Welcome to my site, where I hope to help you grow in holiness in the Catholic Church–the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ. I hope that this site is helpful to you in hearing our Lord’s call to sanctity. May you never be lukewarm, but filled with great zeal for the salvation of souls. If you have fallen away from the Catholic Faith, now is the time to come back. Come back to the Sacrament of Confession and Mass. Perhaps https://www.catholicscomehome.org/ could also be helpful. The Saints in Heaven long for you to return.
If you are not Catholic but are exploring the Faith, hopefully this site will also prove helpful to you.
If you are struggling in your faith, hopefully this will be a helpful resource.
Know that I am praying for you. If you would like to contact me, use the contact link at the top of the page.
In this month of November we contemplate the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell. We pray for the souls of the faithful departed who are in purgatory and who rely entirely on our prayers. We must never deny them our prayers and suffrages.
Basil the Great:
I think that the noble athletes of God, who have wrestled all their lives with the invisible enemies, after they have escaped all of their persecutions and have come to the end of life, are examined by the prince of this world; and if they are found to have any wounds from their wrestling, any stains or effects of sin they are detained (Homilies on the Psalms 7:2 [ante A.D. 370]).
Let us help and commemorate them. If Job’s sons were purified by their father’s sacrifice [Job l:5), why would we doubt that our offerings for the dead bring them some consolation? Let us not hesitate to help those who have died and to offer our prayers for them (Homilies on First Corinthians 41:5 [A.D. 392]).
