I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Faith Like a Child

In asking my 6th graders why they pray, I was floored by their answers. In going around the room and reading one line they had each written about what the Lord helps them with, I couldn't help but smile.

Talk about the faith of a child.

It makes me wonder what happens to most of us as we grow older - Where does that faith go? What does our faith become? Why does doubt creep in?

Faith is much more than just emotions and feelings - it's rooted in truth.

So, for many of us (myself included) the question becomes, how do we get that child-like faith back?
