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.

Little Miracles

I was praying at my Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration this morning, but have to admit I wasn't on my "A" game. I had a lot of business matters on my mind, and although I'd just completed the rosary, it wasn't a quality one.

As I finished and picked up my Bible to read, a young man came in to the chapel. I'd never seen him before. He asked if he could join me for a few minutes as he was on his way to work. "Absolutely", I said. His name is Zack.

About a minute in, he asked, "Would you mid praying a decade of the rosary with me? I usually say it in the car but I still have two to go." At that moment, it dawned on me that this was a small opportunity to make up for a less than perfect attempt earlier. I agreed and we ended up doing the last two decades.

I had one other gift. For the last Hail Mary, Zack sang the prayer. He has a beautiful voice and I was filled with a joy of making those last two decades. He had to leave for work...and did so with a big smile.

The moral of my story...

God has a way of bringing people into your life just at the right time for the right reason. Zack was that person for me today. Be vigilant because He will do the same for you when you least expect it.

Vivat Jesus,
