I have been contemplating the virtue of Hope, and how this image of the moon is a good representation of how I perceive Hope working in me. In the darkness of our trials we exist, a darkness which at times threatens to obscure us completely. Hope is the light of God's goodness reflecting off our receptive souls, a light that seems to be of our own power, but is really the response of the receiver to the sender. When I feel hopeful, it is not a "going within" myself feeling, but a "projecting outward" sensation; it is a turning to the light, away from dark. #hope #catholiclife #depression #joy #domesticchurch #suffering #holy #holysuffering #largefamily #catholic #faith

Today is the Feast Day of St Anthony.

Whatever you wanna be right about is what you speak. ✨ You can say, “I don’t have the time” or you can choose to replace it with “I make time for what I want the most.” You can say, “I am crazy busy” or replace it with “I am grateful I get to do what I love and serve people in this way.” You can say, “I don’t have enough money,” or choose to replace it with, “I trust God will provide for what’s important to me because God is faithful.” 🙌🏼

Have you ever been coasting along in “the middle,” where things aren’t especially bad but they aren’t overwhelmingly fantastic, and you’re just kind of plugging along? . Yep, I’m there... that “okay” plateau, that place of spiritual neutrality where neither consolation nor desolation reigns. . I happen know from experience that this plateau can be a tempting spot to look down into the darkness of the valley, overanalyzing the stretches of suffering that we wish we were long gone yet still linger, that plateau where we look up and scowl at the mountaintops we dreamed of scaling by now, but as of yet, we haven’t been ready or able. . I’ve sat on a similar plateau so may times. This time, my physical suffering remains present, neither better nor worse; my schedule remains chaotically filled with good things & reluctant adulting & less sleep that I’d like. I’m fighting the urge to give in to the drudgery of suffering—& instead dig in with motivation. So I’ve been leaning in to this new liturgical season Ordinary Time which symbolizes ~rebirth,~ asking God what renewal He might be calling me to. . Et voilà—today as I sat during my lunch break & picked up my book (How to be Holy), Peter Kreeft quickly answered: . . “God makes us holy in two opposite ways, in the two parts of our lives. First, He makes us holy through our own will, our own free choice of faith and hope and love. (For divine grace does not turn off human free will; it turns it on.) And second, He also sanctifies us against our will, through suffering, because the other way of sanctifying us, through our own will’s choices, is not strong enough, because our faith and hope and love are not strong enough. So He sanctifies us also through what He allows to happen to us against our will, in other words, suffering.” . . Boom. There is is. Our will is not strong enough for us to sanctify ourselves. But His is. Growth in good things, growth in suffering. Yet another reminder that we can indeed trust His path and methods, in the glory of mountaintops, in the valleys of suffering, & all the little plateaus in between.

One year...one year ago your momma told me to swing by the hospital when I got off work. There in that room was this bundle who stole my heart right away. Your Uncle Brendan and I love you so much. God has blessed the world with such a kind and gentle little saint in you. We are beyond humble and honoured to be your godparents and show you how deep his love for you is.

I’m beyond thrilled for Dr. Matthew Rossano to be in the studio tomorrow, psychology professor and author of Supernatural Selection: How Religion Evolved and Mortal Rituals: What the Miracle of the Andes Survivors Tells Us about Human Evolution. I saw Artur Rosman recommend Supernatural Selection a few months back, and I’m fascinated by Dr. Rossano’s theory of religion as relationship, especially as someone who is approaching the same topic from the realm of parish evangelization. I’m so excited for our conversation. If you happen to have questions for Dr Rossano, leave them in the comments below or leave us a voicemail at 817-527-1423. This episode will come out in season 2 of The Show!

This was hanging in my room at the retreat. Does it not look like Zac Efron?!?! My teens don’t see it, but to me, they basically look like twins. 😂😂😂 Maybe I’ve seen “The Greatest Showman” too much.

It's easy to forget why we have freely chosen to follow in the footsteps of Christ, especially in the midst of serious challenges. We live as we do because it is morally right, pleasing to the Lord and strengthens our peace with God and others. Although this is true, we can lose sight of the end goal of our labors in the Spirit and the fundamental reason for our hope. 🕆 It is a healthy spiritual practice to remind ourselves that the decisions we make in favor of being faithful to God are not only good and holy; they ultimately lead us to eternal happiness. Life on earth is the journey and the fullness of life in Heaven is our holy destination. May God empower you with guidance and grace along the path to Heaven! 🕇 . . . #godlovesyou #wisdom #christianliving #inspire #inspirational #trustgod #inspirationalquotes #motivational #godfirst #faith #jesus #jesussaves #catholicchurch #catholiclife #christian #catholic #catholicquotes #catholicism #god #faithquotes #christianquotes #godsplan #selfcare #wordsofwisdom #inspire #inspiration #goals #goalsetting #2019 #2019goals

Hats off and 🥂 to all the families going through fertility issues. It’s mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausting, painful, and overwhelming. Went into my appointment today feeling like that and left a little more hopeful. A lot of times in Catholic circles I hear, and we are often asked, “You just have one?!” or “When will you have another one?” Or “When are you going to give Peter a sibling?” There’s no perfect family size, small families are beautiful, too, and we can do our part but ultimately and always God is 100% in control! All we can do is give thanks and rejoice for the gifts that He gives and takes! 💙🙏🏼 #rejoicealways

5 months here. 5 days until I leave! 🇬🇧⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Some of you might remember me using the word “strange” to describe how I felt when leaving New Zealand. That feeling is back again lol. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Not much has changed in terms of not having much figured out. Except this time around, I haven’t wanted to figure it all out. There hasn’t been any anticipation or anxiety. I started planning my move to London 7 months before leaving. You know how much planning I’ve done for Brisbane? Literally next to none. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My personality has changed a lot being over here. My need to plan has dialled back drastically. I find myself doing the necessary, but I don’t obsess over the details anymore. I just know they’ll work out and God’s got it covered. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This next chapter intrigues me, and with wholehearted, unknown, blindfolded peace I’m stepping in. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But first, Rome! ⁣ ⁣ #herwindwords #yourstorymatters #knownandloved

I've been thinking a lot about the flight to Egypt. When Mary prepared to go to Bethlehem I'm fairly certain she thought she'd be returning to Nazareth sooner rather than later, but that wasn't how it happened. Instead, she and her husband and child fled not long after the birth of Jesus to an ever further land. She left her family and wasn't even able to send out a quick text, "Hey fam, had the baby, He's awesome, gotta run to Egypt, be back when Herod dies." 🕊️ Despite being far from their families, and unprepared for such a long trip so far away, the Holy Family survived. They may not have been fully prepared for what the Lord called them to, but no doubt they were provided for. Where the Lord guides, He provides. ❤️ Isn't this sculpture lovely? It is at one of my favorite places on Earth, a gorgeous and peaceful Trappist monastery in South Carolina. It's my "happy place" that I mentally escape to in this chaos of life. Needless to say I've been "spending" a lot of time there recently, if only in my mind. 🙏 #mamamary #marianthoughts #catholiclife #catholic #catholicwife #reflection #flighttoegypt #ourlady #letgoandletgod #holyfamily #jmj #jesusmaryjoseph #jesus #mary #joseph #worthyofagape #woodcarving #southcarolina #monks #trappist #monastery

+At your service+

This current season of life has me heavily reflecting on the life of St Maximillian Kolbe. This morning, Jesus hit me with a reality in these reflections. . St Maximillian Kolbe lived his life so often in pursuit of just one person. He offered his first Mass as a priest with several intentions, one of which was one specific person. He deemed his missionary work in Japan as worthwhile because, in his time there, he converted one soul to Christ, even if it was just one soul. & when he was in Auschwitz, he chose to suffer death in the place of a man who had a wife and children who had been chosen to starve to death. . The common pattern in his life is that he lived in the pursuit of individual people & their dignity+sanctity. Yet, learning more about his life, it becomes clear that there was one person he did not live his life in pursuit of: himself. He lived selflessly. He strived to live in the way Christ lived. Are we, too? . So often, our “one person” is ourselves. We’re so often too afraid of the consequences upon our own lives of living in pursuit of the dignity+sanctity of others, even if it is just one person. We naturally put our own lives first and live in pursuit of our own dignity+sanctity. And yet, our own sanctity is so dependent on moving outside of ourselves and living our lives for other individuals. This is how Christ lived His life. And this is how we live our lives for Christ. . Christ lived for us, not Himself. Who are you living for?

Have you ever uttered the words, "I'll never be a saint, I'm not holy enough"?! I have. I've often thought that despite my best efforts, I could never be a saint because I'm too opinionated, too rebellious by nature. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But next time you think that, think of St Augustine! What really inspires me about him is how wrong he got it before he got it right. I love saints who went way off track before they found holiness, it shows me how real they are, how human, and it gives me hope for myself! If the St Augustines of the world can become saints, what's stopping the rest of us?! Seriously, no one has an excuse not to become a saint.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lord help me to remember that I am never too far gone to be welcomed into your loving embrace!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #staugustine #catholicsaints #saints #holiness #catholicquotes #saintsquotes #christianquotes #faithquotes #catolica #catholicworld #instacatholic #catholicsofinstagram #catholiclife #catholicliving #christianlife #catholicblogger #saints #christian #jesus #christianity #christ #christianblog #catholicblog #instafaith #instagram #romancatholicchurch #catholicchurch #catholics #catholicandproud #wednesday

We all desperately want to be loved, often going to extremes to shape ourselves in a way we deem worthy of it. We’ll dress a certain way, we’ll make jokes and references to get attention. But deep down, the ways in which we change ourselves are not who we truly are. I liked this quote because it shows that becoming a virtuous, wholesome person is attractive. Don’t ‘indulge in wild suspicions’ that because you are something different than what the world calls beauty, you are worthless. Some of the most beautiful people I know are not ‘slim-thic’, have perfect, clear skin, straight teeth, and impeccable hair. Their beauty flames forth from the beauty of their soul. We all need to constantly remind ourselves of that :)))

I’m still trying to finish my book Beautiful Hope. I love this chapter from @blindmanmusic It’s truly amazing how our faith journey has changed the last couple of years as we focus on paying off debt.

Today we celebrate the Feast Day of Our Lady Refuge of Sinners ✝ Pray for us O Holy Mother of God, that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ. No title has drawn so many to the feet of Mary than that of Refuge of Sinners. Dating back to the time of St. Germanus of Constantinople in the 8th century, this title is associated with the image of Mary as the New Eve. Where Eve was responsible for the suffering of humans since their fall from Heaven, the Virgin Mary is viewed as a source of healing. She is the new Eve who cannot eliminate the damage created by Eve, but who can limit it. Her fullness of grace, her position among the disciples of Christ, and her title as Mother of God are seen as assurances that the Virgin Mary is a powerful intercessor. God’s infinite mercy has not only prepared for us a potent remedy against sin in the merits of Christ, but it has also given us poor sinners a secure refuge in the assistance of Our Lady Refuge of Sinners. In the Old Law there were cities of refuge to which the guilty could flee for safety; in the New Law, Mary’s mantle is for us that citadel of refuge for sinful souls. How can the Divine Wrath strike us if we are covered by the mantle of Mary, the chosen daughter and the honored Mother of God? Our Lady Refuge of Sinners is thus not merely a pledge of our safety, but by her unrivaled sanctity, she is as earnest of pardon for all sinners who have recourse to her intercession. She not only disarms the just anger of God roused by our sins, but also obtains for her true clients sincere and heartfelt conversion. All we need do is turn toward her with faith, to obtain Divine Clemency and the means to rise from the mire of sin. St. Paul writes that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Unfortunately, as Pope John Paul II reminded the faithful ... Man has lost the sense of sin. Go to Our Lady under her title of Refuge of Sinners and ask her to help you see those defects of your soul that most impede your spiritual progress. Then make an act of contrition and go to confession as soon as possible. She will remain your shelter and your refuge.

Yesterday I posted that it was our two year anniversary of getting engaged and today happens to be our five year anniversary since he officially asked me to be his girl. The last five years have been the best of my life and also the hardest of my life but there is no one I would rather have gone through it all with. For those of you who don’t know I actually met peter through going to his brothers confirmation with @ratchfordstudios (who also took this awesome photo of us); where I met Peters mother who told me about his handsome God fearing catholic son who would be soon moving home from out west. I pretty quickly looked him up on Facebook and started talking to him. Upon talking to him I knew he was the man I wanted to marry one day and here we are- five years later I am his wife. I love waking up to him, laughing with him, serving the Lord with him and doing life with him.

Who here has a Monica closet? You know - the one where we shove everything so it LOOKS like we aren't a mess? No one? Good. Me neither. Just maybe don't open the closet doors or look under the beds when you're here. • Honestly though, I've been wondering lately when "we" decided that a perfectly clean house, a perfectly clean and orderly existence, is the sign of a life well lived. The mess is often where the magic happens! • When I'm in the midst of a creative burst of energy, I guarantee it does NOT look orderly. There is a mysterious order to it all though. And while I'd rather not have a home worthy of a visit from County Health, I do want to remember that the mess comes from living our lives. • Those not perfectly painted or framed pictures that hang on the wall with a bit of washi tape - that is celebrating our gifts being shared and our creative spirit poured out for all to see. Those toys that never quite all get put away? They are evidence of joy and laughter and yes, some bickering too - a life being lived and memories being made. • Life is messy. No amount of the KonMari method will fix that. There will be things that do not bring us joy. How we work through them and in them is where we allow grace to enter into our lives. It's in the mess that God does His work. • Now, please, do not for one second think that if you crave and need order in your life that somehow I am saying there is no magic there. You are a mysterious, beautiful, magical creature all your own! There is a difference, though, in cultivating peace through order and in measuring a life well lived by the elimination of all our messes. There is no need to lose our peace because we have stumbled upon or created what looks like a mess. There is no need to lose our peace attempting to keep up appearances. Messy? You’re still good and beautiful - chin up. Neat & tidy? You are still good and beautiful - please come over and help! • Strive for peace. Breathe. Live. And if you find a mess, look for the magic.

One of the hardest things about making prayer a daily habit is motivation. Whether it’s early in the morning, during lunch break, or before bed - we can come up with a dozen reasons or excuses or other things we need to do. And, the motivation simply isn’t there to pray.⠀ .⠀ Lately, I’ve tried to think of the act of praying like a signup sheet for Adoration. You never want an empty time slot. You never want Christ to be alone in the chapel.⠀ .⠀ Maybe it’s early in the morning, maybe it’s late at night, but ask when is our time? When is it our duty to get up and spend time with Christ, petitioning for our loved ones?⠀ .⠀ If your family is still sleeping, be the one who is up early praying on their behalf. If it’s during your lunch, remember that your wife is home with the kids and the house is probably not a silent oasis for prayer.⠀ .⠀ Find those moments. Spend time with Christ. Remember those who aren’t or can’t pray for themselves.

🙏🏾Let's pray with Saint Anne👇(mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus): ✝️[FR] Ô glorieuse Sainte Anne pleine de bonté pour tous ceux qui vous invoquent, pleine de compassion pour tous ceux qui souffrent, me trouvant accablé d’inquiétudes et de peines, je me jette à vos pieds, vous suppliant humblement de prendre sous votre conduite l’affaire qui m'occupe. Je vous la recommande instamment et vous prie de la présenter à votre fille et notre mère, la Très Sainte Vierge, à la Majesté divine de Jésus-Christ, pour m’obtenir une issue favorable. Ne cessez pas d’intercéder, je vous en prie, avant que ma demande ne me soit accordée par la divine miséricorde. Obtenez-moi par dessus tout, glorieuse Sainte, de voir un jour mon Dieu face à face pour le louer, le bénie et l’aimer avec vous, avec Marie et avec tous les élus. . ✝️[EN] O glorious Saint Anne full of goodness for all those who call on you, full of compassion for all those who suffer, finding me overwhelmed with anxiety and pain, I throw myself at your feet, humbly begging you to take under your guidance the issues that occupy me. I urge you to present it to your daughter and our mother, the Blessed Virgin, to the Divine Majesty of Jesus Christ, to obtain a favorable outcome. Do not stop interceding, I pray you, as long as my request is granted to me by divine mercy. Above all, get me, glorious Saint, to see my God face to face one day to praise, bless and love him with you, with Mary and with all the chosen. . ✝️[ES] Santa y gloriosa Santa Ana llena de bondad para todos los que te invocan, llena de compasión por todos los que sufren, encontrándome abrumada por la ansiedad y el dolor, me arrojo a tus pies, rogándote humildemente que tomes bajo tu guía los problemas que me ocupan. Les insto a que lo presenten a su hija y a nuestra madre, la Santísima Virgen, a la Divina Majestad de Jesucristo, para obtener un resultado favorable. No dejes de interceder, te lo ruego, siempre y cuando mi petición me sea concedida por la misericordia divina. Por encima de todo, consígame, gloriosa santa, que vea a mi Dios cara a cara un día para alabarle, bendecirlo y amarlo con usted, con María y con todos los elegidos.

Receive Communion often, very often...there you have the sole remedy, if you want to be cured.

If we have a box in which we keep our money, we know that one thing we must always give attention to is the key; we never think that the key is the money, but we know that without the key we cannot get our money. Our Blessed Mother is like the key. Without Her we can never get to Our Lord, because He came through Her. She is not to be compared to Our Lord, for She is a creature and He is the Creator. But if we lose Her, we cannot get Him. That is why we pay so much attention to Her; Without Her we could never understand how that bridge was built between heaven and earth. // Venerable Fulton J. Sheen 💙

33 DAYS TO MORNING GLORY (Michael Gaitley, MIC) Why can’t satan stand Mary? Why does he fear Her? “Satan, being proud, suffers infinitely more from being beaten and punished by a little and humble handmaid of God, and her humility humbles him more than the divine power.” Prayer: Lord, help is to renounce satan and recommit ourselves to Christ through Mary. #livingforhispurpose #catholicfamily #catholicfaith #catholic #catholiclifecoach #catholicmotivation #catholiclife #worship #mothermary

I keep finding myself in the Psalms, looking for great praises to our Lord. I get caught up in only turning to God when I find myself in a state of stress or anxiety. I am working on praising Jesus when things aren't so bad in life, either. When we are blessed with good things and don't give thanks to God for it, we are taking away that glory it holds. Don't act boastful or prideful when God was the one who made it happen. If you find something positive that happens along your path, today, remember to thank God for that gift (no matter how big or small it is). Be humble and thank Him for unconditional love when we don't deserve it at times. We were given a life to live, and to enjoy it. Why not be grateful, too? 🙏❤️✝️ . . . #notoriouslyme #blessedisshe #bissisterhood #bloggerstyle #catholic #catholicism #catholicblogger #catholicconnect #catholicfaith #catholiclife #lifestyleblogger #evangelize #faith #givethanks #instadaily #instablog #catholicwomen #faithbasedliving #unapologetic #praiseandworship #thankfulness

My oversized, black sweater is my favorite article of clothing. It’s quite ordinary in appearance, yet it brings me so much comfort and joy that I can barely part with it when I’m home, even standing guard as it makes its way through the laundry cycle. There have been idle threats by loved ones that the sweater just might disappear, but that only makes me wear it more. “Why such an attachment to an ordinary black sweater?” you might ask. Guess you could say we have been through a lot together: long walks, short naps, great conversations, tough conversations, good books, TV shows and movies, family dinners, late night worry, tears, hugs, prayers, laughter, lots of family celebrations. To be honest, I think I’m sentimentally attached to the sweater because it is covered in memories of some important everyday moments in my life, as a wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend... . . .
