In this our present time, we have a great and outstanding, yet humble philosopher with a good sense of humor in the person of Dr. Peter Kreeft. You've got to listen to all his YouTube conferences or read the many books he has written and published, and it will prove to you that he is [...]

The Power of Thanksgiving

2020-11-26T20:39:54+00:00November 22nd, 2020|Categories: Devotions, Invitation, Meditation, Sharings|Tags: , , |

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 [...]

2020-10-22T21:32:24+00:00October 8th, 2020|Categories: Anecdote, Culture, News, Sharings|Tags: , , |

Germany, and other German-speaking countries, have a beautiful custom called "Erntedankfest" (translated: Harvest Thanksgiving Festival). In Germany, they celebrate this on the first Sunday in October. They offer thanksgiving for the good harvest, and they implore God for His blessing for the fruits of the field. Being a German-speaking community, with half of our number [...]

Happy Birthday, Mama!

Birthday of who's Mama? And who is the Mama? Today, September 8, the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of Mary's Birth. We, Catholics, indeed celebrate our Blessed Mother's birthday and we give her gifts of love and sing songs of gratitude and joy. It is just fitting and right that we call her "Mama." Our [...]

God Protects His House

2020-08-29T15:31:53+00:00August 27th, 2020|Categories: Devotions, Meditation, Sharings|Tags: |

I read from the Feast Magazine, June 2020 issue an article by Bo Sanchez entitled: God Protects His House. I know I am the "house" of God, the "temple of the Holy Spirit," but I have never seen it the way Bo described it. His reflection is simple but profound. Read the article. I scanned [...]

What do you have?

2020-08-27T09:17:08+00:00August 20th, 2020|Categories: Conference/Talk, Meditation, Sharings|Tags: |

A few days ago, I was meditating on the Gospel of Matthew about the multiplication of the loaves. (Mt.14:17-21) This Scripture passage gives me the confidence that Jesus will multiply what little I have. If I offer them to Him, He will bless many people through them. I have also learned to believe in others' [...]

Footprint

One of my fellow sisters gave me a small stone in the shape of a footstep. She said: "Remember to follow Jesus - always!" I was so fascinated by it. It looks like a footprint. But it's only one - where is the other pair? My sister said: "Remember to follow Jesus - always!" I [...]

Mary, my Mother – and yours, too!

2020-08-13T09:18:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Anecdote, Devotions, Meditation, Prayerlife, Sharings|Tags: , , |

I was not very devoted to Mary as I was growing up. Yes, I believed in her. I accepted her as our and Jesus' Mother. But only that. Why? Maybe because I was not particularly pious. I go to Holy Mass on Sundays only now and then. I did not pray the rosary unless it [...]

The Song of Songs

2020-07-20T19:30:27+00:00July 20th, 2020|Categories: Conference/Talk, Meditation, Sharings|Tags: , , |

The Song of Songs or the Song of Solomon is a Book in the Old Testament that is quite difficult to understand. This Book is a love-poem that speaks of God's love for his people. But it also speaks of a soul's relationship with her Lord. Every time I read this, I feel invited to get [...]
