Fearless Friday: For the Faithful Departed

Our family has a heavy heart this week. My dear Aunt Miriam passed away this past Sunday. The wake and funeral was on Wednesday and Thursday and it breaks my heart that I wasn’t able to make the trip back to NY to be there.

Fearless Friday: Praying for the Children

I’m not a big fan of Halloween. My husband (and tons others, of course) see it as harmless fun; but not me. So much of Halloween glorifies evil and anything that glorifies evil or darkness bothers me. The costumes are often immodest and honestly, the logic in me thinks the idea of begging for candy

Fearless Friday: Consecration to the Divine Will

I have so many prayer cards, holy cards, rosaries, and other religious articles that I could probably open up my own religious goods store! lol!
