  1. And she sits inside the starlight/Knowing that He is a king/But to her he’s still her baby/ And she looks upon her King now/And she worries for her son.

    -And She Worries For Her Son by Carol Barrington and Larry Hogan, 1975

    As a teenager, a friend shared that she had seen a picture of Mary in her mind. This picture was slightly unusual, because Mary was trying to get out of the way! She was pointing to someone else-her Son, Jesus. This remains for me a reminder of Mary’s role: to show us the way to Jesus. Mary’s humanity shines through for me. She is the mother who “worries for her son” and who puts her faith in God-even when she does not really understand what is happening.

  2. I have been really working at finding out about some wonderful ministries working for Jesus to spread the Good News, and be the Hands and Feet of Jesus in the world! I came across Veritas on instagram and was really in awe of the work they are doing! If we could all work together like this the world would be such a beautiful place! Here we hear from Gary VanHorn, Executive Director, Veritas Outreach

    Veritas Outreach is a street-level ministry that feeds, cloths and ministers to homeless folks wherever we find them. We collect donations of food, clothes, water, small amounts of cash, propane, tents, sleeping bags, and just about any gear we can get our hands on. We deliver all of these donated items to people who are living in the most heartbreaking conditions, such as abandoned cars, tents, cardboard shacks, you can only imagine. Tent cities are a growing phenomenon in almost every major city these days.
  3. We received this wonderful Update from Manuela at the Belize Rosary Mission Today on their May Mission! 

    Dear All,

     
    On May 13, 2016, feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, thousands of Belizeans gathered in a stadium in Belize City to participate in the largest Eucharist adoration and global living Rosary event in the country. At the start of the event, my aunt Thomasita was called up to the stage where she was acknowledged for the rosary mission work in Belize by touching each child, teacher and principal in the Catholic schools in all the villages, towns and cities nationwide.  She was honored with a plaque. 
    Manuela and Thomasita receive a plaque to express gratitude for their work
     
    Please keep praying for us as we travel to the Corozal district schools this week and to the Toledo District schools next week to teach the children the rosary.
     
    Thank You, 
    Manuela
