Inspirational Words from Mother Angelica



Has the world got you down?  Forget about that for a while and reflect on the life of Mother Angelica.  She was the most unlikely of candidates in the world’s eyes to become the most successful woman in the history of broadcasting.
But the foolish things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the wise; and the weak things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the strong,” (1 Corinthians 1:27).

The Christian Response to Harvey Weinstein



Harvey Weinstein is getting his due.  The fat cat movie mogul immersed in money, power, and degradation of his self and others is facing the ugly consequences of his ugly life.   A just ending to the story of a villain.  Rejoice!  But most rejoice for the wrong reasons–comeuppance.

Thank God for Christopher Columbus!

Here is a guest post from my husband Mark Armstrong in honor of Christopher Columbus Day.

I just want to shout out to Christopher Columbus today, on this day commemorating his discovery 525 years ago. Thanks for bringing the truth to a culture that thought slicing hearts out of bodies atop a pyramid was the way to God's heart.   In light of the recent solar eclipse, be glad you did not live in Mexico in the Americas BC—Before Columbus—during an eclipse.

100 Year Fatima Event October 13

Hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, missiles…oh my!  What is God doing? Actually, a better question is what are we doing?  And more specifically, what are you doing on October 13, the anniversary of the last apparition of Fatima where an estimated 70,000 people watched the sun leave its orbit and spin?

Miraculous Rose Petals from St. Therese



While Rhoda Wise of Canton, OH was alive, that humble, God-loving woman was surrounded by miracles.  There were so many signs and miracles that people flocked from all over to meet Rhoda and ask for her prayers.

The Power of Gratitude to Transform Suffering



I don't love my suffering. Saints embraced theirs. They even asked for it. It won them halos, while here I am, avoiding pain whenever possible but still offering it all up, because, well, it is heavenly collateral after all.
But I think I found an avenue suggested by saints and a priest that still leads to sainthood minus the direct love affair with suffering.

Humor Over KLM's Seatbelt Irony



            “In an age of spiritual turbulence it's important to remember that seat belts, like human beings, are created for a purpose.” That is my favorite quote of the week from Matt Archbold's blog with the National Catholic Register,
He took on the irony of the pro-gay pride ad from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines that inadvertently made the point that only complimentary parts can work together for your well-being.

Eradicating Love in Iceland





Iceland is a cold place. And I’m not talking about the climate. It is government policy to encourage the eradication of the happiest, most loving people on earth from their population.

Why Would a Nun Preside Over Catholic Wedding?


With liberals relentlessly and delusionally pushing for women priests, hearing that a nun officiated at a Catholic wedding set off alarms in my head. That can’t be right, I thought.

Witchcraft is Not Pretty


Witchcraft is trending in plague-like fashion, spreading a deadly contaminant to the soul. At least with small pox or the Ebola virus, people have the sense to cordon it off and seek annihilation.
              “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in hell,” (Matt 10:28). 
              “Be not afraid," is good advice when you give God control. Otherwise be afraid.
