Reflection for Week 5 of Lent - 2nd Corinthians 5:17-21

Posted by Emily Laurin, Sophomore-Music Education on 22 March 2013

I have never been an exemplary Catholic. This statement is even hard for me to write and express to you. This year especially took a large toll on my faith. I’ve had many health problems within my family and asked the typical question which one asks God, that being, “Why do you keep doing this to my family?” My faith became faint and non-existent.  I kept praying that my family, especially my mother, would finally recover and could leave the hospital…but, my mother continued to get sicker. I noticed that prayer did nothing, thus causing me to lose faith completely in the one thing I thought was stable in my life, faith.

Pope Francis I: A New Pope from the New World!

Posted by Sister Marie Kolbe Zamora S.T.L., S.T.D. cand., Theology Program Director, Silver Lake College of the Holy Family on 14 March 2013

13 March 2013 was not a “business as usual” day in the life of the Catholic Church. The election of a Successor to St. Peter as Bishop of the Church of Rome that, by the will of Jesus Christ, presides over the Church of Rome and the entire Church in charity, is always a moment of profound grace, a moment in which the Holy Spirit is powerfully present. It is normal, then, that everything all over the Catholic world come to a screeching halt to receive the grace offered to each of us in the gift of a new Holy Father.
