The Pope is on Twitter!

The Pope is on Twitter and a lot of people are wondering why that is important.  I think it’s important that the Pope use all social media to not only reach Catholics, but everyone.  And in the picture here, it looks likes he’s having a good time! Here are Pope Benedict’s first three tweets in... Read more »

Ten Things I Didn't Know About Advent

When I read Jimmy Akin’s article, 10 Things You Need to Know About Advent, I was a little taken aback about how little I actually knew about Advent! What is the purpose of Advent? What liturgical colors are used for Advent? Is Advent a penitential season? When does Advent begin and end? What is the role... Read more »

Do You Pray for the Dead?

Do you pray for the dead?  Do you pray for the souls in purgatory?  November is the month we set aside for the prayers for the dead, but it’s a subject that periodically comes up and it seems to be a lost practice among some Catholics. I pray for the repose of my mother’s soul... Read more »

Matthew Archbold’s (of the National Catholic Register) article hits the nail... Read more »

Modern Day Spiritual Attacks

Jennifer Fulwiler’s article of March 30 in the National Catholic Register about spiritual attack sent me reeling!  She is so right about this and yet it is rarely talked about. Fr. John Corapi’s current situation and Anne Rice’s conversion and then rejection of the church are prime examples of spiritual attack. In my own journey I have experienced spiritual attacks....

Nine Words And Heaven

I read an amazing article in the National Catholic Register by Jennifer Fulwiler entitled, “The Nine Words That Make Christianity Make Sense.”  Out of all the articles I’ve read by Catholic writers and bloggers, this one truly blew me away!  She also references Peter Kreeft’s excellent article, “Heaven.” Ms. Fulwiler points out that in Genesis 3:19 it states...

St. Teresa of Avila

In the February 2 editon of the National Catholic Register I was pleased to read an article by Cindy Wooden that Pope Benedict XVI is going to focus on women doctors of the church for his general audience.  I think the world needs to see the role of women in the Catholic church, but I... Read more »
