KITCHEN TABLE CHATS

Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.
"The important thing is that we do not let a single day go by in vain without putting it to good use for eternity"--Blessed Franz J├Ągerst├Ątter

Contemplating Divine Mercy

I received the following email from the Apostolate for Family Consecration:

Starting this March 11 (the 2nd week after Ash Wednesday) up to April 19, Divine Mercy Sunday (the Sunday after Easter), we invite you to join the Apostolate for Family Consecration as we pray for the outpouring of Divine Mercy on our families and our country - for the protection of families and the sanctity of marriage and human life, for those struggling with unemployment, for the recovery of our economy, for the safety of our military personnel in the Middle East and for grace and guidance for our civic leaders.
For 40 days, we will reflect on God's greatest attribute using the new Drawing Down Divine Mercy prayer and meditation book. It's a perfect meditation during this Lenten Season.

This new Drawing Down Divine Mercy prayer and meditation book is a complete presentation on the richness of the Divine Mercy devotion. It features 40-day meditations taken from Pope John Paul II's encyclical, "Rich in Mercy". It also includes excerpts from St. Faustina's diary and the prayers for the Divine Mercy novena which Our Lord gave to St. Faustina to be prayed from Good Friday until Divine Mercy Sunday.



You can order this book here. It will begin shipping on March 2nd.
