The Gift of Our Priests – Reflections from World Youth Day

by Maria Cossell

Like my fellow pilgrims that traveled to Krakow for World Youth Day, I journeyed with specific intentions in mind.  My prayer and hope was to see fruits for these particular intentions by offering up sufferings.  Little did I know what prayer intention the Lord would actually place on my heart while I was in Poland.

One day Fr. Eric Augenstein graciously took a small group of young adults on a tour of sites that pertained specifically to the life of St. John Paul II.  As we stood outside St. John Paul II’s home parish, St. Stanislaus Kostka, Fr. Eric  recounted how the church was run by a group of Salesians.  All of the priests except one who was in his eighties were sent to concentration camps by the Nazis.  Eleven priests who served this church died for their faith.  They freely chose to love and follow Jesus till their last breath.  

All of a sudden I was overcome by a sense of sadness and anxiety.  At first I struggled to understand why I was feeling this way.  For five years I have taught sixth graders about World War II.  Each year I talk about how priests were killed.  I talk to my students about the truth of underground churches currently in our world.  Fr. Eric’s story should have come to no surprise for me.  However, it hit me like a ton of bricks.  Without priests we, the Church cannot come into union with Christ in the very intimate way of the Eucharist.  I never want to live in a time period where it is a struggle to be able to receive the heart of our Lord in communion.  

It was then I realized how I take for granted the gift of the priesthood and the presence of Jesus in the holy sacrament of the altar. On any day of the week I have a plethora of churches and mass times to choose from.  I can pop into an adoration chapel any time I feel like it, no matter the hour of the day.

Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace

by Dana Petricka

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary…pray for me as I write this blog!

Our Blessed Mother Mary has been someone I have always wished I had a better relationship with, but I never really knew how to.  Growing up, I wasn’t catechized well in my Catholic faith, and I was heavily involved in a non-denominational ministry at my high school.  Of course, little was ever mentioned about Mary.  I learned a lot about Jesus, which was integral to my faith life, but Mary remained a figure in the Bible who I only thought about at Christmas time when we would read about the Nativity story.

In college, I began to learn more about my Catholic faith than I ever had in my life, and I was thirsting for knowledge.   I was also first introduced to the dogmas and doctrines on Mary, such as the Immaculate Conception and other devotions that I had a hard time grasping, at this time.  “Why was Mary focused on so much when we have Jesus?” I thought.

I remember many of my friends from my Newman Center at North Dakota State University wore these cool looking chain link bracelets around their wrist, and I wanted one.  One day I finally asked where they got them, and one of my friends replied that he had consecrated himself to Mary and that was the outward sign of his consecration.  I was a little disappointed and pretty weirded out.

Our Father’s Love

by Katie Sahm

My dearest child,

I have been waiting so long for you,

Yes, you.

Did you know? I love with an everlasting love

And you are mine.

For you I have come.

You have captured my heart.

Stay with me, remain here in my love.

All I have is yours

All I am is for you.

I wish to fill your heart with all that you long for.

Let me

Let me love you.

Please, I beg you, let me hold you.

I’ve longed for you incessantly, always looking toward the horizon, watching, waiting for you to come home.

And now you are here with me.

I cannot contain my joy – it abounds!

And my spirit pours forth…

Please, let me in, please open your heart.

All I have ever wanted was to be with you, my daughter, my son.

By coming to me, you have given me my one desire – you.

O how you’ve consoled my heart, my fair one.

It is for you that I came to this earth

It is you whom I give my body.

It was my love for you, yes you, that gave me the courage to get upon that cross.

Every drop of blood was for you

It’s all been for you.

Please, please believe.

I ask for your trust.

Know that all I do is out of love and mercy for you.

O my anxious one, I see your burden

I feel your heavy heart.

All your worry, all the darkness…

I want it all.

Let me be your light, come to me.

I will take care of you

I will provide.

One day all your tears will be wiped away.

The joy you seek is real

The love you long for exists

There is peace, I promise.

Oh how happy I am – for you are here

With me once again.

I have looked forward to this day for so long.

This moment, when I get to embrace my child and pour so many graces upon you.

I give myself freely

Just let me love you.

I am your great encourager

I am the one who gives you strength

I am your hope.

I am the way, the truth

I am life.

There is so much I want to give you

Things you can’t even fathom.

And they are yours, my child, your inheritance.

Receive the gifts I offer

I want you to have them.

It is my desire to lavish my love on you

Simply because you are my child

And I am your Father.

“Though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor and though I give my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. Love suffereth and love is kind. Love envieth not. Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away childish things. But now abideth faith, hope, love… these three. But the greatest of these is love.”

It’s worth it: Our Journey with NFP

by Liz Escoffery

Use NFPWhen I was in college, I attended an annual dorm retreat for women. During the retreat, a dorm chaplain and her husband introduced something called Natural Family Planning (NFP). They would prayerfully discern each cycle whether or not God was calling them to welcome a new child into their family. Then, with the scientific knowledge of the woman’s daily discharge observations, they would select days of fertility or infertility to come together. It seemed like this would be hard, involve lots of education on how our bodies work, and necessitate self-mastery and sacrificing on the part of the husband and the wife. Yet, I remember feeling a sense of awe and wonder about the vocation of Christian marriage. I thought to myself, “That sounds worth it.”

Around the same time, I had the opportunity to read Pope Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae. I was drawn to the simple, yet compelling language. Humanae Vitae says,

“(Married) love is destined to continue, raising up new lives…Children are really the supreme gift of marriage and contribute very substantially to the welfare of their parents.”

It explains the nature of marriage, the goodness of sexual intimacy, and speaks pastorally to many couples’ need to space or limit pregnancies during the course of one’s marriage and says that this need is legitimate. The knowledge of one’s fertility can allow each couple to achieve or postpone pregnancies throughout the childbearing years.

When I became engaged to Bill, signing up for a NFP course was a no-brainer. We began meeting with our practitioner for one-on-one instruction and began charting. At first, I found that I was marking almost every day as fertile. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” I said, thinking I must be the most fertile woman on the face of the earth which made me skeptical that it would even work for us. We needed patience and quite a bit of further instruction to understand that it was not possible to be as fertile as much as I thought. Now as a practitioner myself, I smile when I think back to those days of early learning and hope it allows me to relate better to my clients with difficult or confusing charts.

Receiving the Heart of Jesus

by Maria Cossell

How many times a day does someone pass you by, say hi, and ask how you are doing?  For me, this is multiple times a day.  Stating that I am fine or doing great and asking how the other person is has become so repetitive that I just spit it out of my mouth like a robot.  I do not even think before I speak that I am actually flat out lying to someone.  I am never one-hundred percent great or fine, nor am I always a sad person or a “Negative Nancy” either.  What I am saying is that I am not perfectly content.  There always seems to be a part of me that longs for more of something.  From time to relax and spend quality time with friends and families to desiring more of a specific food or new clothes for my wardrobe, I am constantly searching for more.

For the majority of my life I thought that my happiness was based completely on my actions and what society said would make me happy.  From studying hard in grade school and playing those good old CYO sports to going to college and landing a job.  As each birthday passed I would always dream about how next year I would be happier with life and would continually try harder to make happiness come my way.  I was driving myself crazy because I was never living in the present moment and was always wanting more.

Then a couple years ago I heard a talk that turned my world upside down.  I heard that I will never be completely happy on this Earth even though we are all on a quest for it.  The desire for happiness is too big for any material possession, perfect job, or friendship to complete.  The Catechism states that…

“the desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself.  Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for” (27).

The Lord is using this longing for more to draw us to Himself.  However, as humans we do anything possible to try to quickly fill this ache for happiness within us, from searching for the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend to having the best material possessions. For example, we think that if we just have that new iPhone then we will be happy.  However, over time that happiness fades and we desire more.  So what do we do?  We buy the newest version of the iPhone, and the cycle continues.  We fail to realize that the finite can never fill the infinite desire in our hearts.  Only God can.


As all these new concepts started to sink into my head, my heart ached to know the Lord better.  I desired for Him to complete the longing in my heart for more.  I began to aim my desires to Him and take time to learn more about Him on my own.  For example, as I took the time to learn more about Eucharistic Miracles my love for the Eucharist sky rocketed.

About Bl. Ozanam… A Student Who Made a Difference
The year was 1831. At 18 years old, Frédéric Ozanam arrived in Paris to study law at the University of the Sorbonne. He loved learning, and he loved his faith. But life was hard in early 19th-century Paris. A lot of people were hungry and out of work. As young Frédéric found, many also had lost their own faith. When professors mocked Catholic teachings, Frédéric vigorously defended the Church. He started a club to debate social problems and solutions. One day, as he talked about the Church’s role in society, a member blurted, “What do you do besides talk to prove the faith you claim?” Young Frédéric rose to the challenge. He organized friends to serve in Paris tenements. He also met with Rosalie Rendu, a Daughter of Charity known for helping the poor. With her guidance, Frédéric formed the organization that became the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Frédéric went on to become a journalist, professor and public speaker dedicated to faith and service. He continued to aid the needy and speak out for his faith throughout his life. Today, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul serves millions of needy people worldwide, and Blessed Frédéric Ozanam remains an inspiring example for young men and women seeking to change the world.

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati House

The Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati house, located downtown Indy, is a place for men to come together in everyday life and prayer. By living in community, the house’s residents strive to build each other up into the men that God created men to be using Blessed Pier as an example of service, prayer, and a passion for adventure. Coming together as role models and friends allows the young men of the house to give each other the strength and support to carry their love for Christ to the world as upstanding men of faith.
