Who are the Sisters of Life?
Last edited 8th July 2013

Each life is sacred. Every human person bears a totally unique image of the divine. We are not some meaningless product of evolution... Each of us is willed. Each of us is loved. Each of us is necessary. In the 20th century an eclipse of God led to a loss of the sense of the sacredness of human life. But in the shadow of evil, there is hope. This is what the Sisters of Life are all about - defending all human life through prayer and fasting. They are consecrated to protect and enhance the defence of human life.

Seminarians and Novices Flock to Rome for Special Event with Pope Francis
Last edited 3rd July 2013

Between July 4th and 7th, Rome will be the center of a special event dedicated to seminarians and novices from all over the world. According to the Vatican, the city will welcome more than 6 thousand people from at least 70 countries around the world. Most of these pilgrims will be youths, so the event will in a way be a preview of WYD in Rio. The train of celebrations in the Eternal City has been organized by the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization.

Does God Care Where I Work?
Last edited 1st July 2013

Certainly. However, the question that remains is whether you are using your gifts and talents to the best of your abilities. We all have a vocation — a calling — to express ourselves for who God has gifted us to be. For some of us, that calling directly relates to the way we make a living. For others, it may not relate directly, but instead relates to how we spend our time in other ways.
