Welcome to our Spirituality section
Here we hope you will find inspiration, and a source of strength through prayer, meditation and contemplation.
We have included a Meditation on an Icon. This ancient form of prayer originates from the Eastern Church and is closest to the spirit of Jesus and the Apostles. Simply read the meditation and follow the advice given. A new icon will be added every few weeks.
Faith Stories recall the inspirational lives of people who lived the teaching and spirit of the gospels in their daily lives.
Prayer Place is to encourage people to share their favorite prayers on our website. New prayers will be added as we receive them.
We also intend to add a Bookshelf for ideas on recommended books and literature to this section shortly.

Highlighting the link between the Eucharist (Christ’s gift of himself )
and a call to social justice. ( the gifting of self for other )
St. Christopher Magallanes and Companions
â€œLong live Christ the King and the Virgin of Guadalupe!â€�This was the slogan of the â€œCristeroâ€� uprising in the 1920â€™s against the anti-Catholic government of Mexico which had instituted and enforced laws against the Church in an absurd attempt to eradicate the Catholic faith in Mexico, even going so far as to ban all foreign clergy and the celebration of Mass in some regions.St. Christopher Magallanes, along with 21 other priests and three lay companions, were martyred between 1915 and 1937, by shooting or hanging, throughout eight Mexican states, for their membership in the Cristero movement. Magallanes erected a seminary in Totatiche and he and his companions secretly preached and ministered to the faithful.The last words heard spoken by Magallanes were from his cell, when he shouted, "I am innocent and I die innocent. I forgive with all my heart those responsible for my death, and I ask God that the shedding of my blood serve the peace of our divided Mexico".Pope John Paul II beatified the Cristero martyrs in 1992 and canonized them in 2000.
