Video book review. This a very good read for anyone of any faith, or none, but for Catholics probably more needed. In this time of loss of faith, and perhaps lukewarmness in how we live out our faith, this book can help to rekindle our love of God and yes the Blessed Mother. https://queenofpeacemedia.com/of-men-and-mary-book-trailer/
The Rosary is a powerful way to pray. I have said the Rosary every day for years. It can keep one centered and focused throughout the day.
This is mostly for Catholics, but I know many non-Catholics who say the rosary and find it very helpful. Each person will pray in a unique way. The
same goes for the Rosary. If you are anti-catholic in your beliefs, then don't waste your time reading this ;-).--Br.MD
Jeffrey Epstein’s Soul, Prayer, Judgement, Mercy, and Hell
Famed Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel once quoted a saying from an ancient rabbinical text: the angels weep whenever a soul is condemned to Hell. Our Lord seemed to echo that angelic emotion with His agonized sweat in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night before He died. If the angels lament the loss of one soul, how much more does God mourn the loss of one whom He created in His image and likeness to live with Him forever?
I do believe that as more and more professionals come forward and talk about their NDEs that it will become harder to discount them. In a physicalist, universe these kinds of experiences would be impossible. However, I do understand that "Confirmation Bias" However, I do understand that "Confirmation Bias" can be an issue with any conversation that deals with seeking the truth, I suffer from it.
Jeffery Long has actually stated that the NDE proves the existence of God and the afterlife. He

I believe this is a very important talk given by a deeply intelligent young woman, who was able to break free of a toxic past.
The Lebanese saint who unites Christians and Muslims
One of the miracles documented by Matar at the end of December, when he spoke to CNA, was that of a 45-year-old Italian woman. Suffering from a neurological disease, she was hospitalized after it was discovered she had tried to commit suicide by consuming acid.
In the hospital, the doctors discovered that the damage to her esophagus and intestines was so extensive, “the last way possible to cure her was believing in God and praying,” M
Mark Mallett is a Catholic writer who I believe has something important to say. He speaks from a Catholic perspective and makes use of 'private revelation', which is scriptural in content, to explain God's mercy, as well as what is going on in the world.
I love this piece (essay) that speaks of the Infinite Mercy of God. I don't always agree with everything he says, but I always go away with something to ponder and pray over.
I hope that those who read this will also find not only consolati
Below is the text (lightly edited) of a recent homily given by a Catholic priest in the United States who wishes to remain anonymous.
Homily for the fourth Sunday after Pentecost By Father X
The sufferings of this present life are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come that will be revealed in us. Suffering is inevitably and eventually the lot of everyone on this earth. But suffering of itself alone neither transforms nor purifies. It may even be the cause of r
THE OPIATE OF UNBELIEF
The widespread and growing and always increasingly adamant denial of God and the repudiation of the spiritual dimension can be difficult to comprehend. This denial is always expressed with total conviction, no agnosticism, or questioning generally admitted.
It has long seemed to me that the inability to sense the sacred is a disability. The sense of the sacred is inherent in a human being. If this sense is lacking, it is no different from being without the ability
The Hour of Great Mercy
THE BOWELS OF MERCY
The Breath of Life that Jesus breathes upon the Apostles after His resurrection is the power to forgive sins. Suddenly, the dream and directive given to St. Joseph comes into view:
This is why Jesus came: to bestow mercy upon fallen mankind. Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, prophesied that a new “day shall dawn upon us from on high” when God will give “salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins.” It will come, he says:
