I formally joined the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil Mass in 2014, but my belief had been Catholic for months before that. Since that time, I have remained certain that becoming Catholic was the single best decision I’ve ever made or will ever make. Closeness to Christ through the sacraments, especially the Eucharist (communion) is something I could never again live without. Unity of belief with the successor of St. Peter, the Pope and...

Lil Miquela is a person — at least, that was the initial controversy. The singer/fashion model garnered widespread viral fame in the last two years due primarily to the possibility that she is, in fact, not real. Accounts in her name have been on Twitter and Instagram since April of 2016, the latter recently hitting one million followers. In many ways, she offers similar content to other young, working artists on social media: pictures of...

The final issue of the 2017-2018 Trinitonian is here, and as expected it’s full of bittersweet nostalgia as seniors reflect on their memories at Trinity. However, that reflection doesn’t have to start and end with those who are about to graduate. We, who will be staying behind to finish our studies in the upcoming semesters, should take a moment to look at our accomplishments so far and see what we can do to enhance those...

Most weeks, the opinion pages of the Trinitonian are filled with only our staff writers’ voices, supplemented by the occasional faculty columnist. In itself, that’s no problem — we employ talented student columnists because they are good writers with relevant opinions to share, and we seek out professors to share their views, too. But we also open our opinion pages to our readership, inviting you to submit short letters to the editor as a reaction...

For many, having an abortion is a life-changing decision. For the advocacy group called Abortion Hurts, God Heals, the post-abortion healing process starts with one’s faith. Guest lecturers from the group joined Tigers for Life (TFL) to share their stories and to promote healing. TFL welcomed roughly 20 students to the Tehuacana Room on Monday, Jan. 22, to listen to these testimonies of grieving and healing. After offering their experiences to the group, the women...

The Dining Services Request for Proposal (RFP) Committee decided early this September to reconsider Trinity’s dining vendor. Committee members, including Paul Wright, chair of the committee and director of business operations, and Bruce Bravo, senior director of conferences and auxiliary services, are evaluating Trinity’s dining needs and choosing a vendor that can best serve the university. Currently, Aramark is the dining vendor for Trinity. Aramark oversees the dining in Mabee, the Commons and Skyline. Although...

Political and moral opinions should be taken seriously. They’re opinions about the sorts of things that demand passionate belief and deserve fervent defense. If you’re not committed to your political beliefs, why hold them? And if you’re not going to act on them, are you really committed? Ever get a “˜common sense’ intuition that most here lean liberal? Yeah, us too. And the conservative student group Tigers for Liberty (TFL) gets away with painting the student...
