  • The Power of Transformative Silence on Holy Saturday

    Rachel Forton - Apr 14, 2022
    Holy Saturday is a beautiful day of transition: what was is no more, and what will be is not yet. Waiting is at the very heart of the Paschal Mystery. After the pain and death of Good Friday, Jesus’ body enters the tomb. Now, we wait in silence.
  • Building on Lent: An Examen Prayer for the Easter Season

    Rachel Forton - Apr 13, 2022
    It does not make sense to simply abandon whatever practices helped us approach the Lord with less of a barrier between Him and ourselves during Lent. I propose an Easter Examen to reflect on your Lenten practices and adapt them to the Easter season, so that the graces received in Lent will continue to bless you and deepen your relationship with God.  
  • Halfway There: Reclaiming Lent If You’ve Lost Your Way

    John Kubasak - Mar 30, 2022
    If your Lent has started and misfired in any way, don’t despair.  There is still time to reset your Lent and finish strong.  Here are a handful of suggestions for moving forward to Easter.  
  • Mary’s Fiat: How To Celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation

    John Kubasak - Mar 24, 2022
    On this feast day, spend some time with Our Lord to reflect on this great mystery—the mystery that encapsulates salvation history in Our Lady’s womb. 
  • The Spirituality of Spring

    Jeannie Ewing - Mar 23, 2022
    If I wish to “bear fruit that will remain,” to be faithful and never falter from my place on God’s great grapevine, I must take heed from the lessons of nature that bestow on me a quiet beauty and a powerful lesson. I am not unlike the creatures and plants, in the sense that I, too, cycle through seasons of desolation and wait for seasons of growth and abundance. 
  • How to Live a Life of Constant Conversion

    Kenzie Worthing - Mar 17, 2022
    “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Mt 4:17). But what does this repentance really mean? It involves a recognition and confession of sin, a change of the interior disposition from sin and darkness to truth and light, and the abandonment of sin to begin a new way of life.
  • Fasting & Feasting: How to Celebrate Solemnities During Lent

    Sara and Justin Kraft - Mar 15, 2022
    Lent can seem long and dreary. However, the Church does not want us to experience it in this way and to this end offers us the opportunity to celebrate two great feasts in the midst of this penitential season. The Solemnity of St. Joseph (March 19) and the Solemnity of the Annunciation (March 25) stand as great celebrations and offer an oasis in the midst of Lent. 
  • 6 Ways to Prepare Children for Lent

    Jeannie Ewing - Feb 28, 2022
    Modern families struggle to find time to add anything into their schedules. I think the preparation for Lent should center around interior disposition rather than external behaviors. Even if you can incorporate one or two ways to grow in holiness as a family this Lenten season, it will bear fruit. Give God your meager offering, and He will multiply the graces you receive.
  • From Death to Life: The Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross

    Fr. Mike Liledahl - Sep 14, 2021
    By death Christ conquered death. The Cross is central to the Christian life, but why do we celebrate it in September? Fr. Michael reflects on the history and meaning of this great feast.
  • Living Life as a Pilgrim: An Attitude of Pilgrimage in Everyday Life

    Jeannie Ewing - Jul 22, 2021
    The concept of spiritual exile is akin to Christian life as a pilgrimage. For many, we vaguely accept the notion that we’re called to “carry our crosses,” but more often than not, this is merely a cliché we use to define our creed. In some ways, the concept of carrying a cross tailor-made for us becomes a way to identify our superiority, or even perceived martyrdom, rather than a path carved for us that radically transforms us.
  • The Paschal Mystery in the Context of the Passover

    Fr. Mike Liledahl - Mar 30, 2021
    As we celebrate the paschal mysteries this year, keep a sharp eye out for connections to the Jewish feast of the Passover, and as you do you’ll grow in a deeper appreciation not only for what Jesus was doing within the context of his time, but how God gradually prepared his people for the sacrificial offering of Jesus upon the cross on Good Friday.  The New Passover, the new deliverance, the new covenant.  
  • Grumbling in the Desert: 5 Tips to Not Complain During the Waiting

    Jeannie Ewing - Mar 9, 2021
    We tend to complain when we wait, because we do not see what God is doing in and around us. He often chooses to leave us blind to this work, because we must learn to grow in virtue, particularly patience and perseverance. Both can bear significant fruit in our interior lives if we allow them to unfurl during the trials of waiting for something to move, change, or happen.
  • 3 Lessons for Cultivating Obedience This Lent

    Sara and Justin Kraft - Mar 2, 2021

  • Why Penance? Removing Distraction to Focus on God

    Gillian Weyant - Feb 16, 2021
    “In acts of penance, we often will come away with a greater understanding of what in our everyday lives is taking our attention away from loving God as well as we can.” --Gillian Weyant  This week’s blog looks into the reason we take on acts of penance (alongside other spiritual practices) during the season of Lent and how to choose penance that is right for growth in your relationship with God.
  • 5 Bible Stories to Inspire You During Times of Trial

    Rachel Forton - Apr 7, 2020
    It is perhaps clearer now than at any point in our lifetime that we need God. We need a God who makes a way for us where there seems to be no way out. I hope that these five Biblical stories of our God’s providence will encourage your faith and trust in the only One who can truly provide for our every need.

Letter Lessons

The newest addition to The Cora Evans Library. “If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily, and follow Me” (Lk 9:23). Being a Catholic Christian is a call to action. Our God is not passive or indifferent or lukewarm. He is active, involved, and on fire. And He is vying with the devil for your soul. Following Jesus takes perseverance, self-denial, trust, and total commitment. This is not a book about Jesus; it’s about you and how you open yourself to Him in ways you’ve never even considered.”



The reflections of Cora Evans included in Gems reveal many new details about Catholic truths, deeper knowledge of theological truths, and new light and evidence to the deposit of faith, especially regarding the humanity of Christ, the Holy Eucharist and the indwelling of Christ.
