What do Catholics believe about Purgatory?

                          What do Catholics believe about Purgatory?  There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about Purgatory in recent years. I’m a convert and I didn’t learn anything about Purgatory.  My catechism wasn’t very structured and it wasn’t until much later that I started to... Read more »

What Do You Buy a Catholic for Christmas?

What do you buy a Catholic for Christmas?   And if you, as the gift-giver, are not Catholic, where do you even begin? Probably the most amazing gift I ever received, was an elegant Waterford Crystal rosary that my BFF (of more than forty years) gave me a few years ago.  She is not Catholic... Read more »

If You Wish to be Perfect

If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.  Then come, follow me. – Matthew 19:21 Well, I don’t want to be THAT perfect, and our Lord was not talking about following Him on Twitter, either.  *Sigh* But seriously, I know...

You Would Never Know that March is Women's History Month

With all the name calling lately, no one has mentioned that’s it’s Women’s History Month. “It’s different when Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin a “twat” or the c-word” or when Keith Olbermann calls Michelle Malkin “a mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.” Michelle Malkin has also been called a “coconut” (brown on the...
