What is the Chair of Peter? There is a physical meaning to this "chair." But we celebrate on February 22, the spiritual significance of it. According to Pope Benedict XVI: Our "liturgy celebrates the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter. This is a very ancient tradition, proven to have existed in Rome since the [...]

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, each faithful, after having attained the age of discretion, is bound by an obligation faithfully to confess serious sins at least once a year.” (CCC 1457). Is that all? Scripture says "the just man falls seven times (a day)" (Prov. 24:16). An honest self-examination will reveal that [...]

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. But do we really understand what it means? Here are two videos of Fr. Mike Schmitz and Dr. Edward Sri explaining this Doctrine in a way that we can [...]

The Power of Thanksgiving

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 [...]

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

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?

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!

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 [...]
