As the election season heats up, the media notoriously attempts to get the Pope involved the election. This year is no exception. Through their questions, the media attempts to get the Pope to side with a candidate or make an official standpoint on an issue. Pope Francis appears to choose his words wisely and with clear intent. In this recent article titled, “Media Frenzy as Pope Speaks About Trump…But What Did the Holy Father Really Mean?” by quotes the Holy Father as saying:

“A person who only thinks about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

While not necessarily calling Trump out, he certainly makes it clear that as Christians, we are called to be bridges to Christ and one another. So, this begs the question of how this can be done in America where safety is a true and lasting concern? Do any of the candidates have an answer to that question? Nope. Which leads me to my greater concern in America. At a time of such unrest and divide in our country, the current set of political candidates, both Republican and Democratic, just don’t seem up to the task.

Those in line to lead our country are supposed to be the best America has to offer, the cream of the crop. Looking at the current lineup, I can’t help but wonder…Is this really the best that America has to offer?



Welcome to Lent! I probably shouldn’t state that with such excitement, after all, it is Lent. Wait, that might be a rule-no excitement. I’m not sure…

It is so easy to forget from one year to the next what Lent is, what it all means, and what we should and shouldn’t be doing. If, like me, you need a refresher course, the Catholic Church put this blog post out to help us (confused?) folks find our way.

Check it out!

          As winter approaches, there is nothing I like better than getting the kiddos into bed and cuddling up with the sweet Hubby under a warm blanket for a good movie. All too often, we are left with no idea what to watch. I can’t even begin to tell you the number of times we’ve qued up the Netfix, spent 20 minutes choosing, only to turn it off after 5 minutes in disgust. It has actually become a bit of a joke with us. Some people just assume it is because we can’t compromise, but that isn’t it at all. I love a good blow ’em up move as much as anybody and sweet Hubby is always willing to watch the latest drama {as long as there are NO subtitles!! Sigh.}. But when it comes to actually picking, we end up just staring at each other. So, without further ado, I present to you, from a spectacular list of the Top Ten Classic Movies for Catholics. Now, it should be noted that this does not include movies centered on Jesus or the saints (that is available in another listing-lucky Ducks-play your cards right and I just might be kind enough to share that with you too!

So, I guess the only thing left to decide is which to start with and who is grabbing the snacks! Which will you watch first?
