Lessons From A Monastery: Silence http://ow.ly/JUZ8g
“The first requirement for prayer is silence. People of prayer are people of silence.” –St. Mother Teresa Something that may come as a surprise when visiting a monastery (even if it is expected) is the silence you encounter there.

Why are Catholic Mom Blogs So Awesome? http://ow.ly/JUZ5K
Why are Catholic Mom Blogs so awesome? You can almost hear the holy noise of their children playing in the other room while they upload photos from last night’s Candlemas dinner party. Joy spills onto every homepage like that glass of orange juice the toddler knocked over this morning. Intelligence lies open on every blog …

Job’s Righteous Fatherhood: 3 Lessons from the Suffering Saint of the Old Testament from @catholicgent http://ow.ly/JS2I4
When we think of Job, we think of suffering. And it is true—Job suffered far more than any of us can imagine. Despite the fact that he was completely innocent, he endured intense physical pain, lack of sleep, hunger, the loss of his enormous wealth, the death of all of his children, and the insults and criticisms …

How Lent Can Strengthen Your Marriage http://ow.ly/JOVpS
I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that most people think about Lent as a time to enter more deeply into their personal spiritual life. However, when you think about it, Jesus’s Passion is about a relationship—His overpowering love for us and our attempts to love Him in return. What could be more fitting …

Why Read the Old Testament? http://ow.ly/JUZc9
When I was teaching my course on the Church this past fall (to a wonderful group of men studying to be permanent deacons), I realized that I needed to add something to our reading list: the Old Testament! We were trying to understand how the Church fit into God’s plan of salvation. We were trying …

Time is a treasure which is found only in this life; it is not found in the next, either in hell or in heaven. http://ow.ly/JUZkA
Value of Time “Son, observe the time.” cf Sirach 4:20 “Son,” says the Holy Ghost, “be careful to preserve time, which is the greatest and the most precious gift which God can bestow upon you in this life.” The very pagans knew the value of time. Seneca said that no price is an equivalent for …

Be an Apostle of the Sacrament of Confession http://ow.ly/JS1ON
Many have drifted away from having frequent recourse to the Sacrament of God’s mercy that we call Confession. The reasons are many! Some have never had their conscience well formed; others are paralyzed with fear; still others simply blurt out: “I have no sin!”  Be it as it may, this crisis must be conquered. The following …

Of St. Katharine Drexel, the Beverly Hillbillies, and Detachment http://ow.ly/JS1Fs
“Detachment from riches is obligatory for entrance into the Kingdom of heaven” (CCC 2544). Admit it. You know the entire Beverly Hillbillies theme song by heart, don’t you? And you can sing it from memory, start to finish. So can I. If you grew up on Jed and Jethro and Elly May like I did, …

Leprosy, Sin, and Quarantine: Lent to Restore Communion http://ow.ly/JOVlz
When you ask someone for their favorite Bible verse, people will often have widely varying answers. Some especially love the Psalms, some the Gospels, some the prophets, etc. But rarely will someone rattle off a passage from Leviticus.

Bringing the message of Christ as proclaimed by the Catholic Church to the world
Introduction
Catholic Exchange is a non-profit media organization that seeks to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world through the modern tools of mass communication. 

Inspired by Pope John Paul II's call for a "Springtime of a New Evangelization," and in faithfulness to Pope Benedict XVI, we strive to "put out into the deep" a relevant response to the need for greater catechesis and revival of the lay faithful.
