Surrounded by relics of so many married saints and blesseds during our marriage retreat this weekend!  Thankful to pray before the relics of Saints Joachim & Anne; Zelie & Louis Martin; the cloak of Joseph & the veil of the Blessed Virgin Mary; and Blessed Josef & Victoria Ulma and their 7 children. It’s awesome being Catholic and having so many heroic witnesses and saints praying for us, cheering for us in our vocations—especially married saints who experienced the joys, struggles, stresses, and lack of sleep that we experience as parents and husbands and wives today. All married saints and blesseds, pray for us!Image attachment

Beth and I lead a marriage retreat here in Birmingham, Alabama this weekend, reflecting on how God meets us not just in the Sacraments, the Bible and prayer, but also in the daily difficulties, stresses, disappointments, and hurts of ordinary marriage and family life. We talked on how those challenges in our marriages are not just problems to be solved but places to encounter God at a deeper level in our poverty…how in the midst of those trials, God is inviting us to experience a deeper level of healing, conversion, unity and love. 
Please pray for the many couples from all over the South who came to enrich their marriages in these ways, including several FOCUS missionaries and alumni. Please also pray for the Sister Servants of the Eternal Word who host wonderful retreats throughout the year here at their Casa Santa Maria retreat house just down the road from EWTN.Image attachmentImage attachment+1Image attachment

A blessing to have Mass in the same Catacombs where Pope St. Sixtus II was captured a d beheaded while celebrating Mass  in the 3rd century persecution of Christians under the Emperor Valerian. Our chaplain, Fr. Justin, chose for his confirmation saint St. Sixtus and was able to celebrate Mass for us in the same catacombs where his patron was martyred. St. Sixtus, pray for us!Image attachment

Edward, Ru in Rome?

Thank you Dr Sri and Fr Justin.

Just wow!

The bones and relics of the Apostles Phillip and James are on display in Rome for veneration for their feast today!  Our pilgrimage groups normally get to go to the tomb of these two apostles, but it was a special opportunity for us this week to pray before their very bones and relics here at the beautiful Church of the 12 Apostles in Rome. Saints Philip and James, pray for us!Image attachmentImage attachment+2Image attachment
