My godmother recently gave me a book called The True Saint Nicholas written by William J. Bennett
Inspired by the book, and using information from it, I dedicate this post to Saint Nicholas of Myra.
I was recently inspired to begin a new series on my blog!
Since I enjoy learning about the saints, and they’re an important part of the Catholic Faith, I decided to create a series for them.
The new series is called Saint Spotlight.
In this series I’ll highlight a saint for a specific purpose. It will most likely be a saint whose feast is celebrated in the current month.
I’ll describe the life of the saint and provide interesting information that I find.
I’ll choose saints from different time periods and walks of life, some well-known and some obscure.
Today I’ll present a saint I recently learned about: Frances Xavier Cabrini.
In my previous post I listed the five newest saints of the Catholic Church.
These holy men and women, and all the saints, are meant to serve as models for us. They point to our Creator and our ultimate home: heaven.
In honor of the recent canonizations, I’d like to share 10 quotes on heaven.
(And at the end of the post, I have a request for you!)
I’d like to share an article that my dad recently shared with me.
It’s about the 70th official Lourdes miracle recognized by the Catholic Church. The miracle was approved on February 11th — the World Day of the Sick and Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes — of 2018.
It’s the most recent official miracle to date and an encouraging true story!
“All will be right with time and a little patience.” ~ St. Mary MacKillop
I wrote a post about waiting last year. At that time, I was in a personal situation that required patience.
Well, I’m still in a period of waiting and being asked to practice patience at this very moment!
So, I’d like to share this post with you again. If you read the original post, I recommended re-reading it here.
Waiting is a reality each of us can relate to, and there is often a lesson waiting for us…
Today, May 31st the Church celebrates the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
At the Annunciation, the angel Gabriel visits Mary and says she’s been chosen to bear the Son of God. He also says that her relative Elizabeth, who was considered barren, is in the sixth month of her pregnancy.
Immediately after hearing this news, Mary travels to visit Elizabeth. This is known as the Visitation.
First, we’ll look at the Gospel account of the Visitation.
Then, I’ll share four lessons from this significant event.
