A Gathering of Domestic Churches- families of faith

You may have read about the initiative called Veritatis Splendor and I wanted to share some information about what it is.


Veritatis Splendor is an inspiration of several Catholic families who are moving to East Texas. They desire to establish a community of Catholics & anyone who is committed to Jesus Christ.

Urgent Call for Prayer and Action

A change of language

Friday, February 05, 2021

A friend sent this beautiful sunset (or sunrise) image recently and I thought it would be a good image to accompany the thoughts I share here. When a child is conceived in the womb of his/her mother God is saying yes to life, yes to a brand new person beginning to rise into the human journey.

Sometimes that life does not continue to live for various natural reasons but thankfully a... Read More
