NEW! Forgiving Mother: A Marian Novena of Healing and Peace
Not all of us have grown up in a storybook family, with a storybook home, and storybook Christmas. For some, the past reads more like a horror novel, the scenes of which taunt us and throw a shadow over our joy.
Realizing I had to adjust my plans and even then struggled for success made me honestly feel my weakness, which made me realize even more how desperately I need a Savior, which made me yearn even more for the coming of that Magnificent Child on Christmas night!
The dogma of the Immaculate Conception – that Mary was conceived without sin and remained without sin throughout her life – is one of the hardest of the Church teachings for skeptics to believe.
On this Feast of St. Nicholas, join me for praying for the protection and well-being of children everywhere.
We make resolutions for the New (Calendar) Year so we can set goals that will help us reach toward self-improvement and growth. So, too, we should make resolutions for the New (Church) Year so we can set goals that will help us reach toward holiness and spiritual growth.
Advent is a project of sorts, the purpose of which is to ready our minds and hearts to welcome the Christ Child when he arrives on Christmas. The project of Advent is inner transformation – a mental, emotional, and spiritual renovation, if you will. To do this, you’ll need to make plans and gather the right tools for the job.
