Entertaining Strangers

Recently, I found myself in front of the house, doing a project. This is a rarity, in that, for most of the past year, I've been renovating the inside of the house. I haven't really had time to do the exterior work. At least not yet. And it was especially rare, on this particular day, to be in the front yard, as I was supposed to be elsewhere. But plans get reconfigured, derailed at times for a reason. And this reason was....Mandi!

True Beauty

What is true beauty?

I had a very interesting experience at a retreat I went to one year.  I went to confession and confessed that I felt like I was worrying a lot about my appearance.  I was starting to get older and I was thinking about it too much and what others thought about the way I looked.  I know I am not the only one who only puts the best picture on my Instagram or Facebook pages, right?  Love those filters!  WELL, instead of the usual 1 Our Father and 3 Hail Mary’s that I had been accustomed to since entering the church as a former Protestant in 2001, I was told to not wear makeup for a month as my penance. 

MARTYRDOM, AN INSANITY?

The Wake-up Project presents in the EUK Mamie site, the latest clip on the persecuted Christians. This time our protagonist is Fr. Ragheed Ganni, a Catholic martyr of the Chaldean Catholic Church in Iraq.  He died at age 34, on June 3, 2007, killed by Islamic State fundamentalists. (Click here to see the video.)
