Daily Reflection

  • Celebration of Birth
    Posted by Franciscan Media on December 6, 2016 at 11:00 am

    If you take Christmas to heart and get past the anxieties in arranging for gifts and parties, you will rediscover yourself every year at this time and experience a birth in yourself, just like the one so beautifully described in the Gospel stories. It will be a celebration of both the birth of Jesus and the birth of your own soul. -from The Soul […]

    Lord,
    May this candle be a light for you to enlighten me in my difficulties.

    Through the prayers of Mary Virgin and Mother, I place in your care those I came to pray for, especially_____.
    I cannot stay long with you in this church. In leaving this candle, I wish to give to you something of myself.

  • • Do you feel lost, alone or bored in your marriage?
    • Are you frustrated, hurt or angry with your spouse?
    • Are you constantly fighting?
    • Have you thought about separation or divorce?
    • Does talking about it only make it worse?
    There are 4 Stages of Marriage: (1) Romance (2) Disillusionment
    (3) Misery, and (4) Awakening.
    Due to the high divorce rate many couples never make it to the 4th Stage of Awakening

    The program offers a strong community of support even after the program ends. These are couples whose marriage were saved because of this program. This is a donation based program. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to strengthen their marriage.
    Love is a decision, not a feeling.
