Fear, Faith, St. Peter, and I — by Renée Sylvain. I was asking myself what is my greatest obstacle to faith: I think the answer is fear....

When There Is No Solution — by Caryll Houselander. Dear __________, Stop trying to think out a solution for the moment; there isn’t one. One day there may be; God will then show it to you. In the meantime, accept it all as being the big...

Stories We Tell Ourselves About Sin — by Fr. Denis Lemieux. So, I’ve been thinking about sin quite a bit lately. Haven’t you? It’s kind of a Lenten thing to do, right?...

Light of My World — by a staff worker of MH. All that came to be had life in him, and that life was the light of men, a light that shines in the dark, a light that darkness could not overpower (Jn 1:1-5)....

We Are Saved Sinners — by Catherine Doherty. Baptism washes away our sin, but we can, of course, still sin any time. The Lord … left man free to make his own decisions (Eccl 15:14). God knows that after Baptism we will continue to...

Seek and You Will Find — by Loretta Fritz. I am a cradle Catholic: baptized, first communion, confirmation. My family went to church each Sunday. Faith was important. I had an experience of God at my confirmation when I was twelve, but by age eighteen,...

Old Bones, New Eyes — by a staff worker of MH. It is a wonderful thing when God gives us eyes that see, whenever he introduces us to a little more reality and truth. Our hearts expand, our vision grows wider and maybe even...

One Man’s Scrap, Another Man’s Gold (March 2014) — In March, we begin Lent. We enter into the sea of God’s mercy to be washed clean and forgiven. In this way, we prepare our hearts to receive the risen Christ when he comes at Easter....
