Welcome Message

Welcome to my blog about Catholic life and family values.
This blog will center around the beauty of Catholicism and how to raise families, evangelize our faith, and fight the ongoing spritual battles that challenge us daily.

You are invited to share your wisdom on these pages with all the readers. Together we will address important life and faith issues and how to enhance our Catholic identity.

Key areas that you will find me addressing regularly will be about important Catholic doctrine and beliefs and how they help us raise strong Catholic Christian families. My hope is that you will learn, enjoy, and be challenged by my posts. You may be informed, amused, or even annoyed, but I hope it will in some way improve your Catholic faith.

Assume You Know About the Assumption?

This will be a very brief blog to remind all my Catholic brothers and sisters that today is the Feast of the Assumption and a Holy Day of Obligation. Or, as my pastor so eloquently puts it, a Holy Day of "Opportunity". This is a day to honor Our Blessed Mother and ask for her intercession. The photo included in this post was taken at The Grotto in Portland, OR. If you've never had the opportunity to make a pilgrimage there, I highly recommend it. You will be taken by it's beauty, serenity, and peacefulness. On this special day, let's close with...

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee; Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus; Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.


P.S. Pray for your children today!
