A prayer for battle

Just a few months before our wedding, my husband and I attended a retreat for engaged Catholic couples. On so many levels, it was very impactful and really helped prepare us for the vocation of marriage. The amazing priest at this retreat painted a pretty powerful image in our minds – one that we have not forgotten during our life together.

More people need to respect stay-at-home moms

I am a stay-at-home mom and I feel as if my vocation is not respected. Why don’t people see being a mother as a valuable career?

Maternity is not a career, aptitude or inclination. Maternity is a gift and a call from God. Through maternity and paternity, God shares with us his creative power. Psalm 139:13 states, “You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb.” Parents participate with God in renewing humankind. Thus being a mother and being a father is a sacred action of life and love throughout their children’s life.
