Lenten Journey with the Saints: Day 3

March 8
“Apart from the cross, there is no other ladder by which we
may get to heaven.”
-St. Rose of Lima
Today’s Reflection
Accepting the crosses in our lives isn’t easy, but when done so for love of Our Lord, they become remarkably easier to carry. What crosses are you trying to carry alone? Give them to Jesus and let Him lighten the load!

Lenten Journey with the Saints: Day 2

March 7
“There are ways of being crucified that do not involve rough wood or heavy nails, but a love beyond our capacity to love, which means a love that has been given to us by God…”
-Servant of God Catherine Doherty
Today’s Reflection
Only with God’s grace can we truly understand that real love knows how to suffer for the beloved, and it does so joyfully. Where might you suffer more cheerfully for others?


Lenten Journey with the Saints: Day 1

March 6

“Ash Wednesday is considered the ‘door’ to Lent.”
-Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI


Today’s Reflection

Today is the beginning of a 40-day campaign dedicated to ridding ourselves of vice and filling ourselves with virtue. Bring your plans for this Lenten season to the feet of the Crucified and ask for His blessing as you begin this sacred journey.


Prayer is a wine

February 24
“Prayer is a wine which makes glad the heart of man . . .”
-St. Bernard
Today’s Reflection: 
Prayer was not meant to be a chore or just something else to do. It’s supposed to be a tender and loving encounter with the One whom we know loves us like no other. What can you do to make your prayer more intimate and authentic?

Prayer is the language of God

February 23
“To pray is the same thing as to speak.”
-St. Isidore of Seville (7th Century)
Today’s Reflection:
Prayer is the language of God. It’s the way we get to know Him, to trust Him, to love Him. When you speak to Him in prayer, do you take time to share your real feelings with Him, or do you just tell Him what you think He wants to hear?

Share a moment with God today

February 22

“He prays best who does not know that he is praying.”

-St Anthony (4th Century)


Today’s Reflection:

God wants to be more to us than just Someone we visit every Sunday morning. He wants to share our lives, our hopes, our dreams. Every time our thoughts turn to Him during the day, it’s a prayer, whether we realize it or not. Share a moment with God today!

The devil is very much afraid of resolute souls

February 21

“The devil is very much afraid of resolute souls, knowing by experience that they inflict great injury upon him.”

-St. Teresa of Avila

A civilization of love

February 20

“Women will increasingly play a part in the solution of the serious problems of the future: leisure time, the quality of life, migration, social services, euthanasia, drugs, health care, the ecology, etc. In all these areas a greater presence of women in society will prove most valuable, for it will help to manifest the contradictions present when society is organized solely according to the criteria of efficiency and productivity, and it will force systems to be redesigned in a way which favours the pro-cesses of humanization which mark the ‘civilization of love.'”

-St.John Paul II, Letter to Women

Today’s Reflection:

In Letter to Women, we are invited to be part of the solution for the serious problems of the future. Take time today to ponder your part in building a civilization of love. What is that special gift that you bring to the world?

Thank you, women who work!

February 19

“Thank you, women who work! You are present and active in every area of life-social, economic, cultural, artistic and political. In this way you make an indispensable contribution to the growth of a culture which unites reason and feeling, to a model of life ever open to the sense of ‘mystery’, to the establishment of economic and political structures ever more worthy of humanity.”

-St.John Paul II, Letter to Women

Today’s Reflection:

Contrary to popular belief, the Catholic Church appreciates women who work. In this quote from “Letter to Women,” St. John Paul II highlights the importance of bringing the “feminine genius” into every aspect of life. How can you bring your feminine genius into the spheres of influence in which God has placed you?

The nation needs what we are

February 18

“The nation..doesn’t simply need what we have. It needs what we are.”

-St. Edith Stein


Today’s Reflection:

There are many ways in which the “feminine genius” is under attack in our day and time. From radical feminism, to gender confusion, to the aggressive attack on human life in the womb. How does St. Edith Stein’s quote above inspire you to bring your feminine genius and your unique gifts to our nation, and to the world?
