Make Jesus Lord of Your Life
Last edited 22nd May 2015

The most important thing you can do to hedge your bets for a joyful life is to make Jesus Lord of your life. The most beautiful aspect of our Catholic faith, in my mind, is the truth that God loves each one of us personally and uniquely.

4 Things I Learned About Relationships From a Pope
Last edited 20th May 2015

Lesson 1: “Man’s capacity for love depends on his willingness consciously to seek a good together with others, and to subordinate himself to that good for the sake of others, or to others for the sake of that good,” wrote St. John Paul II. In other words: How ready I am to love depends on how ready I am to not be the most important person in my life. Love–real love, that is–requires us to reject selfishness. It requires us to be ok with making sacrifices when having made sacrifices is of benefit to the person we love.

Perpetual Solitude in “Frankenstein”
Last edited 17th May 2015

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein offers a warning to its readers by presenting a perversion of the creation story in Genesis. By the end of the novel, Victor Frankenstein’s egotistical aspiration to cause life has brought about destruction, solitude, death, and ultimately a permanent exclusion from human community, for both himself and his creature. This story and its consequences align precisely with and can be illuminated by John Paul II’s diagnosis of what he calls the “civilization of death” in his Letter to Families.

Letters to God: 5 Reasons to Keep a Journal
Last edited 14th May 2015

It’s one thing to want to pray more. It’s another thing to actually sit down and do it. And even when you do, there are an endless number of obstacles and distractions. So often I walk into the chapel and sit there with my brain scrambled. When there are 10,000 things going on at the same time it’s easy to get overwhelmed in prayer but if I write my prayer — things are different. Writing down my thoughts and prayers force me to focus on one thing at a time. My brain automatically tries to process a bagillion things at a time but working through my thoughts slowly on paper puts my soul at rest.

How Comparison is the Thief of Joy
Last edited 12th May 2015

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Don’t get me wrong; I think a healthy amount of competition is a great thing in life. It pushes us to aim further and higher, learn and develop our skills, and combat brain-rot.
