Daily Catholic Question

How should we deal with difficult or distant family members?

Although you cannot control others' behavior, you can protect yourself from getting sucked into their resentment. If they refuse to have physical contact with you, perhaps you should urge them to confine their e-mails to more pleasant subjects. Try setting your own boundaries in such relationships, rather than accepting those dictated by others.

Daily Catholic Question for 9/4/2013 Daily Catholic Question for 9/6/2013


Rose of Viterbo: Rose achieved sainthood in only 18 years of life. Even as a child Rose had a great desire to pray and to aid the poor. While still very young, she began a life of penance in her parents’ house. She was as generous to the poor as she was strict with herself. At the age of 10 she became a Secular Franciscan and soon began preaching in the streets about sin and the sufferings of Jesus.
<p>Viterbo, her native city, was then in revolt against the pope. When Rose took the pope’s side against the emperor, she and her family were exiled from the city. When the pope’s side won in Viterbo, Rose was allowed to return. Her attempt at age 15 to found a religious community failed, and she returned to a life of prayer and penance in her father’s home, where she died in 1251. Rose was canonized in 1457.</p> American Catholic Blog Obedience is not a joke, it is a sacrifice. The more you love God, the more you will obey. Obedience is a cross—pick up your cross and follow him. Everyone in the world has to obey in some way or another. People are forced to obey or they will lose their jobs. But we obey out of love for Jesus.
