Is This Real Life? It's Eternal Life!

There seems to be an ongoing pattern in my life:  I freak out about not being in control of a situation and then a day or two later, everything falls into place in God’s perfect time.   Well the last time this happened was about a month and a half ago.  I was quickly approaching…

Can You Imagine It?

This is my 100th post!! Yay!  I just found something completely worthy of taking this honored spot. My fellow blogger over at Bad Catholic just posted about a new movement called Imagine Sisters.  It’s brand new, so they’re still forming, but it’s basically just trying to get the word out about consecrated life.  It sounds…

Can't Anybody Find Me Somebody to Love?

Tonight I was talking to my friends about my future plans of nunhood.  I’m growing to love these conversations because they make me really examine my calling and sometimes even help me see it from a new perspective.  Besides the usual questions, one of my friends expressed genuine surprise at my life choice.  She pointed…

Jesus and Peter Have a Heart to Heart

Apparently commenting on the daily readings is going to become a theme.  Today, the gospel was one of my favorite bible passages. From the Gospel of John 21:15-19: After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them, he said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more…

On Wanting to be B.A. Like the Apostles

If you haven’t read the Acts of the Apostles, do it right now.  I’m serious.  Put down whatever you’re doing and read the entire books of Acts.  It’s one of the most important books of the Bible because it chronicles the development of the early Church.  Also, it tells the story of St. Paul who…

A Misunderstanding in the Family: The Prodigal Daughters Get Called Home

As you may have heard, there was recently an investigation into some women’s religious orders in the United States.  Although much as been written on this topic, I’m going to add my two cents, because there seems to be many misconceptions about what is actually going on.  A recent Washington Post article, “A Catholic ‘war on women’,” is…

The Power to Serve

Some people seem to think that the Church is simply a patriarchy run by a bunch of cranky old white men who just like to make up rules to make our lives miserable.  If that’s true, get me out! The Church I love can be summed up with one scene: Jesus washing the disciples feet…

True Freedom

*Disclaimer*  I am not a theologian – these are my thoughts and opinions.  Although I have a strong knowledge of Church doctrine and have researched these topics, I may be off slightly on the specifics.  Please feel free to point me in the right direction if I am wrong. It’s time.  Time to talk about…

The "aha" Moment

I think I fell in love with running yesterday.  The first time I went out a few weeks ago I experienced an endorphin rush and felt like I was on top of the world.  Since then, I’ve been dragging my feet and feeling like I want to die.  But yesterday, something clicked or I crossed…
