Feastday Freebies – St Therese of Lisieux

  Saint Therese of Lisieux is an inspiring saint – and that’s putting it mildly! Today, October 1, is her feastday and to celebrate we’re giving away some digital images for your devices. And there’s no catch! Read Sarah’s reflection on Saint Therese of Lisieux here and, for more spiritual insight you can’t go past the […]

Our Soul’s Reflection

Our Soul’s Reflection

  When you look at yourself in the mirror, what is it that you see? Do you see a beautiful and unique daughter of God, a coheir with Christ, a woman called to a particular vocation? Yeah, me neither. We’re too concerned by the lines that are growing deeper, or the blemishes that seem to […]

Supernatural Heroes

Supernatural Heroes

  There is a certain type of magnetism that pulls little boys towards fictional superheroes. As the mother of 3 boys (and 2 girls) I know this all too well! Certainly, there is little wrong in wanting to be a hero and save the day – nobody in my house actually enjoys playing the villain […]

Build Community

Build Community

  I’ve been working on a history book, alongside a priest from my diocese, for our upcoming diocesan centenary and as I’ve been writing chapters about the foundation of local parishes I’ve found myself lamenting days gone by. Ah, you say, the grass is always greener and I couldn’t agree more. No, I am not […]

Jesus We’re Here And We Love You

Jesus We’re Here And We Love You

  To say we struggled with the services over Easter this year is something of an understatement. And Good Friday proved to be too much altogether. To begin with, the cathedral was packed and our family of seven ended up being divided into two pews one behind the other which of course, Masters 3 and […]

God’s Nudging Comes In Silence

God’s Nudging Comes In Silence

Don’t Wait, Lead!

Don’t Wait, Lead!

  I have been devouring The Benedict Option by Rob Dreher (which, if you haven’t heard of yet you need to google it now and order a copy, I’m just saying) and whilst I am really loving the content there is something that’s bugging me. I mean, this guy has taken the time to research […]

How I Find Time To Blog

How I Find Time To Blog

  If there’s one question that I get asked a lot it’s this: how do you find the time to blog? Yes, I daresay that I seem fairly prolific, and so I could answer that I’m just good at time management. But that would not be true. I’m a busy mum of five and blogging […]

DIY Fatima Set

DIY Fatima Set

  This is a cute, and relatively easy to make, craft that will help your children reflect upon the story of Fatima. What you’ll need: 4 dolly pegs with stands (I buy mine in a pack of 6 from a local craft store) Craft glue Felt – green, white, brown are the main colours here […]

Book Review: The Holy Spirit, Fire Of Divine Love

Book Review: The Holy Spirit, Fire Of Divine Love

    This gem of a book is an exploration of the elusive Third person of the Holy Trinity: The Holy Spirit, and as such it expounds the different ways in which the Spirit is referred to, described and understood. I have to admit that I found that each chapter read somewhat like a homily […]
