The anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul I was Friday, September 28.  What a wonderful leader we missed out on here on earth.  Long may he reign in heaven!

Catholic, My A$$!

Yesterday, I got a bit of flack for posting this picture that I saw in an email I got from Little Catholic Bubble.  I thought it was pretty funny and spot on, but a lot of people were offended by it. You should see the stuff I don’t post.  Like this or this.  Both of these videos... Read more »

Today’s first reading, Ecclesiastics 3:1-11, brought back many memories.  The first I had ever heard of this scripture was when the 1960’s group, The Byrds sang it.  I had no idea it was from the Bible back then. Enjoy your morning and bring peace to someone’s day.

St. Vincent de Paul's Guidelines for Facebook and Comment Boxes

Do you think St. Vincent had Facebook and comment boxes in mind? Jesus, the Lord, expects us to have the simplicity of a dove (see Matthew 10:16).  This means giving a straightforward opinion about things in the way we honestly see them, without needless reservations.  It also means doing things without double-dealing or manipulation, our...

The New Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice

“It’s all about a sadistic Catholic nun and people who abuse and torture people in a Catholic asylum,” said Bill Donohue of The Catholic League about the new television show entitled:  American Horror Story:  Asylum.

I tweeted that statement not too long ago and it started an interesting conversation.  I was asked which commandment I would be willing to break. I am the LORD your God. You shall worship the Lord your... Read more »

Celebrating One Year at St. Therese

This past weekend marked the first anniversary of singing at St. Therese Chinese Catholic Church for our choir.  It seems that in life, the best things that happen to us, happen in the most extraordinary ways. Our friend, Gent, called my husband one day.  We had not heard from him in some time, so my husband... Read more »

Servants of All

Suddenly it becomes all about power.  The argument is about who will lead once Jesus is gone.  Instead of seeking wisdom and desiring humility to glorify God, the power grab begins.   That’s what we do unfortunately. We are all potential children in Christ, so we have to watch our actions and ask ourselves, “What... Read more »

Some Women Speak For Themselves

I’ve said many times that the current battle over the HHS mandates and religious freedom in our country is the fight of our lives and that it’s far from over. There are other voices in the fight that you need to hear too. A good friend recently sent me a link to a video that... Read more »

Yes to You || Spoken Word

Thumbnail image for 'Yes to You || Spoken Word'
The topic of homosexuality and the issues around same sex marriage are very charged in our culture right now. The goal of this video is to communicate what the Church teaches about this topic. However, as the title would suggest, the underlying sentiment throughout the whole presentation is that the Church is a refuge of... Read more »
