Fix Your Gaze Upon The Cross
He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief... — Isaiah 53:3⁠ ⁠ Today we are called to fix our gaze on the cross.⁠ ⁠ Truly, this week is holy, for the Son of God embraced His passion. He suffered and died that we might die to our sins, and receive the gift of Eternal Life.⁠

How To Explain Your Ashes
Have you ever been asked about your Ash Wednesday ashes? During the Ash Wednesday service our foreheads are adorned with ashes followed by the words: "For you are dust, And to dust you shall return." (Gen. 3:19) ​ ​This physical sign commemorates the beginning of our Lenten season of sacrifice and spiritual growth.

Easter is the beginning of our new life with Christ!
Easter is the beginning of our new life with Christ! For Catholics, Easter isn't just a single day of celebration—it's an entire season where we celebrate our new life in Christ. ​ ​Although our Lenten journey is complete, we must not forget to create space for prayer in our daily lives. We ought to spend time with our Risen Lord. Give Him your heart as you kneel before the tabernacle. ​ ​Pope St. John Paul II, pray for us!

Lent Is The Path To The Cross
Ash Wednesday is finally here, and thus the beginning of Lent.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Ash Wednesday reminds us that we are not immortal and to live every day as if it is our last, fervently praying to the Lord for mercy and forgiveness.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Lent is the path to the cross. It's our chance to deny ourselves and ready ourselves to carry it. We journey to the cross of Good Friday, but our true destination is the Easter resurrection.

​Alleluia! He is risen!
“O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?” — 1 Corinthians 15:55 ​ ​Alleluia! He is risen! This is the most joyous feast of the year. Christ's death and resurrection are the foundation of the Christian faith. The churches are now filled with Jesus' presence and with His Light. They are no longer silent, as we join our voices and songs of praise with the choirs in heaven. Celebrate this Easter season to the fullest and see our Easter collection at CatholicCompany.com.

Good Friday At Home: 5 Tips For Families & Individuals
On Good Friday we contemplate—and enter deeply into—the suffering and crucifixion of Our Lord. Like the Apostles, we mourn the death of Jesus. This is the only day of the year when Mass is not offered by any priest, anywhere. And this year, we acutely feel the “loss” of our Jesus. Now we know what it is like to not have Him readily available to us in the Most Holy Eucharist.
