Bringing Back Lapsed Catholics

"Most of these people have one thing in common: they think the Church doesn’t want them back. They think they’ve been away so long that the Church has rejected them. So, how do we bring them back?

Often the answer is amazingly simple: we just invite them back."

-Stephen Auth, The Missionary of Wall Street

"This book is about seven cultural revolutions that changed society for the better. These revolutions are the direct result of the presence of Christianity in the world and of the influence of the Christian Church on society.

But in a time when it has become fashionable once again to cheer the misfortunes of the Church and to highlight the Church’s failures as if they overshadow her faithfulness, it is important to point out the ways in which Christianity has made the world a better place and to demonstrate that these far outweigh the times when a few leaders of the Church have failed in their mission."

The Perennial Truth About St. Joseph

Today as both family and Church are under attack in so many different ways, it is to St. Joseph that we must look, just as in an earlier time the only answer to society’s ills was to "go to Joseph." (Genesis 41:55)

St. Joseph is a sort of ‘buried treasure’: to find it and to benefit spiritually — especially so for men — one has to ‘dig’.

The Blessed in Heaven Are with Us

Here's a sneak peek into Sr. Mary Ann Fatula's new book "Heaven's Splendor:"

Sometimes our deceased loved ones may make known their deeper presence with us through dreams. St. Ambrose tells us that his dreams were so consoling to him that he looked forward to sleeping at night, when his brother would visit and comfort him.

The bonds of love that the Trinity have formed among us on earth do not end at death, nor do those we have loved on earth abandon us when they die. They are still with us, and more dearly than ever. We can speak to them and enjoy their sweet embrace deep in our souls. …

Heaven's Splendor

Who can tell us more about the blessed realm of Heaven than the saints?

The wisdom of the saints in these sublimely beautiful pages will quench your fear of death and awaken in you a blessed hunger to join your departed loved ones and to delight with them in the Three Divine Persons who are the very heart of Heaven's splendor.

Prayer is at the heart of discernment. When one of her students asked her, “Can you advise me about my future?” St. Edith Stein replied, “Let us pray together to get an answer from God."

When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth.

Mercy Heals Fear to Trust

Trust helps us to develop a love of mystery while letting go of the need to know. That’s the freedom for which we are created.

Fear is listed in the Catechism under the category of the morality of the passions. Fear is a human passion. Passions are neutral, “neither good or evil” (CCC 1767). There are many passions, but the principal ones are “love and hatred, desire and fear, joy, sadness, and anger” (CCC 1772). .....

"O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!" (Diary, 84)

"We tend to think of a 'fount' as a quiet spring or delicate water fountain. But St. Faustina said Christ’s blood and water 'gushed' from His heart. In that sense, it’s a Niagara Falls of love, a flooded river of grace, a tsunami of forgiveness. It can knock us over, sweep us away, and lift us higher and higher . . . and closer and closer to him."

Our Lord Turns Defeat Into Victory

"The great lesson of Easter Day is that a Victor may be judged from a double point of view: that of the world and that of God. From the world’s point of view, Christ failed on Good Friday. From God’s point of view, Christ had won."

-Fulton Sheen, God's World and Our Place in It

He who was defeated in the eyes of the world is the victor in the eyes of God, and so on Easter Day I sing, not the song of the victors, but of those who go down to defeat.

These men were evil and the executors of an evil design. Never­theless their actions were a fulfillment of a prophecy. What they were doing was being used by God and fitted into the great plan of our redemption.

Our Lord permitted something of His divine power and majesty to shine forth in His words and looks, and His enemies recoiled quickly, falling over those immediately behind them.

"The forest fire that ravaged the cathedral of Notre Dame burnt away dense layers of history, good, bad, ugly and beautiful piled up as ashes on the ground."

Architecturally, the Cathedral of Notre Dame of Paris spanned the age of endurance to the era of transcendence. Begun in 1163 when the sturdy Romanesque style demanded chunky columns and low slung …

“Silence is a sword in the spiritual struggle. A talkative soul will never attain sanctity. The sword of silence will cut off everything that would like to cling to the soul.” Diary, 477

Someone makes a smarmy remark about us and we relish the clever, cutting come-back we have ready to fire back. To which St. Faustina says: Wait. Take a breath and consider Jesus’ Passion, which included His torturers taking verbal shots at Him. To which He replied… nothing.

Christ, Loneliness, and Redemptive Suffering

Christ's love still goes out to those who let Him down or even betray Him, provided we are willing to ask for forgiveness.

Christ's example teaches us not only how to cope with suffering but how to tap into redemptive suffering, by “offering up” our sufferings, joining them with Christ’s Passion, for the remission of sins and for spiritual benefits for ourselves and for others.
