Here are this week’s must-reads:

+ “When you invoke St. Joseph, you don’t have to say much. Say, ‘If you were in my place, St. Joseph, what would you do? Well, pray for this on my behalf.'” — St. Andre Bessette // Learn more about him and his devotion to St. Joseph here. It’s a great story that reminds us of the importance of being faithful to our vocations and what’s in front of us, and how God works through that.

+ “Everyone in this room is carrying the cross, and most of the time it’s hidden and we don’t perceive it in one another. But there is no suffering that any one of us experiences that Jesus is not living, feeling and suffering with us. Your suffering has meaning and it’s not for nothing. And God’s plan are at work 100% of the time. Jesus defeated death and rose that we might hold out in hope — that there’s a same resurrection that will take place in our lives as well.” — Sr. Mary Grace

+ I have a little corner in our kitchen with just a few small faith-filled reminders. Things that encourage me to pray in that moment, to look up, to take heart & have hope. And I think it makes a difference — to have a spot like this that I see frequently throughout the day. That’s one reason why I love to share about Catholic home decor. It’s not all about beauty and what it looks like — it’s more about the impact it has on your heart and soul throughout the day.

“Know that even when you are in the kitchen, our Lord moves amidst the pots and pans.” – St. Teresa of Avila

+ “The vast majority of salvation history is lived in the mundane.” — Dr. Hahn

+ “Before the water turned into wine, someone had to do the ordinary, tiresome task of filling the water pots. We want the new wine to just appear, but Jesus calls us to fill the jars first. In short, God often wants us to participate in our own transformation.” – Rich Villodas

+ “Our heavenly Father was the first to celebrate. He was the first one to document the birthday of Jesus. And long before that, He was encouraging His people to feast together as a way of remembering His goodness and His willingness to walk with us every day in blessing.” — Sally Clarkson

+ “I pray for an increase of Epiphanies in the world. Not simply a brief “oh nice” moment, then return to our regular schedule. I pray for the culmination of many realizations of the Truth of Jesus Christ’s love for us, that results in a full shift in perspective. So much so that we are forever changed. That we don’t go back to the way we once came like the wise men that return home on a different route.” — Maria Diazz
