Who is Our Lady of Hope?
In 1871 Mary appeared to children in Pontmain, France, which was facing invasion of war at the time. Mary encouraged the people to pray and have hope. The war ended the next day and did not reach the village. Since then, Mary under the title of Our Lady of Hope, has been associated with this apparition.

Answer: There are a couple of elements in your question that I would like to address individually.Read More

If you are an outdoorsman, November is the most wonderful time of the year! Hunting is in the air, and although hunting is an interest of both sexes, I certainly see more wives alone at Mass during this time than I see husbands. Often, women will refer to themselves as hunter’s widows.
Though I was born and raised in northeastern Minnesota, I was never a big hunter. For several years, I would hunt pheasant on my family’s property, but I personally never got into big game like deer or bear. But I sure appreciate hunters, and I have to admit I am attracted to the idea of going hunting more often than I do. (Last time I went, I got a tick with Lyme Disease.)Read More
