sketch of Pope John Paul for front of medal

Touched by a Saint

In January 2001, I had the opportunity of greeting Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square. I knelt before him for a few seconds, grasped his hand, received his blessing. I walked off the platform still in a daze. Had I really been blessed by the Pope?

Saint Francis Knew the Thread that Held Us All Together

“Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.” -St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis saw the world for what it was and chose to be grounded in faith, being a beacon of light for God to pour His love into, and then St. Francis had the burning desire to share His love with the world. St. Francis is known as the patron saint of animals and of ecology. He called all creatures brothers and sisters, and he called the sun, “brother sun,” and the moon, “sister moon.” He understood the inner workings and incredible divine interconnection between all and saw the love of God as the thread that held us together in fine and divine balance...

Are the Angels Calling You?

Are the Angels Calling You?

A sign from heaven — that is what archangels are. They are the sign from heaven that God is real, prayer works, love heals, and miracles happen.

If you are reading this today, the archangels want to share a message with you. Is it Archangel Michael? If yes, then he has a message of protection for you. If he was here right now, he would tell you: “You are protected by the divine power of God, and I am here with my mighty blue sword and wings to shelter you from anything unlike love. I am here to surround you with incredible protection so that you can walk through life with your heart wide open and allow God to fill you up so big that you bubble over with love and supernatural joy. It’s okay to experience joy. It’s okay to dance amidst the rain, smile amidst the frowns, and believe in hope even in the middle of chaos and confusion. You are protected to serve.” 

Is it Archangel Raphael that’s calling out your name? If it is, he has a message of LOVE AND JOY! If he was here with you right now, he might say:  “I am here to remind you that you are whole, you are healed through the love of God, and you are meant to be loved fully, just as you are. Your holy spouse is waiting in the wings for you and at the right moment, will fall into your life with more love than you can ever imagine. Your faith will heal you, your faith will restore you, and your faith will renew you. You are on the right path.“
