Louis and Zélie — St. Thérèse’s Incomparable Parents and Church Builders

The most famous of their children is St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, who spoke effusively about how she had been blessed with “incomparable parents” and how God had given her “a mother and a father more worthy of heaven than of earth.”

The feast of the first married couple canonized together is July 12.

We as women have a very special role to play in society. In order to reach our fullest potential, however, we must know who we are as Catholic women. The Catholic Church is the fullness of truth. It is our inheritance and we are invited to receive it and let it transform us.
.
Have you ever stood in the back of a cathedral and felt the weight of Catholicism? It is the vast story of God revealing himself to His people, saving them and sanctifying them. It is the unending journey that humanity is on to find Him, to know Him and to make His known. This story is our story and we have a part to play.
.
We can not however know where we fit if we aren't familiar with Jesus, His Word, and His Church. Endow seeks to help each woman find her place in this story and to receive her inheritance by bringing women into small group communities so that, through friendship, women can learn what this story means to them personally, for their families, and society.

From Endow:

"It is within the family that we are meant to learn the Gospel and how to live it out with those closest to us. It is from here that we can bring it into the rest of the world.

Pray for our families, that they would be restored to reflect God's love they way they were meant to."

" We are all aware that the perfect family does not exist, nor does the perfect husband, nor the perfect wife. We exist, and we are sinners. Jesus, who knows us well, teaches us a secret: never let a day go by with asking forgiveness, or without restoring peace in your home." - Pope Francis
.
The teachings of the Church, upheld in Humanae Vitae remind us that the family is a reflection of God's love and our desperate need for His mercy. It is within the family that we are meant to learn the gospel and how to live it out with those closest to us. It is from here that we can bring it into the rest of the world.
.
Pray for our families, that they would be restored to reflect God's love they way they were meant to.

Too often a person looks at the past year and beholds only the shambles of the good resolutions he made last year concerning his predominant fault or some virtue he wanted to acquire. Appalled at his lack of success at another year’s end, he says once again to himself or to his director, “Why do...

Discover Beauty's Power to Save Souls

What is beauty? Why do we need it?

Go to a church where nothing has been invested in beauty, and then ask: Is that parish a stronghold of truth? Is that parish a stronghold of goodness?

It’s no coincidence that faith communities that ignore beauty are often lukewarm and poorly catechized. If you get rid of truth, beauty goes too.

According to a recent statistic, 40% of the women who have abortions are regular Church attendees. In the face of an unexpected pregnancy, they reported that they feel judged and unwelcome and so they look for advice and support elsewhere.

Endow's 8 week reflection guide, "Footprints" was created to provide spiritual, emotional, and physical support for our sisters-in-Christ who may feel more alone than ever so that the Church can again become the first place a woman turns to for help and guidance.

We were meant to shoulder one another's burdens.

Hell isn't what you think it is

For 2,000 years, Christians have kept the Faith by meditating on the Four Last Things. From them, we come to learn the nature of sin and its frightful consequences.

Today, most funeral sermons speak of Heaven. Few speak of Judgment. And almost none speak of Hell.

Thanks for #CookingwiththeSaints, Bonnie L. Engstrom! #honeycake #StJohntheBaptist

Nailed it!
Today I made Honey Cake for our family's celebration of St. John the Baptist's birthday. I used a recipe from the new cookbook from @sophiainstitute Cooking With the Saints. This is not what the cake is supposed to look like, but the top half stayed in the bundt pan and I tried to hide the crumbles with icing and ended up with this. It's not pretty, which is my fault, but it is delicious.

"Edith Stein, a brilliant intellectual who had embraced atheism, was slowly transformed by divine grace and the example of true Christians."

Learn more from @Endow's study: https://endowgroups.org/studies/edith-stein-seeker-of-truth

Edith Stein, a brilliant intellectual who had embraced atheism was slowly transformed by divine grace and the example of true Christians. On one trip with a friend she was deeply impacted by a sculpture group of the Passion that stood on a Flemish grave.
.
As she stood in a cathedral, she saw an ordinary woman enter with her groceries to sit down and pray. She had never witnessed such an ordinary display of intimacy with the divine.
.
She took care of her mentor's widow. Expecting her to be distraught, she quickly found that she was dealing with a self possessed woman who understood the power of redemptive suffering.
.
It was the power of these ordinary moments of God's hand in the lives of His people that opened her heart to eventually become Catholic.

"And so we see the youthful seeker, Edith Stein, as she journeyed through life- involving herself in all manner of activities suitable for a girl her age - and always ready to pause in her busyness to drink in the beauty around her. As Stein's intellectual gifts matured, she looked for answers to larger questions of life. What Being controls the universe? What is the underpinning of all human experience?" - "Seeker of Truth", Endow study on the life of Edith Stein.
.
Saint statues remind us that we are called to become saints and that we can become saints. Sometimes however, they can make us forget that these men and women were filled with the vibrancy, inner life, imperfections and aching of the human soul.
.
A deep dive into the lives of these remarkable individuals reminds us that they were in fact human. The details of their souls, revealed in their stories should remind us that they are not that different from ourselves and that we have the freedom to respond to God in the same way that they did.
