Mindfulness, a Wolf Disguised as a Lamb

It has become even more frequent to go into a school gym and see students in the lotus flower position, or lying on a tatami mat with their eyes closed and with silly smiles on their faces practicing mindfulness.

Among the Pots and Pans

 

Several months ago I started having issues with my dishwasher.  I live in a humid climate, and I suppose the humidity was the culprit.  I started to find little spots of mold inside the dishwasher.  I would clean the spots, run dishwasher cleaner, let it air out, but the spots would return.  The mold started to show up in many tiny and hard to reach spots. So I decided to start handwashing the dishes until I could find the time on a weekend to take apart the pieces and give it a complete steam cleaning barring my husband finding the right tools for the job. 

Summer Faith Building Ideas

Summer time is just around the corner!  The days are getting longer, children are coming to the end of their school year, and warmer days are on the way.  Many parishes also bring their catechism classes to a conclusion in the month of May, often with the celebrations of the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation.  That being said, the catechist led lessons and homework are soon coming to a close.  To add to that, the kick-back and relax attitudes that come with summer are on their way as well.  They don’t call them the “dog days of summer” for nothing! 

5 Simple Ways to Increase the Faith Life of Children

The title of this article sounds a bit like a Pinterest board; I must admit!  But the purpose of the title is quite the contrary.  In today’s media saturated world, laden with images of “perfection”, it is easy to for one to become downtrodden when comparing his or her reality with what is presented online.  Often times the picture perfect portrayals on blogs, websites, and social media discourage those trying to accomplish a particular goal or feat simply because what they produce never quite turns out as beautifully as what they saw online.  Unfortunately, even when it comes to faith-related topics, one can succumb to this perfection paralysis.

"Prayer can change the world"

Information, prayer and action are the three pillars of ACN’s mission. Prayer is at the very heart of our mission, as through prayer information becomes Evangelisation and action becomes a Work of God.

Visiting Jesus

As a working mom with a busy life, I encourage all the families to make time to take their children to Adoration and to see the wonders this will do for them and for the whole family. We need to have faith and hope that our children will continue this practice (in their future and the future of their children), and that they will carry it on to their children.
