The Wakening

May 6, 2018

Before beginning this post, I said a prayer, paused for a moment and ate a Dove chocolate. The little note on the inside of the wrapper read, “Things have to fall apart in order for them to fall together.” Sure, it's a bit cheesy, cliché, and understated (which is usually true of all messages found […]

Sacred Space and Solitude

April 8, 2018

The best gift I have ever received is a pair of noise cancelling headphones. At the same time, I love my family with every fiber in my being, and am anxious to know all the details of their lives-what they are afraid of, dreaming about, and busy doing. For years, I felt that those two […]

Religion vs Relationship and Why It's Good That Our Young People Are Doubting

March 25, 2018

I spend most of my time with middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college-aged girls. And, I spend most of this time listening to girls (and boys) of all ages express their doubts and frustrations about faith and the Catholic Church. I wish I could sit here and tell you that I absorb these doubts with […]

When #MeToo Isn't Enough

March 15, 2018

Stories of the misuse of power and the manipulation and abuse of women sicken and anger me. I welcome the long overdue shift that is taking place in this regard. Women's collective voices have become impossible to ignore and are ushering in change. The #metoo movement has swept in, and I pray its influence will […]

Splitting rocks and killing lizards. Welcome to Lent.

February 13, 2018

“They did not thirst when He led them through the deserts; He made the water flow out of the rock for them; He split the rock and the water gushed forth.” Isaiah 48:21 I'm just returning from a trip with my family that gave us countless opportunities to wait. Just when I'd be about to […]

Count the Stars

January 20, 2018

He took him outside and said: “Look up at the sky and count the stars, if you can. Just so,” he added, “will your descendants be.” Genesis 15:5 “Count the stars,” God said. “What an impossibility,” Abram must have thought. There were just too many of them, and on a cloudy night, nothing could be […]

Starting the New Year Like Mary, the Holy Mother of God

January 1, 2018

  “As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:4 It's surprising to find myself struggling to find the right words when it comes to writing about Mary. Not because I have no words, but because I have too many. She's kind of my homegirl. Mary and me? […]

Remember This When You're Waiting Endlessly, or It Feels Like It

August 14, 2017

Waiting for suffering to end and relief to come would be so much easier if we knew the end date. If someone delivered the message, “You just have to hold on for x more days, and then your prayers are going to be answered,” most of us would muster up the courage and grit to […]

Happy Easter: Live Resurrected

April 15, 2017

“Bend the stubborn heart and will, melt the frozen, warm the chill” (The novena to the Holy Spirit) Happy Easter, my friends! Springtime is here, and hope is springing up all around us. It may be hard to see- it may be hidden- but it is always there. Today is the day we celebrate the […]

Letting Go of Comparing Myself to Others

February 1, 2016

I don't know about you, but the fact that today is Ash Wednesday makes me wonder where January went. I'm still finding stray Christmas ornaments in weird places around my house. But regardless of the fact that I feel like Advent has barely ended, it's time to gear up and figure out what I'm sacrificing […]
