The Neglected Sacrament
The Sacrament of Reconciliation went into a sharp decline after the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s. And yet, in the 1950s, Confession was a major part of people's Saturday afternoons.

Developing Roots
If we want to survive and overcome all that comes to us in this life, it is imperative that we develop and maintain strong, spiritual roots.

Developing A Listening Ear
If we are not daily plugging in to the Spirit, we will not have the mind of the Spirit, nor will we recognize His voice when He speaks.

In Search Of Wisdom
The way in which we spend our spare time is a direct reflection of just how hungry we are for the things of God.

Acting On The Word
We don't go to Mass simply to listen to the Word. It is required that we then go out and put into practice that which has been proclaimed.

Long applause for Pope Benedict
