Because Homeschooling Works: So Says A Student

Homeschooling moms often write blogs, stories, and articles about what they do, and I love reading those articles. However, I have a unique perspective on homeschooling. You see, I’m a practical outcome of all the tips and strategies and pieces of advice that are floating about online. I want to testify to the Catholic world […]

To Complete the Suffering of Christ

“Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, of which I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the word of God […]

Divorce: The Child Never Forgets

All of us experience suffering and pain in our lives. Life is full of those unexpected curveballs for which we are completely unprepared. Death and divorce are examples. Although not the same, they are both life-altering and (for a child) equally painful. There have been a multitude of studies on divorce. Most of them focus […]

One Marriage, the State and God

There have been perhaps a gazillion or two marriages since God ordained the Sacrament, as well as time and space and everything else He created. However, I could be wrong about the time aspect. According to Penny of The Big Bang Theory when asked if she knew who Stephen Hawking was she responded, “The wheelchair dude who invented time”. But, this […]

The Treasure of Silence

The Treasure of Silence

One perfect Word, and a world full of noise; one perfect proof of love, yet millions of lonely-hearted souls; one perfect God, and a bewildering number of imposters adored —this is the world in which we live, sorely in need of silence, love, and truth. The chatter never ceases, in spite of the eternally perfect […]

The Fifth Commandment: Standing Firm on Capital Punishment

From “Zola Levitt Ministries” “A sign of hope is the increasing recognition that the dignity of human life must never be taken away, even in the case of someone who has done great evil. Modern society has the means of protecting itself, without definitively denying criminals the chance to reform. I renew the appeal I […]

Facing Lent While Recovering From Anorexia

The fact that National Eating Disorders Awareness Week landed on the first week of Lent is rather ironic. During a Church season when people are giving up sweets or even meals, millions of people around the world are struggling with either overeating or restricting food.

Hard Sayings: God’s Word Never Changes

This article’s title comes to us from John 6:60, and is in regards to Jesus telling his disciples that they must eat His flesh and drink His blood to have eternal life. Many followers left him over the doctrine of the Eucharist, apparently not understanding His words of spirit and life in John 6:63 (spirit […]

Lent: Experiencing the Reality of Purgatory

The Eastern Orthodox Church designates Lent as a time of prayer for those who have gone before us. I think this observance is an appropriate gesture, especially since I am still dealing with the repercussions of my Ukrainian Orthodox grandmother’s plea for prayer. My paternal, Ukrainian grandmother, who had been in Canada for barely 15 years, […]

7 Things Not to Do For Lent

Lent is a time of spiritual self-discovery, renewal, and an invitation to find God’s will for us. Through sacrifice, prayer, and alms-giving we are looking to join Jesus in the desert – finding a purer form of ourselves. There are as many opportunities for Lenten self-improvement as there are individual souls. As we enter the […]
