  • Lessons from the Life of Cora Evans

    Jeannie Ewing - May 7, 2021
    Cora Evans’ spirituality is, quite possibly, so remarkable, because of her ordinariness. She was a lay woman, married with children, and did not possess any spectacular abilities or talents. Yet she strove, in her own way and along her own journey on Earth, toward Jesus. Her particular love for the Eucharist fortified her to perhaps even love the ordinary, rather than seek pomp and popularity.
  • The Benefits of Keeping a Prayer Journal

    Rachel Forton - Apr 14, 2021
    Keeping a prayer journal allows you to forever remember the beautiful ways God speaks to you in prayer and daily living, and even to pass down to future generations those stories of God’s particular faithfulness to you and your family. Your prayer journal serves as a reminder of God’s activity in your life and a record of God’s love when it feels as though God has become silent, and the process of keeping it can be an avenue of prayer in itself.

  • 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.  
  • St. Joseph is the Man!

  • 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.

  • St. Josephine Bakhita: Grace Amidst Suffering

    Hannah Crites - Feb 11, 2021

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
