Fr. Philip Bochanski, the Associate Director of Courage International, gives his talk titled “The One Who Has Hope Lives Differently” at the 2015 Courage Conference at the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, IL. He reflects that giving people the hope to be able to live the difficult precepts on the Church is the essence of the Courage Apostolate and how this hope compares so favorably to the opposite of despair or complacency.

Courage is a Roman Catholic Apostolate to those who experience same sex attraction, providing them moral and community support to help them live according to the teachings of the Church. Most of the content of these excellent talks is fully applicable to people of any orientation, worthwhile to all. http://couragerc.org/

A Prayer for the Year for Consecrated Life

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

One Minute Meditation

As we continue on in this dedicated year:

Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life:

Oh God, throughout the ages You have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the Evangelical councils of poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give You thanks for these courageous witnesses of faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to You.

Continue to enrich Your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
