Whether by yourself or in groups...

Sitting under blue skies

In a cove,

Energized by the sea,

over coffee

Inspiration whispers

words

​"Come, sit with me."

Write - and the journey begins-

Resisting Happiness


Matthew Kelly's book challenges us to prioritize what is important for our lives and to see where we resist that happiness.


Inspired by his work, our Angels' writing group reflected on ways that we 'resist' God's invitation and the ways that we ultimately seek God's Plan.

Writing Essentials:

Write daily.

​Write freely.

The journey of writing is like a pilgrimage.  Along the road, we befriend others as well as our deepest memories.  Our souls yearn to find meaning and to give thanks.

Writing is balm for the soul

Using a chapter from her Journal section in Moments of Grace: a Collection of Poetry Inspired by Faith,  author, Mary Olivia Patiño will  customize a morning or day of reflection for your venue.

As ashes are placed on the foreheads of the faithful, we hear these words:


"Repent and believe in the Gospel."

or 

"Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
