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!

When You Suffer

We learned this week that Jeff's newest book, "When You Suffer: Biblical Keys to Hope and Understanding" won an award through the CPA Book Awards. It won second place in the Scripture category! We have heard from many people how this book has helped them make sense of their suffering. If one can attach meaning to ones suffering, he or she can go through anything. Jeff's book explains this concept in a clear and understandable way. If you or someone you know is struggling with physical or emotional suffering, this may help answer many questions. We pray that you will be able to unite your suffering to Christ.
