  • Who will bury you?

    Aug 11, 2023

    As a Catholic, I will have recourse to a faith community I can call on for help, a parish with a funeral parlour where my parents can rest, and a priest to commend them as they leave the mortal world.

  • The gift of acceptance

  • A woman after God’s own heart

    Mar 11, 2022

    In these times, there is so much literature and self-help books marketed to women. If a woman has an issue, there are at least 10 books to help her with it.
