Amy Welborn on Headline Bistro

Amy Welborn's latest column at Headline Bistro can be found here.
We are who we are: individual human beings, each with a unique, individual story, each with a soul of which we are acutely aware needs saving.
It is tempting, isn’t it, to live in the assumption that everything’s about us.
But then you (or at least I) hop (or trudge, more realistically) on a plane, sit down, strap yourself in, and are lifted into the air.
And from the air, you look down on the city you’re leaving or to which you’re traveling, and you see them: the dwelling and working places of thousands, of millions, just like you but completely different, each placed here by God, each called by Him to His heart. Some are listening and trying to follow, some are just trying to listen, and some are just deaf.
But they’re down there, living and working in the midst of a vast creation, every atom of it cared for by that loving God.
No, it’s not just about us.

Pentecost Novena

It's the first novena. The very first one.  The novena - nine days of prayer - prayed by the apostles, that led up to Pentecost.

Read about it and the traditional Pentecost Novena prayers here. 

The Church's Most Powerful Novenas is a book of novenas connected with particular shrines.  Michael Dubruiel wrote in the introduction to this book he compiled:

When Jesus ascended into heaven, he told his Apostles to stay where they were and to "wait for the gift" that the Father had promised: the Holy Spirit.  The Apostles did as the Lord commanded them. "They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers" (Acts 1:14). Nine days passed; then, they received the gift of the Holy spirit, as had been promised. May we stay together with the church, awaiting in faith with Our Blessed Mother, as we trust entirely in God, who loves us more than we can ever know.

Mother's Day Gifts

amy welborn
The Catholic Woman's Book of Days would be a wonderful Mother's Day gift. It's a 365-day devotional written for Catholic women - all Catholic women. It is loosely tied to the liturgical year, is a very handy size, and features special devotions for several saints. It is not structured to be tied to any particular year. So it’s sort of perennial.

You can find more information and ordering information here.
