Pray as You Can, Not As You Can’t

The litany of humility is a powerful prayer. You know you should pray it but you don’t have the desire to. What should you do?

Today Fr. Mike encourages and challenges us to ask God to give us the grace to pray those prayers that are more difficult to pray. “Take, Lord receive, all my liberties!”

Find Peace and Clarity When Making Decisions

Pray, Decide, and Don’t Worry equips Catholics with a clear five-step discernment process so that they can be at peace with their decision knowing they have truly discerned God’s will.
