Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

Happy Feast Day!

On this Feast Day of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, we stop to remember to pray for our country, especially in light of the funeral for Philando Castile that will take place at the Cathedral of St. Paul, MN. St. Kateri is our patron for North America and lived during a time of much conflict between Native American tribes and between the white settlers and Native Americans and between Americans, British and French. Now when the world is in so much turmoil, it is still possible to find peace and meaning in simple devotion to Jesus Christ as did St. Kateri.

Our lives have been inspired by the short life of St. Kateri. For a full account of her life and miracles, please read Emily's book, Lily of the Mohawks, the Story of St. Kateri.

St. Kateri, pray for us!
