Pro Orantibus Day

Something else that Our Lady’s Presentation makes me think of is perseverance. In the evocative iconography associated with this feast, the Child Mary is shown moving away from her parents as she climbs the steps of the Temple. Mary does not look back and, in a clear reference to the evangelical admonition, she moves forward [...]

Today begins the Novena to St. Francis of Assisi, the beloved little poor man who is the patron of our beloved Pontiff...Pope Francis!  We got so caught up in soaking in every moment of the Papal Visit - via television - that we didn't get this blog posted sooner!  Yes, all of us here are [...]
