Husband Mike and I saw this painting (click for larger) hanging in a retreat center and we would love to buy a copy. But, after tons o' lots o' searching, I've found nothing. Zip. Nada. Zilch.NOTE: The white circle in the left is from glare; it's not part of the art. Also, this picture is not as wide as the actual piece; this is cropped a bit.While recently browsing through a Catholic bookstore,

Earlier tonight, Husband Mike and I watched a rerun of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, "11001001". When one of the guest characters, Commander Orfil Quinteros, strode onscreen, my first thought was, "OMG, it's Commander Father Corapi!"Judge for yourself:

Awhile ago, I was thinking about how hard it is for me -- how it's always been hard -- to get out of bed in the morning. No matter what, I Always Hate Getting Up and do everything I can to delay it. I grumble, I gripe, I continually hit the snooze button. I have absolutely no motivation to pry myself from the sheets.I was feeling frustrated and angry at myself over this perpetual lack of

Happily, there are Lots And Tons Of Many Great Josephite Books out there, but occasionally, I'll come across one in which the author whines something like, "Poor Joseph, there's really not much written about him! Oh, well!" To that I reply: You are full of crap!There are loads of excellent books written about Joseph, ranging from devotional to scholarly and all shades in-between, and whenever an

While chattin' with pals recently, I realized that it's been awhile since I've tossed out a Josephy post, which must be remedied forthwith! For this go-round, let's look at Joseph's unique and glorious fatherhood!"48. So what is the most exact title we should use to express Joseph's fatherhood?In reality, none of the terms suggested entirely expresses the totality of Joseph's relationship with

After years of searching, Husband Mike finally found a St. Michael the Archangel statue -- with devil-stompin' action! -- that he likes, which we happily brought home earlier this evening:So, how long d'ya think it'll take for somebody ...... to damage it, à la Mary?

A fellow Franciscan, Sr. Mary Kansier, MS, composed this wonderfully powerful -- and concise! -- prayer in relation to the proper use of technology. I'm happy to share it here, and hope it spreads 'round the Innertoobz! With proper citation for Sr. Mary (who retains all copyrights), of course!Prayer to St. Maximilan Kolbe on the Use of Technologyby Sr. Mary Kansier, MSHeavenly Father, Your loving

Ah, the Rosary. A fragrant offering of prayer, an oasis of contemplation, and a sacrifice of praises to God.Well, not always.Some time ago, while Husband Mike and I were praying the Rosary together 'afore bed, we had the following exchange. Background Note: I was suffering from a severe cold at the time that included coughing, a nonstop runny nose, and a Gigumbous Amount of postnasal drippage

Me: (walking into room where Husband Mike's on the computer) "OK, my saddlebags an' I are heading out for a run."Husband Mike: (eyeing said saddlebags) "Hey, are those like camel humps where they retain water for long periods of time?"No, I didn't hit him.* * *Hey, so it's been ages since I last posted, and as you may have picked up in the vignette above, I've finally gotten back into runnin' and

I so wish things could've worked out for Husband Mike and me to attend this year's March for Life. While we can't be there, we can and are praying for those wonderful folks out marching right now.You definitely won't see the MSM reporting on this, and if they do, what they may say will misrepresent and downplay the march's magnitude. Thankfully, pro-lifers are stepping in to get the word out, and

Me: (entering a room from which Husband Mike had just left) "Ewww! Hey! Why didn't you warn me about the cat puke in here?! I just stepped in it!"Husband Mike: "What? What cat puke?" (wanders back into room and examines the puke, which is more like spittle) "Oh, that's nothing. It's just a prelude to a hairball." (moves around the room, looking in corners) "Ah! Here's the hairball, over by this

Oh, how I love this feast day! It reminds us that Jesus came to us from within a family, as the ultimate good of Mary and Joseph's marriage. With them, He formed a union of divine and human hearts, and established an earthly trinity to help us better comprehend the mystery of the heavenly Trinity.And He gave us not just a means of contemplating the heavenly Trinity, but a living example for us

Years ago in a forum, I started a thread asking folks to share their core (things that you always pray for) prayer intentions. 'Twas fun and insightful, so I figured I'd do the same again here. (Hey, recycling's a good thing, right?)Mine are:Husband Mike, our cats, family, friends, and coworkers.All Franciscans -- First, Second, and Third Order (Secular and Religious).Priests and brothers of

I've seen my pal Maria do this from time to time, and I'm flat-out stealing her idea ...When going through my site's referrer logs, I'll occasionally find some really wacko keyword searches that somehow direct folks thisaway. So, for your reading enjoyment (and 'cause it's a lazy way to eke out a blog post), here are a few, with my comments added:"ancient hebrew label cousin" (Ummm ...)"

While campaigning for the U.S. presidency, Barack Obama made a promise. In 2007 before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Barack Obama told pro-abortion activists:"The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act."With a single stroke of the pen, the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would establish the right to abortion as a fundamental right (like the right to free speech) and

... and if you still insist on voting for Obama, know that you've played your part in making this even more -- not less -- common. Bravo for you!Oh, and btw? I was born at 28 week's gestation.
