Here is the September 25, 2016 message from Our Lady, Queen of Peace, given through Marija:
“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The ancient Chinese drink spurred on an English habit, faster ships, and a serious opium problem.The history of tea is a dark and stormy brew, a far cry from the peaceful images that may come to mind of ritual tea drinking in China and elaborate British afternoon teas. That’s the takeaway from a recent charmingly animated Read More…
From toddlers to teens, this is the best way to connect, bond, rebuild, and teach.Imagine a parent-child relationship based solely on authority with no spontaneity. It would completely eclipse the child’s self-confidence, joy, and sense of being seen and valued. And once the child is free from his parents’ authority, what becomes of that relationship? Read M […]
Why did a contemplative nun find inspiration in a religious warrior? It may be surprising to learn that Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, commonly known as the “Little Flower,” found constant inspiration not in a contemplative nun, but in the religious warrior Saint Joan of Arc. Why is that? Joan of Arc was not canonized until Read More…
Start by separating your actions from your value. Two studies done on kindergarten-aged children found out something surprising — that certain types of praise are as bad as criticism. Whether a child is told “You’re stupid,” or “You’re brilliant,” the result can “create vulnerability and a sense of contingent self-worth.” That phrase, “contingent self-worth, […]

Yes, when you carry on about nuns' habits, or what defines modesty, you really are objectifying women.When I first started exploring religious life I was only slightly aware of the raging inferno of contention within Catholic circles regarding the wearing of the religious habit. In my blissful ignorance, I visited all kinds of religious orders, Read Mor […]
The Free Listening movement is growing in response to a society that "needs to be listened to."People are going out onto street corners with signs that say “Free listening,” and they are listening to people who stop to talk.

Psalm 93 [Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition]
1 The Lord is the God to whom revenge belongeth: the God of revenge hath acted freely.
2 Lift up thyself, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 How long shall sinners, O Lord: how long shall sinners glory?
4 Shall they utter, and speak iniquity: shall all speak who work injustice?
5 Thy people, O Lord, they have brought low: and they have afflicted thy inheritance.
6 They have slain the widow and the stranger: and they have murdered the fatherless.
7 And they have said: The Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob understand.
8 Understand, ye senseless among the people: and, you fools, be wise at last.
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? or he that formed the eye, doth he not consider?
10 He that chastiseth nations, shall he not rebuke: he that teacheth man knowledge?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou shalt instruct, O Lord: and shalt teach him out of thy law.
13 That thou mayst give him rest from the evil days: till a pit be dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people: neither will he forsake his own inheritance.
15 Until justice be turned into judgment: and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.
16 Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the Lord had been my helper, my soul had almost dwelt in hell.
18 If I said: My foot is moved: thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
19 According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, thy comforts have given joy to my soul.
20 Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, who framest labour in commandment?
21 They will hunt after the soul of the just, and will condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my refuge: and my God the help of my hope.
23 And he will render them their iniquity: and in their malice he will destroy them: the Lord our God will destroy them.
