Helping those in need isn’t about you. The wealthy often think they know what is best for everyone they deem “poor”. They think because someone is poor, they must be doing something wrong as if there’s always, without exception, a correlation between not having enough money and making bad decisions.
The first thing I want my children to know is being a virgin does not dictate if they are a good person, a worthy person, or not.
What do taxes and the tree God planted have to do with each other? There is a saying I love to tell people, “Long before Zacchaeus needed it, God planted that tree.” Because God knew one day that small Zacchaeus needed to see the Son of God.
I don’t know designer clothes, or fancy cars, or big houses and definitely don’t feel as though I’d be comfortable with them. Rather, I want memories of the people I love, moments with my children when we laugh so hard we’re clutching our stomachs, and taking a moment to enjoy the beauty of simplicity.
I love being a Catholic mom. Catholic moms are some of the best in the bunch. We know our time on this earth is fleeting. We know our kids, our lives, aren’t going to be perfect all the time. Catholic moms know perfection is something to strive for. And it’s okay to laugh when it doesn’t happen.
