  • “On Catholic literature,” The Catholic Spirit, Aug. 19, 2004. According to reviewer Emilie Lemmons, “In these first few years of the new century, ‘A new generation of young people in particular is eager to learn more about the faith’s teachings, culture and traditions,’ writes literary critic and University of St. Thomas Catholic studies professor Mary Reichardt. When it comes to educational materials on literature, the need is ‘particularly acute,’ she adds. In her latest book, Exploring Catholic Literature ( Rowman & Littlefield , New York ), Reichardt provides an introduction to 12 Catholic literary masterpieces — from St. Augustine ’s The Confessions to Annie Dillard’s Holy the Firm.”
  • “College students turn from pizza to peer support,” The Catholic Spirit, Aug. 19, 2004. “Eating buffet-style meals in college cafeterias is another factor. ‘Most cafeterias have many food options and endless quantities,’ said Birdie Ramacher, health educator at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. ‘This can provide some challenges for students. Many young adults are unaware of what a balanced diet consists of and what the correct serving sizes are.’”
