t was an image in a documentary film that turned Constantin’s life completely around in the early 1990’s. She was a young journalist, completely focused on establishing her career and partying with friends when an image of Mother Teresa holding a starving person flashed across the t.v. screen with the words, “God didn’t do this; we do it because we do not share what we have”. Suddenly tears streamed down Constantin’s face. The very next day she found herself washing dishes in a soup kitchen run by Mother Teresa’s nuns in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was one photo of Mother Teresa on t.v. which... Read More
When we refuse to let go of control, we are like a queen at the centre of our universe where everything depends on us.
Trust me, it is more about our attitude than the real activities we perform. I am the mother of nine, so I was extremely busy but when my attitude changed, a big burden lifted off my shoulders, even though my body was just as busy.
Clearly, I am living in a fantasy when I see myself as the centre of the universe, viewing everything as it circles around me. Yet, this is exactly how most of us operate. My whole psychological makeup screams that I am the centre of... Read More

Fall is officially here.
I love the season, but the arrival of fall always leaves me feeling a bit wistful as I contemplate the ambitious summer plans I had back in May that never materialized over the subsequent months, and thinking ahead to hiding myself away during the brutal winter months and the dreaded holiday season. I am still wearing shorts and flip flops, but there are already holiday decorations being peddled in stores!
I will not be discouraged; I refuse to steal myself away into a solipsistic retreat until the end of March when the first tulips start budding in the... Read More
Pope Francis captured media’s attention with his visit to Cuba and the United States this week. So, a young woman currently working as a journalist in New York City, who is part of Columbia University’s M.S. program, interviewed me over the phone on Monday about Pope Francis’ announcement regarding abortion forgiveness for women.
My positive reaction to the pope’s decision shocked this journalist at first.
It seems almost everyone she has interviewed so far were, to use her words, “judgmental” and against Pope Francis’s decision. Thus, it was my turn to be shocked. In my opinion,... Read More

As a mother of a large family, struggling to wash, dry, and fold three or four loads of laundry every day, I secretly wondered if there was an obscure saint, with little to do, who could fill in as my patron saint of missing socks. Little did I know, God was using the dilemma of unpaired socks to purify me because I was trying too hard to be the perfect mother and housekeeper. This earnest striving was a weakness, not a virtue because my diligence was rooted in insecurity, unbelief but most of all in pride. Again and again, as I read spiritual material, God tried to teach me that true Christianity... Read More
