How Pope St. John Paul II Changed My Life...and My Marriage!

How Pope St. John Paul II Changed My Life...and My Marriage!

Growing up, I loved the idea of love, thanks to a steady diet of Disney magic and, later, romantic comedies. Fast-forward to college, and I realized my younger self’s concept of romance was little more than infatuation when compared to what it could really be.St. Pope John Paul II introduced me to another view, and I fell in love with love for real.My college boyfriend and I decided to attend a summer retreat in Allenspark, Colorado, where the pope stayed when he came to Denver for World Y...

How To Pray From Your Heart

How To Pray From Your Heart

This past month we celebrated a number of the Church’s great people of prayer: Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Therese of Lisieux, and Blessed Timothy Giaccardo. They were all masters not only of liturgical prayer, but of personal prayer. What does that mean? Very simply put, it means they prayed from within their own lives. They prayed who they were, so to speak. Would we put ourselves in that category? Do you and I pray, as St Therese did, “our own little way?”  Let’s...

St. Zélie and St. Louis Martin: A Family of Saints

St. Zélie and St. Louis Martin: A Family of Saints

Zélie Martin sat upright in the chair of the doctor’s office on that never-to-be-forgotten day in October 1876. She waited patiently for his verdict. Without raising his eyes, the doctor cleared his throat and began writing out a prescription. He said, “Madame, what you have is a tumor.”“Please be direct with me, doctor. What is the use of the prescription?”“Really, no use at all,” admitted the doctor.“Will an operation help me?”“I’m afraid not, Madame. We have diagnosed you too late....

It's Easter! Who Do You Wish Would Come Back to Church?

It's Easter! Who Do You Wish Would Come Back to Church?

In the early 90s I remember being in our Pauline Books and Media Center in San Diego one day. A woman came in for a First Communion gift for a niece. It was just before Easter. She dropped the comment that she hadn't been in a church for ages, asserting that if she went the building would probably "fall down." Most of us have probably heard these words before, perhaps from someone in our own family. When it is from our own family it hurts a lot. Why is that so?  "Going to church" is something we...

Love Answers Prayers

Love Answers Prayers

by Sr. Marie Paul Curley This week I celebrated my birthday. But this year, my birthday joy was mixed with the discomfort of transition and adjustment.  I transferred from Toronto to Boston earlier this month—from a small community of six sisters to a large community of about 80 sisters. The move, the initial settling in, the demands of my new departments, the effort to “catch up” to many projects already started (like our webathon)—all this “newness” has made for a beautiful but challeng...

A Profound Encounter with Jesus Christ

A Profound Encounter with Jesus Christ

We’ve heard it a thousand times: “Go out to all the world and tell the good news” (Mark 16:15). But what is this “Good News” that we are supposed to be proclaiming? At the heart our Catholic Faith is all about Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who loves us and for us was born, lived, died and is risen. In his forthcoming book Meeting Jesus Christ: Meditations on the Word, Monsignor J Brian Bransfield shows us how Jesus invites each of us to a personal relationship of discipleship. As we...

New Time Travel Series Teaches Kids about Jesus

Today CNS is featuring the new series Gospel Time Trekkers, fiction for kids ages 6-9. A couple years ago Sr. Grace, when she was editor of our children’s magazine, started writing fiction for kids. “As an editor of a magazine for children, I started reading a lot of kids books.

I had loved read...

Review of

Review of "Love and Responsibility"

Before Karol Wojtyla was elected to pope and became John Paul II, he had already written what was arguably his greatest work. Let that sink in for a moment. The great saint who gave us fourteen encyclicals such as Ecclesia De Eucharistia, Fides et Ratio, and Evangelium Vitae had already written a work greater than perhaps all of his encyclicals put together. This book was entitled Love and Responsibility, and if you love reading (soon-to-be) Saint John Paul II's writings then you'll definitely w...
