“Pasado el sábado, María Magdalena, María la de Santiago y Salomé compraron aromas para ir a embalsamarle. Y muy de madrugada, el primer día de la semana, a la salida del sol, van al sepulcro. Se decían unas otras: «¿Quién nos retirará la piedra de la puerta del sepulcro?» Y levantando los ojos ven que la piedra estaba ya retirada; y eso que era muy grande. Y entrando en el sepulcro vieron a un joven sentado en el lado derecho,… Read more

“When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had… Read more

The story of my uncle My uncle Mario was an exceedingly talented musician and a warrior. He was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer about five years ago. After a long and arduous fight with this terrible disease, my uncle passed from this life to the next. He was only 60 years old. Like any of us, his life was filled with beautiful and sad experiences. He married once and divorced shortly afterwards. I was never really close to him but… Read more

There he goes, carrying his cross, on his way to Calvary. We watch as he goes by, but nobody really wants to look. It makes us uncomfortable. It is a gruesome sight and a gut-wrenching experience. “He had no form or comeliness that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief and as one from whom men hide their faces… Read more

Family time is the best time of the week for us. We try to have that as much as we can. If we could we would have it every day…but not all day long, of course. We need our space too. We need our “husband and wife time” alone … with no kids. This is very important for us as well. Without this time of intimacy, we would’ve already lost our minds … completely! But we truly do enjoy investing… Read more

I live in Texas. It’s as “red” as it can get. It is an extremely conservative state. There are many religious Bible-adhering God-fearing folks. Many are well intentioned people. They love their families, their property and their religious liberty. These are all considered blessings the Lord has bestowed on them. They are very protective of these blessings and they are willing to defend them at any cost. Literally. In one of our recent HOA group chats somebody reported that our… Read more

El tiempo en familia es el mejor momento de la semana para nosotros. Tratamos de tenerlo tanto como podamos. Si pudiéramos, lo tendríamos todos los días … pero claro, ¡no todo el día! Necesitamos nuestro espacio también. Necesitamos nuestro “tiempo de marido y mujer” a solas … sin hijos. Esto es muy importante para nosotros también. Sin este tiempo de intimidad ya habríamos perdido la cabeza … por completo. Pero realmente disfrutamos invirtiendo tiempo en nuestros hijos: jugando con ellos,… Read more

  With all the recent Church scandals, why even bother staying in the Church? Many well-intentioned Catholics are asking themselves this. The recent sexual abuse scandal is definitely shaking the faith of many. Hoping to help anyone who might be struggling with that question, I would like to share some of my thoughts and personal experience. I came back to the Church 11 years ago as a 20-year-old young adult in search of truth. I had been away from God… Read more

The story of Miguel On a cold winter morning, my father and I looked out the living room window and glimpsed something unusual in the middle of the street: a coatless man lying in the fetal position. It was around 6 a.m.; the sun hadn’t peaked yet. The darkness prevented us from recognizing the man until we got very near to him. That’s when we realized he was our next door neighbor, Miguel. He had too much alcohol the night… Read more

A few months before marrying the girl of my dreams, friends and relatives would tell us that we should keep our feet on the ground, that our “romantic love” would fade away and turn into a cold, distant relationship within the first years of marriage, and that we wouldn’t have the time or energy to sustain our affectionate relationship after children came into the picture. Of course, our loved ones would also congratulate us and express their joy, but many… Read more
