The above photo and the below comment was posted yesterday on Facebook by a user named Mike Powers. As he was driving through Mississippi he was pulled over for speeding. Before the highway patrol officer walked away after handing Mike his ticket, Mike took the opportunity to commit a random act of kindness.
What would it be like if you spent a day wearing the uniform of another profession? Would you feel like a different person? Would people treat you differently?
One writer, Tom Chiarella, wanted to experience first-hand what it would be like to literally walk in someone else’s “professional shoes” for the day.
His job as a creative writing professor and author required no uniform—no visible sign of what he did for a living. And a part of him kind of wished that it did.
Born in Argentina, Pope Francis might feel comfortable in his tour for South America, where he plans to become a super-pope by delivering 21 speeches, meeting with political and religious leaders, visiting hospitals and schools, visiting friends, etc.
Over nine days he will visit nine countries: Ecuador, Bolivia, and Paraguay.
The USCCB has just announced the schedule of Pope Francis’ trip the United States from September 22 – 27, 2015. All times listed are Eastern Daylight Time.
Are you planning a trip to see the Holy Father while he’s in D.C., New York City, and Philadephia during the dates below? If so, please comment below and tell us about it!
I don’t remember when was the last time that I saw happy news about El Salvador. The country is infamous for its high rate of homicides—most of them committed by maras (street gangs). Finally… the smallest country in Central America has something big to be proud of: the beatification of Salvadoran Monsignor Romero on May 23, 2015.
Un mártir es una persona que sufre persecución y muerte por defender su fe. A pesar del miedo que enfrentan, se sienten consolados y hasta privilegiados en dar la vida por lo que creeen. Exactamente como Jesucristo lo hizo.
No hace falta remontarse a siglos pasados. El martirio y la Cristiandad sigue existente en nuestros días. Los protagonistas no son super héroes con super poderes, sino seres humanos con grandes virtudes de paciencia a toda prueba, una fe heroica, una esperanza triunfal, una valentía excepcional y un amor fervoroso a Dios.
