“Do not fear death of the body nor the torments, little brother. Calmly receive the strike of the sword. The God who has seen fit to call us to such a great grace will give us the necessary strength to endure the sufferings that await us.”
By Sr. Anna Riordan, SHM
It is strange how there are certain people you know for years, but you never experience a special connection with them. There are others you meet just once, and yet you feel a certain closeness to them as brothers in the faith. This is because the logic is different in the spiritual world; things work with a Divine logic.

It has become even more frequent to go into a school gym and see students in the lotus flower position, or lying on a tatami mat with their eyes closed and with silly smiles on their faces practicing mindfulness.
During the last years, hundreds of manuals concerning this have been published and conferences, retreats, and talks about mindfulness have multiplied, presenting it as a compliment to prayer or as a way of dealing with anxiety or stress.
Unfortunately, this has extended even to the Church and we can find these techniques practiced in retreat houses and even taught as school subjects.
"I've always believed in the hidden power that exists in the heart of every young person. For that reason, even though he is inexperienced and young, what matters is that he is enthusiastic and desires to do something great for God..."

Pope Francis authorized the promulgation decree recognizing the heroic virtues of the servant of God, Tomás Morales, priest of the Society of Jesus and found of the secular institue "The Crusaders of St. Mary" and the association of families "Home of St. Mary."
During the first years of the 80s, in 1984, we, a group of teenagers and young people, H.M.Y. (Home of the Mother of the Youth) members, carried out our apostolic activity in a small village in the province of Toledo, Spain, called Mocejón. After having heard Fr. Rafael on several occasions speak about how great it would be for the Home to have its own magazine, we proposed the idea of beginning the magazine design with the H.M.Y. group in Mocejón. He thought it was a good idea and so we got to work.

In previous issues, we spoke about Jeanne, more commonly known as Jeannot: Mamie’s only sister who, upon joining the Sisters of Charity, took the name of Sr. Helena. As far as their character goes, Mamie and Jeannot were as different as night and day. The first was very shy, the second extremely outgoing, but both incredibly generous and with a great capacity to give of themselves.

In his encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia, St. John Paul II said,
“The worship of the Eucharist outside of the Mass is of inestimable value for the life of the Church…
It is pleasant to spend time with Him, to lie close to His breast like the Beloved Disciple and to feel the infinite love present in His heart…
How can we not feel a renewed need to spend time in spiritual converse, in silent adoration, in heartfelt love before Christ present in the Most Holy Sacrament?”
