Book Review: ‘Room of Tears’ by Linda Merlino

Room of Tears is a spiritual story about heroes, miracles, and faith. It’s also a story about love, death, and tragedy.

In the summer of 2041, 71-year-old Diane O’Connor invites Friar Antonio Ortiz to her home in Queens. The reason is nothing short of mysterious: she has a request for him, which entails giving him a letter and a recording…

Large clouds of smoke were darkening the sky and screams of pain, fear and helplessness were deafening the big apple. It was chaos:  Nobody knew what was happening. A cold intense fear spread across the city and on the faces of the people when they realized they were under attack; terrorists had infiltrated the country.  That heartbreaking tragedy had awakened the world on September 11, 2001.

A Priest, a Rabbi and an Imam Walk into a Bar

You’ve heard those jokes before. The jokes that start out with religious leaders walking into a bar and end in some off-color punchline revolving around body parts or selling hair, right?
