Giving Thanks All Year Long – 11.14.18 – Daily Mass

When we hear the Gospel of the ten lepers being healed, but only one giving thanks, we often think of it externally. We prefer to compare ourselves with others in terms of how much gratitude we have in comparison with our peers. Instead, maybe we should look within, and ask, why is it easy to have gratitude now close to Thanksgiving, what about the rest of the year? Shouldn’t we be grateful more that one out of twelve months?


Blessed Clelia Interview

At some point I’ll have to do a full story on my recent trip to Rome for the beatification of Blessed Clelia Merloni. It was an amazing, grace-filled experience.

While I was in Rome, I was interviewed by Catholic News Agency about Blessed Clelia’s spirituality, and legacy for the Church today. Please click the link below, read the story, and help spread the spirituality of Blessed Clelia Merloni.
