Thomas Moran has been the principal at St. Francis High School in La Cañada for the last 18 years. Still, he can't help but get excited when the new school year arrives. "The last couple days [before school starts] are quiet, kind of like the calm before the storm," Moran said. "It's energizing to have more people here, especially when the students come back. " St. Francis, founded by the Capuchin Franciscan Friars in 1946, began classes Thursday for the 2010-11 school year looking to carry on a 64-year tradition.

Q. Christian and Jewish faithful will begin to observe their respective holy days, with observances of Lent, Purim and Passover taking place all over the world. What does the Bible teach us about entering these holy days with a sense of prayer? I hate to give the pat answer for this question, but believers of all faiths understand that prayer is a way of life, not just an act we perform while we are in church or sitting down to eat a meal, or even when trouble is on the horizon.

CNN reported last month that two Florida school administrators face contempt charges and possible prison time for saying a prayer at a school luncheon. They face a non-jury trial Sept. 17.

Or should these men be ?taught a lesson? on the separation of church and state by giving them jail time? ? Did District Judge Casey Rodgers go too far in filing contempt charges against Principal Frank Lay and Athletic Director Robert Freeman of Pace High School in Santa Rosa County, Florida?

The Muslim holy month of fasting began Saturday and, for the first time, local followers of the faith have a nearby location to meet and practice their traditions together in what can otherwise be a lonely and challenging period of self-restraint, community leaders said. Muslims abstain from food, drink and sexual activity during daylight hours for the month of Ramadan, which follows the lunar calendar and will last until Sept. 19 this year. While local Muslims have either gone without attending traditional evening prayer services or have driven to other mosques in the past, this year will be different, said Mahmoud Nouh, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Glendale.

The morning after ghouls and goblins ruled the streets, more than 200 people gathered at the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA for the 20th annual Community Prayer Breakfast. Leaders of six local churches offered prayers in languages including Armenian and Hebrew. Reid Samuelson, board chair for the YMCA of the Foothills, said the goal of the event was “to kick off the holiday season with a time of thanksgiving and prayer,” with proceeds to benefit the Y's new chaplain program. Highlights included the Crescenta Valley High School choir's performance of “O Nata Lux,” which spurred the crowd to absolute silence so every nuance could be heard.

British theologian Daphne Hampson, author of "Theology and Feminism," argues that "religions have proved the ultimate weapon in keeping woman in her place. " How would you answer the question "Is religion bad for women?" Religious traditions are intimately tied to our social structure, and the place of women in society is much influenced in that way. I can understand how Daphne Hampson reached her conclusions with respect to women's rights, for example, that Christianity "is neither true nor moral," that there is "need for a paradigm shift in religion," even her decision to "discard Christianity," as she defines it. And yet she retains her deep conviction of God's existence.

Prayer is one of the most difficult, most intimate things you can do. You open yourself up and sometimes admit things about yourself to thin air that you wouldn’t tell anyone, not even your dog. It’s also one of the harder things to explain. I’ve already had to scrap twice what I had originally planned for this week’s column. I’ve had to consider all the questions: How do you pray? Why do you pray? When do you pray? With whom? Who prays more? Who prays less?

The Tidings (the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles) writer Anne Hansen last week wrote about a symposium held at Loyola Marymount University recently designed to encourage dialogue “among believers of many faiths.” The symposium focused on dialogue especially within the Catholic and Orthodox traditions. However, in the larger scheme of things, how important do you believe it is for brothers and sisters of other faith traditions to work together for unity?
