Do not be afraid

June 24
“Do not be afraid to present to him (Jesus) all the intentions of our suffering humanity, its fears, its miseries. May this Heart, full of love for men, give everyone hope and trust…I invite you to discover the riches that are
hidden in the Heart of Jesus.”
– Pope Francis
Today's Reflection
Pope Francis reminds us the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is full of love for us, will embrace us in our suffering, fear, and misery. How does this console you in the present moment in which you find yourself today?

Lack of love

February 11
"Today people are suffering from poverty, but also from lack of love."
-Pope Francis
Today's Reflection:

There has been great frenzy the last several days following the presentation of Amoris Laetitia (“The Joy of Love”), Pope Francis’ post-synodal exhortation on the family. The quick take is this: it’s a draw. That collective exhale heard around the world last Friday was the sound of a pause before the next round—maybe in the next pontificate. The orthodox and progressive camps are looking at a glass half-full but also half-empty. Meanwhile, canon lawyers have a collective headache.

For the Woman Who Wasn't There: To All the Moms who Watched Philly From Afar

When we welcomed Pope Francis into our country, I'm sure many of you moms, like me, dreamt of traveling to be with the crowds who were there to celebrate, listen, and pray with the pontiff. Of course, for most of us, it never got further than a fleeting, wishful thought.
