Suffering: A Highway to God Luke 9: 22-25
Thursday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time

The Narrow Path of Life Resolution: To follow Christ, I will choose a small mortification that I will practice during the entire Lenten season.
Am I Doing the Right Thing? I have been thinking about a religious vocation for quite some time now. In fact, it has been three years. I have been praying, and I began talking about this with friends and some of the sisters at my parish.

The Vocation of Mary This is a festival of the mother of God whose skin is brown, red, and yellow as well as white. This is also a day to celebrate the diversity that God, the Creator has gifted us with.
A Parent´s Promise A gynecologist and her husband make many secret promises to God about marriage and bearing children. They don´t think He hears them. But one day they discover that God has been listening all along.
