Spiritual works of mercy

During the Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis directs us to pay particular attention to the works of mercy — corporal acts that address the needs of the body, and spiritual ones that tap into the needs of the soul. Although the corporal acts are taken directly from the words of Jesus in Matthew 25, the […]


Corporal Works Of Mercy : Take advantage of daily opportunities to help

The call to help our fellow man through specific acts of mercy comes straight from the mouth of Jesus Christ. In Matthew 25:34-40, Jesus says those who are welcomed into heaven will be the ones who helped Him when He was hungry, sick or thirsty; who gave Him clothes, welcomed Him as a stranger and […]

Canon law makes the mission possible

When Pope Francis announced upcoming changes to rules regarding marriage annulments, it turned a spotlight onto canon law. And though it might seem terribly abstract, in reality, canon law affects answers to nitty-gritty questions of our daily life. For example, can grandma be cremated when she dies? Are you allowed to get married on the […]


Vestments add expression to the liturgical year

The beautiful, ornate vestments worn by priests are one of the most visual elements of the Mass. Different colors and decorations, often embroidered in rich, glimmering fabrics add to the mystery of the Eucharist, remind us of the season we are in, and enhance our experience of the celebration. Vestments signify the role the priest […]


Hail Mary: Our most gracious advocate

Mary is a vital part of Catholic life all year long, but she really comes to the forefront of worship, thought and prayer as the calendar turns to May. This is the month of special prayers, devotions and festivals dedicated to the Mother of God worldwide. In many churches, traditional “May processions” are held that […]
