I Heard God Laugh
Prayer is life-changing and empowering but not always easy. Prayer is an antidote to anxiety, an expression of gratitude, a comfort during crisis, and a guide to conflict resolution.
No matter your background or season of life, prayer is attainable and a force of change.
I Heard God Laugh by Matthew Kelly has become a staff favorite. It's half memoir and half how-to.
It's short but packs a punch.

January 24th Homily
The Hebrew word for repent means to turn around. It is a change of mind, a change of heart, which leads to a change in direction.
Whether we're bogged down with regret, doubt, or uncertainty, this kind of turning around can open new pathways.
