This year, there is no shortage of people telling you how to vote as a Catholic Christian in the upcoming Presidential elections, but it is up to each of us to discern an informed vote before approaching the polling place.  The question is, where do I find a non-partisan source to guide my decision in this intensely political world?  Well, I’m glad to say, there’s an App for that!

The Confraternity of Catholic Clergy has released a non-partisan guide to help voters make intelligent decisions this November and in future elections.  The Catholic Voting Guide is a free app available for the iPhone, Android and Windows phones and devices. The official description at the iTunes store states, "This application helps you cast a responsible vote using a well-formed conscience based on Catholic moral principles."

With clear, concise language, the Catholic Voting Guide walks you through the six vital issues that every citizen, regardless of religious belief, should weigh in casting his or her ballot - Right to Life, Religious Liberty, Sanctity of Marriage, Private Property, Access to Essential Goods and War & Peace.  Each vital issue is identified, represented by a picture and briefly explained with a focus on the key moral value at stake.

We have a duty and obligation to participate in the political process for the common good and vote in each election.  This free Voting Guide app can be used by anyone, regardless of religious belief, to walk through the values and principles important to Catholics, all Christians and to each American voter.  
“Parties change; candidates change; political issues change, but Catholic Values are the same yesterday, today … and forever.” Fr. JohnTrigilio, President of the CCC

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
