  • What people donโ€™t realize is how much religion costs. They think faith is a big electric blanket, when of course it is the cross.โ€

    • Hi everyone, I live in Ontario, Canada in a small town probably smack in the middle between Canada’s capital, Ottawa, and Ontario’s capital, Toronto (3 hour drive to either city. Although I used to be a city person and loved it, we live on a large acreage for the past 15 years. I probably would like it better if bears didn’t enjoy visiting us to eat our wild raspberries.

  • \”A woman is capable of more sacrifices than a man. Man is more apt to be a hero, through some great passionate outburst of heroism. But a woman\’s love makes a thousand small sacrifices, sprinkling them through the days and the months; their very repetition gives them the character of the commonplace. Not only her soul, but her body, has some share in the Calvary of Redemption; furthermore, she comes closer to death than man, whenever she brings forth a child.\” Fulton J. Sheen, Life is Worth Living

    • I really like Archbishop Filton Sheen, like Pope John Paul II, he really understands the suffering of women

    • My mom bore 8 children. 3 miscarriages and a still-born twin. I am the youngest of 8(2 of the miscarriages were after me). I guess God had a plan for me to take care of my mother(Froggie) in her later years. Since she had 11 pregnancies she could tolerate physical & emotional pain much more than most people. Through my observation. It was when she suffered with acute pancreatitis @73 yrs of age that our family learned the tolerance of pain and offering up suffering for the poor Souls in Pergatory. Many prayers and with the grace of God she lived for 1 week short of 18 yrs when the first pancreatitis attack came.
      She definitely offered up her suffering for those in Pergatory but as well for those souls who had no one else to pray for them.

      • Your mom sounds like a saint Chris. What was it like being the last of so many children. Having 8 children myself with the youngest when I was 44 and my husband 50, I sometimes feel bad for him that he missed out on all the excitement of life as our lives have slowed down quite a bit, he’s 11 and I’m in my fifties. When we decided to go for this last pregnancy our thoughts were… God was in charge, my husband’s mother died at 33 and he was only 12, so there really is no promise how long you get to have your parents so we went ahead. We feel very blessed, but all this propaganda about too many kids when you are older makes us insecure sometimes

        • Nancy, set your sights on what matters, ie the way of the cross, and the way of the world will not bother you. Propaganda is just that : Propaganda. People trying to dictate how you should be leading your life. To heck with that, I’d rather follow what my Father in Heaven says, and what my Mother Church teaches. She’s been teaching us extremely well for 2000 years, so live in the confidence of her authority, and tell everyone else to sweep in front of their doors before they look to sweep in front of yours.

      • Oh my goodness, Chris……what a woman…. she really is someone who’s example I could follow. You are extremely blessed to be the son of someone so unbelievably special.
        Wow……

  • The Holy Alphabet…

    A lthough things are not perfect,
    B ecause of trial or pain,
    Continue in thanksgiving
    D on\’t even think to blame.
    E ven when the times are hard,
    F ierce winds are bound to blow,
    G od is forever able
    H old on to what you know.
    Imagine life without His love,
    J oy would cease to be,
    K eep thanking Him for all the things
    L ove imparts thee to see.
    Move out of \’ Camp Complaining \’,
    No weapon that is known
    O n earth can yield the power
    P raise can do alone.
    Quit worrying about the future,
    R edeem the time at hand,
    S tart every day with prayer
    To \’thank\’ is God\’s command.
    U ntil we see Him coming,
    V ictorious in the sky,
    We\’ll run the race with gratitude,
    X alting God most high.
    Y es, there\’ll be good times and yes some will be bad, but…
    Z ion waits in glory…where none are ever sad!
