Angels Always

I have been continuing to listen to the podcast of reading the Catechism of the Catholic Church in a year and trying to stay caught up. Today I listened to and read a couple paragraphs about angels. According to scripture, God created Heaven and Earth. Heaven is everything spiritual, including the angels who have will […]

It Is A Wonderful Life

My mom and I watched, “It’s a Wonderful Life” in 2 parts as she can’t sit and watch TV for long. We watched the ending tonight and were both bawling. I’m sure that was good for our sinuses. It is pretty easy for me to wave the white flag when things are going lousy and […]

Angels Among Us

A friend of mine’s mother was taken to the Emergency Room last night with difficulty breathing. She asked everyone for prayers. Of course she was pretty scared. Later in the day, her mom was doing better as she responded to the treatment she was given. My friend was thanking God and everyone for their prayers. […]

Little Decorating

Mom and I got most of her pre-Christmas projects done, so we were able to start a little decorating. I took advantage of a warm day a few weeks ago and got the outside lights up. Yesterday we got out the creche and her collection of locally handmade dolls. They took their place prominently on […]

Visions of Children

Today was First Communion at Mass. The priest spoke of the innocence of children. He said the children at their age are still open and connected to the spiritual realm. He suggested that when babies and infants smile in their sleep, they are seeing angels. He also said that when the children want to tell […]

Vastness of Prayer

Before I go to bed, I try to do an examination of conscience. Tonight I prayed the Penitential Act or Confiteor: I confess to almighty Godand to you, my brothers and sisters,that I have greatly sinned,in my thoughts and in my words,in what I have done andin what I have failed to do;through my fault, […]

Guardian Angels

This morning I was thinking about my dad’s care, which I often do. I still hope for that perfect answer. I was wishing there could be someone whose only task is to look out for him 24/7. Of course, I know God is. So is his guardian angel. I have a pill reminder app on […]

Light Adventure

My mom really enjoyed seeing the Christmas lights the other night and told her friend all about them when she came for a visit. She had never seen the couple special houses that we go to every year. We were surprised at that, so my mom invited her to come out with us and take […]

TSO Again

Tonight we continued the annual tradition of going to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert. My son purchased tickets for himself, his brother and family, and me as our Christmas gift. My sister was kind enough to come and stay with my mom. As my son said on the way home, TSO never disappoints. It was beautiful, […]

Our Unsung Hero

There was a Memorial Service today for the fallen Officer Eric Talley. I don’t mean to dwell upon it, but the words said about this man and his life are so inspirational. During this service, the priest from his local church spoke. Reverend Daniel Nolan, FSSP, of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church was quoted […]
