"The Chalice and the Pepsi Can - The Call to Holiness"

The perspective from which I'm sharing here on my blog, is of what I want my own children to know and understand.  What my prayers are for them, and for all souls.  This video by Father Joseph Hirsch is excellent in helping anyone to understand God's will for us... holiness. 

Fr. Hirsch gives his insights into what it means to listen to God's call to holiness for our lives. As a member of the office of Vocations for the Diocese of La Crosse, Fr. Hirsch encourages you to ground your life in prayer and discern where God is leading you, not only for your vocation, but also how we should view ourselves and others.  His message here is outstanding!

God's peace and love be with you.

Why Are There 7 Sacraments?

This is a terrific educational video (just 2 minutes long) about the Sacraments,  A super-easy to understand, brief video explaining why there are 7 Sacraments and how they relate to the 7 conditions of physical life.  The explanation in this video is from the great Archbishop Fulton Sheen. 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines a sacrament as "an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace given unto us, ordained by Christ himself, as a means whereby we receive the same, and a pledge to assure us thereof."  In short, a Sacrament is a sacred rite recognized as being of particular importance and significance to our faith.
