Faith and Proof
Tonight my mom and I watched the rest of the movie, “Song of Bernadette”. It contained such a beautiful quote by St. Thomas Aquinas, “To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” I Found God today in faith.
Our Lady of Lourdes Connections
Today is the actual Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. We talked about it this morning and my mom said she wanted to watch the movie, “The Song of Bernadette” from 1943. She said it was her favorite movie when she was younger. Before we watched the movie, we turned on EWTN. The station was […]

I Found God today reminded that He is the only one and only thing to hang on […]

Yesterday my mom and I bought some artificial flowers to put on my dad’s gravesite as they can stay there for another month.

It was a warmish sunny day today and I was happy to be able to get out. A friend of mine was suffering with shingles at the same time I had COVID. We both were feeling better, so I went to her house for lunch. It was wonderful to catch up. We shared our struggles […]

A friend’s mother is in the hospital awaiting a biopsy on a mass the doctors found. Today a woman prayed over her mom. And when my friend arrived to see her today, a priest came in for a visit. He anointed her mom and they were both able to receive Holy Communion. It gave them […]
