Spiritual Communion and a Blog Resurrected by Pandemic

It has been exactly 2 years since my last blog post. It's taken a worldwide crisis to get me to post again. In the work we are doing at the parish to reach people in new and different ways during this time when we are all staying home and Churches are closed, I am looking through a LOT of online material to see what we want to push out to our parishioners to comfort them at this time, and help them grow in their spiritual lives. In doing this I am coming across a lot of great stuff that may not go on our parish outlets, but may be helpful to people at this time. I am going to start posting some of that here.

The first is a Spiritual Communion video I cam across. It's beautifully done, short, and has a few great quotes that I hope people will find inspiring.

Be sure to view it in full screen.

Feeling Overwhelmed?

This is a great 6.5 minute video on dealing with being overwhelmed. I know. I just gave you something else to do! But this is worth it. "Forget what lies behind and strive ahead!"

What You Need to Know About the Immaculate Conception

Tomorrow is December 8th, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, and a Holy Day of
Obligation. It's a fantastic time for each of us to brush up on this awesome truth. The Immaculate Conception is not only dogmatically defined by the Church, but it is one of only a handful of dogmas that a pope has made an infallible statement regarding. It's ironic that an element of the faith that is so important is also so often completely misunderstood.

Take a few minutes and read the short article my Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio called Immaculate Conception and Mary as a Model of Faith.  Dr. D'Ambrosio also goes by the superhero name "Dr. Italy", and his superhero power is clearly explaining Systematic and Sacramental Theology. Reading this article is 5 minutes well spent!

recommend that every Catholic regularly attends a retreat or conference. If you are looking for a place to start, check out the Calendar on "Page 2." More updates will come as I run across conferences and events of interest.
