The Valiant Woman Speaks

“She hath opened her mouth in wisdom: and the law of clemency is on her tongue.” Prov. 31:26 Only once does Proverbs 31:10-31 mention the valiant woman speaking. Throughout the passage she is always described acting, doing, or being, but not talking. Then, finally, one sentence is dedicated to her speech. It is brief and […]

For Corpus Christi

The Anima Christi is one of my favorite Eucharistic prayers. I find it essentially sums up everything you could possibly ask Jesus while you have Him in your heart after receiving Him in Holy Communion, and it is excellent inspiration for mental prayer. Since today is the External Solemnity of the Feast of Corpus Christi, […]

More on Proverbs 31: The Generous Woman

“She hath opened her hand to the needy, and stretched out her hands to the poor.” Prov. 31:20 Every verse in Proverbs 31:10-31 addresses a special quality of Godly womanhood. One verse, which we will focus on today (Prov. 31:20), is dedicated to generosity. Sacrifice is a key virtue in Catholicism, so it is only […]

Dignity of the Unborn Child

Life begins at conception. Science has been able to pinpoint the exact moment when human life commences, and the biological facts are uncontested (George 196). When an embryo is formed it is a new, distinct, and living human being. It is not a part of the mother, although the child relies completely on the mother […]

Beauty, Reverence, Stability – An Encounter With The Traditional Latin Mass

Sunlight pours through stained-glass windows. Incense rises from a smoking thurible. Chant echoes throughout the sacred space. Every Sunday I attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Traditional Latin Rite of the Catholic Church; every Sunday, I find myself immersed in the beautiful traditions of my Faith. When I attended the Traditional Latin […]

The Most Precious Blood of Our Lord – Eucharistic Miracle Argentina 1996

Updated on June 14, 2021 At seven o’clock in the evening on August 18, 1996, an Argentinian priest was offering Holy Mass at a Catholic church in Buenos Aires. As he finished distributing Holy Communion, a woman approached the altar and told him she had found a discarded Sacred Host at the back of the church. When he arrived […]

An Introduction to Proverbs 31

How many self-help guides are out there telling one how to “be you”? Girls, if you are looking for a guide to finding “who you really are” or rather who God calls you to be, try Proverbs 31:10-31! These twenty-one verses of the Old Testament are a collection of the attributes of the ideal woman […]

The Current Crisis: A Divine Mercy

“There would not be so great ease in sinning today, if there would not also be such great ease in absolving.” – St Lenard of Port Maurice We have just celebrated the single most important feasts of the entire year: the Easter Triduum and Easter Sunday. Throughout this time, we reflected on the passion of […]

Submitting to the Divine Interdict – Fiat!

“For no word shall be impossible with God.” When facing a crisis, we are often tempted to doubt God’s control over the situation. Events such as floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, and epidemics are beyond our own control, and because of this, we easily find ourselves worried about what the future will hold. The pandemic we are […]

Suspension of Public Mass: The Divine Interdict

All public Masses are suspended until further notice. This authoritative mandate from our bishop has come to many of us as a surprise. In our diocese, this is the second Sunday that the faithful have been deprived the privilege of attending Mass and receiving Christ in the Holy Eucharist. Frequent reception of the sacraments, to […]

President and Youth at March for Life Hopeful for America

On January 24th, people from all walks of life gathered in Washington D.C. for the 47th annual March for Life. This was my first time attending the event, and I found myself inspired by the enthusiasm, prayer, and peacefulness which seemed to surround both the marchers and the march itself. Many have called this year’s March […]
