A very blessed and grace-laden New Year to all of you! 2020 had been a very challenging year for all of us. We will not forget this year, for we all suffered when COVID 19 broke out and spread like wildfire in all parts of the earth. Suddenly, we found ourselves - rich and poor, [...]

We know that Mary is blessed, full of grace. But did she also have some struggles while she was still in this world? Was her faith also tested just as ours is tested? Did she ever feel the loneliness of being an outcast because she was choosing God and His holy Will and because she [...]

On December 8, the Catholic Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. As Catholics, we accept and believe this doctrine.

When I was a young sister, I read a small book entitled: The Miracle of Thanksgiving. I could not remember the author's name, but this little book taught me a lesson that I carry with me up to this present time: that gratitude works wonders. And especially when the "thank you" is directed to our [...]
