Do you flockNote?

Shelly and I have been fans of Matt Warner's blog, Fallible Blogma, for some time, but only discovered his other creation, flockNote, in the Spring.

It is a great new, easy way to connect to your parish, diocese, and others in your Catholic community. Did I mention that it's free? There are two ways to "use" flockNote.

  • As a leader in the Catholic community, you can send notes to your entire flock – or just a specific group – without the frustrating job of managing multiple mailing lists by email.

  • As a member, you can get the latest news and information from the groups you care about – through the website, email, txt message, and more.

My "feeds" on flockNote subscribe me to blog posts by Fallible Blogma, CatholicFoodie, daily readings, notes from my Diocese and so many more. According to Matt, there are some great new updates to flockNote coming this Fall, including iPhone and FaceBook apps, tags, direct messaging, widgets and Twitter integration.

Check it out! Notify your parish of this great tool to reach their congregation and improve communication with their flock. Sign up for any number of informative, inspirational and fun feeds. The number of feeds available seem to grown daily.

We had the pleasure of meeting Matt in person at the CNMC back in June. Shelly and I discovered he was in the same college, with the same major, at the same time, as our brother. While they didn't seem to know each other, it was a great connection.
It was nice to put a face to the person behind flockNote and a great insightful Catholic social commentary, Fallible Blogma. His posts always cause me to stop and think.
Matt's third site, bringing Catholics on Twitter together is tweet Catholic. Since I'm not on Twitter, I can't tell you much except there are a lot of great people, some who I didn't even know were Catholic, listed. It's worth a trip over there to check it out.

Prayer to End the School Year

Another school year is coming to an end.  And what a year the 2017-2018 school year was..... The events of the last 9 months have made me not only thankful to see it end but needing to get on my knees to Thank God for many things.  This school year began with Hurricane Harvey hitting our area and ended with the devastating school shooting at nearby Santa Fe High School. In the middle of the crisis around us there were so many beautiful things, events and people that touched and changed our community and family for the better.  Let's just start with the teachers and administrators who have interacted with my kids this year...  A special social studies teacher that made a fast friend out of my geography obsessed daughter, an ELA teacher who slowly won my oldest daughter over with her love of the written word, a soccer trainer who pushed my son harder than he thought he could handle, and then helped him recognize how that hard work paid off.  What about a school nurse who repeated

My Favorite Catholic Children's Bibles

How do you select a Catholic Children's Bible?  Which children's bible is best for my kids?  Those are questions I get asked all the time.  Searching in my house I discovered almost a dozen different Catholic Bibles for kids or youth on our shelves. When looking for a children's bible or book of bible stories for children, there are several things to take into consideration.  How old is the child?  Do you want something easy to read in story form or a bible with scripture text?  How big or heavy is the book? Is the children's bible a keepsake to commemorate a special event like a baptism, first communion or confirmation? And the answers to these questions might change as the child grows and develops or you have multiple children. With those questions in mind, I'll delve into the Catholic Children's Bibles and Bible Stories we like best of those in our home.

12 Quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta

St. Teresa of Calcutta made a deep impression on me as a young girl as I watched her on tv and in news. Who doesn't remember the iconic picture of Mother Teresa with Princess Diana splashed across all magazines, newspapers and news shows?  To me, Saints were people who lived a long time ago, but here she was, a saint in the making.  Mother Teresa was a role model of how to become a Saint in our modern world, by giving her life to God through her dedication to the poor. On her feast day, I want to share with you a few of my favorite quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta.   Her words are seemingly simple and straightforward but packed with meaning.  My selection comes out of a new favorite book I picked up called, Mother Teresa: Her Essential Wisdom by Carol Kelly-Gangi.  This little book contains hundreds of quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta centered around specific themes as well as a summary of her biography and quotes about her from others.  "God does not demand that
