Our children come from the heart of God; He knew them in the womb and they knew God. Then at baptism, these little people become one with Christ. As I mothered nine children, I discovered that this sacrament is not simply a meaningless ritual but a real life, powerful encounter which actually transformed my children into spiritual people, albeit little people who could teach me about the nature of God and life in the Spirit.

When I first started to mother, I was determined to raise committed Catholic Christians and so I tried too hard. I had the mistaken notion that my kids were blank... Read More

I am appalled by commentators and writers who quickly denounce Pope Francis, often misinterpreting or twisting the meaning of his comments by taking them out of context. These critics are acting like the‘ the accuser of our brethren… which accused them before our God day and night’. [Revelation 12:7-12]Theyseem poised, ready to pounce on any hint of his supposed sin against tradition. Pope Francis’ detractors condemn him as a modernist heretic who is selling out to secular opinion by refusing to stand up for traditional Roman Catholic Church teachings. The pope’s critics seem determined to... Read More

After a grueling nursing shift,

Caroline sat alone, slumped, at the kitchen table.

Head bowed down, resting on her arms

with a glass of cold beer beside her.

Just like the other night and the night before that..

Alone

A traumatic childhood,

A husband dead after eight years of wedded torment,

Alone.

Shattered.

Too exhausted now to carry out any nefarious plans she had concocted to end her own life.

Depressed , empty, seemingly devoid of hope

At a dead-end of nothingness.

Yet, a tiny... Read More

However I believe that some of the best thinking is circular.

In fact, I love sending other people ideas or a stream of consciousness about the feminine experience of (kind-of) ending up where I began … but being different for having circled around an idea and making it my own.

Men might call this crazy thinking; I call it intuitive, creative and right-brained. it is perhaps a totally feminine experience.

WHAT IN GOD'S FRAME ARE WE DOING HERE? RIGINAL.

LOOK! Don't look if you're a religious puritan, zealot, or like me, with a constantly questioning cognitive cog that doesn't quite mesh sometimes, when for example, a friend of mine, Shaun Gibson, (hope he's a friend after this?) tosses up religious pertaining grist that causes a miss mesh however slight, of thought.

If you are a zealot, puritan, of that ilk and stick rigidly to the scriptures and do no harm and it makes your life fulfilled and meaningful then good luck to you and yours.

I know that God sent Jesus down or... Read More

Change.

I am slowly, changing..

We all want to change. However if we want to change simply to please someone else or to fit in to society out of our own vanity, that is a false wish for a change. I am not talking about the kind of exterior adaptation which involves switching masks or, changing clothes, learning new tricks. No, the kind of change I long for is deep-seated and involves shedding phony masks and removing costumes, not putting on more layers.

To make drastic changes in my life means I must first deal with my interior issues. It means turning the key, and opening... Read More
