      Pope Francis prays to empty Vatican, St. Peter's Square

      As Easter approaches , images from an empty St. Peter's Square during a prayer Friday paint a stark portrait of the Vatican, which, along with surrounding Italy, has been afflicted by coronavirus. During the Urbi and Orbi prayer, Pope Francis stood underneath a canopy as he spoke to an empty St. Peter's Square. The Pope likened the coronavirus pandemic to an "unexpected, turbulent storm" that brings us on "the same boat."

    2. DIOCESE OF ORANGE RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS | OC Catholic

      As news surrounding coronavirus continues to emerge, Catholics across Orange County are asked to take necessary precautions to stop the spread of this virus. We acknowledge the importance of washing of our hands, “social distancing” and “flattening the curve” to restrict its spread.

      The mission of the Church is the salvation of souls. We consider it essential that churches remain open for worship for the care of souls, just as hospitals remain open for care of the body. While other parish-related gatherings are being canceled, during this time of crisis the Church is called to provide hope and comfort.

      The public’s health and safety are paramount to the Diocese of Orange. We are monitoring the health situation and will make changes as needed.

      Ash Wednesday: A changing tradition

      Are you ready to give up caffeine for 40 days? What about your social media accounts? While giving up those things may seem hard for you, Christians long ago used to give up a whole lot more.

      Ash Wednesday is today. It marks the first day of Lent in Western churches. The ashes symbolize penance and the dust from which God made people.
      When priests mark Christian's forehead with the ashes they often say, 'Repent and believe in the Gospel,' or 'Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.'

      How to Pray the Psalms

      Share on Facebook Christian history certainly supports a robust use of the Psalms in our worship. In the first few centuries after Jesus, the Psalms generated more commentaries than any other biblical book. By the fourth century, at the latest, the book of Psalms (the Psalter) was being used regularly for Christians to sing. For Benedictine monks, the Rule of Saint Benedict (c. 530) stipulated that all 150 Psalms should be sung each week! We have come a long way from this focus on the Psalms.

      Dissatisfaction

      What are you dissatisfied with in your life?

      Dissatisfaction is Gods way of pointing out an area of our life that we are passionate about and needs some work.  We need to think about it and clearly understand our dissatisfaction, where it comes from WHY we are dissatisfied, and then give careful thought and consideration on how we are going to respond to our feeling of dissatisfaction.  The challenge is to understand it and develop a plan to respond to it instead of simply REACTING to it.

      I'm an end-of-life educator. Here's what I've learned about death.,

      It’s not the kind of career you dream about as a kid. It’s not glamorous like an astronaut or a rock star, and it’s not easy to explain when someone asks what you do for a living. If you’re self-employed like I am, there’s no 401(k) or vacation pay, and you work seven days a week. But the good news is that there’s no glass ceiling, and no age discrimination (maturity is an asset).

      Americans' belief in God: Key findings | Pew Research Center

      In recent years, the share of American adults who do not affiliate with a religious group has risen dramatically. In spite of this trend, the overwhelming majority of Americans, including a majority of the religiously unaffiliated – those who describe themselves, religiously, as atheists, agnostics or “nothing in particular” – say they believe in God or a higher power, according a new Pew Research Center survey conducted in December of 2017. At the same time, only a slim majority of Americans now believe in the God of the Bible and roughly one-in-ten U.S. adults don’t believe in any higher power or spiritual force.

      Love it: Practicing the art of appreciation

      We can train our brains to look for the positive, even in stressful situations. Start by identifying things that fill you with anger, bitterness, envy or judgment. Then find comparative things in your own life that bring you joy or fill you with pride and consider how you have been blessed. It may take a few tries, but even if you fail at first, don’t give up. Say thank you for the small things, and mean it.

      Mission Viejo's St. Kilian Catholic Church Celebrates 50 Years | Mission Viejo, CA Patch

      The year was 1970. Fewer than 100 parishioners gathered at a local high school to celebrate mass. Donna Finnegan was one of the first to gather at Mission Viejo High School. She remembers. It was her very first mass.

      Now, in 2019, nearly 50 years later, she recalled the changes as the church has bloomed to 1,200 seats.

      'It's been amazing to watch the growth and change at St. Kilian over the past 50 years,' she said. 'I'm so proud to be part of this community of caring, generous, and faithful people.'
