My little boy should arrive any day now. Having ventured beyond my due date, I’m experiencing Advent as the “season of patient waiting” to a very realistic extent this year. The extra days have given me ample time to reflect and prepare for both his arrival and the celebration of the arrival of the infant […]
Grandma didn’t always make chicken and rice casserole without the chicken. And she didn’t always ask mom three times if she wanted to save or throw out the leftover peas. But these moments became the ones seared in my memory in the years after she’d gone. Though watching her sporadic mental hiccups in her final […]
Getting married or have you recently tied the knot? Do you have a friend or family member who just got engaged? This book list is your ultimate shopping and reading guide. My husband and I are both avid readers, and engagement gave us a chance to try out a new literary genre: marriage preparation and […]
His words grabbed my attention like an alarm clock rousing me from sleep. It’s not as if the priest was saying anything I hadn’t heard before, but now, it was like I was hearing it for the first time. I was praying backward. Our private prayer is meant to mirror the public prayer of the […]

I have a few crisp memories of my grandparents on my mother’s side. One of them is a replaying, over-a-decade-old mental video of Grandpa trying to walk up the down escalator, when he realized that Grandma, my sister, and I had—like girls do—changed our mind at the last minute and decided to stay on the […]
“If we help you to read a church, we do it with the hope that you’ll be better able to pray a church. If you want to understand a church, you need to read it as a prayer book and not as an architecture textbook.” –Cardinal Donald Wuerl and Mike Aquilina, authors of The Church: […]
Unquestionably, my life is full of continuous, often exasperating battles between doing and being. Culture tells us that we are valuable because of what we do. It speaks to our senses, every moment of every day, telling us we need to do more. Our worth is based on what we accomplish, how we achieve, the […]
We know well the words that the centurion speaks to Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel: “I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof…” (Matt 8:8). We say them at each and every Mass. But have you ever taken time to reflect on the words following the Roman officer’s remarks to Jesus? Can you […]
