The Beauty in Being a Woman

As a teenager I would constantly say that being a woman sucked. I was always complaining about having a period, that men could just roll out of bed and look fine whereas we have to get ready, we’re expected to be practically hairless on our body and be super thin in order to fit inContinue reading “The Beauty in Being a Woman”

Finding Joy in the Anticipation

Recently I was talking with a priest who shared his Advent message with me. He said how as Catholics we don’t just have the joy of celebrating Christmas Day, but instead, we have a whole season of joy leading up to Christmas. He explained how there’s so much joy in the anticipation of that specialContinue reading “Finding Joy in the Anticipation”

God Hears Your Prayers

Recently I had one of those days where I couldn’t help but think, ‘Gosh, God really hears our prayers.’ Back in 2016 I did my first bible study. I was in college and it was when I was starting to grow more in my faith. I found a bible study on the The Bible Timeline:Continue reading “God Hears Your Prayers”

A Reflection on St. Bernadette

“I shall spend every moment loving. One who loves does not notice her trials; or perhaps more accurately, she is able to love them. I shall do everything for Heaven, my true home. There I shall find my Mother in all the splendor of her glory. I shall delight with her in the joy ofContinue reading “A Reflection on St. Bernadette”

The Beauty in Being a Wife

In one of her many letters written to her husband, St. Gianna Molla wrote “You are the man I had wished for, but I often ask myself, ‘Will I be worthy of him?’ Yes, worthy of you, because I want so much to make you happy, but I fear not being able to do so.Continue reading “The Beauty in Being a Wife”

Honoring the Virgin Mary

May is the month of Mary. And as we approach the end of the month, I wanted to reflect on our Blessed Mother. As Jesus hung from the cross, he told John, the beloved disciple, “Behold, your mother!” In that moment, Mary became a mother to us all. As Catholics, we often get called MaryContinue reading “Honoring the Virgin Mary”

Listen to the Word of God, Not the World

How much easier would it be to listen to everything the world tells us? Life would be so much easier if we just went with the status quo, followed the societal norms, but that’s not what we’re called to do as children of God. We are called to a much more difficult way of life.Continue reading “Listen to the Word of God, Not the World”

Mass: The Place Where I Feel at Home

You never realize how much you love something until it’s gone. In 2020, when Churches were closed, I realized how much I love attending Mass. I had never noticed how much it’s a part of me until I couldn’t attend, until I was forced to watch Mass from my living room on my laptop. IContinue reading “Mass: The Place Where I Feel at Home”
