Dear friends in Christ,
After months of waiting, the Summer has arrived. Many have longed for these warm weeks. They have planned holidays, travelling, camping, recreational activities, home repairs, and endless other plans.
While the Lord God has created the Summer months for our enjoyment, Jesus reminds us that we must bear fruit in all seasons. There is no taking a break from our living faith in Christ. Jesus said, "I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing." [John 15: 5]
When planning your Summer holidays, strive to include your religious obligations, attending Holy Mass on Sunday and Holy Days, saying grace before and after meals, saying your morning and bedtime prayers, and maintaining any other regular devotions you may have.
During the past month, I added a new section to the website. It is called "Spiritual Reflections." You will find information below regarding this new addition. I hope you enjoy this work that I have authored for you.
I pray that all of you shall have an awesome Summer, obtaining from God all the graces that you seek for your spiritual and secular needs. May the Blessed Virgin Mary intercede before Jesus for all your needs.
In the love of Jesus and Mary,

At the request of many, I started a new section to the website during the past month. You can now pick a subject and reflect upon it for a period of time. A half hour would be a suitable time to do a spiritual reflection during which time you answer the questions related to the topic of your choice. This month's new topics are: Be strong and courageous. Being a Catholic. Blessed are the pure of heart. [Matthew 5:8] Blessed are those who mourn. [Matthew 5:4] Give and it will be given to you. [Luke 7:38] God shows no partiality. [Acts 10:34] I know your works. [Revelation 3:15] My brothers and sisters. [Matthew 12:49-50] Provide for relatives. [1 Timothy 5:8] See the Kingdom of God. [John 3:3] The Father's Name. [John 17:11-12] The greatest of these is Love. [1 Corinthians 13:13] The Lord is my Shepherd. [Psalm 23:1] The Serpent in the Garden. [Genesis 3:1] You may view them at: http://www.catholicdoors.com/reflections/index.htm____________________________
