Iraqi Christian Girl teaches ISIS the Power of Forgiveness
Last edited 22nd May 2015

Myriam, ISIS may have weapons and financial power, while you don't even have a house. But you are much stronger because of the power of forgiveness and love that Jesus has planted in your little heart. "By their fruit you will recognize them" - Matthew 7:16.

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.

Fr. Robert Barron on Why the Ascension of Jesus Matters
Last edited 15th May 2015

We tend to read the Ascension along enlightenment lines, as if Christ has gone to a distant, irrelevant place. The biblical reality is this: Jesus, in ascending into heaven, has not gone "up, up, and away." Rather, he has gone to heaven to direct operations more fully here on earth. Jesus has not abandoned earth, but rather, he intends to return in order to bring about the full reconciliation of heaven and earth. In the mean time, he has commissioned his follows to begin that work now... within the Church.

Do Catholics Pray to Mary?
Last edited 15th May 2015

Do Catholics “pray to Mary”. No. Because we are “surrounded by a vast cloud of witnesses” it is best to say we pray “with” the saints. They are our prayer partners, and as the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Queen of that army of prayer warriors she is the primary saint with whom we pray.

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.

First Apparition - Our Lady of Fatima
Last edited 13th May 2015

May 13 1917 was a beautiful Sunday in Portugal’s rugged Serra de Aire uplands. Sunshine bathed the olive groves. The fresh green of Springtime in the meadows and olive groves contrasted with the vivid red of poppy flowers. The happy voices of three children playing as they watched over their families’ flocks rang out in the clear air.

Ethical Fashion: Do You Care that a Slave Made Your Dress?
Last edited 12th May 2015

I adore a store called Forever New. It is full of stunning clothing and everywhere you look, diamante glints. For a magpie like me, this store is my nest. Half of the dresses in my wardrobe are from this shop. Forever New has received most of my income to date, and at this rate will probably end up with my inheritance too.So when a friend told me they used slave labour to produce the gorgeous clothing…I kept shopping there.
