Trust in God and the Mother of God

By Chris Sparks

I am a champion worrier.

Big projects, mountains of little details, imaginary difficulties, and the vision of the whole project tend to overwhelm me. Ephemera, the million and one details, distract me, and I do not pay attention to the one thing necessary — to God. I forget to focus on what I can do (the thing immediately before me) and lose sight of the one single time I have in which to act (the present moment).

Not Just Another Evening at the Theater

A Friend of Mercy, Jennifer Nelson of Rockaway, New Jersey, shares her family’s experience of attending a sold-out showing of “Love and Mercy: Faustina” on Oct. 28.

Marian Fathers Honor Mary and Launch 350th Jubilee Celebration

"May it be done to me according to your word." (Lk 1:38)

So said Mary at the Annunciation. And so echoed members of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception around the world today as they celebrated their patronal feast day, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, and renewed their vows.

The solemnity this year also marks the launch of an historic four-year-long celebration to mark the Congregation’s 350th anniversary.

First, let’s talk about the Immaculate Conception.

Are You Consuming Junk?

By Marc Massery

Turn to any page of St. Faustina’s Diary and you find spiritual gems, like this one:

Jesus: Do not be absorbed in your misery — you are still too weak to speak of it — but, rather, gaze on My Heart filled with goodness, and be imbued with My sentiments. … when you feel your strength failing, if you come to the fountain of mercy to fortify your soul, you will not grow weary on your journey (Diary, 1486).
