Lenten Mercy Challenge: Pray & Fast During Lent This Year of Mercy PDF Print E-mail

Lenten Mercy Challenge FlyerCan you believe it is almost Lent already? It seems like Dominick and I just put the Christmas tree away and took down the decorations! But I think that this year it seems we need Lent early. Snow storms, the presidential election, the crises in the Middle East and Europe, Planned Parenthood scandals, and a world that seems bent on descending into more chaos and confusion really brings forth to me how important it is to slow down and concentrate on what is really important – to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and bring His light to this dark world. We need the time Lent provides to go deep in prayer with the Lord. To reevaluate what He wants us to do to spread His love and mercy to those we come in contact with.


Pope Francis declared this year to be the Year of Mercy and he has encouraged us to do acts of mercy this Lent. Lent is supposed to be a time of prayer and penance for our sins. Traditionally, the Church has encouraged prayer, fasting and almsgiving - which itself is an act of Mercy. This Year of Mercy is special and Dominick and I are going to be doing something a little different than what we would normally do.


In this season of campaigns, the MyConsecration.org ministry has just launched the best type of campaign – a Lenten one that draws us closer to Christ called #LentenMercyChallenge. This campaign encourages both experienced Catholics, and those who may not have participated seriously in Lent before, to pray a decade of the Rosary and fast on bread and water at lunch on Fridays during the six weeks of Lent - while offering these as a sacrifice to God for a specific intention as an act of Mercy.


The Bible says prayer and fasting together are very powerful:


"Know ye that the Lord will hear your prayers,

if you continue with perseverance in fastings and prayers in the sight of the Lord.

-  Judith 4:11

At Fatima, the Blessed Mother encouraged us to pray and fast for peace in our world and this is an extension of that.


If you have someone you would like to pray for, for example, a sick relative, or friend who is going through a tough time, for the safety of a relative serving in the military, or you have a special general intention like praying for peace in the world, or for the election of a Godly president; then prayer and fasting shows the Lord you care very much and seriously want Him to help the situation. Jesus fasted and prayed 40 days and nights; and since we are called to imitate Him, we can be sure this is something that pleases the Lord.


If you have never prayed a decade of the Rosary before, it is pretty simple. You pray an Our Father, and 10 Hail Mary's, the Glory Be, and the Fatima Prayer while thinking about a specific time in Jesus's life. In this case, you can meditate on the Sorrowful Mysteries, which covers His passion and death. A decade of the Rosary literally takes about three minutes. And, if you do this while skipping lunch and eating only bread and drinking only water, the spiritual benefits will be increased. If you already pray the Rosary on Friday then just add an extra decade for your intention. I'm taking on this #LentenMercyChallenge and will be praying and fasting for my mother who is recovering from hip surgery.


I encourage you to join me and many others who are taking the #LentenMercyChallenge. To join this challenge, go to LentenMercyChallenge.org for details and be sure to spread the word online through email, your blog if you have one, and social media. Even if the Challenge is not for you, please spread the word, as others may find it helps them. Be sure to use the hashtag #LentenMercyChallenge. This is a wonderful offering to help others and show them the beauty of love and mercy.

Dynamic Duo! Extreme Makeover & Subverted PDF Print E-mail

Subverted  Extreme Makeover

Looking for a fabulous unique gift idea set for the everyday Catholic woman? These two power-packed books will equip any women in today's society with the truth about reality of what is continuing to happen to women in our society.


Sue Ellen Browder and Teresa Tomeo have both hit on a nerve in society that is not going away. Both were reporters in the secular media and both were leaders in supporting the feminist agenda. Both had conversions and powerful stories about how they left the secular media to focus their efforts in sharing with the world the truths of how the feminist movement has denigrated them and women all over the world.


Sue Elle Browder, a long-time freelance writer for Cosmopolitan magazine, shares in Subverted real-life stories of how this transpired in her life as a reporter and how she helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women's Movement.


Professional TV and radio journalist, Teresa Tomeo pulls together the latest research on social behavior and trends in order to demonstrate that women are harming themselves and their chances for true happiness by adopting the thoroughly modern, sexually liberated lifestyle portrayed in magazines and movies. Packed with not only persuasive statistics but also powerful personal testimonies, Extreme Makeover shows that it is not the slogans of the sexual revolution and the women's liberation movement that free and dignify women, but the beautiful teachings of the Catholic Church.


Tomeo gives the facts and research to support what Browder so eloquently shared in her life as a women in the feminist movement. These books are a must read for anyone concerned about the declining state of our culture.

Open Up the Big Picture of the Catholic Faith! PDF Print E-mail

Symbolon Learn More 400x216Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained is a new catechetical program that will help you learn the Catholic faith, teach you how to live it, and how to articulate it to others. I am so proud and excited to be part of this program, along with Johnnette Benkovic, Patrick Coffin, Jason and Crystalina Evert, Tim Gray, Curtis Martin, Chris Stefanick, and many others who unpack the Catholic faith and call people to live it more deeply.


You might be familiar with different aspects of the Catholic faith. But how does it all fit together? And what difference does it make for our lives? Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained opens up the “big picture” of the Catholic faith. Through beautifully crafted teaching and state-of-the-art video, author, speaker and theologian Dr. Edward Sri leads a team of dynamic teachers who provide a clear and comprehensive explanation of the Catholic faith.


Filmed on location in Rome, the Holy Land, Calcutta and in the Augustine Institute studios in Denver, Symbolon— Part I: Knowing the Faith journeys through the core teachings of the Catholic Church, and Symbolon—Part II: Living the Faith focuses on our encounter with God in the sacraments and moral life. It is produced by a strategic partnership of the Augustine Institute, Ignatius Press and Lighthouse Catholic Media.


If we are going on a journey, we want to make sure we are going in the right direction. In our walk with God, how do we know that we are following what Jesus and His apostles really taught? Symbolon helps us go in the right direction and help guide others. Its digital platform now enables parishes, schools and individuals to access all its resources online through a computer, phone or tablet. You and your whole family, your bible study group or small faith community can learn from excellent videos and tools. It is an excellent program for adult formation in your parish and in RCIA programs. Here is an excerpt of my video with Dr. Edward Sri.


Bringing Out the Best in Your Marriage PDF Print E-mail

Catholic Digest cover 9-2015 smMy husband, Deacon Dominick Pastore and I had the pleasure of speaking with Daria Sockey for an interview that is included in the latest issue of Catholic Digest magazine. The article, Bringing Out the Best in Marriage is about how you can improve your marriage through practicing the Works of Mercy. We may think that performing the Works of Mercy, such as feeding the hungry, or visiting the imprisoned, is something you do for strangers, but the concepts are also something that can deepen your relationship with your spouse.


I hope you'll enjoy the article as much as we enjoyed doing the interview. You'll find it at the Catholic Digest website.
