Today, I am addressing #catholicmetoo and #catholicmom and #catholicparenting thoughts in my recent post - Light & Mercy: One Mom's Response to the Scandal in the Catholic Church
"I have a confession to make to the readers and followers of my blog. I have been haphazard and remiss at blogging consistently because I have had massive writer's block. But, it's a self-imposed writer's block, as I have spent the past four months censoring some of the topics about which I typically enjoy writing. Now that Christmas cards have gone out, I'm ready to put a stop to my self-imposed censorship, and explain my inconsistent blogging habit." Today's post has been in the creation for months - let me sum it up briefly - my son's prayers are powerful, and I am more than willing to take any prayer intentions to him! 😉 Hope you will click to read the explanation provided within!
"Even now, this blog post is the most difficult one I have tried to write. As a historian, I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment attributed to Edmund Burke, 'Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.'” One year later, these sentiments still ring true, and I can think of no further words to express the day we know as Holocaust Remembrance Day.
We all have at least one moment in our lives where we are in agony, and faced with doing what we want, rather than what God is asking of us. Perhaps this simple prayer for just those times will touch you and inspire you to remember Jesus' example of "Thy will be done."
"Even if you don't feel the emotion, Pray Anyway. Even if you don't have a prayer in mind, or memorized, Pray Anyway. Even if you aren't sitting in a church, Pray Anyway. Invite God into your day, and into your life!" A lesson in prayer through Nineveh 90.
