Pope: No Revenge, Pray for Those Who Wrong You
2017-02-20 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Sunday afternoon made a visit to the parish of Maria Josefa of the Heart of Jesus in the suburbs of Rome. During Mass, he stressed, that the path to holiness was forgiveness and prayer and that revenge and resentment has no place in the Christian life.
The Pope celebrated Mass telling the congregation present, never to go down the road of revenge or resentment. Instead, he said, “pray for those who want to do evil: this prevents wars and brings peace.” It is also, the Pope added, the “Christian path to holiness.” Read more here.

First out of the gate is the Men’s Conference, featuring speaker Trent Horn, which is set for March 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Marshall School in Duluth. Horn is a convert to the Catholic faith with a degree in theology from Franciscan University. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy from Holy Apostles College and is a regular guest on the radio program Catholic Answers Live, a lecturer and author of two books.Read More

Thirty-plus years ago my husband and I made the decision to plant our roots in northern Minnesota. We knew that came with some benefits, but this decision also came with some challenges. My husband was mostly raised in the Green Bay area, and I grew up outside Chicago. At that time, the closest family member was eight hours away with a difficult drive at best. Thankfully the highways have improved since then.
The disadvantages of living so far away from our extended family meant that a great effort was needed to maintain our family ties and connect our children with their relatives. It was tough, at times, to hear about the parties or special events that other family members attended nearby, while distance prevented us from participating. Nieces and nephews were born, and it would sometimes be months and too often years before we met them in person.Read More
