hold a BA in English, theatre, and art history and MS in psychology. My writing reflects my creative passion, my love of the Catholic faith and liturgy, and social justice/human rights.  Inspired by the Jesuits, I seek to inspire good: “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” (“to the greater glory of God”).

All of the scriptures I use either come from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops or the New American Catholic Study Bible.  Being a former student of English literature, I love etymology and, therefore, use my Study Bible (and sometimes the OED) to find origins of words used in the biblical texts (Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, and Greek).

If you find my blog interesting, please share it!  Thank you for reading and feel free to contribute (positively) to the conversation.
