Daily Catholic Question

What does the Bible say about Caleb?

You will find what we know about Caleb in the Books of Numbers and Joshua. Caleb was the son of Jephunneh of the tribe of Judah. Numbers lists him among the 12 Moses sent to reconnoiter the land of Canaan (Chapters 13—14). They were told to report on the population of the land, their military strength, the fertility of the soil, etc.

All recognized the bounty of the crops. But none besides Caleb urged trying to take possession. The others were fearful and defeatist.

When the people threatened revolt and rejection of Moses and Aaron, Caleb with Joshua urged fidelity to God. Because of Caleb's "different spirit," God promised to bring him into the promised land along with Joshua while those rebelling wander in the desert without entering the land.

In Joshua 14—15 Caleb reminded Joshua, who succeeded Moses, of God's promise. Joshua then gave Hebron to Caleb and Caleb drove out the Anakim people.

Daily Catholic Question for 1/9/2013 Daily Catholic Question for 1/11/2013


Gianna Beretta Molla: 
		<p>In less than 40 years, Gianna Beretta Molla became a pediatric physician, a wife, a mother and a saint! </p>
		<p>She was born in Magenta (near Milano) as the 10th of Alberto and Maria’s 13 children. An active member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Gianna earned degrees in medicine and surgery from the University of Pavia and opened a clinic in Mesero. Gianna also enjoyed skiing and mountain climbing.</p>
		<p>Shortly before her 1955 marriage to Pietro Molla, Gianna wrote to him: “Love is the most beautiful sentiment that the Lord has put into the soul of men and women.” She and Peter had three children, Pierlluigi, Maria Zita and Laura. </p>
		<p>Early in the pregnancy for her fourth child, doctors discovered that Gianna had both a child and a tumor in her uterus. She allowed the surgeons to remove the tumor but not to perform the complete hysterectomy that they recommended, which would have killed the child. Seven months later, Gianna Emanuela was born, The following week Gianna Beretta Molla died in Monza of complications from childbirth. She is buried in Mesero.</p>
		<p>Gianna Emanuela went on to become a physician herself. Gianna Beretta Molla was beatified in 1994 and canonized 10 years later.</p>
American Catholic Blog Jesus will manifest Himself through us to each other and to the world, and by His love, others will know that we are His disciples. In spite of all our defects, God is in love with us and keeps using us to light the light of love and compassion in the world. So give Jesus a big smile and a hearty thank-you.
