Miracles Everywhere

I met with my prayer group tonight. We read ahead to this Sunday’s Gospel which is the raising of Lazarus from the dead. We talked about how God does miracles around us and for us all the time, but we may not necessarily be aware of them. Or perhaps we become aware of them, but […]

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 […]

Remembering Lourdes

Last night before bed, I came across a video of the pastor I worked for, who once again spoke to my heart. He talked about the upcoming Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and the World Day of the Sick, which is on Saturday. He told the story of the young girl, now known as […]

To Boast of Miracles

I listened to the Gospel reading this morning. It was the story of Jesus healing a man with leprosy and asking him not to tell anyone but the priests to see that he was clean and able to be part of the community once again. The man who was healed could not keep it to […]

Another Miracle

Last week I shared a story about a dog hero. Only a couple of days later, my friend was in distress because that same dog was now in the emergency room himself and the vet was only giving him a 5% chance of survival. I knew this tragedy was too much for my friend. She […]

Honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe

For many years, I have been wanting to have something beautiful to look at in the window well of my room. I thought about an outside saint or angel statue, but found them to be so expensive. This summer, my sister and I were out and about and stopped in a shop that contained all […]

Sight Without Pupils

I have been listening to the story of Saint Padre Pio over the past couple of days. He was attributed to many miracles and healings. One such healing was Gemma Di Giorgi. She was born blind – she actually had no pupils, which from a medical standpoint made it impossible to see. Through a series […]

Shia LaBeouf and Padre Pio

This evening I watched an amazing discussion with Shia LaBeouf and Bishop Robert Barron. Shia had admittedly hit rock bottom and experienced an incredible conversion when he was offered an acting roll to play St. Padre Pio. It was a very powerful video and I highly recommend it. https://youtu.be/hjxKG4mR3U4. I Found God today in an […]

Why Mass

Since it was snowing outside today, we participated in Mass online with one of my favorite priests. The topic for his homily was why should we go to Mass. He had several good points and examples that were uplifting instead of berating, which is part of the reason why he is one of my favorites. […]
