"Christ Triumphs through Humility" (Christmas)

Ruta-del-belen-de-Aragon-Torreciudad-crop By St. Josemaria Escriva

"'This day shall light shine upon us; for the Lord is born to us.' This is the great announcement which moves Christians today. Through them it is addressed to all mankind. God is here. This truth should fill our lives, and every Christmas should be for us a new and special meeting with God, when we allow his light and grace to enter deep into our soul."


"Am I Not Your Mother?" Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Vocation of Women

47cropBy Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem. 

"Our Lady is the Mother of God, exalted above the heavens as Queen of heaven and earth—but she is still our Mother, the sister of our flesh. She is of our kind. It is hard for us to combine in our imagination her great majesty and her concern for the humblest events and struggles that make up our lives—but it is true. That is what mothers do. And that is what our Lady came to Guadalupe to tell us."


Fulfilling the Fiat: Responding with Mary to God’s Call

the-virgin-of-the-annunciation-cropBy Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem. 

"If the consequences of the Immaculate Conception are displayed by the obedience of the Annunciation, then the Annunciation shows what our response to the dogma of the Immaculate Conception should be: unyielding fidelity to the Lord, with a firm confidence that 'For God, nothing will be impossible' (Lk 1:37). Our Mother learned what these words meant for her and she will teach us what Divine possibilities can open up in our lives if we too respond trustingly and wholeheartedly to the Lord’s calls."
