Will you join us in praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day this Lent?
It’s no secret that romance in the modern world is not what it used to be, nor is it the idealistic picture we see in movies and books. This reality has left some people thinking that there is no such thing as real romance, or that even if there is, it is not something worth pursuing.
While talking to my pastor a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I hadn’t met a religious sister until after college. He was surprised to learn this at first, but then, he realized it made a lot of sense—religious sisters just aren’t as present in parishes as they used to be, at least in our area of the country.
"The glory of God is man fully alive." -St. Irenaeus
God didn't create us to be slaves or sleepwalkers; he created us to be free and fully alive. This is a prayer for the grace to live and love as God intends.
To live a well-ordered life so that my love may be wild; Lord, grant me the grace.
