A Lenten Prayer for Good Friday

Jesus, no one knows change better than you. You died on the cross, and three days later you rose from the dead. Forty days later you ascended into heaven and left the world transformed for the rest of time. Help me to transform my soul, to die to sin and death and be reborn in your love a...

A Prayer for Holy Thursday

Jesus, in these last few days leading up to Easter, as I recall your passion and death, let me remember that, above all, I am called to feed your sheep. You have given me a model of how to live; may I strive to be all that you created me for, spreading the love of God and the truth of our Cath...

An Athlete's Prayer

God, I offer myself to you – to build with me and to do with me as you desire. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do your will.

A Poem by Mother Theresa

This poem was written by Mother Theresa and is engraved on the wall of her home for children in Calcutta.

People are often unreasonable, illogical

And self-centered;

Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may

Accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will w...

Mattie's Poetry - An Excerpt from Mattie Stepanek's Book

On Being a Champion

A Champion is a winner,

A hero…

Someone who never gives up

Even when the going gets rough.

A Champion is a member of

a winning team…

Someone who overcomes challenges

Even when it requires creative solutions.

A champion is an optimist.

A hopeful spirit…

Praying the Words of Cardinal Newman

God has created me to do Him some definite service; he has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. God has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of pe...

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a...

An Athlete's Prayer

The significance of oneself cannot be measured by the fame and glory of my athletic accomplishments but by the love and compassion I have shown to others every day of my life, without fame or glory or thanks just in the name of love.  May all the little things we do for one another count as the most...

A Prayer for Transformation


Loving Father,
I invite you into my life today
and make myself available to you.
Help me to become the-best-version-of-myself
by seeking your will and becoming a living example

in order for me to carry out t...
