Parable of the Lost Kitties

It always seemed ridiculous to me, to leave 99 sheep behind to search for one that’s lost. And I’m Catholic, and belong to a ministry that reaches out to Catholics who have lost their way and have left the Church. But last night, I got it. I finally did. The story, or parable, of the […] Read more…

God Moment of the Day (Monday)

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/09/10/god-moment-of-the-day-monday/ I was almost a wreck when I left home for Landings on Monday evening. Matthew was fine in the care of our new helper – all he did was look forlornly at me as I bade him goodbye (in a somewhat upbeat manner to mask the anxiety I was feeling).

My vocation away from church

This photo here, captures that very moment when I was baptised (10 April 2004) and the subsequent years after was when my faith was nurtured, tested, solidified and constantly renewed, with every bump […] Read more…

A peace that the world cannot give

I found myself travelling back some nine years in time, all from one line in the Gospel reading at Mass yesterday. That line is from John 14:27: “Peace I give you, My peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is My gift to you. Do not let your hearts be […] Read more…
