The Appearance to the Seven Disciples

The Appearance to the Seven Disciples.  After this, Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself in this way. Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee’s sons, and two others of his disciples. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We also will come with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore; but the disciples did not realize that it was…

Praying to End Abortion And Green Beer

Originally posted on Modern Catholic Woman:
This is one of my past posts, but I decided to repost for St. Patrick’s Day since that is when the story took place. Years ago I was asked to fill an open slot at a prayer vigil in front of a Planned Parenthood. I accepted the request and signed up for a slot that was mid-morning on March 19. The Planned Parenthood is located downtown and to get there I needed to take two trains. Due to the train transfer, I left home early to make the 9:00 a.m. train. By 9:30 I was…

No One Can be a Sincere Catholic And be Pro-Choice

For 43 years now, abortion has been legal in America. For 43 years now, Americans have been bombarded with abortion marketing to create the illusion that somehow killing an innocent human is not only justifiable, but a “right”. There are also some so called prominent Catholics in political positions feeding more misinformation, making it more confusing. It seems these politicians prefer money from the abortion lobby over God’s teaching on Life. Also, there are organizations with word Catholic in the their title, like Catholics for Choice (CFC), but are not affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church at ALL. They are…

No New Year’s Resolutions, Try Good Deed Beads Instead

Originally posted on Modern Catholic Woman:
Most New Year’s resolutions usually fail within the first month of the year. Instead of making resolutions, why not try daily sacrifices instead? I got the idea when I read about St. Therese of Lisieux and her “pulling beads”. St. Therese would carry in her pocket, a cord with beads on it. Every time she made a sacrifice, she would pull a bead to the other end. The sacrifices she made were gifts to God. The beads are called Good Deed Beads or Sacrifice beads and they are a powerful tool in effort for…

Let God Love Your Brokenness

We are broken. Each of us, through original sin, is broken in some way. Some brokenness is obvious, seen by others, while many can hide their brokenness a bit easier. Many of us feed into our brokenness with the end result of only shattering the broken pieces into shards and slivers. The end result leads to endless heart ache, emptiness and loneliness. This does not have to be. One thing you need to know is God loves you. God loves you right now, at this moment, brokenness, failures, falls and all. It is of the utmost importance that you remember…

I Have Declared Love on the World

Today throughout the world people are being persecuted for their faith. In America, religious freedom is on trial. Anti-Christian groups dominate the social media and if a Christian stands up for his faith, he is threatened with loss of income or even death. Mainstream media promotes, perpetuates and escalates the hate, as if to add gasoline to fire, just for higher ratings. I remember a story about St. John Paul II and I’m really not sure if this is true or not, but it was the inspiration for this collection of memes. One day during the Nazi occupation of Poland,…
