Check out this recent article with actor Mark Wahlberg, in which he describes the importance of his Catholic faith. Let’s pray we have more witnesses like his in Hollywood!
St. Maria Faustina Kowalska is remembered along with the Feast of Divine Mercy and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Learn more about here life here.
To celebrate her feast day, reflect on these beautiful quotes from her diary:
“Let Souls who are striving for perfection particularly adore My mercy, because the abundance of graces which I grant them flows from My mercy.”
“When a soul approaches Me with trust, I fill it with such an abundance of graces that it cannot contain them within itself, but radiates them to other souls.”
“I have found that the greatest power is hidden patience. I see that patience always leads to victory, although not immediately; but that victory will become manifest after many years.”
St. Faustina, help me to trust in Jesus as you did and to glorify His mercy every moment of my life. St. Faustina, pray for us!

“The Catholic faith doesn’t have to be complicated. Fr. Dwight Longenecker shows how it can be Pure and Simple. Starting with arguments for the existence of God, this book takes the reader step by step through the basics of the Catholic faith. Without using churchy language, difficult theological concepts or confusing arguments Dwight Longenecker explains not only the truths of the faith, but how to embark on the adventure of living the Catholic faith today. He uses plain illustrations from ordinary life, and explains the faith without complex footnotes or intimidating references. Catholicism Pure & Simple is perfect for high school students, confirmation candidates, members of RCIA classes and anyone seriously seeking God in the modern world.”

An inspirational e-mail message we received here at CCH – hope you are inspired by it as well:
“Dear Tom Peterson and Staff,
I had seven (7) Catholic friends that went astray that returned to the faith since I shared the website with them. Two had divorces pending when I gave them the website and both ended up canceling their divorces, renewing their matrimonial vows and now are very active in their respective parishes.
God bless you and the staff and all your families.
Love In Christ Jesus,
Please spread the word about the CatholicsComeHome.org site, you never know whose life you’ll touch, or transform!
