Heart of Darkness

And so begins the Sacred Triduum, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. In the timeless words of the poet Joyce Kilmer: Lord, Thou didst suffer more for me Than all the hosts of land and sea. So let me render back again This millionth of Thy gift. Amen. (Prayer of a Soldier in France)

Only Believe

When all the friends of Jairus were telling him that his daughter was dead, don’t bother the Teacher, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid, only believe.” (Mk. 5:36)

Our Refuge

Mary, Mother of Jesus, has many titles, one of which is “Sweet Refuge”. We look to her as our safe place between earth and heaven, our sure link to her Son.
