I love how this photo turned out! Spent the afternoon up at Estes Park and came back via the Peak to Peak Highway.

Great story behind this beautiful building... One August night in 1916, Monsignor Joseph Bosetti saw a shooting star fall from the sky and land among the aspen and pine at the foot of Mt Meeker. In a quest to find the meteor, what he found instead was the large rock formation on which the chapel now stands. The rock reminded him of the scripture, "Upon this rock I'll build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Twenty years later, his vision became a reality. In 1936, St. Catherine of Siena Chapel was completed and stands here day having escaped a fire in 2011 and a mudslide in 2013. Designed by Denver architect Jacques Benedict, it is affectionately known as the Chapel on the Rock.

From The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Siena.  God speaking to the soul.  O Yahweh may I love: may my soul cleave to your love and may that love radiate outward to everyone around me.

St. Catherine of Siena said “be who God created you to be and you will set the world on fire!” You can’t set the world on fire unless you IGNITE your soul first! So after much thought prayer and discernment the new name for Crosstraining is IGNITE. In hopes of creating disciples and setting the world on fire! 🔥 #cotrna #youthministry #highschool #stcatherineofsiena #prayforus

Tuesday sharing of my Patron Saint - St Catherine of Siena.
.
This prayer from St Catherine also reminds me of Ephesians 6. That with asking for mercy, we may also receive His strength and power for things in our day to fight and resist.
.
.
“Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate,
and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all [the] flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”. - Ephesians 6:13-17

I can remember the night we brought home our first baby, Lucia. Let's just say, I'm still suffering the post-traumatic shock of it all 😄! But seriously. It was painful. It was terrifying. I'm still making up for lost sleep. But we endured those endless nights. And we endured the growing pains of toddlerhood (God save me). And NOW we have this amazing little girl five-year-old who is healthy, happy, and a blessing to be around (at least until she turns 13). ⠀
⠀
We're all enduring something right now. Each and every one of us. It's so important to remind ourselves daily of the goal, the point, the purpose of the struggle. What is that golden achievement that keeps you from losing your hope? Frame it! Put Post-It notes all around to remind you. Find that friend or family member who will cheer you on when it gets tough. And remember, "Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring..."⠀

I’m sure St Catherine won’t mind that I share her Tuesday spotlight with St John Climacus, who I admit, never heard of!
.
Like I was told one time in confession when I shared how I was angry with someone who causes hardship to his children. Priest instructed me to turn to God in those moments and say “Jesus, you know the truth!” This response can also go towards those whom you’ve been good and kind too, but they like to shun you back instead.
.
St John Climacus, pray for us. Especially at this time as a nation!

We are called to be brave, even when it’s uncomfortable, even when it might not give you the result you hoped you would receive. There’s a voice deep within that calls you to more, to intentionality, and to trust. Knowing that that act of bravery was not wasted. It is building up strength within you. You are never alone. You are known. You are loved.

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2 //⠀
⠀
You are beautifully made and God delights in YOU. This world is constantly telling you lies, such as "You are not good enough" or "If only you had what they have, then you'd be happy." But as christians, we know that we are not called to live according to this world or to be slaves to our own desires. We are called to be who God created us to be. When we start comparing ourselves to others, we ignore what God has for us. Saint Catherine of Sienna said " Be who God created you to be, and you will set this world on fire." She didn't say, once you become more like your neighbor or once you acquire a certain amount of worldly materials, then you will set the world on fire. No. She said "Be who GOD created YOU to be." You are beautiful. You are good. So do not be conformed to this world, live so as to be transformed and saved by God. He will not lead you astray.⠀

God revealing to Saint Catherine of Siena how our souls in heaven are so united with God in perfect love, that a mother or father seeing their son in hell or vice versa...won’t trouble us. In fact, we are happy to see God’s enemies punished. I was mind blown on this one. We do everything we can here on earth to share God’s salvation, but in the end it will be between God and us alone. We do our best to teach others because that is what we are called to do as Christians, especially family members who we love and want to be with in heaven...but God gives many chances in His mercy & if in the end they reject His goodness and mercy, that is on them. Jesus & Mother Mary, save souls🙏🏼 #stcatherineofsiena #thedialogueofstcatherineofsiena

One of my all time favorites by St. Catherine of Siena🥰 .
.
St. Catherine of Siena (1347–1380) was born in Siena, Italy, the 24th of 25 children (ya, you saw that right😆🙌🏼) born to a wealthy wool dyer and his wife. Catherine began having profound mystical experiences at the age of six which encouraged her in a life of virtue, extreme penance, and total consecration to God through a private vow of virginity. She became a Dominican Tertiary at the age of 16 while continuing to live in the home of her parents. She had regular mystical visits from, and conversations with, Jesus, Mary, and many of the saints. Catherine had no formal education and was illiterate, yet her theological knowledge acquired through prayer astounded learned theologians. She was especially devoted to working for the unity and spiritual health of the Church. .
.
Among her most famous accomplishments was that she persuaded the Pope to return to Rome from Avignon in 1377. She also encouraged him to call for a Crusade to the Holy Land. She was an important political figure in her day, often entering into negotiations between warring rulers through personal visits and dictated letters. Her practical wisdom and profound spiritual insight was widely sought both inside and outside the Church. St. Catherine was a great mystic and was granted the stigmata which was made visible only after her death. She died in Rome at the age of 33, offering her life to God for the sanctification of the Church, and was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1970. St. Catherine of Siena is the patron saint of Italy and Europe.

St. Catherine of Siena, ora pro nobis❤️

One of my all time favorites by St. Catherine of Siena🥰 .
.
St. Catherine of Siena (1347–1380) was born in Siena, Italy, the 24th of 25 children (ya, you saw that right😆🙌🏼) born to a wealthy wool dyer and his wife. Catherine began having profound mystical experiences at the age of six which encouraged her in a life of virtue, extreme penance, and total consecration to God through a private vow of virginity. She became a Dominican Tertiary at the age of 16 while continuing to live in the home of her parents. She had regular mystical visits from, and conversations with, Jesus, Mary, and many of the saints. Catherine had no formal education and was illiterate, yet her theological knowledge acquired through prayer astounded learned theologians. She was especially devoted to working for the unity and spiritual health of the Church. .

The Victorian Teachers of Italian hosted a cultural day for Year 10 Italian students across the state. Students heard from first year Italian University students, learned about Italy’s role in manufacturing and trade, and enjoyed a live band who played both traditional and modern Italian songs.

This week we celebrate the feast days of two women of deep faith and devotion to Christ. Yesterday it was St Mary Magdalene, the first recorded witness to His Resurrection. According to tradition, after Jesus' Ascension, she continued a life of evangelism and contemplation for thirty more years until her death.  Today it is of St. Bridget of Sweden, who came to Rome in 1349 to found a hospice for her needy compatriots and along with her daughter, St. Catherine of Sweden, founded the Bridgettine Sisters.  Both lived in a convent in Rome for many years. During our "Women Saints through the Centuries" pilgrimage this October, we will venerate relics of these saints, first of St. Mary Magdalene at the church of San Giovanni Battista dei Fiorentini and then of Sts. Bridget and Catherine of Sweden, at the convent where they both lived (photo). Join us  and encounter these and other women of faith, from history and today!  There is still time to register prior to the August deadline!

Do you worry?
St.Catherine has some great advice: “He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined. Leave it all to Him...“
-St. Catherine of Siena

And a P.S. for anyone traveling to/passing through Rome: this gorgeous statue of St. Catherine is right outside Castel Sant’Angelo at the beginning of Via Della Conciliazione, the street leading up to St. Peter’s Basilica. It’s almost like you were catching St. Catherine as she was walking to see the Pope!
