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)

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.

Child of Light

While the world celebrates New Year’s Day, on January 1 in the Catholic Church, the Solemnity of the Mother of God is also celebrated. Mary’s yes brought Light to the world.
