Right Trip. Right Time.

Timing is everything. When the perfect opportunity comes at a point in our life and we can take advantage of it, sparks fly. Such was the way with the pilgrimage I recently went on with my daughter, Lisa. When Lisa, invited me to accompany her on a two-week pilgrimage to Israel and Italy, I realized […]

Pilgrim Path

Recently, I ventured on an incredible pilgrimage to Israel and Italy with my daughter, Lisa. I’m looking forward to sharing photos and information about it in following posts. One thing I can tell you now is that it was memorable, moving, and spiritually uplifting. A pilgrimage is a special kind of a trip. It is […]

The October Rosary

Would you like to have 15 to 20 minutes of peace, lower your blood pressure, escape from the stresses of the day, and grow closer to Jesus? Pray the rosary and you can realize all of that and more. The rosary consists of the repetition of prayers including the Apostles’ Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, […]

Clearing out the Logs

If we don’t have enough opportunities in person, social media provides a platform for us to stand strong in our thoughts and beliefs. We have something to say, so we post it. But those thoughts and beliefs also include what we don’t like about others. If they aren’t following our path, they must be wrong, […]

She Trusted That God Had a Better Plan

“After eight years, Sister St. Theodore was sent to another school. She did not want to leave the children in Rennes, but she trusted that God had another plan for her. The new school was in the small town of Soulaines. When Sister St. Theodore was not teaching, she spent time studying with a doctor. […]

We are One Body

One of the greatest ways to strengthen our spirituality is by passing it on. We cannot share what we do not know is within us. In order to pass on our faith, we must recognize, name, honor, and cherish it. The practice forces us to have a clear understanding of our beliefs. We build on […]

Your Perfect Prayers

“There are many ways to show devotion, many ways to pray. Your journey to Mary is as individual as you are. There are no rules when praying to her. No one way is better than another. Mary listens to all prayers, whether they are crude or refined, simple or elaborate, silent or aloud. You can […]

Happy St Theodora/Mother Theodore Feast Day

Today is the feast day of Saint Theodora/Saint Mother Theodore Guérin. Known by both names, this incredible woman was a pioneer on the American frontier, evangelist, teacher, visionary, mentor, caregiver to the sick and poor, leader, and founder of the Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods religious community and the college known as St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

Pray for the Victims and Our Church

Perhaps like me, you thought our beloved Church fully investigated, resolved, and disclosed abuse cases to the best of its ability. We hoped this horrific period was behind us. We have learned otherwise. The number of people victimized by entrusted Church leaders either first-hand or through the protection of predators has astounded, disheartened, and embarrassed […]

Praying with Saints

“By baptism, all Christians are called to be saints. We are all to live our life in such a way that gives glory to God. Saints are people who are in heaven after living a life of charity and goodness. The Church recognizes some saints as such, but everyone’s life goal should be to strive […]
