He is risen! Alleluia!

We celebrate Ss. Philip & James as Apostles, Bishops and Martyrs this week.

We also celebrate (even if we can't pronounce) St. Athanasius (Ath-an-ay-shuss) who, while not martyred, withstood extreme persecution for refusing to go along with the crowd (including most of the Eastern Bishops) that embraced Arianism.

Also, happy Mothers day to all!

St. Athanasius

Some saints are called to live out their vocation in quiet and with the support of their family and friends. 

Athanasius was given grace to walk (and at one point row) a harder road.

Some Thoughts for Reflection

Catholicism, Woman & Motherhood

Motherhood's Greatness

GUEST EDITORIAL: In honoring mothers, most especially the Mother of God, the Church helps them to give more fully of themselves and thus find themselves. Mother's Day is likely to be a time of reunion and even greater appreciation for moms than before 2020's pandemic.

Is Christianity Anti-Woman?

Is Christianity "Anti-Woman"?

A common slur against Christians in general and Catholics specifically is that we are "Anti-Woman". (Which is ironic that many of these people have recently come out stating that they cannot define what a woman is...and that we should get rid of the word "mother" and replace it with "birthing person"...)

But is the Church a "patriarchal" system bent on exploiting women, as the feminist's narrative of the past 50 years claims? Or is that narrative turning a bling eye to the Church's teaching, tradition, and example of reverencing and honoring the unique feminine genius?
