My dearest daughter, there is
nothing that I would not do for My children. No sacrifice is too high.

WE MUST SEEK GOD, HE IS WAITING

We must seek God, He is waiting!
Do you remember how you felt when you were very young and your birthday approached? You were excited and anxious. You knew you certainly receive gifts and other special treats. But some things would be a surprise. Birthdays combine assurance and anticipation, and so do faith! Faith is the conviction based on past experience that God’s new and fresh surprises will surely be ours.

Women in the Bible

Naming the 333 women in the Bible
While some biblical women are nameless and silent figures, others are movers and shakers in their own rights.

By Alice Camille
ARTICLE YOUR FAITH
The Catholic canon of the Bible contains 73 books. Three of them bear women’s names: Ruth, Judith, and Esther. These three texts also make the actions of women their central concern. I consider them Exhibits A, B, and C in the argument against the Bible being a hopelessly sexist document. Why male editors gave the green light to the inclusion of these texts is the real mystery.

Beating Temptations

Beating Temptations
Jesus left the crowd and went into the desert where He was tempted by Satan. Temptation is bad for us only when we give in.
We should not hate or resent times of inner testing, because through them God can strengthen our character and teach us valuable lessons. When you face Satan and must deal with his temptations and the confusion he brings, remember Jesus. Jesus used God’s Word against Satan and won. You can do the same.
To be tempted is not a sin. Tempting others or giving in to temptation is sin.

Blessed Virgin Mary

Why was Mary a virgin?
Mary isn't a virgin for biological reasons, but theological ones.

By Alice Camille

My all-time favorite footnote involves a scholar’s wry gloss on the maps used by Jesus. Commenting on a passage in which Jesus had to cross into Gentile territory on his way to Jerusalem, the footnote reads: “This trip was evidently a theological necessity, not a geographical one. More direct routes were available.”

Your Last Day

Your Last Day
What if you were told this morning that today was to be your last day on earth? How would you spend its passing hours? Whom would you insist on seeing? Would your behavior differ radically from what it usually is?
Someone has wisely said: You should treat every day as if it’s your last one, because one of these days you’re going to be right.”

I can't remember a year when our country has needed Lent more.
Consider just a few of the season's themes:

Separation is negative, companionship is essential!

Separation is negative, companionship is essential!
Some people are lazy while others are workaholics. The lazy person, seeing the pointlessness of running here and there for success, idles away his time and hurts both himself and those who depends on him.
The workaholic is often driven by envy, greed, and a constant desire to stay ahead of everyone else. Both extremes are foolish and irresponsible.
