A Prayer of Praise to the Holy Trinity

Today, my God, I don’t ask you for anything.  I just want to be with You and adore You in Your majesty.

God, You are beautiful in creation.

Your design is amazing.  From the intricate details of the tiniest bug to the great design of the entire universe, Your plan is incredible.

How did you think of so many beautiful things to fill such a blank canvas?  You are infinitely creative.

I am in awe of the greenness of every blade of grass in the spring and summer.  The irresistible crunch of every fallen leaf in the autumn.  The cold smooth hardness of ice in the winter.

Your beauty is in each sunset.  A different display of the warmth of Your love every day.

Your cool, calm reassurance is in each quiet gray day, while rain patters soothingly in a continuous drip on my windowsill.

You are the Artist.  Your hand swirls each color in the sunset, squeezes the drips out of the spongy clouds in the sky, balances each drop of dew on every delicate petal.

You are there.

I praise You, God the Father, in creation.


Father, You’re the Artist.  Your hand swirls each color in the sunset.  I praise You in creation.  Tweet this.


God, You are incredible in the Holy Eucharist.

You gave Your whole self to me on the Cross: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.  You sacrificed Yourself to save me from my sins.

You give me the same gift of Yourself: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, to be my nourishing food in the Holy Eucharist.  You sacrifice Yourself to become a part of me.  You take me up to become a part of You.

You hold nothing back.  Your love is amazing.

You wait for me in the Tabernacle, day and night.  You long for me.  Help me long for You.

I praise You, God the Son, in the Eucharist.


Jesus, You hold nothing back.  Your love is amazing.  I praise You in the Eucharist.  Tweet this.


God, You are amazing in Your Presence within me.

You give me life.

You created me in Your image and likeness.  You give me the ability of rational thought like You.  You give me the ability to love like You.  You give me a deep longing for relationships with those around me and ultimately with You.

You infuse faith, hope and love within me.

You plant your gifts in my soul: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord.  You cultivate these gifts.  You foster them and help them grow.

You bring me to live in grace, in the Spirit.  You live within me.

I praise You, God the Holy Spirit, in Your indwelling within me.


Holy Spirit, You bring me to life in grace.  You live within me.  I praise You in Your indwelling.  Tweet this.


God, You are Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

You are the Blessed Trinity.

Your goodness, beauty and love surround me.

I praise You for who You are.  I praise You for what You do.  I praise You for all You have given me.

With all my strength, I offer You the gift of praise.  Amen.

Love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength

A modern examination of conscience.  (But not too modern… we’re loyal to the teachings of the Catholic Church here!)

This month we round up our focus on the three theological virtues with a challenge in charity.  Jesus shows us the importance of charity when He sums up the ten commandments with only two commandments of love.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  [And] you shall love your neighbor as yourself. Mark 12:30-31

This is the definition and essence of charity Continue reading “Love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength”

Run so as to Win: A Spiritual Fitness Program

A plan to help you integrate your faith into your daily life.

Run so as to win.  1 Cor 9:24

Pinterest Fails is one of my favorite Google searches.  So. Funny.

We glorify failure all over the internet.

It’s funny to complain about how much you can’t stand your kids.  It’s cool to be a nagging wife.  It’s commonplace to have a thousand items on your to-do list that you can’t get to.

But when failure becomes the standard, we’re in for trouble.

It’s time to stop.  We don’t need to embrace failure.  We don’t need to put it on a pedestal as if it’s a good thing. Continue reading “Run so as to Win: A Spiritual Fitness Program”

Hope: How to Live with Confidence in God

A modern examination of conscience.  (But not too modern… we’re loyal to the teachings of the Catholic Church here!)

In God is my salvation and my glory: he is the God of my help, and my hope is in God.  Psalms 61:8

Our hope in God is different from “I hope it snows.”  The theological virtue of hope is not wishful thinking.

When we hope in God, we don’t expect good things to magically happen to us.  Hope means we believe in eternal salvation and we pray and act with confidence to attain it. Continue reading “Hope: How to Live with Confidence in God”

Live a Life of Faith This Year

A modern examination of conscience.  (But not too modern… we’re loyal to the teachings of the Catholic Church here!)

If you confess with your mouth… and believe in your heart… you shall be saved. Romans 10:9

As Christians, we know that our salvation in Jesus Christ comes with the responsibility to live a life of faith.  We can’t sit back and relax, expecting Jesus to do all the work.  We can’t be lazy in our spiritual life. Continue reading “Live a Life of Faith This Year”

God Needs Your Help in the Kitchen

Help God answer your prayers: how to work alongside Him in the kitchen just like my kids do for me at home.

God my Father, I love the moments when Your Divine Plan shines through the ordinary.  You were with me today in the midst of my normal family life.

In my kids’ eyes, I can do anything.  And I DO do most things for them.  I cook them dinner, I tie their shoes, I even tidy up their toys after they’re in bed.

And I take joy in being able to meet their needs.  To give to them.  To serve them.

But I’m not really omnipotent like they think I am. Continue reading “God Needs Your Help in the Kitchen”

Kick Down Your Pride with the Humility Virtue Challenge

A modern examination of conscience.  (But not too modern… we’re loyal to the teachings of the Catholic Church here!)

Many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.  Matthew 19:30

Humility:  First, say to yourself, “I’m such a terrible person.  I can’t do anything right.”  Now pick the most gruesome public mortification you can think of.  Go stand on the street corner and let the world know how awful you are.  Bingo.  Right?

Wrong. Continue reading “Kick Down Your Pride with the Humility Virtue Challenge”

6 Ways to Pray Like a Kid on an Escalator

If you know prayers, but have a hard time praying, try stepping out on one of these prayer escalators and letting God lift you up!

At just under three feet tall, that ever-ascending mountain of an escalator in front of him was a daunting task.  He took wobbly toddler steps, closer and closer, but stopped in his tracks where the floor started moving in front of him.

He put one tentative foot on the ribbed step, but when it started to pull away from him, he took a frightened jump back.  He tried again.  And again.  But he couldn’t make that first step stick. Continue reading “6 Ways to Pray Like a Kid on an Escalator”

Take the Meekness Virtue Challenge with Me!

A modern examination of conscience.  (But not too modern… we’re loyal to the teachings of the Catholic Church here!)

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5

Do you need to grow in meekness?  I know I do!

All too often we find ourselves letting anger get the best of us.  We raise our voices at our kids, or give the silent treatment to our spouse.  Parenting (heck, any relationship) can be frustrating, and it’s easy to let things get under our skin.

This month, we will take a closer look at meekness.  What is it, what does it call us to do or avoid, and how can we cultivate this virtue? Continue reading “Take the Meekness Virtue Challenge with Me!”
