St. Catherine McAuley

When I was a small child, my mom would keep me quiet and still during Sunday Mass by allowing me to gaze at her diamond ring. I would put her finger very close to my eye, making my vision blur. I was mesmerized by the kaleidoscope of colors as the light refracted off the facets of the diamond. I thought it was totally beautiful that God made it that way.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Some time ago, a young couple waited very anxiously for the birth of their second child. Because of a genetic blood disorder, this pregnancy was high risk. The couple spent many moments together praying for their unborn child’s health and welfare. Their 5-year-old son, Jason, also prayed while he waited with much excitement for the arrival of a little brother or sister.
