Mary and Litanies and Titles, Oh My!

Mary and Litanies and Titles, Oh My!

[ 2 ] September 9, AD 2014 |

My niece sent me a text the other day that said, ‘Thanks auntie.’ Auntie. It’s a title that I carry with such pride. One of the greatest joys in my life is being able to help mold the character of my nieces and nephews. Each of us hold different titles. From mother to father, sister, brother, […]

Martyrdom in Mosul

Martyrdom in Mosul

[ 4 ] August 13, AD 2014 |

When I heard of the atrocities happening in Mosul this past week, I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t. This is happening in our world today? I know there are bad things happening all of the time. I know there is evil. But I couldn’t wrap my mind around such brutality, such fierce evil. After […]

Modern Day Saints

Modern Day Saints

[ 1 ] April 22, AD 2014 |

This upcoming Sunday we will celebrate the canonization of two historical Popes, men who not only contributed greatly to the church but have loved with such passion and zeal, they illuminated Christ himself. As we look to their canonizations, we are reminded that we are all called to be saints. Every single one of us. […]

…and the Life of the World to Come

…and the Life of the World to Come

[ 2 ] March 25, AD 2014 |

***Spoiler Alert for The Good Wife*** The Good Wife is a Sunday night drama about the intricacies of law, life and love. I first became hooked a year ago after watching an episode with my mom. It’s her favorite show, and is now mine. Until last night. I can’t decide if it’s still my favorite […]

From Precious Moments to Ignatius Press

From Precious Moments to Ignatius Press

[ 3 ] January 28, AD 2014 |

I think I’ve owned a total of three Bibles in my life: 1. My pink Precious Moments Bible from my childhood. 2. The New American Bible (NAB) that showed me Catholics had ‘extra books’, given to me by the TEC community. 3. The one my homegirl, Shawn, the hippie mystic that she is, suggested I […]

[ 3 ] December 31, AD 2013 |

It’s that time of the year again, the last day of the year. A time for us to reflect, look back upon this past year of our lives and all it contained. The joys, the sorrows, the mishaps, the successes. The births and the deaths. It’s a time to reevaluate our lives. It’s also a […]

Tuesday Five: Liturgical Season of Advent

Tuesday Five: Liturgical Season of Advent

[ 1 ] December 3, AD 2013 |

Advent is a season of preparation, waiting and expectation, but society all around us says otherwise. Christmas has been sprawled out in supermarkets and department stores since mid-October, manger scenes spread across suburban lawns and the music, oh the music that is jingle belling and deck the halling… I can’t stand it. Yes, maybe I […]

Getting Back to the Basics

Getting Back to the Basics

[ 2 ] October 8, AD 2013 |

You’ve graduated from college, found yourself in your (dream) job and find that taking the time to pray just isn’t as easy/conducive as it was in college when you had your cozy Newman family, FOCUS Missionaries, and a quaint little chapel right in your backyard. In your college days you were, in a sense, awesome. That’s right. You […]

You walk into church  and find yourself in a pew surrounded by families on […]

The Gift of My Patron Saint

The Gift of My Patron Saint

[ 10 ] May 21, AD 2013 |

I didn’t choose my patron saint, she choose me. It was a breezy spring afternoon at wrap up week for National Evangelization Teams (NET) Ministries. Hanging out in Amery, WI at Camp Wapo was a chance to connect with friends and prepare ourselves to ‘face the real world’. As the crowd was gathering in the chapel […]
