  • Have Great Faith in the Light of Christ

    Jeannie Ewing - Mar 8, 2018
    The juxtaposition of darkness and light has inspired poets, philosophers, artists, and writers for millennia. We think of darkness in terms of evil, or perhaps – especially if we have been through this experience – a sort of holy darkness, in which God hides Himself in the soul for a time of purgation. And light always reveals the truth. It warms, illuminates, enlightens, shines.
  • Read About the Amazing History of This Beautiful Practice

    Gillian Weyant - Mar 6, 2018
    This year on February 14, Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of the forty days of Lent.  The Great Fast is a time during which we as Catholics make extra efforts to offer prayers, sacrifices, fasting and almsgiving in order to prepare our hearts for the resurrected Jesus.  Many offer up daily penances of a more personal nature, such as avoiding a particular favorite treat or habit, and many also participate in the more universal devotions of Lent.  One of these devotions is the...
  • Pray for a Humble Spirit and Contrite Heart This Lent

    Jeannie Ewing - Mar 1, 2018
    We are all broken in different ways. It takes great humility to admit our sin, turn away from it, and follow God instead. Adopt the words of His endless mercy: “contrite heart,” “patience,” “healing,” and “grace.”
  • How Can Suffering Be a Blessing?

    Jeannie Ewing - Feb 22, 2018
    We’ve begun the season of refinement, repentance, and renewal. Now we must delve more deeply into ourselves, asking the Lord to reveal to us who we are as He sees us. In His gentle way, He will guide us to understand patterns of sin or vice that have become deeply embedded into our behaviors.
  • The Importance of Penance and What It Is

    Mary M. Dillon - Feb 20, 2018
    Throughout the history of the Church, Lent has been associated with the practice of penance through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, but why are we required to do these things?
  • Make This Lent Your Best Ever

    Jeannie Ewing - Feb 15, 2018
    Resist temptation. Repent. Come back. Detach. These, and many other, words we often hear during the Lenten season are difficult for us. As we begin our journey, we focus on Lent’s true message: reconciliation by way of God’s mercy.

    Veronica Dillon - Feb 13, 2018
    Lent is not eternal—the joy of today's celebration will again be a part of our daily lives, because of Christ's sacrifice. There are many Mardi Gras traditions around the world, but lots of fun and food are universal requirements!
  • This Is the Best Way to Live Lent with Your Family

    Jeannie Ewing - Feb 8, 2018
    Lent always comes when I least expect it—when I am most unprepared to welcome the penances necessary to the season. Here are some practical tips to help you tackle the challenge of spiritually preparing as a family unit.
  • Get Ready for Good Friday With These Reflections

    John Kubasak - Apr 13, 2017
    On Holy Thursday, Christ established the sacrament through which we experience His lasting presence on earth. The Eucharist encompasses the full revelation of Jesus Christ.  The Word is made flesh and dwells among us every Sunday in every Catholic Church, recalling the Incarnation and the Prologue of St. John’s Gospel.  The sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary is anticipated at the Last Supper ("this is My Body, which will be given up for you") and that sacrifice is mystically made...
  • Here Are the 11 Most Beautiful Images of Christ’s Passion

    Catherine Birri - Apr 11, 2017
    If you feel like you haven't spent enough time contemplating the Lenten or Sorrowful mysteries this year (or even if you have), now is the perfect time to spend a few minutes gazing on these paintings of our Lord's Passion. These images were so beautifully created, their mastery of art and depth of expression can move us to greater understanding and insight, intense spiritual reflection, or even tears. Each is a meditation unto itself. Use them as a starting point for your Holy Week...
  • Have the Most Meaningful Holy Week With These Reflections

    Jeannie Ewing - Apr 6, 2017
    Holy Week has nearly arrived. For many of us, this comes as a welcome relief. Sacrifice, mortification, and suffering do not come easily. We’d rather carry on in our comfortable lives than stretch ourselves until it hurts for love of Him who was stretched on a Cross for us. As we prepare our souls to accept and surrender to the weight of His love before entering into the lighthearted celebration of the Easter season, it behooves us to pause each day with some degree of solemn appreciation...
  • How to Have the Greatest Lent of Your Life: Week 5

    Gillian Weyant - Mar 30, 2017
    The liturgical season of Lent gives all of us an opportunity to consider the deeper truths of our faith. Lent is a retreat into silence, into contemplation; it is a season of work and retreat for hearts needing to make space for God. Its quiet hush can be of great help in our lives as Catholics, especially as we may become otherwise easily distracted by the disquieted and busy nature of our world. During this fifth week of Lent, let us consider the love and mercy shown to us by our God in many...

    W. P. Bennett - Mar 23, 2017

  • How to Have the Greatest Lent of Your Life: Week 3

    John Kubasak - Mar 16, 2017
    Lent is the perfect opportunity cultivate roots like the tree planted next to the stream: dig deep into grace.  Immerse yourself in the sacraments, especially the Eucharist and confession.  Make your prayers more frequent, and deepen them with fasting.  Practice the works of mercy, carrying your sacramental life and prayer life into action.  Those roots will help bear fruit when draughts come!

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.”

Gems

Gems

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.
