Christmas is a time to reflect on the true spirit of giving; a time to give what counts. Whether it be through one of our versatile and beautiful Blessing Bracelets (a great gift for everyone), or through another gift, I invite you to be the one to give a blessing this Christmas through your gift and presence.
Advent, which began on Sunday, is the beginning of the new year in the church. The word itself means coming. The Advent wreath is a beautiful opportunity for prayer as the candles are lit, especially together with the family. “The family that prays together…”
Providentially, early this month, on the feast of All Saint’s Day, we celebrated the grand opening of our second experience boutique store located in Rolling Hills Estates, California.
Today is #GivingTuesday. The natural response to feeling deep gratitude is to pay it forward. So after a long weekend of celebrating the gifts in our lives, it is beautiful to have a day where we stop to think of others.
The true gift of being a part of the My Saint My Hero family is the opportunity it allows us to bring gratitude, hope and most of all love into the world.
Large families are a huge blessing, especially at the holidays! As the youngest of eight children I have many memories of waiting for family to arrive on Thanksgiving…
Gratitude for me is a supernatural grace that raises my heart and soul above the pain of suffering and loss, to a place of love and peace.
When it comes to gifting, I find that one of the biggest challenges is finding something meaningful to both you and the receiver…Carol shares how she so beautifully found that perfect Baptism gift that continues to bless both the baby and his parents.
With the start of this beautifully crisp month of November most of us begin thinking about preparing and decorating for the holidays…Do something special this year.
The saints lived ordinary lives like you and me but with the passion to live this life on earth in constant union with Christ.
Ultimately, I believe this idea of bringing something of great value to people when they didn’t even know they needed it is exactly how God works in each one of us.
In January 2001, I had the opportunity of greeting Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square. I knelt before him for a few seconds, grasped his hand, received his blessing. I walked off the platform still in a daze. Had I really been blessed by the Pope?
In this month of October we join hands and hearts as we come together to continue our prayers for a cure for Breast Cancer.
My recent conviction of “be the one,” when I think about the one person, the one collection of human beings in the world that needs this love that doesn’t have bounds, conditions or strings attached is young women. I don’t see a more broken group of people.
This simple prayer, a kind of “I love you, Mom”, repeated 10 times in a decade, is at the heart of the Rosary. It is a beautiful prayer which praises her as the blessed Mother of God, and then asks for her intercession at the end of lives. It has often been reported that most people call out for their mothers in their last hours; if we faithfully pray this prayer throughout our lives, how can Mother Mary deny our request when that unknown hour comes for us?
Today we celebrate St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, a humble Polish nun through whom God imparted His message of Divine Mercy to the world. Mercy. It’s not a word to be used or taken lightly. So what does it really mean? What implication does that have for us?
Whenever my little ones, ages 3 and 2, spot a statue of a male saint, they almost always excitedly mistake his identity; “Loooooook, it’s Jesus!” I often laugh and correct them, but recently I thought, perhaps in their innocent mistake is hidden a glimmer of truth.
“Be joyful in love, be firm in hope and be constant in effort.” This is where my book flew open when I prayed for guidance one day… After reading it I signed up to compete in the longest Triathlon that I had ever done, the MALIBU International Triathlon on September 16, 2017.
When was the last time a certain song played over the radio and it was like you were instantaneously transported back to a specific time or place in your life? …The ringing of bells makes us stop and listen, if only for a moment, and it tells us that God is present very near, within ear shot.
Madi, our newest team member, shares her experience and reflections from the LA Prayer Breakfast that took place at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Downtown Los Angeles, this past Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
