I haven’t been able to blog much lately. Busy with several projects and expect to remain this busy until the latter half of the year. Also need to declutter my digital space badly, so for a while, my posts here will probably consist of compilations — articles I’ve read and saved on various notepads (by …
Growing in our spiritual life means that we sometimes need to do hard things. Leaving Facebook was one of those things for me. I’ve posted before my main reasons for leaving, but as I’ve been gone these six weeks I’ve been working on attaining greater purity and rectitude of intention with regards to the use …

A pro-lifer friend shared his concern with me this morning, asking if we should oppose bacon along with contraceptives, since bacon has been declared a Class 1 Carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. First of all, the processed meat and cancer connection is nothing new. I’ve heard that since I was a …
Typing this on a (still!) chilly spring morning while sipping John Lillis’ Lifeboat Coffee. Yum!! I first heard about Lifeboat Coffee through Facebook friends, and as we’re always on the look-out for pro-life businesses to support, I added Lifeboat to my shopping list. What a blessing to find out that they will donate 10% to …
A friend, Francis B., requested a list of my sources for pro-life news. So, in no particular order, my favorites: General Crisis Magazine First Things Catholic World Report MercatorNet NewAdvent.org National Catholic Register Abortion Live Action News Americans United for Life Students for Life National Right to Life News Priests for Life Blog Politics, Legislation, …
It’s been a little over 24 hours since I woke up to Facebook hopping (pun unintended) because of a remark the Pope made on the plane to Rome from Manila, where he spent four days with the Filipino people, celebrating, teaching, loving. Many are upset because once again, the Pope said something that just *hit* …
My hubby and I will be married 25 years in December. While we don’t claim to know everything there is to know about divorce-proofing a marriage, we do have some experience with growing a marriage to its 25th year. Hope this helps. 1. Start by eliminating DIVORCE from your vocabulary as a couple. My husband …
This is a repost of my Filipinos for Life blogging event entry for August. Thanks to DBoncan for hosting my post when I couldn’t get into my blog. There was a time in Philippine history when the words “sa awa ng Diyos” could come out of anyone’s mouth at any given moment. Trust in God’s …
Fascinating and creepy at the same time: Google Glass: How It Feels Contribute to Catholic Mom’s Project and help provide spiritual support for pregnant women (click on the pic to get there): — I just sent in my donation. Heritage House is holding a Free Pro-Life T-shirt Survey at their site. Only thing is, I …
Lenten Reading: On the dedication page of the book, there’s a quote from Blessed John Paul II, which he addressed to the Austrian bishops, but is quite applicable to us as parents. “Your first duty as pastors is not projects and organizations, but to lead your people to a deep intimacy with the Trinity.” I …
Continued from this post on Raising Pro-Life Children Amid A Culture of Death. There are many versions of an examination of conscience out there. I wrote this for our family, but I share this here in case it might be helpful to anyone else. Are we praying more? Have we committed to praying the Rosary? …
Well, it’s done. The RH Bill has passed in the Philippines. Now the real work begins. Some thoughts on this dreary Monday afternoon, as I ponder what my fellow Catholics and Filipino friends and family are facing: I’ve been thinking of everything I’ve done for the pro-life cause, but especially the last two years that …
These are exciting times. Religious persecution is a scary thing, I don’t think my children even fully grasp yet what is happening right now in the country, though we’ve explained it to them. But to see people of all faiths standing up for what is right, not just because it’s in our Constitution, but because …
A few short thoughts this morning before I get started on my mammoth list of to-dos: Samuel’s message from God to Saul. 1 Samuel 15:22-23: 22And Samuel said, “Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and …
