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.
Walking the Camino for my Milestone Birthday This month I celebrated my 50th birthday and I realized that the greatest gift I received is actually-LIFE itself. Not only my life but the lives of those around me that I am blessed to fill my days with. In this milestone...
Dear, wear this bracelet as a reminder that your life means something; it means something to God, and it also means something to the world.
I am grateful for the joy that they bring to my life. As a grandparent, I like to be a little bit of a parent, a little bit of a teacher and a little bit friend to each of them in a unique way.
We had a very exciting start of the week at My Saint My Hero. Not only did we all relish the time off to be with our loved ones on Labor Day, but we also got to welcome a dynamic new team member to the My Saint My Hero family first thing Tuesday morning.
Today, on the feast day of St. Teresa of Calcutta, fondly known to us as Mother Teresa, we stop to remember the humble yet powerful way she loved Jesus: through serving and loving the poorest of the poor… Be the one who offers hope; be the one who gives a hug or shares a smile; be the one who brings light into the room; be the one who loves.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength…Impart these words upon your children, recite them morning and night and bind them around your wrist” as a constant reminder of God’s greatest commandment. -Deuteronomy 6:5-8
Thank you God, for the second chance. Thank you for the lesson learnt and thank you for your GREAT LOVE. Thank you for allowing me to feel the difference and for teaching me I am not meant to do it alone not now, not ever.
