Instead of Sour Grapes?

Sour Grapes

Saul of Tarsus worked hard as a Pharisee, but produced no more than bitter fruit. Others sit around and look pious, but never produce a blasted thing. What's the secret to bearing high yields of sweet abundant fruit instead of just foliage or sour grapes? Check out this week's commentary on God’s Word at the Crossroads Initiative.

What are our Kids Worth???

We Need your help!We don’t ask often.  But we need your help in a very special way right now.

 

We are in the midst of exciting projects that can have enormous impact on reaching the millions of youth all over the world who are dropping out of an active life of faith.  To do this, we need your immediate assistance.

We announced two goals after Easter:

 

1) 100 people to pledge a dollar per day -- $30 per month.

2) Special, immediate gifts totaling $20,000.

 

We are happy to report that 10 have stepped forward to pledge a dollar per day – we just need 90 more.  Will you help us get to 100?

 

We’ve raised $4,400 in one time gifts.  We just need to raise $15,600 more!  Can you help?  

You can do it online right here, by phone at 800-803-0118, or by mailing a check to Crossroads, PO BOX 271227, Flower Mound, TX 75027.

 

Yes, there are lots of ministries and charities.  But don’t you think the spiritual future of our youth is a top priority?

Faithfully in Christ,

 

Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio and the Crossroads Board, Staff and Volunteers.

"The Talk." It's one of the most daunting prospects parents face. Communicating the richness of Catholic teaching on sexuality in a faithful and effective way can be an overwhelming responsibility. But does it have to be so?

In this thoroughly revised version of Beyond the Birds and the Bees, Greg and Lisa Popcak empower you with the tools needed to move well beyond "the Talk" by offering a comprehensive guide to raising sexually whole and holy children. Using the riches of Blessed John Paul II's Theology of the Body, the Popcaks help you safely navigate your children from infancy through the teenage years and beyond.

 The Handbook for Catholic Moms

The Handbook for Catholic Moms
Drawing from the deep tradition of the Catholic faith, Lisa Hendey coaches Catholic moms in how to care for themselves—heart, mind, body, and soul—so that they can better love and care for their families, their neighbors, and their Church.
With warmth and wisdom, Hendey creates an environment where Catholic moms can reflect peacefully upon often-competitive topics like parenting style, types of schooling, and working outside the home. By sharing her own story, Hendey inspires readers to better balance their own needs with the demands of family life and faith commitment.
