Purgatory: Work of Divine Mercy

Purgatory: Work of Divine Mercy
By Marianne Lorraine Trouvé, FSP“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4)If you look back on your life, what did you most desire when you were a child, or a teenager, or a young adult? Whether it was a favorite toy, a place on the track team, or the school of your dreams, most of us can laugh when we think of what we wanted so much back then. Now, years later, do we even remember what we wanted so badly? Probably not. As we grow and mature, our des...

5 Ways Pope Francis Has Touched My Heart

5 Ways Pope Francis Has Touched My Heart
I have been blessed to be able to follow closely Pope Francis’ visit with us here in the USA. I was sure that the Pope’s visit on Saturday and Sunday at the World Meeting of Families would be my favorite (and maybe it still will be!), but I have been deeply moved by the first three days of the visit of Pope Francis—both his generous sharing of himself with us, and by his fatherly words to us.St. John Paul II was “my” Pope, and I will never be able to fully express how much as a spiritual fa...

How TOB Can Help You Have a Happier Life

How TOB Can Help You Have a Happier Life
A couple years ago I went to a Theology of the Body (TOB) Congress in Philadelphia. One thing stood out for me: so many people I talked to said that learning about TOB had made their life happier. I recall one man who was an ordinary Catholic guy—I’ll call him Joe from New Jersey. He said that his wife had started listening to talks about TOB and was very enthusiastic about it. He wasn’t too interested at first. His wife, however, would play the CDs when the two of them were in the car. After...

The Sisters Who Get the Word Out: Webathon Novena Day 8
Our Webathon Novena continues, focusing on the use of media for evangelization. Clearly, it's not enough simply to produce inspiring media: The message has to reach people wherever they are. We Daughters of St. Paul work hard to maintain book centers where people can easily find uplifting and instructive media. But our book centers, as well as Catholic bookstores, parishes and individuals around the country, depend on the hidden work of our sisters in the shipping room here in Boston. With your ...

The Choir that Needs More than Music: Webathon Novena Day 7
In today's Webathon Novena, we pray for musicians, especially those who dedicate their talents to the worship of God. We are blessed to have a music studio here in the convent, the home of the Daughters of St. Paul choir. But it takes more than music to create an album! The choir depends on the skills of our sisters in Photography, Graphic Design and Shipping to make sure that the inspiring message they sing is reflected in the album art and packaging, and that the albums are speedily sent out. ...

The Nuns Who Never Retire: Webathon Novena Day 6
Since evangelization is a participation in the mission of Christ, it isn't so much a matter of what we do as of who we are, as followers of Jesus. No one knows this better than our senior sisters. On this day of our Webathon Novena for communicators, we pray in a special way for the elderly, that they might know that they still have an important, even fundamental role, in the Church's mission. We also invite you today to help us provide our senior sisters a spacious and comfortable area where th...

Intelligent Designers: Webathon Novena Day 5
Today's prayer in the Webathon Novena for communicators is for graphic designers, those talented artists who shape the visual environment of every book, magazine, product package or advertisement you see. Our sister-designers work with the same tools and the same artistic concern for authenticity. We like to think that their work consecrates the work of all graphic designers, gently encouraging them to put their talents at the service of truth. But our sisters face some extra challenges, since t...

The Artist without a Studio: Webathon Novena Day 3
The changing face of media means that not only do our methods of evangelization need to adapt, so do our buildings! Help us to renovate an old warehouse, making it a healthy and light-filled environment where our sister-artists can put beauty at the service of truth. The sisters need your helping hand! During this Webathon Novena, pray with us today for all artists, that their God-given talents may bring them and others closer to Divine Beauty.
