  • How do Catholics treat families living with mental health issues?

    The families of those who have been diagnosed with a mental health problem often suffer in silence. The stigma attached to having a major depressive disorder, an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, addiction or any mental health diagnosis is huge. The surprising thing is that these families sit next to us every weekend at Mass.

  • Finding wisdom all around us
    The majority of TV news is fear-based commentary, promoting the notion that the world is on an inevitable path to ruin.
  • The beloved St. Francis of Assisi initially had an absolute disdain for lepers. He would go miles out of his way to avoid them. One day, Francis saw a leper approaching and started to turn away, but instead turned toward the leper, embraced and kissed him, and gave him some money.
  • A God who knew His way out of the grave
    Until recently, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Russian city of Moscow was the tomb of Vladimir Lenin, an early communist luminary and rabid enemy of religion, especially of Christianity.
