This week’s notable reads:

1. “Jesus was the son of a carpenter. All through his childhood, he heard the echo of the hammer on the nails. But he also knew what it was to be surrounded by the love of his father. Those hours in the workshop prepared him for Calvary in more ways than one.” – Meg Hunter-Kilmer

2. “Bring your sorrows, insecurities, and cares to the One who made you good and beautiful, who bled and died on a Cross for you – and would do it again if you were the only one on earth.” – Mary Thissen

3. The Lord is Close to the Brokenhearted

4.  “Studies have been published in medical journals showing that modern NFP methods are five times more effective than condoms and as effective as the contraceptive pill. In addition, electronic devices and applications for Smartphones have been developed and help marriages to more easily interpret the cyclical changes of fertility in combination with their own graphs and observations. This is the reality of many couples and us natural family planning educators…” – Jokin de Irala MD MPH PhD

5. “My Prayer to Find A Husband (And How it Came True!)”

6. “What God really asks me to do is to rend my heart. He wants me to lean into the fissures deep within myself and to let Him into those most secret places. As I remember Jesus’ wounds throughout this season, I’m offered the gift to share my wounds back as well.” – Brigid Hogan for Blessed is She

7.  “Upon the cross, “he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears.” He let the grain of wheat fall to the ground to die, in order that it would no longer remain merely a grain of wheat but become something more – a new life, a glorified, resurrected life. As Lent comes to a close, ask the Lord to give you a heart like His, one that selflessly “produces much fruit.” Be transformed. There alone is found the glory of eternal life.” – Shawn Reeves

8. Five Signs You Need Marriage Counseling… Even if Your Marriage Isn’t in Crisis

10. “Most sacred, most loving Heart of Jesus, You are concealed in the Holy Eucharist, and You beat for us still. Now as then You say, “With desire I have desired.” I worship You with all my best love and awe, with fervent affection, with my most subdued, most resolved will. For a while You take up Your abode within me. O make my heart beat with Your Heart! Purify it of all that is earthly, all that is proud and sensual, all that is hard and cruel, of all perversity, of all disorder, of all deadness. So fill it with You, that neither the events of the day, nor the circumstances of the time, may have the power to ruffle it; but that in Your love and Your fear, it may have peace. Amen.” – Fr. Thomas Quinn

10. “Where are you going? To Jesus or to the sadness of your sins? The Lord is waiting for you.” – Padre Pio
