I have been reading a book on St. Joan’s of Arc life, not as a martyr, but rather as a mystic, who died a martyr’s death. I find myself quite puzzled by Joan’s early life reading this book. In particular, the events at the small French fortress town of Vaucouleurs. She was led to thisContinue reading “Saint Joan Meditation: Courage”
Hello dear readers! I wanted to write something that I’ve been meditating on the past couple of days. I tried to focus on one particular virtue with Saint Joan, but to be honest, there are too many with this reflection. Whether that’s boldly proclaiming the Lord, suffering patiently, or even forgiveness, so I will leaveContinue reading “Saint Joan Meditation: Christmas”
Hello dear reader, I am doing something new—some meditations on some of the different virtues of Saint Joan and Saint Therese.That being said, this mediation will be on Saint Joan’s virtue of self-restraint cause, oh my, I think we could learn something, including myself, on this topic. The first virtue we will be taking aContinue reading “Saint Joan Meditation: Self-Restraint”
I want to tackle a very sensitive subject. In today’s society, we have been living in a dangerous world. We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded that facts come from our feelings. What do I mean? That is what we feel is the truth. If it makes me feel good, it mustContinue reading “Strengthening Our Will”
Note: I have a song to celebrate Saint Therese’s Feast day I remember asking Jesus and St. Therese. “Please illuminate something to me. So if you have something you wish to say, please point it out to me.” I asked this of her today, and ohhh, does St. Therese come through when you ask forContinue reading “A Real Encounter with St. Therese”
I write this on St. Therese’s Feast Day. So many ideas I wish to express in my heart to you, my dear reader. Yet, I feel I am called to focus on one idea. Simplicity. Saint Therese wasn’t a great saint because she discovered the “Little Way.” Saint Therese wasn’t a great saint because ofContinue reading “Simplicity”
To be honest, I want to reflect on the innocence of a child. I was out yesterday, heading to my church to make a private holy hour. On the news, NPR, the host of the radio show, said, “Children are able to boil things down to such an innocent truth.” While I was driving, IContinue reading “Little Way”
I was in church yesterday, praying to Lord as I stared up at the crucifix. I’ve been struggling with a lot of anxieties and just an… sense of great unease. I first thanked God for giving two of his most trusted saints, St. Therese and St. Joan. Thank you for giving me two amazing friendsContinue reading “Strength”
My dearest friend, The words I wish I could speak. The emotions I wish to convey. The Lord alone knows these unknowable feelings that sprout up. The tightness in my chest and the lump in my throat prevent me from truly expressing the things I wish for you to know. I take the most… difficultContinue reading “A Letter to Saint Joan”
Have you ever had multiple options in life. For example, going to an ice cream shop, how many opportunities do you have? Have you thought about combining different flavors? I know I have. Sometimes in life, we are given too many options. Go left or right at the fork of the road. Sometimes it’s anContinue reading “Too Many Options”
