O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen A Vision Of Victory After His Resurrection, Jesus remained on earth with his disciples for forty days.  For Forty days the disciples got to see and experience Jesus in His resurrected body. It is likely that without this glimpse of things to come it would have been near impossible for the apostles to have died the same kinds of death Jesus did.  The promise of glory needed to be seen concretely as a reality of the life to come after …

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Siena boasts St. Catherine. Assisi boasts St. Francis and St. Clare. Lourdes gives us St. Bernadette, etc. Spain, France, Germany all have many such places that vaunt well-known saints.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen The Imperative Of Charity The beginning of a new year can be a meaningful time to ask where we should find ourselves at the end of our journey. What are we meant to have accomplished? St. John of the Cross tells us that our personal judgment will be an examination in love. But what kind of love? We rightly or wrongly love many things, from pizza to sports to family and even to various kinds of sin. …

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.  Amen The Lavish and the Lowly Anyone who has watched a Hallmark Christmas movie knows both how predictable and unreal they are. People will often say the movies are “safe,” meaning no bad language and no sex. Just romantic. The incredible sets, noticeable in each movie, are lavishly decorated to convey the “magic” of Christmas.  Yet, there is something empty about the scenes, which they try to resolve by injecting a romantic story into the plotline.  The …

Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.  Amen Divine Intervention These days, many of us have a common prayer. That would be a prayer for some kind of divine intervention to halt the frightening directions our world seems to be headed in. And what would the ultimate purpose of that intervention be? Simply stopping evil isn’t enough. When we seriously reflect on it, intervention …

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.  Amen The Desire to be Seen Drawing attention to ourselves is not often viewed favorably. And yet, it is such a prevalent human activity that it moves one to reflect on the deeper things at play.  There is something fundamentally necessary about being seen.
