“. . . a new Catholic culture has gradually emerged in the United States, ….The establishment of the Tuscany Prize for Catholic Fiction has called forth that art, allowing readers to discern the new Catholic cultural flowering. And if this year’s prizewinning short stories are any guide, Catholic art in America is headed, once again, toward great things.”

—Joseph Bottum, author of The Christmas Plains, Essayist and Poet

Brother Michael remembers finding the girl standing in the doorway of the Tanzanian monastery where he lives. She is holding the remnants of her eyes in her hands—milky white orbs with pink muscle attached to them like the trails of twin comets. She doesn’t cry, but she trembles and quivers in the doorframe, and the other monks . . . find out that she can see from those eyes. . . .

“EYES THAT POUR FORTH” by Karen Britten – 1st Place Winner
