ONE @ 50: You Gave Life to the Dead

In honor of ONE magazine’s 50th-anniversary year, the CNEWA blog series, ONE @ 50: From the Vault, aims to revive and explore the wealth of articles published in ONE magazine throughout its history.

for you made us in your image and likeness.

your salvation in every place.
