Thank You!

The Church recalls Jesus' pure and complete offering to the Father by celebrating the Eucharist, a word that means "thanksgiving."

What's With That Fig Tree, Anyway?

As Thanksgiving was approaching, my thoughts were drawn to two particularly challenging passages from Scripture.

Abortion, Forgiveness and Living Divine Mercy

For Catholic men and women, the Sacrament of Reconciliation must be at the heart of the healing process.

My Brother's Keeper

The students were thinking more about candy than the communion of saints.

Two Women, One God, One Message of Mercy

"I was born to be a part of this holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church," she proclaimed, "and my Heavenly Father knew it."

The Visions and the Genocide

A survivor of the Rwandan genocide, she knows all about the Marian apparitions in Kibeho and about Our Lady's visions that came to life.

Words Can Hurt

Are there instances where your harsh words may have wounded someone you love?

If You Want to Make Jesus Happy

The Diary explodes the well-worn myth that God is distant, vague, and exacting. The God in St. Faustina's life was affectionate, eager, open, intimate, and consumed with yearning.

She's a woman who sets conditions —┬áconditions based on His limitless love.

Scars of Sin

Saint Faustina visited Czestochowa on her way to the convent in Vilnius soon after taking her perpetual vows. She shared some interesting thoughts about that visit.

Where Are You God?

It is these dry spells that allow us to grow in holiness, and allow our spiritual roots to grow deeper and closer to Him.

I have a confession to make. I know that to be the wife God wants me to be — to be fully human, made in the image and likeness of God — I need to crucify my selfishness and make a pure gift of myself to my husband and to Christ. But I don't know how.

Are You Full of Hope?

We live in a world of violence, corruption, gloom, and doom. Many are living without hope and surrounded by violence, poverty and despair. Yet we know that God does not make junk. We need hope, and we must have something to hope in.

'More Graces Than Asked'

For months she had prayed before the Blessed Sacrament like Jacob wrestling all night with God. "I'm not leaving You alone until You heal me," she had told Jesus, clinging to Him as persistently as her shame clung to her.
