Divine Love Endures

I saw a quote today from Fr. John Waiss that touched my heart.“In heaven, we will see God face-to-face, with a love that’s deeper and greater in intensity than anything we have ever experienced before. Divine love is what endures.”I also heard that people are now so consumed with living a long time, we have […]

Labyrinth Goal

Last year I took an overnight retreat at a monastery located not too far from home tucked away in the woods. When I left, they said I was welcome to come any time to visit or walk the grounds. I had some time to myself today and decided to go there. A few months back […]

Virtual Peace

Today was the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is a celebration to once again remind us of the tremendous love Jesus has for us and how He holds us close in His heart. This afternoon I thought it would be good to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet. I came across the National […]

Grinch Returned Easter

A friend shared a reflection with me that was written by a retired Christian pastor. It really touched my heart, so am sharing it here. THE GRINCH THAT RETURNED EASTER Sometime in the last 2000 years—Resurrection Sunday got hijacked. It got commercialized into bunnies and eggs, chocolate rabbits and “tip of the hat” church attendance. […]

God is Still With Us

A family friend called this morning and told me that her sister suggested she listen to the homily from her parish. Our friend listened to it and thought I would really enjoy it as well, so she told me how to find it. My parents and I sat down this evening and listened to it. […]

His Word is Alive

The completion of my first semester of the Bible Course included a test and a reflection. I also had to choose 2 scripture verses to memorize and we shared them in our small group. A couple of days ago, I was reading the daily Mass readings and one of them struck my heart: Hebrews 4:12 […]

Faith of a Grieving Widow

Not too long ago, there was a tragic shooting resulting in the death of a local police officer. Since then, there has been an outpouring of support for the family – even 2 men in prison sent them some money. The wife has remained out of the spotlight until the other day. She read a […]

Ready for Heaven

Today at my exercise class, one of the ladies talked about her grandmother who lived to 92 years old. One evening when the woman was visiting, her grandmother told her good-bye and that she was going to heaven. The woman and those with her responded as most would, telling her that wasn’t true and they […]

Clothed With the Sun

Today, the Catholic Church celebrated the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, so my parents and I went to church this afternoon. One of the scripture readings was from Revelation. The book is about a vision that the Apostle John experienced. It describes, “A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, […]

Super Hero

My son spent some time just hanging out with us today. Somehow we got on a long extensive conversation about super heroes, comic books, and their stories. We recently watched one of the Avengers movies, so perhaps that is how it all started. We talked about the many threads of the different super hero stories […]
