The Jesus Kiss

    


    This story happened 21 years ago between Pbro José Rodrigo López Cepeda and a young altar server named Gabriel. The priest stated on his Facebook page: “It has been published on many platforms is no longer mine. It is of all who make it theirs because the great protagonist is  ‘Jesus ‘ in Gabriel and that kiss that many would like to perceive.” Here is what happened in his own words.

850th Anniversary of Saint Thomas Becket’s Martyrdom

  


Today is the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket on December 29, 1170. Thomas Becket was a statesman, a scholar, a chancellor, a priest, an archbishop, and a lion of religious liberty. Before the Magna Carta was drafted, before the right to free exercise of religion was enshrined as America’s first freedom in our glorious Constitution, Thomas gave his life so that, as he said, “the Church will attain liberty and peace.”

Powerful Reminder to Pray First


I had forgotten to pray prior to practice with my co-hosts for our upcoming TV talk show, “Ladies of Another View” on BEK News
It was something we had done a few times and everyone happily agreed that it was a good idea. Then, I let it slip away.

Need a lift? Join Me at This Free Mom's Event

 
    This past week knocked me down in a way I don’t usually succumb. It’s not just our country, it’s our Church too for a number of reasons.

I hunkered down and prayed more. I focused on the fact that spiritual things are most important and they are all that is going to matter in the end. I also realize that even if I personally feel helpless, my prayers make a difference.

Threat of Biden According to Archbishop Sheen


         The threat against religious
 liberty that Joe Biden brings to 
his run for the Whitehouse was 
addressed by the Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen in 1947 in his  book, Characters of 
the  Passion. 

          For all the accusations that Christian and Catholic teaching is dangerous to our free society, Sheen pointed out that the reality is quite the contrary.“It was Jesus Christ who suffered under Pontius Pilate; it was not Pontius Pilate who suffered under Jesus Christ.  The grave danger today is not religion in politics but politics in religion.”

Holy Art with Medals


  


     The first time that I attempted one of my medal mosaics, I bought the supplies, laid them out on my dining room table, and took a deep breath. I’m not an artist or master crafter so I had doubts about how my project would turn out.
