So much great stuff in today’s collection as we head into the weekend, including this very fun vessel for summer drinks! We also have a great article by Tommy Tighe about loving our priests better, a video from Bishop Barron’s latest project about Flannery O’Connor, and great news about a new Church dedicated to Our Lady — Our Lady of Arabia — in the spiritual desert of Bahrain.
Today’s collection includes Elizabeth Scalia’s deep wisdom on social media chaos, noting that it is often a soul’s simple search for love, with God as the only antidote. We also have an article on the important questions to ask before buying a home, and the gorgeous National Geographic travel photo winners. Also Emily Stimpson Chapman talks about her adoption process and the simultaneous joy and tragedy of adopting someone else’s child (If you could offer a prayer for them, please do!).
We are featuring two articles in today’s collection about how to recognize the difference between God’s voice and Satan’s voice in discernment - incredibly valuable wisdom. There is also a fun look at how sage, rosemary, and mint were used medicinally during the Dark Ages and in what ways they’re still useful today. And not to be overlooked is a floral blog we just discovered, Tulipina, featuring a short video of a visually stunning flower demonstration held in Bologna, Italy. Enjoy!
Today’s collection includes a thoughtful piece about the disappearing middle child given the prevalence of two-child families, an article with Chesterton’s 3 signs that your friends might convert to Catholicism, and lattice-pie-crust-making 101 for those of us who fear pie crust (ahem). And much, much more!
