Third Day of Advent
Today is the feast day of St. Andrew. This also means that the St. Andrew novena starts today. It’s this really nice little prayer that you say fifteen times a day every day until the feast of Christmas. It doesn’t work the same as a nine-day novena, but it’s still considered one because it’s a prayer that is repeated over a series of days. This novena isn’t addressed...
Sometimes, it can be painful when God comes in and rearranges our life. But have faith! God’s answers are wiser than our prayers.

I couldn’t find a good video from this year’s CNN Heroes Tribute. But this is from last year’s celebration. It still inspires me every time. If you’ve never watched footage from this tribute either year, please do yourself a favor and go check it out. This is my favorite scene from any one yet. “Serve. Serve well. Serve others above yourself, and be happy to...
