    As millennial nun, I would like to respond to the article “Behold, the Millennial Nuns” published in Huffington Post by Eve Fairbanks. The millennial generation is the generation born between 1990 and 2010. Apparently, abundant studies, polls, and statistics prove that we stand out for our selfishness and depression. Fairbanks is a young American journalist who lives in South Africa. She states that change fascinates her. In her article, she investigates an unexpected change in American society: young women are becoming nuns in a much higher percentage than just ten years ago. She frames this change in society within the broader context of a shift towards an attitude of openness towards God and towards traditional values in the youth.

  • Volunteers run benefit flea-market stand


    Several years have passed since a group of ladies started volunteering to make pillows, dedicating their time and talent to the production of beautiful handmade objects that would be sold in the various flea markets held in their town. Rain or shine, no matter how much they sell, no matter how tired they are – no matter what, they are there.

    Ever since I discovered, when I was 17 years old, that I had a Mother in heaven and how powerful she was, I haven’t stopped asking for things. I first asked for Rosa, a girl in my town, Baena. Later, for Encarnita in Cordoba, while I was doing military service in the barracks of immediate intervention in Lepanto. Finally, for Maria José, my wife. Later, for my children that didn’t come once we got married.

    Man is a unique being in the universe. In the Creed, we profess that God is Creator of everything “visible and invisible.” In a way, man appears as a synthesis of these two dimensions: he is composed of a spiritual soul and a material body.

    I received a phone call notifying me that Javier, Ana’s 5-monthold had just passed away. We immediately went to see how she was.

    I didn’t know what to expect...


    By Sr. Beatriz Liaño, S.H.M.

    A few years back, I was confronted with a very complicated situation. In the parish where I collaborated, there was a woman who had a certain leadership role that began the process of trying to have a baby by using assisted reproduction technology (ART). She was a well-known person and her decision created a lot of confusion in the parish community.

  • Chaldean Archbishop of Erbil - Iraq


    In the Footsteps of the Nazarene: The People of the Cross


    Erbil is the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, where the Kurdistan Regional Government is based. It has become the Christian capital of Iraq since the Islamic State began taking the lives of Christians or forcing them to flee their homes in Mosul and Qaraqosh, two cities of ancient Christian tradition.

    The Iraqi government, the Iraqi army with Peshmerga (the Kurdish armed forces), along with the coalition, are fighting against DAESH to stop its advances and reclaim certain cities.

    Truth & Freedom

    By Sr. Miriam Loveland, SHM

    At a given moment, Jesus looked at the Jews who began to believe in Him and said to them, “…you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” (Jn 8:32). Upon hearing that phrase, many were indignant and began to dispute with Him saying that they had never been slaves of anyone. In other words, they didn’t need to be set free. Jesus was pointing out a much deeper slavery than the physical one, and a much more dangerous one. Nowadays, there is constant talk about freedom and about reclaiming it where it isn’t found. It would not be easy to find someone who does not desire it, and yet there are very few who really reach it. They don’t obtain it because they’ve lost sight of the intrinsic connection that freedom has with the truth. Without the truth, you cannot live in freedom, because it would mean living in a false, inconsistent, and unreal world.

  • Edith Stein


    By Sr. Emma Haynes S.H.M.

    “Full of love, you sink your gaze into mine. And bend your ear to my quiet words. And deeply fill my heart with peace. Your body mysteriously permeates mine. And your soul unites with mine: I am no longer what once I was.You come and go, but the seed That you sowed for future glory, remains behind.”

    A gift for Spain and the whole world

    By Clara Martínez Gomariz, LHM

    Spain has always been a land favored by the Sacred Heart. Numerous apparitions to different Spaniards, some of which occurred even before the previously mentioned apparitions in Paray, are proof of this reality. In fact, the Jesuit, José Eugenio de Uriarte, in the book, The Beginnings of the Kingdom of the Heart of Jesus, published in 1880, lists a series of Spaniards who received inspirations about this devotion, demonstrating the long historical tradition of the Sacred Heart in this country. Among these are found: Sancha de Carrillo, Lady Ana Ponce de León, Venerable Mary of Jesus of Ágreda and Venerable Josefa of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Blessed María Ángela Astorch, and St. Michael of the Saints, just to mention a few.

    A gift for Spain and the Whole World

    By Clara Martínez Gomariz, LHM

    We continue to go through the historical evolution of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, travelling to France during the seventeenth century: the so-called “great century of souls” because of the incredible development it underwent during that time. On a religious level, the growth became evident in several ways, such as the founding of new congregations led by clergy, such as Pierre de Bérulle, St. Vincent de Paul and St. Francis de Sales. St. Francis de Sales started the Visitation Order, directing the religious sisters’ formation towards love of the Word Incarnate, a perfect seed which made the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus grow throughout the world.

    Each one of the seven books in the Harry Potter series that have been published, have been accompanied on the one hand, by huge editorial success and, on the other, polemics and conflicting views, even within the Catholic Church. Indeed, the division is irreconcilable between those who view Joanne Rowling’s novels to be inoffensive and fantasy adventures of a sorcerer’s apprentice, and those who consider that serious dangers can stem from its reading.

  • Amsterdam, Holland, 1345


    By Fr. Rafael Alonso Reymundo

    A Lay Member of the Home in Holland wrote us, saying,“This evening we had a silent procession. First, we had Mass with Cardinal Eijk and all the bishops. This procession takes on special significance in Amsterdam, as it is a city of so many sins. And yet, the Lord shows us His great Love in the Eucharist.

    2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady in Fatima (Portugal). Amidst the tumultuous time of World War II and the Russian Revolution, God sent Our Blessed Mother to the world so she could remind her children to return to God before it would be too late. In Him alone would they find peace and hope. God would reign in the world through the triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart. The “Lady dressed in white” entrusts this important message to the three humble shepherd children: Lucia, age 10, and her cousins Francisco, age 9, and Jacinta, age 7. These children will prove to be faithful to their mission. “Are you willing to offer yourselves to God to bear all the sufferings which He wants to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and for the conversion of sinners?” the Lady asked them in the first apparition. “Yes, we are,” they responded with confidence.

    John’s Gospel practically comes to a close with the well-known question that the Lord asks Peter: “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” (Jn 21:16). Peter, confused, confesses that yes, he does love Him, although his love is very poor. The Lord then announces to him with veiled words the violent death that he would endure for love of Him. Indeed, it is he, Peter, the same one that once denied Him three times, swearing that he did not even know Him. He, the fisherman from Galilee, would die one day on the cross for love of his crucified teacher. The Lord ends the conversation by saying, “Follow me.”

    “God’s timing is perfect.” This is the way Sarita summarized the day of her First Holy Communion.

    Sarita is a 45-year-old woman who has been bedridden for years due to being both blind and paralyzed. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis ten years ago. Her husband chose not to accompany her in her illness and abandoned her, leaving her to care for herself and their two sons, aged four and seven at the time. Her sons have lovingly taken care of her over the course of the years as they have witnessed the progress of their mother’s illness. She was first left bedridden with complete paralysis in her legs and partial paralysis in her arms, and later she lost her sight as well. The boys still go to school and study, but they must also take care of cleaning, cooking, washing the clothes, and attending to their mother.
