How to Get to Heaven Faster

By Charla Misse God wants you to see his face. He wants to embrace you. He wants to spend eternity with you. Our sins, however, prevent this from happening immediately when we pass.

Got Milkweed?

By Charla Misse When I see a butterfly, I am reminded of the miraculous transformations allowed by our supremely powerful and omniscient God in the Luminous Mysteries of the Holy Rosary. I think of all the opportunities we have for change in our lives and the great mercy that our Lord extends to us.

In Her Hands

By Charla Misse Today, I recalled the Wedding Feast at Cana, one of my favorite mysteries of the holy rosary.

Prayer for our Fathers

By Charla Spalluto Misse Please, pray for our priests.  They are in need of our prayers. Take time to reflect that they have sacrificed their lives for our eternal salvation.  Every moment, they are called to serve and guide us, to humble themselves.

Be the One

By Charla Spalluto Misse There is a Biblical event that comes to my mind often – when Jesus cleansed 10 lepers (Luke 17:11-19). Briefly, in this event, 10 lepers call out to Jesus to have mercy on them. He tells them to go and show themselves to the priests (who would declare whether they remained […]

Storm Debris

By Charla Spalluto Misse My schedule, like everyone else’s, was turned upside down with the recent storms. After a few days of shock, I was ready to get back on track. Three days after the storm, I finally went for a morning run.  Many people were still clearing their yards.  Power crews were in the […]

The Kingdom of God

By Charla Spalluto Misse I love school; I delight in learning.  I get excited about knowledge theory and creativity.  I certainly feel blessed to participate in my child’s education. I enjoy knowing what he is learning so that we can discuss it, expound on it and possibly find references in our daily activities.  I love […]
