Phoenix’s Super Bowl Nuns (554)

Sister Linda Campbell has a favorite?

For the second time in seven years, Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery is hosting devout football fans attending Sunday’s big game.


PHOENIX — For the tens of thousands of fans migrating to southern Arizona for Sunday’s Super Bowl, finding a place to stay can be one of the hardest parts of the weekend.

But with hotel prices ranging from $250 to over $2,000 a night in Glendale, Ariz., and neighboring Phoenix, a local monastery may be the most economical — and holy — option.

For the second time in seven years, Phoenix’s Our Lady of Guadalupe Benedictine Monastery is opening its doors to the public, offering fans a peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle of the downtown...READ MORE

A ninth-grade term paper launched Courtney McEachon’s pro-life message.

“My interest in the abortion question began when I wrote a term paper for ninth-grade biology on stem-cell research,” recalled the 21-year-old Yale University senior. “Even growing up in the Catholic Church and attending Catholic school had not exposed me to this issue until then. After that paper, the nagging began: If the product of conception really was a baby, and if a baby really was a person with intrinsic moral value, then abortion is murder, and worse than the injustice itself was perhaps the silence surrounding it. Since then, I’ve been passionate about the pro-life movement.”

McEachon is the former president...READ MORE

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

– Wikipedia

Religious sisters have bestowed an incredible legacy on countless children who have attended Catholic schools in the United States.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born saint and foundress of the first American religious community for women, established the first U.S. parish school, paving the way for Catholic education in America.

Congregations often remain unsung as they go about their mission. For Catholic Schools Week, the Register highlights three communities that work hard to teach the faith and academics to today’s students.

Lessons From a Computer Analyst-Turned-Catholic School Teacher (931)

“Live the Gospel every day. You may be the only Gospel that another person encounters that day.” — My father, who would often say this at the dinner table.

It has been eight years since I left a lucrative career as a computer and business consultant to start teaching at a Catholic high school. I left my former career for essentially two reasons: While I enjoyed what I did, there was only so much satisfaction to be gained from making companies more profitable, and, as a product of Catholic education, I believed God was calling me to do more with my talents.

As I started my career in teaching, one of my goals was to take some of the best business practices I knew and implement them in my...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — In his homily on Friday, Pope Francis encouraged Christians to remember the first time they felt the love of God and warned that those who forget this moment risk becoming lukewarm and losing salvation.

“Lukewarm Christians: they’re there, immobile. Yes, they’re Christians, but they’ve lost the memory of that first love. And they’ve also lost their enthusiasm,” the Pope told Mass attendees Jan. 30.

“In addition, they’ve lost their patience to tolerate life’s problems with the spirit of Jesus’ love, to tolerate and to bear difficulties on their shoulders. … Lukewarm Christians, poor things, they’re in grave danger,” he said.

Pope Francis centered his reflection on the day’s...READ MORE
