It’s no coincidence for us as Catholics that this trying time comes during our season of Lent. We gave God our hearts on Ash Wednesday, asking Him to purify us of our worldly desires. We gave up cookies, or maybe social media, gossip, or TV. Did we intend to give up everything else COVID has thrown on there? …probably not. But it’s here. And it’s out of our control. So what do we do about it?
We’re looking for an answer. We toss up a Hail Mary, close our eyes, open the Bible…and point. Bible Roulette. The answer to all of life’s questions. Right?

St. Alberto Hurtado, born in 1901 and canonized in 2005, is one of these saints. You may not have heard of him, but he’s a good one to add to the list of baller saints. He proves that God is still acting through bold witness even in recent history.

Hold onto your hats, folks, because Twenty One Pilots is back. After the massive success of their 2015 album Blurryface, TOP just dropped Trench.
…you don’t have to go to Spain to be transformed by pilgrimage. The lessons the Camino taught me can be learned in our daily lives, from anywhere around the globe — including wherever YOU are reading this.
When Jesus knocks—which He always does—do we close the door? Do we call out, “Sorry, I’m busy!” or, “There’s no room for you here.”? Is our floor cluttered and messy? Are we prepared to let Him in, or do we send Him away, onto the next home?
