How Can We Together Conquer Evil with Good?

How Can We Together Conquer Evil with Good?

On important feasts of the Church or the congregation, our Mother General Sr. Anna Maria Parenzan writes a letter to all the sisters and I wanted to share this one with you all. This letter was written for the feast of St. Bernard August 20th, which is the Anniversary of the Foundation of the Pauline Family. It was on this day that the Society of St. Paul was founded (priests and brothers), with the Daughters of St. Paul being founded a year later in 1915. The other institutes of the Pauline Fam...

Discover a Pauline Way to Find Hope in the News

I was always impressed as a young sister that Blessed James Alberione was a great student of history. If I remember correctly, as a seminary professor he set himself to the task of reading a 20 volume history of the world. Even as a founder of a religious congregation the time he spent reading the newspaper was sacred.Lately I have become a fan of Flipboard, an app that collates articles by topic, source, or author through social sharing. As a user you have a fantastically rich and organized col...

Why Mary Is So Special To Catholics

Pokemon Go a Spiritual Teacher?

Pokemon Go a Spiritual Teacher?

With all this excitement about Pokémon Go, I decided I had to investigate myself. The novices had already done “due diligence” and checked out our retreat house where they are cooking this week to see if there were any wild Pokémon there. The Blessed Mother statue in the front of the retreat house is a Poké Stop. My first thought was to check out our Motherhouse grounds to see if we should be expecting extra visitors playing Pokémon Go, hold...

What Keeps You Up at Night?

What Keeps You Up at Night?

The greatest preoccupation in the heart of Blessed James Alberione at the beginning of the last century was how to get the Gospel into the hands of people, of families, and of hearts. When we look at the world today, this is the same question in every Pauline's heart. The world so needs Jesus and his mercy. How can we reach everyone with his love.Here are Blessed James Alberione's words:"Be conscious of your responsibility! Don't keep counting the number of readers, but the...
