St. Joseph 2018

Monday, March 19, is the feast of St. Joseph, the Husband of Mary. It is a feast of great importance in the Church. Without Joseph’s loving trust as husband of Mary our faith story would be very different. Let us take a few moments with St. Joseph today in prayer. As we say our daily prayer with St. Joseph for Vocations perhaps we might do so in a more intense way today


Ash Wednesday 2018

The poor, little house was clean and tidy, and she hung up her apron and went out into the sunlit yard where her little son was kneeling near the ashes where she had earlier baked the day's bread. She went over to him, ruffling his hair affectionately and then looked with a tremor of fear at the endless lines of little crosses he was drawing with the ashes.
