Let mercy overcome misery

February 09, 2016

It is the Year of Mercy, and people are starving for God’s mercy, even if they don’t recognize it. I was pleasantly surprised to see concrete evidence of this hunger at Mercy Chose Me, our archdiocesan conference on mercy. Close to 500 people packed the parish hall at Immaculate Heart of Mary in Northglenn to… Read more »

An invitation to a Roman Lent

February 09, 2016

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since my son, Stephen, and I spent two months in Rome – all of Lent and Easter Week – preparing a book that would allow readers to make the city’s ancient Lenten station church pilgrimage at home. But so it goes; tempus indeed fugit.  Yet the… Read more »

Like a lot of Catholics, every October growing up I was assigned a project related to the saints in preparation for All Saints’ Day.

Let your family culture set the tone for Advent

December 02, 2015

My husband and I recently celebrated our fourth anniversary of being received into the Catholic Church.  Our conversion is still somewhat of a beautiful mystery to me—how did we, of all people, manage to stumble upon the fullness of the faith?—and the more time that passes, the more I realize that our Catholic faith is… Read more »

Guiding Married Couples to the Divine Physician

September 17, 2015

We agonize, we hunger and we thirst for every couple that comes to us for marriage coaching.  Spouses call with trepidation, send emails crying out for help, share that their spouse may not come.  Pursued by the Holy Spirit, the “hound from heaven,” they end up walking through the doors of our simple office, sitting… Read more »

Expect the unexpected

January 15, 2016

By Jenny Kraska Expecting the unexpected is usually the best course of action to take when approaching a new legislative session. While there are plenty of expected pieces of legislation there are always other issues that pop up seemingly out of nowhere.  A new legislative session, much like the start of a new year, holds… Read more »

Where to draw the line in media

July 17, 2015

I heard a Christian speaker talking about needing to avoid certain movies and TV shows. Is it really a big deal what kind of entertainment I watch, listen to or read? Isn’t it better to know what’s going on in the world than be close off? This is an extremely important question. Not only is… Read more »
