The first apostolate I would like to highlight for aiding my faith journey is EWTN. 

Today, there was a blizzard in my part of the country, and we didn't want to risk driving into town for mass.  So, we watched mass on EWTN.  Although we were not able to partake in the physical Eucharist, we were able to receive Jesus spiritually into our hearts in a special way because of "Mother Angelica's TV station". 

I only started watching EWTN programs within the past couple years or so, but I am thoroughly impressed.  We Catholic Christians are completely blessed by this station.  I love watching Father John Corapi's programs, and my son and I have started watching some of the kids' programs in the afternoons sometimes.  I have caught the sung version of the Rosary prayer once before, which I found quite refreshing, because it has a different cadence.

There is so much more to explore, too.

Thank you, EWTN!

An Assignment

Happy Advent!

I have been MIA from this blog for many months now.  It's because my family finally did have to make another move.  Now that we are all settled in, I have more time on my hands.

One website that I have been thoroughly enjoying this Advent is Holy Heroes.  They have this amazing activity called "Advent Adventure" right now, and my son (4 years) and I look forward to it every day.  He's probably a little young to understand all of the information, but I am not.  I don't think that I was properly catechized when I was growing up, because I don't remember learning some of the things the Holy Heroes kids are teaching.  That's okay.  Better late than never.  Anyway, I feel very indebted to Holy Heroes for helping to increase my knowledge and love for Catholicism.  I hope all Catholics hear about their work.

I also feel indebted to several other websites and apostolates for educating me in my/our faith.  Because of this, I think I'm going to give myself an assignment.  I'm going to try to highlight one website, blog, podcast, etc. every week that I feel blessed to have come across.  I know this is not going to be difficult, because there are so many.  I can't wait--I already have a queue forming in my head!
