For Such a Time as This: What Esther Taught Me About Identity | Busted Halo

How can the story of Esther help us through times of waiting? Writer Manndi DeBoef shares what studying Esther taught her about identity, vocation, and submitting to God’s will:

When I start feeling melancholy about my life, I am reminded of Esther. A woman who lived her faith, despite the overwhelming fear I am certain she felt.

Father Dave on Bishops’ Vote for New Eucharistic Document

The Eucharist is a fundamental part of the Catholic faith. In this week’s podcast, Father Dave explains the U.S. bishops’ recent vote about whether or not to draft a new Eucharistic document.

FaceBook Live - Dave & Jen

Fr. Dave answers your summer questions of faith!

Here are the questions we answered:

2:07 - I understand that we are asked to not come to the Eucharist with a mortal sin on our soul. Did Judas have one at the Last Supper? If yes, wouldn't Jesus have denied him? Why not?

17:10 - There’s lots of praying for mercy for our failings during the mass... why isn't that enough or is there another purpose for confession?

19:56 - Why do we choose a name, usually a saint, during confirmation to help us along our faith journeys?

28:22 - Was Job a real person?

32:30 - Prayer for Regina’s friend, Estelle, who is unaccounted for in the Miami condo collapse.

34:55 - Is there a specific saint who will intercede with prayers to help heal someone's heart?

37:17 - Did Mary give birth to other children after Jesus? Why do we say the words “I ask blessed Mary ever virgin,” in the I confess to you prayer, if she had other non-miraculous, biological children?

These rose quartz gemstone beads display a lovely, unique pink tone. The natural, gentle pink essence and striking glimmer is a result of iron and titanium impurities in the natural stone.

As such, it is no surprise that this heirloom quality, traditional rosary is one of our most popular with brides.
