We have all heard of devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, but maybe not all of us know the story of how it was spread, a story that illustrates God's surprising ways of working in the world. It was Our Lady of Fatima who gave this devotion its real push. ... Read More »

Each one of us has experienced God’s action in our lives in some special way, in a Bethlehem-like way, at least once: Maybe through a truly uncanny God-incidence, or through an answered prayer, or through the providential intervention of a friend or loved one.

When someone you trust promises that they will come through for you, you don’t feel alone. Your friend is promising you their presence. The Bible is filled with God’s promises to us. ... Read More »

These words of our Lord were spoken at the very end of His earthly life, just a few days before His crucifixion. His main point is that with His death and resurrection the Old Covenant will end, and the New Covenant, the age of the Church, will begin. This ... Read More »
