  • St. Josephine Bakhita: Grace Amidst Suffering

    Hannah Crites - Feb 11, 2021
    Throughout her life, St. Josephine Bakhita endured unspeakable hardship and violence, so much so that she was stripped of her identity and dignity. But in that, she was able to blossom into one of the most beautiful, gentle saints we have the blessing to know.  
  • Ordinary Time: A Call to Discipleship

    Kenzie Worthing - Feb 4, 2021
    Ordinary Time is our chance to become the ordinary disciples – to put our discipleship in proper order in our ordinary lives. The apostles ought to be the model of how the faithful approach Ordinary Time: respond to the call, listen to the teaching, and dwell with Christ throughout our daily tasks. 
  • Learning from the Conversion of St. Paul

    John Kubasak - Jan 20, 2021
    The conversion lesson to us is that no conversion can take place without falling before God in humility.  Sometimes God steps in dramatically in our lives—our own road to Damascus—but not always.  We can’t expect or wait for a blinding flash of light, or hold in envy those that do have extraordinary conversions.  The essence of conversion is available to every single person: humility.

  • St. John of the Cross—Reflection on His Sayings of Light and Love

    Jeannie Ewing - Dec 14, 2020
    St. John of the Cross wrote tomes of pithy spiritual gems in both poetry and prose, containing sage advice glimmering with symbolism.

  • Why Did the Word Become Flesh?

    Kenzie Worthing - Dec 2, 2020
    May we spend this Advent season meditating more and more on the bewildering joy of the Incarnation. May we come to a fuller understanding of our need for redemption. May we come to a deeper awareness of God’s love for us and come to love him more. May we spend time in the Sacred Scripture observing Jesus and imitating him in our lives. May we not take for granted our status of divine sonship through the Sacraments. May we remember why the Word became flesh and remember to proclaim the Good...
  • 5 Tips for a Fruitful Advent During a Dark Time

    It’s been a difficult year. Kenzie Worthing reflects on how to make the most of this upcoming Advent season and await the coming of Christ, the light in the darkness. 
  • How to Make a More Contrite Confession

    Rachel Forton - Nov 17, 2020
    In our deeply flawed and hurting world, the fact that God readily and freely gives His mercy to all those willing to approach Him in repentance is simply amazing. We should not take for granted the beautiful healing God wishes to give us in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The more prepared we are to receive that healing, the more God can do for us. And you just may find that the more you approach God for forgiveness, the easier it is to extend that forgiveness to the other flawed human beings...
  • Why Having a Spiritual Director Is Important

    Jeannie Ewing - Nov 12, 2020
    Ten years ago, I’d stumbled upon a crossroads in my spiritual growth. I tried everything...Still, I felt stuck, stagnant. That’s when I knew I needed a spiritual director. A good spiritual director will not only listen to your qualms, but s/he will also leave you with important questions that you can – and should – take to prayer and confession. You will feel validated but challenged, uplifted but stirred to change.
  • How My Spiritual Life Has Changed Since COVID

    John Kubasak - Oct 20, 2020
    Daily life has not been the same since early this year.  COVID has upended our churches, schools, recreation, and work.  Is there an area of life it hasn’t disrupted?  Sometimes forgotten on that list, but definitely needed, is our spiritual life.  Here’s where the rubber meets the road in our practice of the faith.  Faith is meant to be with us always, but it is even more important during times of trial. 
  • Praying with Proverbs

    Gillian Weyant - Oct 12, 2020
    Reading the Old Testament can be daunting. In this article, Gillian Weyant provides some background and helpful strategies to meditate fruitfully with the book of Proverbs and to apply the lessons to our own lives. "It is impossible to recount the true depth of meaning contained in the book of Proverbs... In the turbulent times in which we live, it is worth taking some time in silence to consider what is important in life: the pursuit of holiness, wisdom and the knowledge of God."...
  • The (Often Unseen) Power of Intercessory Prayer

    Sara and Justin Kraft - Oct 6, 2020
    A basic tenet of our faith is that prayer is powerful. Unfortunately, and all too often, we do not live as if we believe this. I cannot count how many times I have prayed without confidence, without attention, and without expectation. It is an easy trap in which to fall. Yet, prayer of intercession offers us a beautiful opportunity to bless others and to be renewed by the grace of Jesus. 
  • Here’s Why You Should Add Reading ‘Rerum Novarum’ to Your Labor Day Weekend Plans

    Fr. Mike Liledahl - Sep 4, 2020

  • 5 Signs You Need a Break From Social Media

    Jeannie Ewing - Aug 20, 2020
    Those of us under the age of 45 may consider our social media platforms as our primary means of engaging in conversation, yet we wonder why we don’t feel more connected. When I was an undergraduate student in psychology, I recall a random fact that has stuck with me throughout these last twenty years: 85% of communication happens through body language, tonal inflection, and facial expressions. But what happens when nearly all our interactions take place online?

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.
