Many thanks to Ignatius Insight Scoop for providing the link to this wonderful article from Touchstone Magazine entitled, “Children of the Reformation: A Short and Surprising History of Protestantism and Contraception.” Most people I have the opportunity to discuss these sorts of issues with have absolutely no idea that the ENTIRE Christian Church — Catholic … [Read more…]
I wish I had their creativity. I really do. Today was an “everybody go outside so Mommy can clean” sort of day.

…a fantastic article on Blessed Mother Teresa, and how she lived a life of joy in spite of feeling abandonned by God for 50 years. I know I’ve said this before, but I will say again how THANKFUL I am… not that she went through such a dark night… but that she is left as … [Read more…]
