Pope Angelus: Let God Take Care of Tomorrow
2017-02-26 (Vatican Radio) During his Angelus address on Sunday in St Peter’s Square, Pope Francis took his cue from the Gospel reading of the day in which Jesus calls us not to worry about tomorrow, recalling that above all there is a loving Father who never forgets his children.
Trusting in him, explained the Holy Father, “will not magically solve our problems, but it lets us face them with the right frame of mind.” Read more here.

The annual diocesan conferences for men and women are both coming up in March, and early registration periods are coming to a close, so if you’ve been putting it off, today is as good a day as any to get registered.
First out of the gate is the Men’s Conference, featuring speaker Trent Horn, which is set for March 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Marshall School in Duluth. Horn is a convert to the Catholic faith with a degree in theology from Franciscan University. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy from Holy Apostles College and is a regular guest on the radio program Catholic Answers Live, a lecturer and author of two books.Read More

Thirty-plus years ago my husband and I made the decision to plant our roots in northern Minnesota. We knew that came with some benefits, but this decision also came with some challenges. My husband was mostly raised in the Green Bay area, and I grew up outside Chicago. At that time, the closest family member was eight hours away with a difficult drive at best. Thankfully the highways have improved since then.
The disadvantages of living so far away from our extended family meant that a great effort was needed to maintain our family ties and connect our children with their relatives. It was tough, at times, to hear about the parties or special events that other family members attended nearby, while distance prevented us from participating. Nieces and nephews were born, and it would sometimes be months and too often years before we met them in person.Read More
