Vincentian In Action - One Young Man Blogs About his One Week on the Streets
Last edited 26th May 2015

Everything bothered me, every noise, every person, every thought! During our morning reflection I tried my hardest not to snap at other people. I kept reminding myself that I was feeling this way because I was tired and had a rough night. I've always believed it but now I actually know that when our guests at The Gubbio Project snap at us in the morning it isn't personal. How could you not be grumpy and frustrated after a night out on the streets?

Can Our Guardian Angel Help Discern God’s Will?
Last edited 26th May 2015

Discerning the will of God can often be a hard and laborious undertaking. However, one source for inspiration that we often overlook is our guardian angel. The English word “angel” comes from the Latin angelus, meaning “messenger of God.” The Latin stems from Greek angelos, which is a translation of the Hebrew mal'akh, meaning “messenger.”

A Reflection on How Even Works of Charity Cannot Eclipse Obedience to Christ
Last edited 25th May 2015

There is a passage in the gospels that breaks conventions and cuts to the core of what has come to be called the “Social Gospel.” To be sure, serving the poor is an essential and necessary part of our faith and we should all take part in this ministry. But the Gospel (Matt 26:6-14) also says that something else is even more important... Msgr. Charles Pope from the Archdiocese of Washington reflect on this challenging Scripture passage in this article.

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.

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.
