15 Powerful Prayers You Can Say in Just 15 Seconds!

Last edited 7th August 2018

There have been many days throughout this summer when I was on the verge of losing my mind due to obsessive tattling, the never ending muddy footprints on my hardwood floors and the bloodcurdling shriek of a toddler being tortured by her big brothers. During those moments I found myself only able to mutter a simple prayer “Come, Holy Spirit.” This was the only prayer I could say to bring about the peace needed to correct my children’s behavior without screaming.

I’m Not a Saint! I’m Ordinary! | Year of Youth Blog

Last edited 2nd August 2018

With the announcement that the Cause of Sainthood may be opened for GK Chesterton, it seems that the growing diversity among Catholic Saints isn’t likely be hindered anytime soon. Saints Joachim and Anne – the blessed parents of Mary, Mother of the Church – were early examples of married people who attained sainthood. And then, of course, there’s Saint Juan Diego – he wasn’t a priest or martyr, but a lay Indigenous man from the Americas who is credited with the movement surrounding Our Lady of Guadalupe. Then we had St Teresa of Calcutta – a woman who once appeared to doubt the existence of God.

It Took Having the World in My Hands to Realise That I Didn’t Want Any of It

Last edited 4th July 2018

In 2017, I moved halfway across the world. People began to comment that my life was ‘goals’ and that I was the definition of ‘living out my best life.’ They’re referring, of course, to my year-long exchange in Europe characterised by Instagram updates with a different country every week, badly-spoken German and independence that every young adult dreams about. Even the mere task of reflection feels boastful.
