    Fr. Mike Liledahl - Feb 25, 2020
    If the crowds at Ash Wednesday Masses tell us anything, it is that Lent is a powerful season for people; one that speaks to them on a level they might not even understand. But, some people don’t like Lent, they see it as a drag and a drudgery. With that in mind, here is my biggest suggestion to those people, and actually to everybody who will be entering Lent.

    Jeannie Ewing - Mar 15, 2018
    This week, we focus on relationship. Many of us in our modern era feel isolated, alone, forgotten.

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.
