Don’t ‘declutter’ Catholicism

My friend attended a class on life after a divorce. She is Catholic. She loves the faith and simply wants to heal and be whole for Christ and his church. She lives in fidelity to the faith she has received.

Take the pilgrim’s plunge

I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to get the most out of this faith journey. How to go about it. How to open myself up to Jesus Christ.

Welcoming those who were lost

It is disheartening when people walk away from the church.

Sometimes, when we try to talk, they run at us like some kid on the opposite team in a game of red rover. They want to break through our line and pull somebody else from the church. They may even attempt to pull us away.
