• What does true love look like? Below is a short 3 minute video that brought me to tears.I pray it moves people to FIGHT for their sacramental marriages as we all know satan is trying to tear marriages and families apart. A little more information from their grand daughter: My grandparents Laura and Howard have been married 73 years. In this video Howard is 92 and Laura is 93. Laura (Grandma) is at a hospice facility making peace with her final days. I was lucky enough to capture this precious, heart-melting...

  • (I've also recorded an audio if you'd like to listen, below) Recently, these prophetic words from Pope Emeritus Benedict resurfaced and I was blown away by how relevant they were.  He wrote: "The church will become small and will have to start afresh more or less from the beginning.

  • As  many of you know, Walt is an avocational archaeologist.  I'm writing the first blog post for him...but..he's taking over after this :) We live on very special "consecrated" land (which was offered to us the year my mom died in...no coincidence!)  In 1667, Father Jacques Bruyas arrived here (on our land) to act as the first missionary to the Oneida Indians.  Soon after his arrival, the Indians built him a chapel which he named St. Francis Xavier (yes, on our land).  This was the very first mission among the...

  • Thank you to Fr. William P. Saunders for the following information. How should you properly dispose of old blessed palm, broken statues, rosaries and other items that were blessed?

For example when a bishop dedicates, or classically speaking, consecrates, an altar, that altar must only be used for sacred purposes, particularly the...

  •   I use Face Book as an additional means of evangelizing and bringing folks back to Christ.  I recently featured this audio on how to get rid of deep hurts & resentment. We need to HEAL and move on.  It is not good to carry these hurts around. We must not cling to our pain...we need to release it.
