|Local churches celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday
April 05, 2013 at 1:45 pm
In the 1930s Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, and among the messages asked that a Feast Day be established in the Church the Sunday after Easter in honor of His Divine Mercy.
|God writes love letter with his flesh and blood
December 28, 2012 at 9:56 am
We will never fully comprehend the extent of the sacrifice God made by coming down to earth in such a concrete, tangible way, in human form.
|Exercise your spiritual senses
October 18, 2012 at 2:34 pm
The spiritual reality surrounding us is even so much more real than the natural, physical, tangible realm that we can see, hear and feel each day. It is but a matter of exercising our spiritual senses in order to recognize it.
|Is our greatest yearning being sated?
June 07, 2012 at 9:35 am
(Columnist’s note: The following is written primarily for Catholics who believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. And for all others who are open to this great mystery as well.)
|What is our disposition before God?
April 05, 2012 at 8:59 am
A good friend recently asked me to watch a Dr. Oz show she had DVR’d, where the guest was a psychic medium. The friend had questions about what was wrong with it because it seemed innocent enough and it seemed to be helping people and fostering love among relatives.
|Uniting with those gone before us
November 18, 2011 at 9:54 am
In my last column I wrote about the great responsibility we have to pray for our loved ones who have gone before us. I also wrote of the great grace we as Christians have in uniting with the other two parts of the Body of Christ who are no longer living on earth, and are either in Purgatory or Heaven.
|Meet my soul friends
November 04, 2011 at 9:15 am
I would like to share with you about some souls who have become very special friends of mine. This may sound funny, or even crazy to some, but it is very real to me,and I’m convinced of the truth of it.
|Are we all spiritually derailed?
October 14, 2011 at 9:16 am
God has created each of us with a very special purpose and mission in life; and if we strive to live it, we will find fulfillment and contentment no matter how bad things seem around us.*
|Saints defense teaches lesson
September 23, 2011 at 9:51 am
I’m sure many felt the same as I did Sunday if they watched the Saints game – Sorry for the opposing quarterback, but VERY happy for the Saints’ great strategies.
|St. Marks holds special Divine Mercy Sunday celebration
April 29, 2011 at 9:28 am
In the 1930’s Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, and among the messages asked that a Feast Day be established in the Church the Sunday after Easter in honor of His Divine Mercy.
|Ache for love satisfied during Christmas season
December 22, 2010 at 10:37 am
Yes, God is madly in love with us, but how many are able to receive the love and truly experience it?
|Heavenly Mother wants our attention
August 19, 2010 at 10:49 am
I want you to imagine for a moment that you are the mother or father of a young child who you love very much. Some of you may actually be in this role right now, or have been in the past.
|Can we satisfy our ache?
June 24, 2010 at 11:23 am
A perfect image of the disposition we are called to have toward God is that of a nursing child.
|Our hearts grieve for coast, so does God’s
June 11, 2010 at 9:04 am
In the recent coverage of Rep. Charles Melancon (representing Louisiana in the oil spill case), when he allowed the true grief of his heart to surface, I think he stirred the grief in the hearts of many of us who have grown up in this “Sportsman’s Paradise.”
|Divine Mercy Sunday: What does Jesus mean by complete forgiveness?
April 08, 2010 at 1:33 pm
(COLUMNIST’S NOTE: The following is primarily a Catholic devotion, but other Christian denominations can participate in it in their own way. His mercy is for everyone.)
|Has He Risen in Our Hearts?
April 01, 2010 at 9:29 am
(COLUMNIST’S NOTE: The following column touches upon the Easter Triduum which is a tradition of the Catholic Church and considered the holiest time of the liturgical calendar. But it is for all denominations as well because its primary focus is on Christ’s redeeming love for us all.)
|Saints finish strong! May we also!
February 11, 2010 at 10:39 am
What an exciting game! And what a comeback. But the Saints’ theme all season has been to “finish strong”. And, that is exactly what they did.
|Connection between Saints, fans impressive
January 28, 2010 at 10:39 am
These last two play-off games have been quite exciting. The first was almost surreal with how well they seemed to play; and the second one, VERY intense.
|Are we being deceived like Eve?
October 05, 2009 at 9:06 am
The fallen angel, Lucifer, is very alive and well in our world, and deceiving many. He was this way from the beginning with Eve. He lied to her and told her it was okay to disobey God (in a very subtle way where she had a good reason for disobeying him)… that she’d be better off for it. And, look where it got all of us.

Many in the world today, and even in the Church, do not understand the gift of celibacy. It can seem like a foreign, unhealthy concept. Even many celibates are floundering in their understanding of it. But in reality, it is the lifestyle chosen by one who has found the “pearl of great price” and wants to go and sell all he has to buy it.
