Our Lady Heals Again

I had been getting tired of wearing a bandage on my thumb and not being able to use it since I cut it so bad a few weeks ago. But, the doctor said it would take a long time to heal. I didn’t get a definition for exactly what “a long time” meant, so I […]

Bells and Angelus

Yesterday we received an email from the pastor of our parish talking about hosting live events today being the Solemnity of the Annunciation. He would celebrate Mass and share it on social media. Also, the church rings the bells every day at noon to announce the time to pray the Angelus. Today the priest would […]

Many Lady’s

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. My parents and I got out our prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes that we try to say every night and we talked about the different devotions there are to different “Lady’s”, yet all being the same Mary the Mother of Jesus. As we prayed, it […]

Unique Marvel

Tonight, my mom read a quote from Pablo Casals. It read in part, ” . . . You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. . . . And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like […]

Love Through a Child

I chatted with a friend today who shared an adorable picture of her granddaughter. The toddler is about 1 1/2 years old and full of energy. The photo caught an intimate moment of the little girl stretching up high on her tiptoes so she can reach the face of a Mother Mary statue to give […]

Contemplating Mary

This morning when I got in the car to go exercise, I turned on the radio which was set for Christmas music. The song, “Ave Maria” was on. It reminded me that today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. When my parents and I read a meditation in the morning it suggested […]

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.┬áThe 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, […]

Fatima Rosary

When we saw the Fatima statue the other night, we received a little booklet that gave details about the apparitions and some prayers. My mom read some of the booklet this afternoon and we talked about how if everyone felt their prayers could actually make a difference in this world, more people would be committed […]

Our Lady of Fatima

I have been hearing about the 100 year anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima – when Mary the Mother of Jesus appeared to 3 children in Fatima, Portugal. The other day, my mom found information in the bulletin that one of the travelling statues of Our Lady of Fatima would be in […]

More Than Physical

Today is the Solemnity of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. That is a lot of words that basically means it is the day that the Catholic Church celebrates the fact that Mary, the Mother of Jesus, was born and lived completely void of any sin. It makes sense that […]
