Things to Remember When Everything is Falling Apart
Last edited 1st February 2016

I’m writing this for myself. For the days when outside the sun is shining but inside my heart is gray and stormy. For when I can’t imagine that everything can be normal again. This is for the days when no one understands and the pain feels too heavy. When my thoughts won’t stop spinning, creating a tornado of emotions I’m not quite sure how to handle. This blog is for those days. I hope you remember to come back to this, to memorize these truths, and internalize them so deep in your heart that you always know you can turn to them. I’m writing this for me, but I know you might need it too someday.

Ways to Read the Bible
Last edited 14th January 2016

Perhaps you gave up reading it because it seemed irrelevant to your everyday life or because it became too hard to follow. If so, Fr. Mike Schmitz offers several reasons for you to pick up your Bible again, see it with new eyes, and allow it to transform your life.
