The Difference you need in your day could be prayer...

"D" Topics and Links!





"the Difference!"

by Grace L. Naessens



I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I didn't have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me.
and heavier came each task
"Why doesn't God help me?" I wondered
He answered, "You didn't ask."

I wanted to see joy and beauty
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak
I wondered why God didn't show me
He said, "Because you didn't seek."

I tried to come into God's presence
I used all my keys at the lock
God gently and lovingly chided,
"My child, you didn't knock."

I woke up early this morning.
and paused before entering the day,
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.




Take time to pray daily...we need it!

Did You Know?



There are over 60 million Catholics in the U.S., and about 1 billion Catholics world-wide!

Catholicism is the most popular religious belief on earth, followed closely by members of all branches of Islam.

The Catholic Church is the world's oldest existing organization, going back almost 2,000 years to the time it was started by Jesus Christ.

The name "Catholic" means "universal" - a good name for a world-wide Church.

You'll find this fact in history books, encyclopedias and some dictionaries. World-wide, 3 out of every 5 Christians are Catholics!

The name "Catholic Church" is known to date back to circa 100 A.D. Since this is about the time of the Apostle John's death, it is safe to say that the name Catholic Church goes back to the time of the first 12 Apostles.

Millions of Christians say the Apostles or Nicean Creeds, which uses the phrase "...I believe in the Holy Catholic Church..." The Nicean creed dates back to 325 A.D., and some versions of the Apostles Creed date back to at least the 3rd century.

The Catholic Church operates more private schools than any other organization on earth.

The Catholic Church has more hospitals than any other non-profit institution.

All Catholic Charities combined provide more relief and social services than any other non-governmental organization!

It's a fact! The Bible, common sense and history all support Catholic teaching! HEY, the Church hasn't made it almost 2,000 by accident, you know!

If you or a friend has a question about Catholic teaching, Bible questions, etc., let us know, and we'll gladly share an answer!

Be Proud!      Be Bold!

                 Be Happy!     Be Catholic!
