  1. _MG_9850 Prayer for the Week May 18 – Joy and Sadness - Joy and sadness.  I really despise the way joy and sadness always seem to go together. As Christians our inheritance in the Lord is joy (not happiness mind you,) but joy.  It’s that ability to hold on to something beautiful and altogether good despite the situation.  Despite our sadness.  Despite our brokenness.  Despite our inability […]

Kristy Singing Prayer for the Week May 4th – He Remembers - I guess I was about twelve or thirteen years old at the time.  One Sunday after church a friend of mine (I actually don’t even remember her name) and I went up to one of the Sunday school rooms to pray.  For some reason we felt God had something more for us that day.  I […]

  7. Earth Day Living in Peace With Nature (Thoughts for Earth Day from Israel, age 12) - Besides Earth Day, when do you ever think about the earth?  And maybe that’s just another weird thing that people do. Maybe the world’s not important, its not like we need it to survive or anything.   Saint Francis didn’t think so. He knew the importance of what God gave us, so here’s a view […]
  8. Mercy Found Me Prayer For The Week of April 13 — His Mercy Found Me - Yesterday was Divine Mercy Sunday. Although I can’t live a day, a second, a fleeting moment without God’s mercy, there’s something so profound about setting aside a particular day to meditate on His mercy. In yesterday’s homily, my priest brought out the root of the word mercy. It comes from the Latin: misericordia. Literally this means, […]
