Walking with Mary

I continue to be awe-stricken by Our Blessed Mother’s walk.  Before she was ever considered “blessed” she had to face the stares and rumors which, more than likely, hurt her. Yes, she was living a life of faith but no one (except Elizabeth) knew it.  She would be just about 8 weeks or so, maybe… Read more »

Day 1 Pentecost Novena

I was very apprehensive about praying this novena in public.  Once again, God was stretching my boundaries. I was happy when it was only my family, myself, and one other person. I was able to pray the novena without too much stumbling and after praying at 7:30 a.m. (Sharp–mind you), I could feel such an… Read more »

Mary’s Lone Walk

How do you think she felt; carrying Our Savior?  Who was she going to tell besides Elizabeth that would believe her without a doubt? Do you think they… Read more »

Epistle of St. Paul to Titus 3: 6-19

“Whom he hath poured forth us abundantly, through Jesus Christ our Savior;  That, being justified by his grace, we may be heirs, according to hope of life everlasting. It is a faithful saying: and these things I will have thee affirm constantly: that they, who believe in God, may be careful to excel in good… Read more »

Easter

“The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom you put to death, hanging him upon a tree.”    Acts 5:30 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA) Easter What a Glorious celebration!! The celebrating of life never-ending. Why do we fear our own mortality? We have been promised a castle, in which there is no… Read more »
