Anger is a powerful emotion, and it drives quite a variety of actions. It can be used to wound people, but can also be used for good. This emotion is something we are allowed to feel.

There is nothing wrong with being an introvert. Your goal shouldn’t be to figure out how to be an extrovert. I promise that they don’t have a monopoly on making friends.

Breaking up with someone you thought was “the one” can easily cause you to feel deceived or misled. Why would God build you up like that and let it be taken away?

But in our social-media-consumed world, sometimes the first inclination when we go on mission is to come back and to post a glamour shot surrounded by minorities from an impoverished community to Instagram with a trite caption featuring a bible verse and cute little saying about how much more was received than what was given.

Modesty can look different for different people — I’m just seeking to offer a new perspective, drawn from my own personal experiences.
I was in the middle of working on my own prayer life, and it’s not worth any less just because it didn’t look like anyone else’s. It only seemed ordinary because I was used to it, not because it was any less than enough.
Seriously – Jesus really does love you. This isn’t just a nice idea that we tell ourselves. It’s true. That being said, we should all try to do a better job of remembering what that really means for us. One good way to do this is to consider taking up a devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Yes, I spent a week in the convent when I was 16. And two weeks when I was 17. And a month when I was 18 and another when I was 19. Then at age 20 I entered the Daughters of St. Paul and the convent became my home.

For me, the central goal of posting on Instagram isn’t to get likes or rake in followers (although those certainly used to be some of my main motivations) but instead to present an authentic representation of who I am, what I do, and what I love. And, certainly, a central part of all three of these areas is my Catholic faith…
Pretty often, my friends and I will ask for each others prayers over specific situations in our lives, asking for certain virtues or strengths that we need. And it’s wonderful for friends to pray for each other. But, today, I present the idea of taking a step further.

However, even though we haven’t handpicked our parents, God still calls us to honor them. What does honoring them exactly mean when you don’t always feel like they’re on your side?

It is in this divine revelation that I am empowered to embrace my female identity even more fully. It is here that I am a woman, lovingly created in the image and likeness of God.

After a five year battle, I finally opened my heart to a loved one concerning pornography. It was the scariest and most freeing conversation I have ever had.
by Kate Seddon
I was tired of feeling like I was doing all this on my own. I had been carrying this large cross on my back with no one to help me. I knelt before the monstrance and began praying aloud, giving up my hate, anger, and pain to the Heavenly Father.

The moment you decide to block an account, a full shutdown of interaction between that profile and your own occurs. If someone is struggling to get the message you’ve tried to communicate to them, the block button might be the way to go. It is a power move for sure, but one that might be necessary for some situations.

We can only speak in a way that makes us open to the wildly creative, incomprehensible, and wholly incredible Spirit of God that transforms us and our world, making all things new.
